'Argo' Wins Best Picture


Well that wasn't a huge surprise.

Argo just won Best Picture. It was quite a year for movies, and there was tough competition, but this one was to be expected. PolicyMic culture editor Elena Sheppard totally saw it coming, and now I owe her dessert. Guess I should have known my editor has good instincts! Here are the flicks that Argo just beat out for the Best Picture Oscar: 

Les Miserables


Life of Pi


Beasts of the Southern Wild

Silver Linings Playbook

Django Unchained

Zero Dark Thirty
