Intermission: Go Talk in the Lobby
For work reasons, it'll be two or three days before I can post my thoughts on Best Ensemble, the next category due to arrive in the ongoing Best of 2007 feature. But speaking of ensembles, and while you're waiting to hear about those dazzling groups, why not head to the cocktail bar during intermission, where lots of people are talking Oscar? In fact, wait a minute: I recognize some of these people, and probably so do you! It's Day One of Nathaniel's Oscar symposium! I even see myself, plus a lot of people who share few of my reservations about There Will Be Blood, tremendous though it is, and also a lot of people (save for Sasha Stone) who like Juno a lot less than I still do, after two viewings.
