Ladies and gentlemen, the Best Picture race is just about a done deal. It looks almost certain that Argo is going to win the biggest Oscar of them all. For a season that had the award leaning in the direction of Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty at different points (not to mention way back when The Great Gatsby was supposedly a safe bet), seeing the race end up between Argo and Silver Linings Playbook (with the former out in front of the latter by a solid margin) rubs some the wrong way.

There are two schools of thought surrounding how Argo got where it is today. Both have some validity to them, but both have holes. They both also have to do with a certain category snub for the film and its filmmaker.

As is the case every year with »
