BEST DIRECTOR

The inclusion of Quentin Tarantino instead of Tom Hooper in the Best Director lineup at the Globes was a genuine surprise, and suddenly Hooper and Les Mis seem a lot weaker than I would have figured-- but that's probably taking the Globes a bit too seriously. Right now both Les Mis and Django are waiting for audience acceptance to tip the scales in their favor, and how that happens could really determine how Oscar voters finally decide who to choose when filling out their ballots after Christmas.
