Thanks to Anonymous for setting the record straight.
A sigh of relief. Apparently IFC scheduled In the Loop's, Armando Iannucci's stellar satire, OnDemand release date at a day that allowed the film the be Oscar-eligible. The film certainly deserves to be recognized, though I'm not sure a last minute campaign will pop up anywhere. It's truly a shame that the studio apparently didn't (or maybe, "couldn't"?) start a campaign for the film, given its acclaim; Peter Capaldi would have had a strong shot at a supporting actor nomination. If Capaldi and the (adapted) screenplay could score nominations, I'd be absolutely ecstatic. If it doesn't happen I won't be surprised; right now I'm just hoping the BAFTAs nominate it.
