2. Midnight in Paris
3. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
4. The Descendants
5. The Artist
6. Shame
7. The Tree of Life
8. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
9. Moneyball
10. Hugo-NEW
Previously on my list-J. Edgar-After mixed reviews and a lukewarm box office, Eastwood's latest endeavor will easily be forgotten. 

Best Director
1. Steven Spielberg-Warhorse
2. Stephen Daldry-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
3. Michel Hazanavicius-The Artist
4. Alexander Payne-The Descendants
5. Terrence Malick-The Tree of Life-NEW
Previously on my list-Woody Allen-Midnight in Paris-Competition is rough this year and Allen seems like the weakest link in this category.

Best Actor
1. Michael Fassbender-Shame
2. Brad Pitt-Moneyball
3. George Clooney-The Descendants
4. Leonardo Dicaprio-J. Edgar
5. Jean DuJardin-The Artist
No Change but heavy contender-Gary Oldman-Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Best Supporting Actor
1.Christopher Plummer-Beginners
2. Viggo Mortensen-A Dangerous Method
3.Phillip Seymour Hoffman-The Ides of March-NEW
4.Kenneth Branagh-My Week Marilyn
5.Max Von Sydow-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close-NEW
Previously on the List-George Clooney-The Ides of March, Colin Firth-Tinker Tailor 
Soldier Spy-Clooney's nomination will undoubtedly come from The Descendants and as a result he has no chnace for The Ides of March. As for Firth he did not score a nomination from the BIFA and his two costars Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy did instead.

3. Bernice Bejo-The Artist-NEW
4. Octavia Spencer-The Help
