Announcement: The Second Flush of Nominations

As - doubtless - many of you out in film-land already well know, this week has been a particularly full week for to be following the "Awards' Season" as it makes the preliminary pushes to roll out its many "Year's Best." In advance of the first flush, which carried out the nominations of Film Independent and the Annie Awards (in addition to the Grammys), this new second flush of nominations brings in the nominations from "heavier hitters" (i. e., the Broadcast Film Critics Association [BFCA]; the Hollywood Foreign Press Association [HFPA], presenter of the Golden Globe Awards; and - just this morning- the Screen Actors Guild [SAG]) in addition to the new Criterion, March 2010 releases yesterday and Avatar's theatrical release tomorrow. Yes, this set is a lot, and this lot I give to you (below):

P. S. Don't we think that the SAG nominees in the Best Leading Actor category are the to-be Oscar nominees as well?
