iW THIS WEEK | Awards Watch Re-Cap: "No Country"; European Film Awards; WGA Strike and Oscar

Looking at happenings on the Awards Watch front… Among this week’s news, the European Film Award nominations were announced, with “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days,” among the films leading the pack; Movie City News’ Gurus o’ Gold (including our own Eugene Hernandez) had their third offering of Oscar prediction charts, with “Atonement” edging “No Country for Old Men” for the big prize. Tom O’Neill and Jeff Wells discussed the accuracy issues in bonafide Oscar contender (and box-office champion) “American Gangster,” Entertainment Weekly spoke withJuno” writer and Oscar’s likely first former-stripper screenwriting nominee, Diablo Cody, while Nikki Finke asked how the WGA strike will affect the Oscars. And here at indieWIRE, we introduced this season’s Awards Watch coverage with an article highlighted by discussion of “No Country For Old Men” and supplemented by a first round of predictions on both myself and Eugene‘s blogs.
