Oscar Watch – Best Picture

The Artist - Best Picture - 2012

The Artist – Best Picture – 2012

The (too many) nominees for best Picture are –

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

So far the winner in this category at the other awards are –

  • Argo – Golden Globes (Drama)
  • Les Miserables – Golden Globes (Comedy/Musical)
  • Zero Dark Thirty – Chicago Film Critics
  • Zero Dark Thirty – New York Film Critics
  • Searching For Sugarman – BAFTA

Sometimes we want to overthink and give the award for this category for the wrong reasons and this year could be a prime example.  From the over-blown hype surrounding Zero Dark Thirty to the love affair with Amour.  From the deisre to rectify a wrong (Argo director) to the desire to reward the weird (but good) Beasts.  At the end of the day, it is Best Picture and like Lead Actor this should be alot simpler than folks are making it out to be.  Check Lincoln for me.
