    12 Years a Slave --should win, will win
    The Wolf of Wall Street

    The only one of these movies that I've seen is American Hustle. It's great but it would look bad to give such a happy-go-lucky movie the Oscar when you also have 12 Years A Slave in the running (I haven't gotten around to seeing it yet...waiting til I'm in a mood for misery).

    I need to see more movies before voting in the other categories

    oh, and I also saw Her, but I don't think it stands a chance.

    'Tis easy to believe well of a movie thou hast not yet seen.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    "Let It Go" (Frozen)

    "Let it Go" from Frozen. For sure. No doubt.


    Best Animated Feature
    The Croods (Chris Sanders, Kirk DeMicco, Kristine Belson)
    Despicable Me 2 (Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Chris Meledandri)
    Ernest & Celestine (Benjamin Renner, Didier Brunner)

    The Wind Rises (Hayao Miyazaki, Toshio Suzuki)


    I'm gonna have to go with "Frozen" on this one, too. It was pretty remarkable actually.

    wise words. But it has a 96% fresh rating, so I think it's a safe bet.

    Has anyone seen it?

    Safe bet for an Oscar win--but a movie about slavery is Oscar bait anyway. I'm amazed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter didn't get an Oscar.

    I remember it getting some reviews either here or at Central.

    I haven't seen enough of these movies to really comment on them--but I have seen Gravity and I'm not surprised at it's nominations.

    If Tarantino was connected to it in any way, it probably would have at least been nominated. His name would automatically convince people that the movie is "witty and boundary-pushing" instead of "tacky and dumb."

    @chobani: Word. I mean, if Tarantino had a bad guy throw a fucking horse at Lincoln, there would have been deeply pretentious discussion over the symbolism and how it relates to Ahab and the Great White Cetacean qua Lincoln and slavery. But he wasn't attached, so, no dice.
