Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire November 16, 2007 at 4:50AM

Looking at happenings on the Awards Watch front... Among this week's news, Steven Spielberg was announced as the recipient of the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award, while the Spirit Awards announced plans to go green. On the blog front, Tim Burton showed 17 minutes of the still unfinished "Sweeney Todd", allowing attendee Tom O'Neill to proclaim it the Oscar frontrunner. O'Neill's fellow Los Angeles Times' blogger Pete Hammond discussed the state of the indie and Oscar, while Sasha Stone of AwardsDaily considered the dipping chances of "There Will Be Blood." Newsweek's Oscar blog suggested "No Country For Old Men" and "Atonement" were best picture nod shoo-ins, while the latest Gurus o' Gold agreed, adding personal favorites from the 15 pundits (including our own Eugene Hernandez), which ranged from "Zodiac" for best picture to David Cross for best supporting actor in "I'm Not There." Here at indieWIRE, check out my latest choices for award frontrunners and underdogs at The Lost Boy, and look out for our upcoming coverage of the Gotham Awards, which will be screening nominees at MoMA November 16 - 19, and announcing their winners November 27.
