Best Picture Prediction: The Descendants
The Descendants- This is the safest bet for the Academy, which is weird because it is actually good.
The Artist- This should win, but I’m afraid the backlash of a silent movie winning in 2012 will scare the hell out of voters.
Hugo- The frontrunner in theory since it has the most nominations, but that will matter because the voters hate Martin Scorsese.
Midnight in Paris- It would be a surprise if this won, but a pleasant one. But seriously, these four films are so good that I do not care which one wins.
The Help- Not even southern-white guilt can save this movie.
The Tree of Life- No.
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close- No!
War Horse- @#$% that horse!
Moneyball- As good as it was, even Brad Pitt forgot about Moneyball.
