Oscars 2013 – Best Picture


Amour film still

And now the biggie.  Here are the nominees for Best Picture…

  • Amour
  • Argo
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Django Unchained
  • Les Miserables
  • Life of Pi
  • Lincoln
  • Silver Linings Playbook
  • Zero Dark Thirty

Who Should Win: Life of Pi is the most ambitious film and I think the one that will be looked back upon the most out of the crop.  Not really an actor’s film though, which does it no favors voting wise.

Who I Want to Win:  Hm. I thought it was a strong year overall.  I don’t really have a strong rooting interest this year for one film over another.  I don’t think Zero is going to win, so let’s put them here.

Who Will Win: Argo.  I’m predicting a good night for Ben and my guy Clooney.

Some other quick predictions:

Best Adapted Screenplay: Life of Pi.  Though again, it might be a long shot in a strong year for adaptations.

Best Original Screenplay: Django Unchained. Give the devil his due, it was an amazing read on the page.

Best Direction: Lincoln. Never bet against Spielberg. Just don’t do it.

Will Seth MacFarlane be a good host?  He’s a genuine song and dance man, I think he can win over the people in the audience who don’t know him (and probably lose them with a dirty joke).  So it will be like a good episode of Family Guy basically.

Enjoy the show!
