Saw it coming...

Daniel Radosh

"Among movie obsessives, this week brings with it a cherished holiday tradition: The New York Times' proclamation that the forthcoming Oscar race is an anomaly, in that it is too close to call." — Tim Carvell, in Slate, Jan. 2002.

"Those who practice pre-Oscar shamanism, studying the awards strewn across the landscape like the entrails of slaughtered sheep, have noted that no obvious frontrunner for best picture has emerged, nor even a plausible two-way race. Where is this year's "Beautiful Mind," its "American Beauty" or its Shakespeare versus Private Ryan showdown?" — A.O. Scott in The New York Times, Feb. 9, 2003.
