Last year it was evident to me that the best picture was going to be The King's Speech. There was no discussion, because of the storyline, the actor's performances, the scenes, the editing, soundtrack, etc. It was a master piece. However, regarding this year's nominees for best picture is not clear to me which movie could be the winner. Unfortunately, I have not seen all the nominees for best picture, but I have heard good comments regarding: The Help, Moneyball and Hugo. Until now my vote would be for Moneyball! Why? because I like Brad Pitt's performance, as well as Jonah Hill's, the storyline and the editing. However, the favorite seems to be The Artist. Let's see what happens on February 26th, can't wait!
So, you can make your pick for Best Picture, the nominees are:
Thomas Langmann, Producer
Jim Burke, Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, Producers
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Scott Rudin, Producer
Brunson Green, Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathan, Producers
