Best Picture Battle
WTOP Film Critic Jason Fraley gives his best case for and against each Best Picture nominee.
'Zero Dark Thirty'
Why It Could Win:
"Zero Dark Thirty" was the top rated nominee among the critics (95 percent Metacritic). It was also named Best Film by the National Board of Review, Writers Guild of America (Original Screenplay) and the critics associations of Austin, Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Vancouver and Washington D.C.
Why It Won't Win:
Kathryn Bigelow was already given Best Picture three years ago for "The Hurt Locker." Expect the Academy to look elsewhere, especially due to the film's lengthy tradecraft and political controversy.
