YOU VOTE: Predict the Oscar Noms – Best Picture to Best Director

The final “You Vote” category is upon us as you now have the chance to vote on the Best Picture category as well as all previous five categories in this one post.

In terms of Best Picture, it is one that could either be exciting and filled with snubs and deserving picks or it could be boring and the Academy could go with the five films that seem to have found their way to the top of the pack over the past few weeks. Taking a look back at my first predictions for the category back on November 20 my take on Best Picture looked like this:

  1. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  2. Milk
  3. Revolutionary Road
  4. Slumdog Millionaire
  5. The Dark Knight

My most recent predictions look like this:

  1. Slumdog Millionaire
  2. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  3. Milk
  4. The Dark Knight
  5. Frost/Nixon

Only one film has changed as Frost/Nixon replaced Revolutionary Road, but I am still not convinced things are going to turn out as simple as they look. Although the five films I have predicted most recently are certainly the safe bet as they are the five films the majority of film pundits most agree will be at the top of the pack. Just check out Gold Derby’s latest Buzzmeter poll. But is it really this easy?

I want to save some of my views on this category for my Wednesday Oscar Prediction article and I don’t want to sway your opinion too much so let me just throw a few questions to consider at you before you place your votes:

  1. Why does Frost/Nixon deserve a Best Picture nomination?
  2. When was the last time you heard any Oscar pundit actually talk or dedicate any real time to Milk?
  3. Is The Reader making a late season run?
  4. Will the Academy be the one group to recognize Revolutionary Road?
  5. Is it possible for both The Dark Knight and WALL•E to be nominated for Best Picture?

Now those are just questions to get you thinking, nothing I particularly believe, but a few thoughts that have been running through my head as I get ready to make my final predictions tomorrow.

As for your predictions below, remember, the picks you make below are for who you THINK will be nominated and NOT who you want to be nominated. I have also included the previous Best Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress and Director polls in this post so you have one place to return to check the results and get your votes in if you haven’t done so already. The voting ends on January 22 at 2 AM, the nominees will be announced shortly thereafter right here on RopeofSilicon.com.
