Warner Bros' Awards site has added Where the Wild Things Are and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to its contenders. Young Max Records, the twelve-year-old star, is being pushed for Lead Actor, which is a relief -- Ivana Baquero, the lead of 2006's excellent Pan's Labyrinth, was given a supporting campaign, as was Keisha Castle-Hughes for Whale Rider (the Oscar voters smartened up).
Meanwhile, Miramax Films has its little group set up as well. No "For Your Consideration" sections yet, just screening dates, but it looks like they're pushing the possible De Niro comeback Everybody's Fine, the Clive Owen drama The Boys Are Back, and the Michelle Pfeiffer vehicle Cheri.
Universal's awards site has full FYC listings for Bruno (Heavens, no!) and Funny People. The latter's screenplay is available, as is the script for Michael Mann's beautiful Public Enemies. It's Complicated, which won't hit theaters until Christmas, is also up there, but alas -- not even cast pics are up!
How long until the other studios jump on the bandwagon?
