What Film SHOULD Win the Best Picture Oscar?

There has been a lot of talk, in certain circles, about which film is going to walk away with the Oscar.  Will it be Lincoln, or will Argo make a lat minute sneak attack and take home the top gold?  For what it's worth, I believe the latter will end up happening on February 24th.  Director Affleck's snub at the Oscars - while winning pretty much every other award known to humanity - is probably the one defining element that will make such a thing happen.  But then, we are not here to talk about who or what WILL win the Oscar, but instead, who or what SHOULD win the damn thing.  And this is your chance to say so.

I first opened this poll the day of the Oscar nominations announcement, and so far 136 votes have been cast.  Pretty damn good, if you ask me, but it could be better - which is the exact reason why this post exists.  To let everyone know that it is here, or there, or wherever cyberspace really is.  So get your vote on everyone.  If you were handed an Oscar ballot, who would you pick?  Would it be the thrills of Django or Zero Dark Thirty?  Would it be the heartache of Beasts or Amour?  Would it be the suspense of Argo or the stature of Lincoln?  Would it be spectacle of Les Mis, or Miz, if you prefer?  Would it be the ADD comedy of Silver Linings or the sheer visual audacity of Life of Pi?  Which film would you pick to take home the gold?  

All you have to do is go on over to the poll - found conveniently near the top of the sidebar of this very site - and choose which of the nine BP nominees is your favourite.  And please remember, feel free to post as many comments as your heart desires (the more, the merrier - we can never have enough comments), but in order for your vote to count, you must click on the actual poll itself.  The poll will go on until Friday, February 22nd, and the final results will be posted right here (same bat channel and all that) on Saturday, February 23rd.  And, incidentally, speaking of the Oscars, my predictions for the big night will be posted early on Sunday, February 24th.  So go vote people - and send everyone you know this way too.  Let's rock the vote!

Thanx. So far there have been 244 hits on the page over the last day, which is fantastic, but strangely enough, only about 15 of those actually took the time to vote on the poll itself. But they are at least coming here, which I suppose will help in some way...right?

Since "a movie that wasn't nominated" isn't one of the options I voted for LINCOLN.

For which film would you have voted?
