Best Foreign Film: At this point, a win for anything but "Amour" would be the biggest upset at this year's awards. The film, Austria's official nomination, is up for four other awards – Picture, Director and Original Screenplay (Michael Haneke) and Actress (Emmanuelle Riva). At 85, Riva actually is the oldest nominee in her category's history. Had "The Intouchables" (France) been nominated, it could have given "Amour" a run for its money, especially since surprises are common here. If you're picking a spoiler, consider "Kon Tiki" (Norway), but it's unlikely.
