In recent years films such as The Dark Knight and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 seem to have generated the hopeful buzz from movie fans when it comes to the Oscars and both films ended without Best Picture nominations, which is always the one Oscar nom those fans want to see. You won't find many of them sitting around sulking because the final Potter film didn't get a Best Pic nom only to have one happy-go-lucky person jump in with, "But come on, those Best Art Direction, Makeup and Visual Effects noms made up for it!" Nope, that's not how it works and while films like Inception and Avatar have been nominated for Best Picture, I would hardly call them longshots. So the question this year is... what about Skyfall? Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but I don't think it has a chance... at least not for Best Picture. »
