Oscar derby update: Race for best picture

September 14, 2010 |  8:38 am

Now that many Oscar contenders are being widely seen by media and industry wags, I think the race for best picture is becoming clearer. Here's my snapshot of the track as I see it now from my box seat at the Toronto International Film Festival. I won't get to see "The Social Network" until I return to New York on Thursday, but early reviews are in. And they're great, suggesting that we have an official front-runner.

I think Secretariat will be worth the cost of a ticket . . .

I love the way you summarize the Oscar Race in such a short text. :D I'm with you in your predictions, and I'm really excited for what's happening with The Social Network.

No "The Town" ?
