My predictions: 2/3, picking “Lincoln” over “Hitchcock”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Hitchcock, The Hobbit, Les Miserables
And here we have it – the only race where “Lincoln” was a sure thing and then didn’t make the cut. Instead, we get the only nomination for the otherwise ignored “Hitchcock,” which had Anthony Hopkins looking plump and buttoned-up as Alfred Hitchock, the impressive creature work in “The Hobbit,” and the many ensemble characters of “Les Miserables.” I think it’s a pretty solid list.
My current bet to win: I’ll go with Les Miserables over “The Hobbit.”
