Will there be an upset at the Oscars?


If there is any sense in the Oscar presentations, the Best Actress should go to Judi Dench. I have seen all the contestants and Helen Mirren did a good job in “The Queen,” but it comes nowhere near “Notes on a Scandal” with Judi. -Variety subscriber


I hope so. Let’s make it interesting. This awards season has been packed with surprises so why stop now? -Variety subscriber


“Little Miss Sunshine” will win Best Picture, thus causing an upset. -Variety subscriber


Probably not, but wouldn’t it be nice if Peter O’Toole and Alan Arkin won? -Variety subscriber
