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:

  • 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
