I think this is a fairly easy call. Slumdog wins drama, Wall-E wins comedy, or maybe In Bruges. It would be nice to see something else win here but I don’t think it’s possible. My personal choice would be The Dark Knight for this one but that’s probably not going to happen. The Eddie is the second most important guild award after the DGA. It usually tips towards Best Pic, especially in a sweeps year, which is what we’re in. I’m thinking Slumdog for the lock.
Charts after the cut.
