Default Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1

Lincoln and Argo are pretty big mainstream hits. I also think Les Miserables looks more likely than Django to be a huge box office breakout. SLP could do it if it breaks out in January.

I actually think there may be room for a tenth token nomination for a blockbuster if the Academy really, really does snub The Master for its unconventionality or any of the indies like The Sessions. I still maintain TDKR has a better shot than Skyfall or Hobbit--and I have no idea why some think The Avengers has a shot--but my guess is the Academy will fill that tenth slot with a deserving indie. Oh well.
