These are the 2013 Oscar nominated movies:
"Beasts of the Southern Wild"
"Life of Pi"
"Silver Linings Playbook"
"Zero Dark Thirty"
I don't know much about either of them, and there's a few that I have no wish to see, although I may watch the one that wins the Oscar.
The ones I may watch are: Amour (way sad), Beasts of the Southern Wild because it sounds interesting, Silver Linings Playbook because I like Bradley Cooper, and maybe Life of Pi.
I have no interest in Argo, although I understand is a good movie and I like Ben Affleck, Django Unchained although I like other Tarantino movies, Les Miserables because is all singing and I know the story, Lincoln because I am not into historic movies, Zero Dark Thirty because Bin Laden is dead so i know the ending :)
By the way, for what I read, the favorite to win is Lincoln.
All in all, not what I would have chosen for Oscar. But then I am not a critic. Most of those movies are way too heavy for me. I'm more into fluff :)
