Academy Awards 2012 (Best Picture) Predictions

Updated - December 10th

Last year i got 10 out of 10 movies correct in the Best Picture category. i am going to post updated predictions until the nominees are announced so this is just one of the lists.

this list is not just based on the movies that i have seen only but also on the initial reviews and festival buzz. i am worried about the new rules in Best Picture category which will now have anywhere between 5 to 10 nominees.

Also visit my list on IMDB !

Color Scheme:

- Green: Strong Contenders according to me.
- Blue: Good Chance for Nomination.
- Orange: Somewhere in the middle right now.
- Red: Maybe a Surprise entry.

Best Picture
1. The Descendants

2. The Artist

3. Moneyball

(Moneyball may be loosing a but momentum here but i still think it is a strong movie and would be one of the top choices whereas The Artist and The Descendants are two perfect locks for Oscars.)

4. War Horse

Midnight In Paris

6. Hugo

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

8. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

(Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close's screenings for Critics should be planned right now as to get the response and as to determine whether or not it is actually a contender but i does see a lot of potential in the movie and would sure be a nominee. War Horse looks epic for the obvious reasons. Not sure how will The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo play with academy members. I am adding Hugo here which i didn't before as it is emerging as a major Oscar contender now that it is been nominated and winning everywhere.)

9. The Tree Of Life

10. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows 2

11. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

12. The Help

13. We Need To Talk About Kevin

(I don't think people should be ignoring The Tree Of Life as it does have a lot of potential. The Help if gets a nomination, i would call it very unnecessary of Academy as i don't think it is great but the predictions by almost every experts is something scary as they think it will eventually. Harry Potter is something i am not sure but i personally want it to get a nod.)

14. Martha Marcy May Marlene

15. Melancholia

16. 50/50

17. Shame

18. The Iron Lady
