I know, I know, it’s much too early to be thinking about the Academy Awards, and Oscar talk is considered a bit gauche up here, but the Telluride Film Festival has had the distinction, for three years running, of providing the first North American screens for the eventual best picture winners. If your head for recent Oscar trivia is as bad as mine, I’ll share the fruits of my Googling and remind us all that those movies were The King’s Speech, The Artist and Argo. So maybe the road to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood will once again run downhill from this scruffy-chic former mining town in the San Juan Mountains.
