LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The crime thrillers "The Lookout," "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," "Eastern Promises," "No Country for Old Men" and "3:10 to Yuma" will vie for best motion picture drama honors with the Alzheimer's saga "Away From Her" at the International Press Academy's 12th annual Satellite Awards, organizers said.

Because the Los Angeles-based critics group -- a breakaway from the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. -- had a voting deadline of November 20, a number of prominent films, which have just begun screening for the media this week, did not figure in its choices. For best comedy or musical, the group nominated "Hairspray," "Juno," "Shoot 'Em Up," "Lars and the Real Girl," "Knocked Up" and "Margot at the Wedding."

In all, the IPA offered nominations in 34 film and TV categories, six DVD categories and four game categories.

Winners will be announced December 16 during a ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City.
