Possible nominations: Best picture, best actress (Sandra Bullock), best director (Alfonso Cuarón), best supporting actor (George Clooney)
Bullock and Clooney, 372 miles above earth with a damaged shuttle, quickly running out of air. Talk about gripping. "Gravity" is projected to be a major player in at least two categories, best picture and best actress. Don't overlook Clooney (if that's possible) for supporting actor or Cuarón for director. Too many Oscar faves to ignore.
