    On those lists, I'm most looking forward to Abscam, Wolf of Wall Street, Monuments Men, Saving Mr. Banks, Twelve Years a Slave, Gravity, Fruitvale, and Man of Steel.

    Not even sure why people are even considering Man of Steel, though. I think it looks great, but even if it is a masterpiece, it has no chance.

    Also, that list seriously lacks Only God Forgives.

    THE ABSOLUTE FRONT RUNNER AT THIS TIME:

    The Monuments Men

    Director: George Clooney

    Starring: Daniel Craig, Matt Damon, George Clooney, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin.

    Story: In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.

    My bet is on Inside Llewyn Davis. You can't go wrong with the Coens.

    Doesn't this kind of illustrate that there is indeed "Oscar bait" films in that we can apparently identify Oscar contenders entirely by plot synopses, since no one has actually seen them or knows they are good yet?

    Yes in the sense that the Oscars generally don't go for genre movies. And a lot of these projects listed above involve people some of the best working today.

    I'm most interested in Fruitvale because of the buzz on Michael B. Jordan's performance. It would be nice to see an Oscar nom for a young black male not named Denzel or Will.

    With Winesteins buying it, I could definitely see Fruitvale being a contender.

    Gosling/Refn and Fassbender/McQueen are always movies to look out for.

    And I'd love to see Side by Side win Best Documentary so I can see Keanu give an Oscar speech.

    The early word on Before Midnight is best of the series, which, if true, makes it at least a critical darling, a contender at the Independent Spirit awards, and possibly an Oscar contender.
