question of the day: Who will the Oscar Best Director nominees be?

Over the past month, the members of the Online Film Critics Society have been guessing who will be nominated in a handful of major Academy Award categories. With the actual nominees to be announced on February 2, we’re down to our last speculations: Best Director. Here’s who we picked (in alphabetical order; links go to my reviews):

Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker
James Cameron, Avatar
Lee Daniels, Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire
Jason Reitman, Up in the Air
Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds
Your turn: Do you agree with the OFCS critics? Did we miss a filmmaker who’s certain to be nominated? Did we predict a nomination that’s ridiculous? Who will the Best Director nominees be?
