Will Marvel's heroes win the day?
Movie of the Year
"The Dark Knight Rises"
"Silver Linings Playbook"
What will win: "The Avengers"
What should win: "Django Unchained"
Why: Not only did everyone see "The Avengers," but judging by a domestic box office gross north of $600 million, it's safe to assume everyone saw it again, meaning they liked it. Let's face it, this one is right up the demographic's wheelhouse. I'd love to see "Django," incidentally my favorite of the Best Picture Oscar nominees, pull it off, but follow the money.
