"You can't build cover stories around a movie that doesn't exist. You need a script, you need a producer. "

If There Had Been 5 (9 movies items)

" Argo and Lincoln were the two obvious locks going into nomination morning, Silver Linings Playbook was a crowd-pleaser, and had the ever important Weinstein tag on it, and Life of Pi had hung on all throughout the season. Assuming that those four were locked in (they were), the only real question mark would be the fifth spot. Zero Dark Thirty was clearly the critic's favorite but, judging by Bigelow's director snub, it didn't have the support that many expected. Some would probably argue that "
