Among this year’s favorites for best picture nominations are “Argo,” “Lincoln,” “Les Misérables” and “Life of Pi.”

“Zero Dark Thirty,” is also among the favorites, but political controversy over it’s portrayal of torture may work against it. The latest, and perhaps best James Bond movie “Skyfall” is a darkhorse for several nominations.

Among possible best director candidates are Steven Spielberg for “Lincoln,” Kathryn Bigelow for “Zero Dark Thirty,” and Ang Lee for “Life of Pi.”

Darkhorse possibilities include Tom Hooper for “Les Miserables” and sentimental favorite Ben Affleck, who made his directing debut with “Argo.” Quentin Tarantino, who got a Golden Globe nomination, also can’t be counted out for for “Django Unchained.”
