Click to Read The Full List & My Analysis & Predicted Winners



BEST PICTURE, DRAMA
Zero Dark Thirty
Argo
Lincoln
Life of Pi
Django Unchained

No surprises in the Best Picture Category.2012 was a solid year for amazing movies,and these 5 were one of them.
Snubs-Plenty.Choosing 5 itself is a hard task.Flight,Beasts of the Southern Wild,Skyfall,Avengers,TDKR,Master,Hobbit,Cloud Atlas missed the cut.

Predicted Winner-Lincoln.
It depends on how the buzz goes during the award week.But based on the love Lincoln is getting ,it just might sweep the show.But lets not forget that many have gone empty handed even when they got large number of nominations (True Grit got 10 noms ,but failed to win a single one in the Oscar 2011).The closest competition is Zero Dark Thirty which is getting a very strong buzz similar to that of The Hurt Locker.


BEST PICTURE, COMEDY/MUSICAL
Silver Linings Playbook
Les Miserables
Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Moonrise Kingdom
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Snubs-This is 40 should have easily made it through here,but it was snubbed.Ted,one of the years biggest comedy hit too wasnt nominated.Instead we have a surprise selection -Salmon Fishing (which is neither a comedy nor a musical).

It has a strong musical score,engaging drama,excellent cast performances,Les Miserables is a guaranteed winner.Closest competition will be from Silver Lining.
