With Dreamgirls out of the running, which of the five nominated Best Picture films is the front-runner at this stage? Opinions, please. I suspect that Little Miss Sunshine is going to get dissed the most between now and ballot-closing day, even though the odds of winning don’t seem all that great because Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris weren’t jointly nominated for Best Director. LMS could win , of course. As a a big-name producer told me after last weekend’s PGA win, “Sunshine is the only [likely] Best Picture nominee without negatives — it’s a very good film and everybody likes it.”
