2012 Oscar Predictions

Image courtesy of AMPAS.

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 84th Academy Awards, which will be announced live in Los Angeles on February 26, 2012. Also check out our poll of blogger and critics as to who will and should win, as well as a personal rant on why this year's award season was a major disappointment.

Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" and Michel Hazanavicius's "The Artist" led the nominations with 11 and 10 mentions, respectively. They were both nominated for best picture, alongside "The Descendants," "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," "The Help," "Midnight in Paris," "Moneyball," "The Tree of Life" and "War Horse."

"The Artist" certainly seems like the film to beat at this point, and in general most categories seem pretty sewn up. Check out predictions in all categories below.  For clips of the films nominated in major categories, take a look at Press Play's picks for who should win.

    this man named JOHN YIYI is an officially a SCAM. I availed his service, and he was asked me to pay a sum of $220. when I paid the $220 through western union, he replied back to me and ask for another payment of $380 as this spell work will be concluded at once for the gods to appeal.when I had a feeling not to continue but I try pursue it to pay to the two (2) branches of western union in my country but the staffs won't allow me due to the scams in Nigeria, I emailed him back and empathize him to bring back my hard earned money that I paid for but he threatened me through the gods who got an instant madness on me, curse and will experience death in 2 weeks which he claimed.I emailed him a lot of times but didn't received any messages from him anymore hence, after more than 2 weeks nothing happened to me. to conclude this man named Agoni Nelson a.k.a JOHN YIYI is a FRAUD AND A SCAM. BEWARE OF THIS MAN.

    Here is my MTCN which i had a 2 transactions with him.

    Three weeks ago my Husband broke up with me. it all started when I Travel to UK to spend my holiday with my Uncle, I was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from UK I saw him with a lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gives me sleepless night. I called my friend told her what happened and she introduce me to a spell cater who helped her long time ago. And I contact him and I never believed that the spell will work so easily because I don't believe in spell or anything called magical because I have contacted many spell casters to get him back all they do is to take my money with no result. I am happy to tell you that my Husband is back and committed to me alone and he do whatever I ask him to do with love and care. All thanks to spirituallove@hotmail.com the great magician who helped me to restore my Husband to me. I am Lina Peter.

    John Yi Yi Pray for my husband to stop cheating on me with his ex-girlfriend. Me & my husband have been married for 3 yrs. We have lived together for 16yrs and been together almost 17 yrs. I am asking John Yi Yi to remove the ex-girlfriend from my husbands heart and remove her from our marriage. I believe there is an unGodly hold on my husband. He even admits that he doesn't trust her and that I am a better woman than she is and says she is greedy, selfish and a liar. But he still sneaks to call her on the phone etc. She also is very persistent. This is her nature to stay connected to ex-boyfriends etc. He is not the first. My husband is a christian and is just doing the opposite of what a christian does. I believe he is drinking again. He says he has changed. He has been back and forth for the past year now. He even joined her Devil church. She believes Magic sent him to her. She wants him to divorce me and marry her. She thinks this is Satan’s plan. He says he doesn't want to keep hurting me. He says he still loves and is in love with me. He said he doesn't think he could stop seeing her. He was faithful to me for over 16 years. I think he is in a midlife crisis and the devil is messing with him. I do not want to divorce him but I am getting to the point where I had enough. I keep praying to God. My husband isn't the Godly man I know. He needs to repent to God and turn away. This woman is being used by Satan. I pray she repents and turns to God and walks away from my husband. I pray for God to physically remove her from his life. I also order prayer for my son. I am asking John Yi Yi to heal his mind, heart and emotions. I believe my family is restored with the power of John Yi Yi the spell caster. I am not giving up. The devil loves to smokescreen situations. Now my Husband is in love with me and my family and promise not to lookup to other woman outside accept me her wife so today is a very happy day in my life to share this grate testimonies to everyone in this prayer ground.

  • I NEED MY EX LOVER BACK TO ME NOW | January 17, 2013 7:36 AMReply

    My name is Camissiol LEOKI, from Canada USA. I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is John Yi Yi he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better.

I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster.SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS JOHN YIYI ORACLE TEMPLE.My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next two days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life..

    Passion picks like “Tree of Life” are not likely to make a mark on Oscar night; with nine films up for the top prize, the Academy’s preferential voting system strongly favors consensus choices. Not everyone loved “The Artist” — it’s not quite an amour fou — but very few Academy members seem to dislike it. Voilà: the winner.

    THE ARTIST was wonderful and everything I could ever want in a film. While there has been some backlash with detractors saying it is too light and fluffy, the film has undeniable charm and was clearly made as a love letter to old Hollywood. Based on the months of pre-show awards results THE ARTIST is poised to win Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director. I also loved HUGO and would be thrilled if that were to win Best Picture of any other awards for that matter

    magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.

    Many people here commenting on movies apparently cannot spell words they use every day, nor form coherent sentences in the English language.
    Therefore, their opinion on movies should be disregarded, as would be a load of crap.

    Viola looks stunning. Minnie awesome girl. You look beautiful. J. Lo you'd have to convince me that you have twins. You look untampered. Glen Close just an amazing transformation. You deserve the best always. George Clooney that's all I have to say. Can't forget Brad. I mean who could. You're everywhere and you're eye candy thank you for all the talent. Such wonderful movies.

    Viola Davis is an excellent actress. She gets me every scene she shows up. But there's no way she would be superior to Meryl Streep. No one can portray the most powerful PM of Britain. They casted her, 'american actress' while there're so many great british actress with a real british accent. Meryl could do what Viola simply did in The Help. But Viola couldn't do what Meryl did in The Iron Lady. If Viola won, which she seems to, she would join the list the actress who should have not won Best Actress like Gwyneth Paltrow (rob Cate Blanchett), Julia Roberts(rob Ellen Burstyn), Reese Witherspoon(rob Felicity Huffman), Sandra Bullock(rob Gabourey Sidibe). Period.

  • Film50 | February 24, 2012 5:23 PMReply

    With all respect, Viola Davis was 'a help', not a leader. Should not have been in the Best actress category (of any award).

  • Eric | February 24, 2012 4:56 PMReply

    While it is true that the Oscars don't always nominate the best films, I feel their nominations do, typically, go to good films. However, I was confused by the inclusion of "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and "War Horse." Neither of these films are Oscar-worthy, especially in a year where so many quality films were snubbed. The fact that Stephen Daldry's exploitative tear-jerker gets a nod when the excellent "Drive" was completely ignored is, in my opinion, an absolute embarrassment to the Academy. And "War Horse" was typical Spielbergian over-the-topness. Are the Oscars the new Grammys?

    I think the best actress is Glenn Close in the film Albert Nobbs, with Janet McTree always in the sam film.

  • Dan | February 23, 2012 9:23 PMReply

    The Artist is a trivial, totally predictable, gimmicky but mildly attractive movie, but has no business being considered a Best movie. 80 + years later, somebody made a reasonably competent, pleasant silent movie. A Nice trifle. But this year there were at least a half dozen Much better movies, i.e. more thought-provoking, better acted and directed, with actual plots. For example, Hugo, The Descendants, Moneyball, The Help, and I personally liked much more Tree of Life, Melancholia, and The Adjustment Bureau. But I guess they are only talkies, as far as Hollywood cares.

  • Dan | February 24, 2012 7:47 AM

    Further follow-up: With all due respect to the other very good movies I mention above [Not the Artist], my easy selection as Best Movie of the Year would be Hugo. As a movie about silent movies, and Cinema, compared to the trivial Artist, it is vastly more interesting, inspired, visually dynamic and stimulating, much better music, much better acted and directed. Ben Kingsley should have been nominated for it. As a fan of many of Scorsese's movies, I predict that in 20 or 50 years Hugo will be considered one of the Master's very best.

    To realize how ridiculous the Oscars are (as people like George C. Scott did turning down two best actor awards; other notable no shows = woody allen; marlin brando) you only have to rem ember that Rocky was chosen best picture over what continues to be regarded as a masterpiece, Taxi Driver. The Oscars are midly entertaining, but are a true joke in terms of a measure of the craft.

  • David | February 25, 2012 4:22 PM

    The Hurt Locker was a spellbinding, timely, heart pounding drama about a REAL situation happening as we speak, the characters based on true people, incredibly original and complex. No fancy sets or spectacles, it was every movement of each character's face and the tauntness of dialogue coming from their do or die situation and the relationship therein that held up captive through every moment; whereas, Avatar was a technical, formulaic "spectacle" [look it up]. We are awash now in these spectacles thanks to technology, and most movies today cater to the masses with spectacle, offering little in the way of substance and "content" -- though I would consider Avatar a step above that cliche, as nobody does "special effects" set against a sentimental love story sub plot as well as James Cameron. So, yeah, Avatar was a very enjoyable and entertaining film that I would see again and it had lots of eye candy and action, but just because people went to the movies over and over again to see Avatar [probably high on drugs, hoping to glean a far-out experience, man] -- doesn't equal movie greatness -- only "cult" movie status, BIG DIFFERENCE. I appreciate that you may be movie lovers and know what you personally like, you are obviously not aware of what makes a great film.

  • Archie_Leach | February 18, 2012 5:26 PM

    crapatar didn't get BP cause cameron took a technically great movie and inserted a simpleton manipulative "shove-the-message-in-your-face" propagandistic storyline into it and it turned a LOT of people off from crapatar. Not that The Hurt Locker is Citizen Kane or something but only 2 years later crapatar is not holding up well and will never get on any film historians list of great films I can guarantee you. The Hurt Locker may not age well either but it's reputation will never drop like craptars is.

    The Academy Awards will slowly be forgotten within years to come due to the fact that the Oscar officials and voters no longer vote for the best, they just vote for who they like to see win... In the acting category, one should vote base on transformation and ability to execute an outstanding performance. Then again, in recent years many good performance were overlook and not acknowledge which account for the decreasing popularity of the Oscars. One can honestly say that the Academy Awards is no longer valid nor does it marks a person position in the Film Industry. The Academy Award can prevent this from occurring by changing the pattern to which films are nominated and process of electing a winners. In short terms, change the length of voters allowed to vote, instead of more than 5000 voters where bias votes exist, why not allow a minimum of 150 voters to prevent racial and bias votes from occurring and make it more considerable. That is of-course my opinion on the Academy Awards which i believe will sooner disappear from the public image. One more thing, the Oscars will never have as much rating as the Super Bowl.................................................

  • Bull | February 10, 2012 1:09 PMReply

    My wife an I have recently completed watching most of the nominees. We were quite surprised how slow/lengthy/dragged down three of the notable nominess became about 2/3 thru. "My Week w/Marilyn", "Hugo" and "The Artist" just didn't have the content to support the length of the film, which REALLY surprised me mostly from Scorcese. We are particularly amused (and to some extent, saddened) the the shallow Hollywood rush to this year's great gimmick: "The Artist". Look, it was enjoyable, but really? In our minds, the Best Picture is either "The Help" or "The Descendants", but hmmm..., no gimmick. There's no question that this year SHOULD BE George Clooney's year for best actor. If Clooney doesn't win, then it will be very similar to Cheryl's comment below, when somehow Cher beat out Glenn Close in one of Close's best (if not the best) role of her life. As I recall "Hollywood" said it was for Cher's "Body of Work". It really is sad how shallow Hollywood can be. We're pulling for you Geroge! Maybe you'll get some respect for YOUR body of work. But, who knows with the fickle, silly Hollywood crowd.

    i stopped really taking the oscars seriously after adrian brody beat daniel day-lewis in 2003. that made absolutely no logical sense to me. one man slightly altered his accent and acted nervous and emotional, and one actor transformed every single thing about themselves to unbelievable lengths. and the former won the award. i still cant get over it

    Adrien Brody was perfect in The Pianist as it was Day- Lewis in There Will be Blood. I still remember Brody in that movie and sometime want other actors to be that good or maybe himself again.

    A correction to one of my comments about the great original music score from "The Artist". It was not the musical piece by Bernard Hermann from the Hitchcock film "Vertigo". It was from "North by Northwest" when Cary Grant was sneaking up on James Mason's compound near Mt. Rushmore to rescue Eva Marie Saint.

    "The Artist" should get the award for "Biggest Artistic Gimmick of the Year". It was not a bad movie and an okay tribute to the silent era but why Best Picture nominee? I'm amazed at how many people loved this film and think it's so original. First of all it's "A Star is Born" done for the fourth time (they've tried to give that storyline the Best Picture Oscar before). Secondly, these comments I've read about how great the music was. Is it just me that noticed that they borrowed music by Bernard Hermann from the Alfred Hitchcock film "Vertigo" towards the climax of the film? I was expecting something unique for a silent film to be done in 2012 but it never came. I felt it was an average retro film. For those of you who love this so much, just turn on Turner Classic Movies on Sunday evenings. There are many original silent films that are far better than this one.
