 Who do you think is going to win each category? Expect to see much more on the Oscars at TV Rage as we draw closer to the big event. I feel like giving my analysis would be pointless, as I have only seen "Lincoln" out of these films, but intend to catch "Zero Dark Thirty," "Les Miserables," and "Django Unchained" (and am disappointed I never saw "Argo" while it was in theaters).

What do you think were the biggest snubs? It seems like "Zero Dark Thirty" was going to have some more nominations than it did, especially Kathryn Bigelow for best director. The same for Ben Affleck and his directing on "Argo." Also, no Leonardo DiCaprio for "Django Unchained"? That seemed like a lock. It seems like the academy went for more art films this year, in my opinion, and I wonder if that is going to hurt the ratings for the ceremony.
