This is, of course, all speculation, since it doesn't make much sense to pit movies one hasn't seen and that haven't had a chance to reveal themselves to the full audience against proven blockbusters and audience favorites such as Christopher Nolan's latest.
Likewise these Oscar predictions are just as debatable as they are ultimately meaningless. But in my opinion, and with having seen nothing more than the trailer, any buzz for "Benjamin Button" is already fully deserved by its incredible visual effects achievements, and can only help to reel in more viewers ... and hopefully garner David Fincher his first very much overdue Oscar!
