The Award Season begins and thus flame the guestimates for the big-prize, Oscars'12

With the Academy already flipping some rocks (pre-nominated lists for Best Animated Feature, Best Documentary, Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short have been made public), major independent Award Season festivals and the associations of critics are fueling up their rumble. As for every year, the decisions by these entities work as a blurry preview of what might happen at the Kodak Theater and stir the boiling oil in the pan for the prophets (I will myself try it).

It begun with the Gotham Awards and the New York Film Critics Awards, which foresee much of which has already been established as plausible or probable all over the Internet.
