Best Picture: Wishful Thinking

What else could be a Best Picture nominee? These sound like wishful thinking:

Kelly Reichardt's Meek's Cutoff
The director of River of Grass, Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy is a gifted minimalist who believes that the tiniest detail can open up a universe. Kelly Reichardt has crafted a haunted dream of a movie to get lost in.

Tom McCarthy's Win Win
This movie wins you over, head and heart, without cheating. It's just about perfect.

Joe Wright's Hanna
Out of a script by David Farr and Seth Lochhead, Joe Wright (his Atonement won an Oscar nod for Ronan) carves a surreal fable of blood and regret. Saoirse Ronan is an acting sorceress, and her scenes with the excellent Eric Bana cut bone-deep.
