Lincoln, Argo, Les Misérables, Django Unchained, Silver Linings Playbook, Life of Pi, and Zero Dark Thirty are the frontrunners for Oscar nods.
With the Academy Awards coming in February, there has been wide speculation about which movies will be receiving nominations this year. And, for once, voters of the academy may agree with public opinion!
According to USA Today, both Steven Spielberg’s flick Lincoln and Ben Affleck’s film Argo have exceeded $100 million in revenue since their release dates, almost certainly securing them to be contenders for Best Picture. Les Misérables has already earned a whopping $67 million and Django Unchained $63 million since they opened on Christmas day.
Despite not drawing in as many viewers, Silver Linings Playbook, Life of Pi, and Zero Dark Thirty also come to mind as possible award winners.
The LA Times reports that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is giving their members an extra 24 hours, extending to Friday, January 4 at 5 p.m. to vote, so they can get use to the new electronic system of voting.
Oscar 2013 nominations will officially be announced on January 10.
