18 Movies I Bet Will Get an Oscar Nod

Ashton-Kutcher-Jobs-movie-poster-teaserThe buzzy “Jobs” opens this weekend and I have a feeling this movie is gonna go all the way. What I mean by that is, this movie will probably get an Oscar nomination. It was like The Social Network. It wasn’t the greatest movie ever, but as they say, the Academy loves topical, era relevant movies. Below you have a list of future releases that I think will also go all the way to the red carpet of the Oscars awards ceremony.
