“The diverse field of nominees is chock full of talent, and the odds on favorite to take home the Oscar statues is wide open,” said HollyWagers Entertainment Content Manager Kari O’Connor. “Hollywood had a year of incredible big and low budget movie successes. Scorsese’s back in the ring for Best Director, while Dreamgirls is surprisingly shut out of the Best Picture category, despite having the most nominations than any other movie this year.”
