Argo
Three days from the Oscar nominations, it's great how many races seem wide open. "Argo" has really come on the past few weeks — especially impressive given how long ago it was initially screened.

Rising: "Argo," Ben Affleck, Roger Deakins
Steady as (s)he goes: Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway
Duel: Jessica Chastain vs. Jennifer Lawrence
Sort of a duel: "Amour" vs. "The Intouchables"
Intrigue: Supporting actor, adapted screenplay, original screenplay, animated feature, documentary and more …

And now, the winners and key nominees so far …
