Why Not? Oscar Best Picture Predictions

Will there be five nominees? Will there be 10? Or more likely, something in between based on the rule we saw go into effect with last year's ceremony (5-10 nominees, nominees above 6 occur if the film receives more than 5% first-place votes on academy ballots). most cases, sight unseen - with buzz and momentum in flux every week - here's some early predictions, because...predictions are fun and some people are into that.
Argo; John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Ben Affleck
Here's my ranked predicted nominees (I'm guessing 6):

1. Argo
2. Lincoln
3. Silver Linings Playbook
4. The Master
5. Promised Land
6. Life of Pi

But if other's jump in here's the next group of nominees (7-10):

7. Les Miserables
8. Flight
9. Beasts of the Southern Wild
10. Django Unchained

And here's how I see the rest of the field stacking up with spots to steal (11-25):

11. Anna Karenina
12. Zero Dark Thirty
13. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
14. Amour
15. Trouble With the Curve
16. Killing Them Softly
17. Hitchcock
18. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
19. Cloud Atlas
21. Hyde Park on Hudson
22. The Impossible
23. The Sessions
24. Moonrise Kingdom
25. The Dark Knight Rises
