Oscar 2010: Good Movie Year

I am really excited. After a very bad summer, full of mindless special-effects actioners and fluffy romantic comedies, the fall movie season began strongly, with a punch.

The voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) should have no problem selecting ten films for the Oscar’s top category, Best Picture.
 
Below is my list of 15 movies to watch, some of which I have not seen yet, but on paper, they seems strong Oscar contenders.
