BEST DIRECTOR

Another week with no changes, since I don't yet feel strong enough about Lincoln to bump Spielberg up-- after all, he wasn't nominated alongside War Horse last year. I still thick there's a spot waiting for Tom Hooper if Les Mis performs, so it still seems worth waiting and seeing here.
