Therefore, this post will cover 2013 Oscar prediction about top five promising winner in 2013 Oscar. Though movies like The Avengers are of great commercial successes, they are not likely to be enlisted as Oscar winners.
5. The Hobbits: An Unexpected Journey

4. Life of Pi
Most movies fail to meet the artistic appetites of Academy Awards judges, but Life of Pi is not one of them. It takes Ang Lee, a master of artistic movie, over four years to carry the story about the young boy and the tiger to the screen. Less profitable than The Avengers as it is, Life of Pi is definitely more competitive in 2013 Oscar Academy. It is not an easy task to make good artistic movie, it is even harder to make the artistic movie innovative and well-accepted. Besides that, Life of Pi is also a commercial success in the market. Based on all those factors, this movie is listed as a promising winner in 2013 Oscar Academy. In the recent Oscar 2013 prediction, Life of Pi is a powerful competitor for four to five Academy Awards involving music and visual feast.
3. The Dark Knight Rises
As best as well as the last Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises has provided a perfect ending to Batman movie series. Creative in story design, excellent in fighting action, profound in meaning and surprising in ending, The Dark Knight rises seems to be a born Oscar winner. After finishing his last mission in the evil city, Batman will certainly be awarded with Oscar Statuettes. With his genius, Christophe Nolan has sent his Batman trilogy to the altar. Therefore, Nolan is a potential winner for Academy Awards for Best Director. Besides that, the perfect sound effects of this promising winner in Oscar 2013 may bring The Dark Knight Rises Academy Awards for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing.
No one can or dare exclude the movies made by Steven Spielberg from the list of promising Oscar winners.
