Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
The word: Stephen Daldry (who has been nominated for each of the three feature-length films he has made), directs this book adaptation boasting an Oscar-caliber cast (Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks) and a weighty subject matter (the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks). Caveats: Book adaptations are often more miss than hits, and it remains to be seen how audiences respond to Sept. 11-themed films).
Other best bets: Director (Daldry), Supporting Actress (Bullock), Supporting Actor (Max von Sydow)
