The Oscars nominations came out earlier this week, and this year I can say that I've at least heard of all the films up for Best Picture.

There are nine movies in that category:

• "Hugo"

• "The Artist"

• "Moneyball"

• "The Help"

• "The Descendants"

• "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"

• "The Tree of Life"

• "Midnight in Paris"

• "War Horse"

I've never seen all the nominees in any given year, although I came close in 1989 with four out of a mere five nominees: "Driving Miss Daisy," "Born on the Fourth of July," "Dead Poets Society" and "Field of Dreams." I didn't see (and still haven't seen) "My Left Foot."

Which of this year's field have you seen, and what are your predictions for Oscar night?
