I haven't seen any of these unfortunately, but I'm gonna guess Beasts.

Yeah. Everyone's been flipping out over Zeitlin and Haneke being nominated, but I think they deserve to be in there way more than Lee and Russell do. Personally think it should have been (at least out of the possibilities) Affleck, Bigelow, Haneke, Spielberg, Zeitlin.

Sure do wish Affleck could have gotten the nod.

Also, I think Bigelow, her movie, and especially her lead actress are getting too much praise. Holy hell, that actress was terrible.

I just don't understand how anyone can say Chastain would forward a good performance. Two scenes that stick out in my mind as being especially bad are the diner scene where she's discussing the prospect of banging her coworker and the amazing "I'm the mother fucker" scene.

Don't really see how Spielberg can lose this, even if he doesn't get Picture.
