So this is the first push to get the film to win an Acadamy. Im sure it will win a few more awards and a few fan sites will push for it. It will at least be nominated.

Oh it'll definitley be nominated. I don't think fan sites have much to do with that though honestly. It's good to see it getting well deserved recognition though.

I just hope they don't take it too far and get too proud of themselves and make a sequel... that never turns out well

I think Fan sites usuelly start a push to get fans motivated and spreading the word. This gets loud enough to show the movie should win.

@ Kiri
WB already said while they would like to make a second, thats not going to happen. At least not anytime soon.

No way a Sequel is going to happen, but we've already gone way into that.

Still general interest isn't what gets the Oscar Committee's attention. They don't look at stuff like that. The sutdios send them samples that they want to be considered, and what they are to be considered for. Then a panel looks at everything and decides what to nominate from there. Then it goes to the main judges after that. Fan support has almost nothing to do with it. If that's what it was it'd be a people's choice thing, and movies like Slumdog Millionaire wouldn't even be noticed.
