Defamer Predictions: The Best Picture Oscar Nominees

You've read our other nomination prognostications; now, who will challenge Slumdog Millionaire for the Best Picture Oscar? No one—the real question is whether Wall-E can claim that final spot. So what do we think?

SURE LOCKS
Slumdog Millionaire
Milk
The Dark Knight
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

If you're as bored of reading about these four Best Picture contenders as we are of typing them, congratulations! They've been nom-nom-nommed for everything (thanks, TenTimesFiltered!), and they're not about to stop now.

LIKELY NOMINEES
Frost/Nixon

For as much as people have expected Frost/Nixon to win a Best Picture slot, we haven't talked to anyone who was personally touting it. This nomination would be the one of the five that people would struggle to remember next year; we'll see if people have already forgotten.

DARK HORSES
Wall-E
The Wrestler

Which means there's hope, Wall-E and Ram! Just, you know, not that much of it. Still, our fingers (both those that are mechanical claws, and those that are bound with wrestling tape) are crossed. Good luck!
