2013 Oscar Nominees: Best Picture

sam

Like all who care about the state of cinema, I have my frustrations and reservations about the Academy Awards, from the politics involved to the ridiculous voting system. And, well, the best picture of the year didn’t even get nominated for Best Picture this year (don’t get me started on that snub).

Nevertheless, I still watch the awards and, no matter how hard I try not to, care about the outcome for reasons my friend, Andrew Welch, captures well in his recent article on the Oscars.

So, yeah, with that said, I’m sharing my reviews of some of the films up for Best Picture. While Ben Affleck will probably take home the victory, Steven Spielberg deserves it, and if not him, Kathryn Bigelow.

Anyway, here are the nominees with links:

Amour
Argo
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Django Unchained
Les Miserables
Life of Pi
Lincoln
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty

P.S. I’ll be live tweeting the event tonight for Paste.
