Film critics, we're often told, don't vote for the Oscars
-- but if they did, here's what at least three of their nomination ballots might look like. We listed our top five choices for best director, actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, original/adapted screenplay and cinematography. For best picture, we allowed ourselves 10 choices, based on the unlikely but theoretically possible outcome of 10 nominees in that category.
"12 Years a Slave"
"Dallas Buyers Club"
"Inside Llewyn Davis"
"Short Term 12"
"Stories We Tell"
Joel and Ethan Coen
, "Inside Llewyn Davis"
Joachim Lafosse, "Our Children"
