oscar hopes with an hour and fifteen mintues to spare

I was pretty rushed with this, so I'm only going to focus on what I want to win, not what will actually win. It was still pretty hard to figure that out though, since there were only a few Oscar-contender movies that I actually saw this past year (Little Miss Sunshine, Dreamgirls, The Queen, Monster House, Pirates of the Caribean: Dead Man's Chest, The Prestige, The Illusionist, Marie Antoinette, An Inconvenient Truth, Superman Returns). As a result, I have to go a lot on what trusted friends and critics have said about these films (and sometimes just titles alone).
