I know it's only August, but I thought it might be fun to predict what the Best Picture Oscar Nominees will be for 2013 based solely on trailers and buzz. Let's see how accurate this was come February '14. 

Honorable Mentions: 

Best Picture Nominees (assuming the Academy picks 10) 

There are more I could easily put on this list. The fact that there are so many Oscar-contender-like movies this year is a good thing.
