No Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty?!? I'm guessing that sinks it for Best Picture win.

While I don't know about Cloud Atlas for BP, I'm surprised no nods in any of the major technical categories.

Best Director is wide open now, right? No Affleck, Bigelow, or Hooper. I mean, one of those 3 is who everyone thought was going to win and NONE got nominated. Great to see Haneke in there, though.

^I think Spielberg's got this in the bag. And Best Pic as well. Really the box office of Lincoln has been one of the most surprising industry stories of the year(its got a shot at 200 mill! War Horse made 80. Amistad & Munich couldn't get to 50. It may be the most surprising box office of any Spielberg film. They only released it initially in NY/LA because they didn't think it had 'mainstream' appeal)

But I wouldn't be surprised to see Bigelow win the DGA. In '95 Ron Howard got the DGA, but didn't get a best director nom. They went for Mel Gibson at the Oscars(the 'safe' choice)

Yeah Lincoln all the way, like Braveheart in '95(that was considered a wide open year as well)

Yeah, upon thinking a little more about it, you're right. I was just so shocked that those 3 were left out. I think Lincoln's going to have a huge night. Picture, Director, and Actor and and slew of technical awards.

^I do think Beasts is the only title that has a shot of upsetting Lincoln(Babe was sort of in that position in '95, the little movie that could)

Post Re: What Are Your Oscar Nomination Predictions?
the Globes & PGA wins for Argo have made this a rather interesting race. Director may indeed be up for grabs(we'll see what DGA does)

Quote:
Ben Affleck's "Argo" has sealed its comeback from Oscar-nomination disappointment to become the clear frontrunner in the Best Picture race, winning the top feature-film award from the Producers Guild of America on Saturday night.

In the last decade, the PGA winner has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Picture seven times, including the last five in a row. (It's 16-for-23 overall.) Crucially, the guild is the one body that goes along with the Academy and counts its final ballots using the preferential system, in which a film must be a broad consensus choice to win.

PGA wins for "The Hurt Locker" over "Avatar" and "The King's Speech" over "The Social Network" were the first clear signs that those films were likely to become Oscar winners as well.
