Oscar Watch: Predicting Best Picture

by at .  Updated at .

When the Academy Award nominations were announced, there was no question that Lincoln was the film to beat. But, something unique happened that the makers of Argo could never had predicted: Ben Affleck's snub for Best Director would catapult his film into the favorite's spot to win Best Picture. But will it? Oscar Watch looks at the race for Best Picture.

    As much as I think that Ben Affleck deserved a Best Director nomination, I think it's ridiculous to name "Argo" as Best Picture as a sort of compensation. Compensation should never be a reason to give something or someone an Oscar, and "Argo" was not the year's best picture.

    Argo was the best picture I saw this year. Lincoln was very boring.
