This past March, OscarFrenzy revealed its five selections for 2007 Best Picture. Now that we’re in the heat of the summer, it’s time to revisit our predictions. 2006 was, for all intensive purposes, the year of the small film. Best Picture nominees such as Brokeback Mountain, Crash, and Capote came from such lesser known studios as Focus Features and Lionsgate. We believe this coming year will mark the return of the heavyweights. Universal. Paramount. Warner Brothers. You can’t keep big money down for long. So without further adieu, let’s usher in the contenders.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced two minor rules changes on Friday.
First, films no longer have to be made in the language of their home country to be nominated. So, if a movie is made in Poland, but the actors speak in Spanish, it can be nominated by Poland for best foreign language film. This change was made because last year an Italian film in Middle Eastern languages could not be nominated.
