    Would a lineup of the 9 nominees, only replacing The Tree of Life with Tailor Tailor Solider Spy and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo would have made a better and more sensible Oscar lineup than the one we got in 2012? If the studios and producers pushed harder, could they have gotten these films in there?

    The girl with the dragon tattoo and tinker tailor solider spy.
    TGWTDT was rather close (DGA ,PGA)and TTSS would have followed Bridesmaids(PGA ,SAG)

    The Palme D’Or winner was not the problem with the lineup.

    The Academy could have let go of The Descendants, War Horse and Of course ELIC.

    EL&IC could’ve (and should’ve) been left off, and ‘War Horse’ was beautiful but overly sentimental and middle-of-the-road Spielberg. 

    I think ‘TGWTDT’ and ‘TTSS’ would’ve both been much worthier nominees (as would ‘Margin Call’ and ‘Contagion’, IMHO).

    TGWTDT and TTTS would’ve been worthy nominees. Even some films that were hardly contenders for BP like Shame, Attack The Block, Weekend, Melancholia, Harry Potter, and 50/50 were better than a good chunk of the actual lineup. But if I were to include Dragon Tattoo and Tinker Tailor and had to keep 9 nominees, I’d say give me those two and I’ll give you Extremely Loud and The Help.
