I've only seen two--The Help and The Tree of Life.

I like the individual performances of the actors in The Help, but don't feel it's a strong enough movie for Best Picture. Parts of it felt disjointed and it seemed to be missing something--it seemed to be searching for a "tone" throughout, flipping between heartfelt and campy.

I absolutely loved The Tree of Life. I found it absorbing and a visual delight. This movie is a love it or hate it type, and from what I've read on the internet, most people hated it. The movie has no conventional plot, rather it muses on "life" from creation to the scattered memories of a childhood. Even if you don't care for the movie, the cinematography alone is worth a view. Every scene is simply breathtaking.

The Tree of Life is the only one I've seen. I doubt that it'll win. Most people that I've talked to have only seen The Help. Most seem to think that The Artist will probably win. Personally, I picked Hugo. I haven't seen it, but I've just got my hunches based on what I've read.

Didn't Tree win Cannes? The only one I have seen is Moneyball. A good movie but not best picture of the year. I wish I had seen War Horse and Hugo so I could vote properly.

Also, I'm pretty sure that the statuette award for tonight is a little Ultraman.

I actually haven't seen any of them, so I can't vote...

I saw Midnight in Paris only because it was being shown on a plane. It was entertaining, but I can't believe how it got nominated for Best Picture. So formulaic.
