7. First Cow
8. I'm Thinking of Ending Things
9. The White Tiger
11. The Personal History of David Copperfield
The top four here seem tremendously solid - they're all looking likely for Best Picture nods, and the competition isn't great enough to dethrone their momentum. That pesky fifth slot is the big question - will they go for a subtle western (either News or Cow), a frothy period romp (either Copperfield or Emma), a unique specimen of doc/mock storytelling that is Borat, or just toss Charlie Kaufman yet another Oscar nod (he adapted Ending Things). So hard to say, but after Borat's WGA nod, I think it slides in?????
