| by

When Back9Network asked me to write about this year’s Academy, I was a bit flummoxed. On the weekly sports podcast I co-host, we talk quite a bit of golf but I wasn’t sure how that translated into writing about the Oscars for a golf site.

Then I began thinking about it, and that’s exactly what “Silver Linings Playbook” felt like to me. Clearly writer/director David O’Russell pulled mental illness, the Philadelphia Eagles and ballroom dancing out of his hat – and the result was 2012’s indie darling. Whew! That paragraph was a stretch. Without further adieu, here is a slightly less gimmicky version of this year’s Oscar contenders.
