I’ve kind of run out of time here. Oh well. I won’t go into any reasoning. Just assume I’m right. If I had an Oscar ballot, here is what I’d submit (voters rank their choices 1-9):

django1. Django Unchained

2. Argo

3. Life of Pi

4. Zero Dark Thirty

5. Lincoln

6. Beasts of the Southern Wild

7. Les Miserables

8. Amour

9. Silver Linings Playbook
