Pick this year's best picture nominees. Make ten choices, since that just makes the whole process easier.

I think we're going all the way to ten this year.

Argo
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Django Unchained
Les Miserables
Life of Pi
Lincoln
Moonrise Kingdom
Silver Linings Playbook
Skyfall
Zero Dark Thirty

Alternates: Amour, The Master, The Impossible
I fucking hope so. That list would absolutely make the AMC marathon worth it.

I agree that the Academy has grossly overlooked some of the greatest films of all time in favor of "more accessible" ones... but I think the Academy has also acknowledged some great films that I personally would have probably missed otherwise... especially in categories like Documentary and Foreign Film
Could you give some examples? I can't think of two categories they more consistently fuck up.

If you admit they are lousy at this sort of thing, why do you choose to follow them?
Because they still entertain me. Plus, every once in a while they bring moments of transcendence ("Falling Slowly" winning Original Song, Cotillard winning Best Actress, etc.).
