This seems like a relatively un-stacked "Oscar season", honestly, compared to other years. I wonder if that sense might be what prompted the last-minute additions of Hitchcock and Promised Land to the race, thinking that they could make some noise in a thin field.

See, I thought last year was the most boring Oscar season I've ever followed. I think this one looks more intriguing.

Weird. I'm actually totally fine with that. He was great on SNL.

If Joaquin doesn't win best actor, I'll be shocked.

He's definitely the best male performance I've seen this year. Looking at what's coming out, I don't anyone being better either.

Think it'll be between him and Day-Lewis, but the latter fully depends on the film, I think.

I was actually just in a conversation about Lincoln. I think his performance will likely be impressive, but the trailer makes the film look completely uninteresting. Curious to see how it plays out though.

King's Speech year was equally boring, probably. But The Hurt Locker/Avatar year was infinitely more worth following.

I'm curious to see how Pitt is in Killing Them Softly. I feel like it could be another great performance from him.

It seems like a major picture contender to me.

As far as nominations, I'd say picture, director, screenplay, editing for sure. Maybe supporting actor (if the Academy really loves it) for Arkin, but I just don't think any performance was substantive enough to warrant a nomination.

Zero Dark Thirty has now gotten Best Picture awards from National Board of Review and NYFCC. Can it get LA?
