NEWSFLASH! I just checked the excellent Oscar site www.incontention.com
and Chris Tapley, whose site it is, has now ALSO switched his prediction to TOM HOOPER of “The King’s Speech” to win Best Director tomorrow night at the DGA!
That is not, of course, the pre-ordained choice of LAST week, which would, of course, be David Fincher. Of “The Joy of Typing.”
This after Sasha Stone was going that way, too. On www.awardsdaily.com
And who am I to disagree? Tom Hooper! FTW!
Chris points out that the DGA ballots were just due in today, or was it yesterday? So they had the advantage (inspiration?) of knowing how the PGA went down on Sunday and the 12 Oscar nominations for the “King’s Speech” on Tuesday.
And I’m still seeing snow flurries!
