“A Prophet (Un Prophète)” France
“The White Ribbon” Germany

Upset Contender: "The Secret in their Eyes" could pull an upset. It's a very commercial film with some fine performances. It's fiftysomething "heroes" appeal to the Academy demographic (sad, but true), but it's nowhere near the achievement of "Ribbon" or "Prophet."
