1. A Separation is likely to win for best foreign film and my partner's Persian.
2. My Week with Marilyn, Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh - need I say more?
3. Midnight in Paris - I've fought against seeing it (I have a Woody Allen aversion) but it's nominated in so many categories, I love Paris, and I'm dying to see Kathy Bates as Gertrude Stein.
4. Albert Nobbs - I just want to see another female actor over 50 other than Meryl Streep get the great role she deserves. And I love Glenn Close and the photos I've seen of her in this role.
5. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - it's all about Gary Oldman!
