The 85th Academy Awards will be presented on February 24, 2013 and this year we have an impressive list of thought-provoking Best Picture nominations.
That list includes Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty.
As the Ottawa Citizen said, it is an "Oscar List Worth Talking About." I agree.
Five of these movies have proved not just discussion-worthy but also, unlike the case with last year's nominations, have done well at the box office. A successful run at the box office is important for the future of movie making.
So what do you think of this year's nominations?
at the movies!
