    The Avengers should win for Best Visual Effects, but Life of Pi will take it because it's got major nominations.

    I don't think Argo will take Best Picture because it didn't get nominated for Best Director.

    And why did Thomas Newman get nominated for his score in Skyfall? The score for that film was every bit as generic as anything by Hans Zimmer.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    I really want Lincoln to get shat on. Fuck that film, seriously. Pretentious, boring twaddle. I'd rather see Les Mis win best picture, because then at least we'll all know the whole thing's a joke.

    I'm kind of in agreement.

    Marketing and movie promotion, release time, topical matter, and the like all has more bearing on the outcome than the movie itself, it seems.

    And any votes I'd make here would simply reflect what I thought would win, not necessarily which I thought was better.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    It's amazing how much opinion can differ among reasonable people. Lincoln wasn't my favorite film of the year, but I was riveted and I would find it an entirely deserving Best Picture winner.

    The filmmakers of Beasts of the Southern Wild looked about as poor as the film's characters. They didn't look like they could afford an HD camera or even a tripod.

    And it is very ironic that the actors in The Avengers didn't present the award for Best Visual Effects to the film they starred in.
