    “Zero Dark Thirty” will probably get it, but “Amour” or even “Holy Motors” could be the surprise win.

    I hope that Lincoln will get it. Either SLP, ZD30, Lincoln, or Argo. The Master could even get it. Doubt it, though,

    Wouldn’t predict it but don’t count out Moonrise Kingdom.

    My favorite awards body, even more than the Oscars. Don’t always agree with their picks, but they’re almost always the most interesting and outside-the-box.

    I’m gonna say it will either be ZD30 or Moonrise Kingdom. Edging towards Moonrise.

    I think the 3 I mentioned, plus “Lincoln” and “The Master” have a better shot than “Moonrise Kingdom”. I don’t think it’s impossible that it wins, but I’ll be surprised if it does. There are simply other films critics are more passionate about.

    Based on history and the makeup of the group, the most likely winners would be ZD30, Amour, Holy Motors, The Master. Moonrise is a long shot. Lincoln would be a complete shock.
    I’d guess Phoenix and Riva for lead.

    How would Lincoln be a shock? It’s arguably the best film of the year, with arguably the best lead performance of the year.

    He meant in terms of who is voting, not the quality. Critics aren’t as passionate for this film as they are for ZD30, The Master, Amour… I do think it has some chance, but I wouldn’t call it the favorite, not here.

    Because the make up of this group skews to critics who think there were several better films than Lincoln. It is a more esoteric group. For Lincoln to win here after not at NY or LA would be mind-bending.

    The way these groups work is that unless there is a strong initial consensus candidate (as The Social Network was its year – it won some groups on majority #1 film first ballot), they go to later rounds. If it goes to a last round, sometime the win becomes a consensus choice if the top #1 choice is too controversial/divisive. The only way a respected but not loved film like Lincoln might win is if the alternative had a lot of enemies. Maybe Lincoln vs Holy Motors might give Lincoln a win, but I doubt it would vs the other leading candidates.

    I did look over the choices and reviews, and Moonrise Kingdom might have a better shot than I thought initially.

    Ok, I just looked at the metacritic aggregate of critics top 10 films of the year, and I take it back, I was wrong regarding “Moonrise Kingdom”, it might actually win.

    Here are the Metacritic top 10 according year-end lists (not the grades for the films):

    1. “Zero Dark Thrity”
    2. “The Master”
    3. “Moonrise Kingdom”
    4. “Lincoln”
    5. “Holy Motors”
    6. “Amour”
    7. “Argo”
    8. “Beasts Of The Southern Wild” 
    9. “The Silver Linings Playbook”
    10. “Django Unchained” 

    But I think “Lincoln” won’t win, the idea among critics seem to be more in the line of “extremely strong consensus and admiration” than passionate and beloved support.

    ZD30 might get shot in the face for the controversy its getting.
