BEST DIRECTOR

No changes here either, though I'm feeling iffier about both Ben Stiller and Ron Howard, whose Rush has had a hard time making an impact at the North American box office (just $18 million domestic so far). Cuaron, Greengrass and McQueen, on the other hand, all look stronger than ever, and I'm getting to where I'd be shocked to see a Best Director lineup without all three of them in it.
