The 2013 Best Picture Nominees

The 85th Academy Awards will be held Sunday night in Hollywood to celebrate achievements in film over the previous year. Here’s a look at the Best Picture nominees:

  • Lincoln: Daniel Day-Lewis and Andy Serkis are virtual Academy Awards locks for their respective portrayals of Abraham Lincoln and his CGI stovepipe hat
  • Argo: Oscar voters may not support this film, as every scene starring actor/director Ben Affleck is shaky and out of focus because there was nobody behind the camera to direct it
  • The Trailer for Flight: This gripping two-and-a-half-minute thrill ride, which features a moving dramatic arc and a phenomenal ensemble performance, previews the non-Oscar-nominated feature film Flight
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild: Russell Brand and George Lopez provide the voices of two hilarious beasts who find themselves a long, long way from home: New York City!
  • Paper Bag: A child in a slightly neglectful home finds a magic world inside a paper bag in a story slow enough to seem important
  • Les Misérables: Hugh Jackman delivers a star turn as Lester Misérables, the fanciest barber in Paris
  • Silver Linings Playbook: Didn’t see it
  • Life of Pi: Remake of the 1950s Mickey Rooney comedy-musical Tiger Boat
  • Django Unchained: Quentin Tarantino’s latest action flick drew controversy for using the words “nigger” and “boner” over 100 times each
