Here, a primer on 10 Best Picture hopefuls: (In no particular order)

1. Zero Dark Thirty
2. Les Miserables
3. Lincoln (OMG I WANNA SEE THIS SO BAD...I have no babysitter:(...)
4. 4. Silver Linings Playbook
6. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
7. The Master
8. Django Unchained  (ANOTHER ONE....)
9. Beasts of the Southern Wild
10. Life of Pi

Thank you for this post! I need some diversion.

I haven't been to the movies forever. I usually go on Christmas day. I want to see Argo and Lincoln. You see, we even have the same taste!
I read The Hobbit and the Trilogy, awesome books, another one to see...

Oh Ri, you don't even know..Ever since my mom left Jason and I have had no date nights..She came to help me out with Jalah (my daughter) for 3 months so that was AWESOME!...Anyway, I'll send you a ticket for sure! I really do want to see Lincoln though. I love going to the movies... Lincoln is one of my Favorite Presidents...

Im not a huge theater buff but would love to see Lincoln on the big screen. I heard it was wonderful. My da said Pi is supposed to be real good too, she read the book. Im stingy that way, I figure for what I pay just to watch television I will wait until they come to tv for the most part.

Ha ha mrsp. We have similar problems in life.  I want to see that movie big time as well.  I must admit that the Hobbit is on my list too.  I loved The Lord of the Rings movies.  

In my younger days, I would make sure to see all the movies and my girlfriends and I had a party on oscar night dressing up like we were in Hollywood (well, the mid west, on a working girls budget version of that) and drink champagne.  Ah, memories!

I am wanting to see Django Unchained and Lincoln.  

Quentin Tarantino's movies are AMAZING.

I saw Argo today with my daughter. Terribly suspenseful.
Very good movie, worth seeing in my opinion.
