Tom has published his annual Oscar picks :
 I'm so glad that Tom picked Silver Linings - I thought it was a terrific movie - especially loved all of the great characters - good story, good casting, good movie.

I pick Jennifer Lawrence as best actress, and DeNiro as best supporting actor.

Tom and I disagree about Les Miserables. I thought it was so gripping that I could barely blink. At the opening scene, the men pulling the boat, I was so spellbound that my hand stayed above the popcorn bag for about 10 minutes and then I forgot all about popcorn for the rest of the movie.
I pick Hugh Jackman for best actor. The man just oozes talent in every direction. 

It's an epic, a classic. Read the book by Victor Hugo. I saw it on stage only once, at the Fox in Detroit. I liked the movie better. I really enjoy the PBS production with the cast in costumes and no sets - just doing the music - wow. I'm not a fan of Ann Hathaway's portrayal of Fantine. Personally, I really enjoyed Samantha Barks as Eponine immensely.

Best Movie - Les Miserables

I would pick Sally Field as supporting actress.

Best director - Ang Lee

Life of Pi gets all of the technical awards .

Here's where I have to admit I haven't seen Lincoln.
