I thought this would be a weak years for Best Picture and this list of nominees proves it. Is anyone going to remember these films in a few years?
This is hard to judge in advance, but I think there are four that will be remembered. The Tree of Life, Hugo and The Descendants are well-regarded films by significant auteurs whose bodies of work will always be examined. The Artist is (at present) by a less known director, but assuming it wins as it currently looks to, being the Best Picture will keep it in the conversation (besides which, it has some distinguishing features apart from that).
