Your Choice for Best Motion Picture

Of the nine nominees announced by the Academy, which is your pick for the Oscar?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced nine films in the category of Best Motion Picture for 2011.  They are:

  • The Help
  • The Artist
  • Moneyball
  • The Descendants
  • Midnight in Paris
  • War Horse
  • Hugo
  • The Tree of Life
  • Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Oscar nominations are made weeks before the Golden Globes, so those awards don't influence the Academy's picks.  "Hollywood loves movies about Hollywood," said a guest on Today.  That, and the fact the average age of Academy voters is over 60, may have influenced the decisions.

The 84th Academy Awards will be broadcast live Feb. 26 on ABC.
