As noted on the Facebooks: I am guessing 12 Years a Slave will take the best picture statue (and deserves it,) but I would be fine with Her getting it instead. I also highly recommend Philomena to, well, everyone, and Gravity completely lived up to the hype. I actually recommend all four of those to anyone. As M. noted elsewhere, American Hustle was... not good. Very disappointing given the source material and the cast.
