My interpretation is that overall people see “Babel” as on the rise… Clearly the Gurus see the film as dominating “The Departed” in the Golden Globes race and if it wins tonight, it will be interesting to see if they see it taking a higher position in the overall Oscar race.


In the gurus poll, why does “Babel” trounce “The Departed” for Best Drama, but in the Oscar race for Best Picture, “Babel” is far below “The Departed”?
