I'm just...baffled.  How the hell did Argo not win this?  I guess it isn't as strong as I thought it would be here.  I have a feeling Zero Dark Thirty is going to Social Network its way to a loss come Oscar night (go ahead Tom Hooper and steal another Oscar).  Seriously, this is insane. 

What are your thoughts here?

  1. Yeah, I'm stunned. Is Argo dead? Will ZDT win everything but the guilds? Can Les Mis win the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Producers Guild for an Oscar finish? I don't think ZDT will win everything, but who knows? While this is an exciting development, it could make for another boring Oscar season. Unless Les Mis sweeps in and wins. :)
