    I don’t think there will be much of a surprise. Affleck, Spielberg, Bigelow, Lee, Russell will probably be chosen. Alt. Hooper, Haneke, Tarantino or Anderson for “The Master” could push Russell or Lee off the list but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    The Impossible is a “spanish” production that grossed more than $50mil in Spain alone: #1 movie of the year (2x Twilight), #2 all-time BO behind Avatar.
    So that might explain why it’s doing so well at the Goyas.
