    Argo we knew obviously would win it was a lock. However if Argo completely didn’t even exisit and Ben Affleck never made it, Who would’ve won? Life of Pi, Lincoln, Playbook? I’m not sure.

    Zero Dark Thirty should have won, but i’m going with Lincoln because it’s a more obvious choice imo.

    I assumed the thread said who should win instead of would win so I voted for Silver Linings Playbook. but I think Life of Pi would have won because Ang Lee won Director and deservedly won as well.

    I actually felt that Lincoln was the Best Film of 2013. Yeah, I know I’m in the minority on this one

    The best film is clearly Zero Dark Thirty.  Embarassing that the director wasn’t nominated.  All around outstanding work—cinematography, editing, score, sound mixing, sound editing, best ensemble, supporting actor, actress, screenplay (hugely successful work, incorporating events that happened into a central narrative over 10 years culminating in a riveting final sequence that is better directed than some “action” directors’ entire careers).

    I believe Silver Linings was the BP runner up, though it only won Best Actress.  Hugely likeable film, very successful, entertaining and funny, great blend of drama and comedy, great replay value.  Is it a great film?  No, but it had more support than Life of Pi in the top categories.  Don’t let the director result fool you…Life of Pi wasn’t in it to win it for BP.

    Lincoln, I felt, was not a very focused film, showcasing a performance rather than a director’s vision.  I really enjoyed it though, flaws and all.

    I don’t see any reason to think it wouldn’t have been “Life of Pi.”

    Should have: Zero Dark Thirty or Silver Linings
    Would have: Lincoln.

    Life of Pi just doesn’t scream Best Picture.

    Should have: Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Would have: Honestly, Silver Linings Playbook.  Like it or not, there was a great deal of enthusiam surrounding it, and its fanboys were the loudest and proudest.

    I think they would grudgingly have gone for Lincoln. Yes, support for it seemed to be soft, but only because they had Argo to wipe it out. Silver Linings had loud fans, but I don’t think it quite had the heavyweight factor/artistic edge to take it all the way to the win. Lincoln would’ve won BP and adapted screenplay I think (and the latter fully deservedly).

    And pedantic point: there is no such thing as “would of”!

    Silver Linings rightfully had passionate support, and everyone liked it. 

    I think it would have surprised and beat Lincoln. TIFF voters were right when they picked SLP over Argo in September.
