With the Golden Globe nominations on tap for Tuesday morning, you’ll want to go ahead and bookmark Dave Karger’s OscarWatch blog now. In addition to video interviews with folks like Colin Firth (A Single Man), Viggo Mortensen (The Road), and Jason Reitman (director of Up in the Air), you’ll get his ongoing coverage of awards season, which, so far, has been quite kind to The Hurt Locker. Over the weekend, it took Best Picture from the Los Angeles and Boston critics, and was named one of AFI’s Top 10 films of the year. (The New York Film Critics Online went with James Cameron’s Avatar, but still recognized The Hurt Locker‘s Kathryn Bigelow as Best Director).

Is The Hurt Locker your current pick for Best Picture?
