Think that's the last dagger into Chastain. Between Riva and Lawrence now.

Nate Silver's predictions:

Quote:
Best Picture: Argo. “Lincoln, once considered the front-runner, has been nominated for almost every best picture award but won none of them. Counting on a comeback would be a bit like expecting Rudolph W. Giuliani to have resurrected his campaign in Florida in 2008 after finishing in sixth place everywhere else.”

Best Director: Steven Spielberg. “The next most-common winner of best director awards, after [Ben] Affleck, has been Kathryn Bigelow, for Zero Dark Thirty. But Ms. Bigelow was snubbed by the Academy as well.”

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln. “Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) did win the Satellite Award and the National Board of Review’s award for best actor, but neither has a strong track record, whereas Mr. Day-Lewis has swept the awards that predict Oscar success well.”

Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook. “The 85-year-old Emmanuelle Riva (Amour), meanwhile, won the Bafta in an upset and is now attracting a lot of buzz as a potential Oscar surprise. But one rule-of-thumb in elections analysis is that ‘momentum’ is often given too much credence by pundits.”

Best Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln. “This is almost certainly the most competitive category: all five nominees have won Oscars before, and there is no consensus choice.”

Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables. “Anne Hathaway as about as safe a bet to win for Les Misérables as Mitt Romney was to win Utah.”

Re: the huge paragraph conversation above -- I go to a film school and I'm pretty much constantly surrounded by a highly cinema-focused group of people and I've still seen mixed feelings about the movie. I personally loved it and a lot of people did, but its an intentionally challenging movie, and trying to pass it off like its the easy or obvious "consensus" choice is just silly. Everyone knew going into the award season, including all the critics that enjoyed it, that it was waaaay too polarizing to even have a shot at taking home Best Picture. I would of loved to see it snag a nomination, but. Come on.

I don't know what you linked to, but it's certainly not a picture of those two people.

Didn't expect Christoph to win. That's great.
