Zero Dark Thirty
Picture, Actress, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing, Sound Editing
It’s hard to say more than what’s already been said about Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. The film brings the exhausting, tortured (if you’ll pardon the pun) search for Osama bin Laden to light and it’s endlessly fascinating. The last time Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal teamed up we got The Hurt Locker, which won six Oscars out of the nine it was nominated for, including Best Picture. Though Bigelow’s lack of a Best Director nomination suggests it might not happen the same way this year, this is still one of the movies that nobody can stop talking about-- and that’s a powerful thing.

Les Miserables
Picture, Actor, Supporting Actress, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Song, Production Design, Sound Mixing
Tom Hooper was best known for his work on British television before The King’s Speech arrive in 2010, but we haven’t viewed him in the same way since. Much like Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, Hooper’s Les Miserables is a Best Picture follow-up and even under an staggering amount of pressure it stands up. The story of toil and suffering in post-Revolution France is as emotionally wrenching as ever, and it’s only made more powerful by the fact that the songs were performed live on set instead of in a studio.
