    I love when you all do this. Would like to see the same grid if you would have only selected 10 each though. I would be curious if Moonrise Kingdom would slide down a bit or stay up there with the Argo’s and Lincoln’s of the race.

    How is the Hobbit not a lock by now?

    ALL THREE LORD OF THE RINGS FILMS WERE NOMINATED.

    and that was back when there were only 5 NOMineees!

    Great list though.

    ARGO is the one movie I am excited about. It looks like a movie that will make me appreciate and love movies once again! And according to a unanimous praises, it is well acted and directed!
