Out of those listed in the intial post, the only has no chance in hell at getting nominated is J.Edgar (wouldn't be shocked if Decaprio got a Best Actor nomination, but that's the only nomination that it has a chance at getting). Here's what I think will get nominated for Best Picture this year:
The Descendants
War Horse
The Iron Lady
The Tree Of Life
The Artist
Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
A Dangerous Method
Moneyball
50/50

This very could be completely wrong. The Best Picture field is far, far harder to predict this year than last year. There are very few locks this year (I would say The Descendants and War Horse are the only locks).

Moneyball is fairly likely for a Best Picture nod, I would say. I'd be very happy if Hugo was nominated too. It should definitely get a nom for Art Direction as well.

Nice call on Moneyball. Of the movie I've seen it would get my nod.

Moneyball and 50/50 are ones I could see getting a nomination but no chance in hell they can win. The movie was good and I hate to be a douche, but having read the book first it put a damper on the movie for me since it completely skipped a couple of the great side stories the book covered.

Book Snob Alert... BEEEEP!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha Just kidding man.

My buddy said the same exact thing. He liked the movie but couldn't believe how many great parts of the book were left out.

My argument to him was in a year of so few great films if there ever was a year a movie like Moneyball could win, it would be 2011.

Here are the updated odds:

Girl with Dragon Tattoo fell below Harry Potter. Yikes! As long as The Help doesn't win...

The Descendant's +225
The Artist +250
War Horse +330
J. Edgar +600
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close +700
The Help +700
The Ides of March +1000
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy +1000
Albert Nobbs +1200
Midnight in Paris +1200
The Tree of Life +1400
A Dangerous Method +1400
The Iron Lady +1400
My Week With Marilyn +1400
The Invention of Hugo Cabret +1400
Coriolanus +1400
Meek's Cutoff +1600
Moneyball +1600
Water for Elephants +1600
Harry Potter & The Deathly Hollows +1600
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo +2000
Super 8 +2000
Contagion +2000

Forgot all about The Artist! That's definitely a lock.

Oh man, I forgot about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. A precocious kid, Tom Hanks and 9/11? That's even bigger Oscar bait than War Horse and Iron Lady.

Tree of Life? The movie that got this review is actually being taken seriously?
