    I'm trying to get in as many Oscar-nominated films as possible before the ceremony, and I'm wondering if Black Hawk Down is eligible for this years' awards. I belive it was released in LA & NYC in December, which would make it eligible, but I don't see it mentioned on many lists of Oscar candidates. Anyone know the scoop?

    Yes, it was released in NY/LA in December specifically to qualify for the Oscars.

    Go to Reel.com and look at Welles's column (H'wood Confidential).
    He has it listed as one of his favorites to get a nomination (his prediction favorites, not necessarily his choices). He tries to read the buzz around town out there, at Sundance, plus good old gut feelings. [​IMG]

    Or you can look at the HTF's own thread with our Oscar predictions. Many (if not most) of us have Black Hawk Down in our final 5.
    In fact, I would agree with Wells' latest column - the film that has the best chance to snatch the BP Oscar from A Beautiful Mind is Black Hawk Down.

    You can also view the list of eligible films that can be nominated on the AMPAS web site.

    The eligibility rules for films
    are quite simple.
    From the AMPAS website:
    "Eligible films must open between January 1 and December 31 and play continuously for at least 7 days."
    That's basically it.[​IMG]
