Unless Phillip Seymour Hoffman is in the Best Supporting Actor category, it's looking like Tommy Lee Jones may just win it for Lincoln.

Working with that director, it just seems like a pitch Pitt could hit out of the park.
I'm glad you mention it, because I've been looking forward to it as well. Brad Pitt is on quite a creative streak recently (he's never exactly been box-office gold though). However, often times when so many talented actors get together to create a "super-cast", what happens is that none of them actually end up with a nomination. According to a few reviewers though, this is apparently Brad Pitt's best recent work.

Nonetheless, I'm also excited to see the work of cinematographer Greg Frieser, who's previously worked with Jane Campion on Bright Star, if you haven't seen it yet, please do watch it.

Oh, and is anyone else hoping that Jonny Greenwood wins Best Score?
