    I think Lincoln gets Best pic and Best actor in a leading role for DDL's performance. Could be that Spielberg walks away with Best director too.

    Leading actress to Jessica Chastain? I don't know anything about Amour or Beasts of the Southern Wild, so that one's hard to say.

    Maybe Christoph Waltz pulls off best supporting actor?

    Amy Adams is my pick for best supporting actress.

    I hope Christoph Waltz wins best supporting actor, too.

    BTW, has anyone seen Silver Linings Playbook? I remember seeing the previews before a movie and thought it looked awful (just another typical romantic comedy)...and then the reviews on RT came out and everyone seems to be glowing about it and it's still sitting at 90% approval.

    We will probably watch Lincoln and/or Zero Dark Thirty this weekend (thanks screeners!)

    Beasts of the Southern Wild was fantastic. The little girl from that movie definitely deserves her nomination. The person who played her father should probably have been nominated for best supporting actor.

    Haven't seen the others although my younger brother hated Zero Dark Thirty. He described it as slow and incomprehensible. I take that to mean that the movie has a rich plot and compelling characters.

    Nah, it really wasn't anything special, even with the bad politics aside.

    I saw Zero Dark Thirty and liked it. Nothing too special about the movie though. I wasn't blown away by it.

    Buddy of mine saw it and hated it, but he's really into politics so I'm guessing that will ruin the movie for a lot of people.

    Part of it is that the movie tries to be a documentary, but at the same time butchers some facts. So what you get is, those who want facts feel angry, and those who want a good action movie feel bored.

    Of all those movies I've only seen Django and thus I think it should win in all the categories in which it's a nominee.

    Brave better win best animated picture, but I bet they'll give it to Frankenweenie based solely on their hard-on for Tim Burton.

    It's probably conservative retaliation for the left-wing attacks on Zero Dark Thirty.
