My predictions: 4/5, picking “Argo” over “The Hobbit”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Anna Karenina, The Hobbit, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln
It’s fair to say that all of these films looked superb. I’m excited about “Anna Karenina,” which was creatively decorated, and I don’t mind “The Hobbit” showing up here even though I really minded the film. “Les Miserables” and “Life of Pi” were obviously gorgeous, and “Lincoln” was quite a production as well. It might have been nice to see “Beasts of the Southern Wild” or “Argo” here, but I knew that was a stretch. I’m very pleased with this category.
My current bet to win: It seems an appropriate place to reward Les Miserables, though it could just as easily be any of the others.
