    Life of Pi
    Lincoln
    Moonrise Kingdom
    Silver Linings Playbook

    Skyfall will probably get a special award like Harry Potter did last year.

    Interesting lack of The Master, and The Dark Knight Rises taking the populist spot from The Avengers, This is 40, and Ted.

    And surprised Django made it in despite Basterds missing out a few years ago, and Les Mis making it as an “American Production”

    Doesn’t surprise me. The Master will squeak in the Oscars line-up with the very last slot. If J. Edgar got in last year, I’m not surprised by this list at all.

    So…do they consider Cloud Atlas a German production??  This almost makes me want to “unregister” with them. Still, some great choices up there, which I am hesitant to believe they will survive with Oscar.

    Well, Tom Tykwer is a german director and the film is the most expensive “german” movie. At least the german newspaper claim that.

    I’ll be the first to say that I think this at least slightly boosts The Dark Knight Rises Best Picture odds. I still wouldn’t say that it is likely of a nomination, but I am going to put it in my tenth position, as an outside chance.

    TDKR, as it should be, in the top 10.  Sub out Django and Pi and put Hunger Games and Avengers in their place and it would be pitch-perfect.

    Yay for The Dark Knight Rises inclusion! Skyfall should be replaced with….something else.

    PaulHan, have you seen Skyfall? That’s a movie you could pimp and perhaps see make the Best Picture lineup.
