Oscar Eye: Lincoln Holds Strong, Jennifer Lawrence Moves Up, And More Developments
Still a super competitive crowd, still no clear sense of who the frontrunner might be-- this seems to be one of those years where whoever has the biggest movie will sneak up to the top, with few sentimental factors (i.e. Roman Polanski's win for The Pianist) at play.
