This race is locked up. It’s locked up to that point that I am actually using it as part of my argument for Best Picture.
Alfonso Cuarón hasn’t lost a single race in his march to Oscar glory. It makes sense seeing as he made use of every single minute of screen time. Each shot was so well calculated and packed with meaning. It is really a director’s film.
Had “12 Years a Slave” maintained the strength it had earlier in the race, then Steve McQueen would have a chance, but without a DGA win his chances have pretty much been skunked.
