Oscar 2012: Best Picture Predictions

On January 10, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will announce the Oscar nominations.

If my reading of the film context (and country’s mood) is valid, 10 of these 14 films will be nominated for Oscar Gold.

To get a Best Picture nomination, at least 5 percent of the Academy’s voting members need to place the film as their first choice.

I enlist them in alphabetical order:

Beasts of the Southern Wild
Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Dark Knight Rises
Django Unchained
The Master
Les Miserables
Life of Pi
Moonrise kingdom
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty
