And the nominees are… – Roger Ebert’s Journal

With the 2013 Oscarcast moved up to Feb. 24, movie fans are already in a lather over the possible nominees, especially since again this year there can be “up to” ten finalists in the Best Picture category. I claim no inside knowledge (I’m still waiting to hear from my friend Deep Oscar), but it’s never too early to speculate.

First, this caveat: I’ve still not seen three films said to be strong contenders, so it’s too early to list these here: “Les Mis,” directed by Tom Hooper, who made “The King’s Speech;” Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” about the killing of Bin Laden, and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” with Jamie Foxx as an escaped slave and Leonardo Di Caprio as a plantation owner.

Among the contenders I have seen, the most warmly-loved by moviegoers seems to be Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi.” In many seasons as a critic, I can’t remember a film more universally applauded. I wrote a blog entry about it, and my often dubious readers embraced it all but unanimously. Will public affection influence the Academy? Maybe.
