10 Best Picture Nominees - Predictions...Where Do I Begin?

I'm actually pretty intrigued to see how 10 Best Picture Nominees will effect the nominee landscape.

I won't lie. I think I will generally consider the 5 films that have corresponding director nominations will seem like "the real nominees" and if an odd-ball like District 9 makes the list, I will consider it a fluke of the 10 nominee situation.

So Here are My Predictions. And I'm Breaking them up in to two group of 5...no matter how uncool that is.

Best Picture Nominee Predictions - The Next 5

An Education
Crazy Heart
Invictus
A Serious Man
Up

Easily Could Slip into the Mix - 11-15

District 9
Julie & Julia
The Messenger
Nine
Star Trek

Because there's 10, let's not count out... 16-20

(500) Days of Summer
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Last Station
A Single Man
The White Ribbon

My unique pick: Crazy Heart is probably unconventional to be included in the Top 10, but I kind of feel like as a late entry it's picking up steam.

My unique exclusion: For some reason it seems like District 9 is supposed to get nominated. It could, but it seems so un-Oscar-like I have a really hard time including it.

My hope: My hope is that An Education is really in that top group and is accompanied by a Best Director nominations.

I think Crazy Heart could make it, but it seems Jeff Bridges is getting most of the attention.
