Oscar Picks: November Update

Okay, NOW things are starting to get serious. With ‘Argo’ and ‘The Sessions’, two films that I overlooked, getting major awards consideration, I think I finally have to throw my hands into the air and consider them. There’s also the fact of ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’. Man, there are just so many contenders this year! I wonder how much longer it will be before we get a clearer picture of the awards season.
