Here’s the next round table of Oscar hopefuls from The Hollywood Reporter. Included in this discussion are Alexander Payne (The Descendants), Mike Mills (Beginners), Steve McQueen (Shame), Jason Reitman (Young Adult), Bennett Miller (Moneyball), and Michael Hazanavicius (The Artist). Once again, don’t be surprised if a few of the actual nominees and the winning director isn’t from this list. Some favorites to win the award include Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris), Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life), David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Steve Spielberg (War Horse), Martin Scorsese (Hugo), Stephen Daldry (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), and Tate Taylor (The Help). It’s a wide open race this year, but at this juncture, I would probably place my vote in for Hazanavicius, Malick, or Spielberg.
