2012 is shaping up to be an awards season of an exceptionally strong diversity of potential front runners. You can make a good case for a handful of movies that could potentially go the distance. I am glad to see that this is driving some folks to fully commit to specific nominees before any decisive consensus is reached. For example: http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2012/11/silver_robot_ni.php
So in the middle of the busiest time of Oscar hopeful releases, we also have that other movie coming out, so keeping with the times, call me one for #teamsilverlinings.
