It’s ‘Up in the Air’ for the Florida and St. Louis Critics

More precursor love comes in for Up in the Air today. This is the kind of precursor season that I really enjoy – one in which there is no frontrunner. It’s been pretty much a dead heat between Up in the Air and The Hurt Locker with Inglourious Basterds throwing the occasional kink in the race. Up in the Air maintains a slight lead in the overall precursor while The Hurt Locker leads in the Best Picture category. Check out the precursor charts and the recent critics awards listed below.
