We've all followed the Oscars long enough to be realistic about what can and cannot happen. No matter how much you love Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables, you know he'll lose to Daniel Day-Lewis. No matter how much you might love Scarlett Johansson's Oscar-nominated song from Chasing Ice, everyone knows she'll be steamrolled by Adele's "Skyfall."

But just because you're realistic doesn't mean you can't have dreams, especially for the movies you love that you're worried might be totally ignored by the Academy. So with just a few hours left to go before the year's glitziest awards show, we're making our last-minute pleas for our favorite nominees, why they deserve to win and why we're rooting for them despite the odds (well, except for Mack's pitch for Best Actress frontrunner Jennifer Lawrence). Check out our picks and let us know your own favorites in the comments.

Best Original Screenplay: Django Unchained
by Eric Eisenberg
As a Quentin Tarantino fan and a realist, I know that Django Unchained has no real shot at winning best picture and it’s a crime that he didn’t get the nomination for Best Director, but for a filmmaker like Tarantino the Best Original Screenplay award is just as good as either. He is one of the best storytellers we have, and that’s something that needs to be celebrated at every occasion.
