Right now is the juicy moment when we can look at 25 contenders for Best Picture. From "The Dark Knight Rises" to "The Beasts of the Southern Wild," from "Argo" to "Amour," the movies range from epic to intimate, from comedy to tragedy. Between today, when there's so much promise and potential, and Sunday, February 24th, when we hear the phrase "and the Oscar goes to…" at the 85th Academy Awards, the group will narrow to a tightly competitive race. This is just the beginning of Yahoo! Movies' coverage of The Contenders, and we hope you enter into the spirit of the race, defending your favorites, and pulling down all false idols that get in their way. We hope you'll have as much fun as we do discussing the movies that we love, and those we love to hate. Like Bilbo Baggins of "The Hobbit," a potential contender, we're off on an Incredible (if not quite unexpected) Journey. Where will it lead?
