Oscars: What Should Win Best Picture? — POLL

Best Pictures Oscars 2013

As much fun as the Oscars are — and for those catching movies for the past year, it’s something of a pop culture Super Bowl — Hollywood’s biggest night doesn’t always speak to the audiences’ opinions. Behind-the-scenes politics, industry friendships, and a push to bestow up-and-comers with awards all play a part in who walks away with gold statues. “Best” may not really be the best in the end.

Vote in our poll and then check out some of our Oscar coverage highlights from the whirlwind award season.
