Will a Horse going to War bring Spielberg back to the Oscars?

Steven Speilberg and war movies mean serious Oscar business. He won Best Director for both Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan, both films dealing with the atrocities of war. Now, he could be headed back for another go round at the Academy Awards with his latest the eagerly anticipated film War Horse based on the popular novel about a horse that is sold into the British army during World War I and his adventures trying to re-unite with his young former owner. Looking at the trailer, I’m already putting this at the top of the Oscar nom list for 2011 (that was after I dried my eyes~ it’s a tear-jerker!). In fact, I’m making bold predictions right now that it will contend for Picture, Director, Cinematography, Score, Adapted Screenplay and more…. And the source material has already been the basis for the recent Tony winning smash play of the same name currently wowing audiences on Broadway. It looks like all signs could be aligned for another sweep at the Kodak theatre. Check out the trailer below and see if you think it could go the distance and for more on the film starring newcomer Jeremy Irvine, David Thewlis (the Harry Potter films), Tom Hiddleston (Thor) and two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson (Hilary & Jackie) head here.
