Zodiac on an Oscar push?

Zodiac, my second favorite film of the year, is finally attracting the Oscar attention that it deserves. Unfortunately, it's starting up at the last possible moment. But better late than never. Particularly for James Vanderbilt's wonderful script, which got a nomination for a Scripter Award last week. I'm very happy to see this. Vanderbilt's script smoothly incorporates tons of potentially dry investigatory facts whilec cultivating its narrative, artistic and comedic sensibilities. Which is my way of saying, "Good job."
