Countdown to the Oscars – our picks for Best Picture

he 84th showing of the Academy Awards will air on ABC on Sunday the 26th of February and we at Geek for E have decided to join in on the fun and give you our predictions of who will win.

This is the big one…the one we’ve all been waiting for. Who will win for Best Picture??
And with that…the nominations go to…
BEST PICTURE …the nominations go to:
“The Artist”
“The Descendants”
“Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”
“The Help”
“Midnight in Paris”
“The Tree of Life”
“War Horse”

Alex: I think “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” will get the win.  A moving story dealing with a tragedy that is still close to home for a lot of people with a strong leading cast of Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock…need I go on??? Story. Stars. Strong emotions. Winner!

Denise: Oh please cinema gods, anything but The Tree of Life!  Wait, I have to pick something?  Okay, I’d go with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, but the fact that neither lead got a nod makes me think this is a long shot.  This is a producer’s award to win, so my idea of The Help getting the nod may be far off.  So I’ll say The Artist.  

Matthew: I think “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” will get the win. I honestly think the best picture of 2011 is Warrior though.

Tatiana: I’m going with Moneyball. I know it’s a long shot, but what can I say– I like the underdog… “How can you NOT get romantic about baseball?”

Rock: The Descendants.  Just the best I’ve seen, but what worries me is the film is rated R.  I’ve rewatched the film twice now and I have to say – where is the rating coming from?  A couple potty-mouth bits of dialogue, but no nudity or excessive violence, I can’t figure the rating out.

Score card…
Alex – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Denise – The Artists
Matthew – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Tatiana – Moneyball
Rock – The Descendants
