The Oscars: 10 Ways to Win


9. Ditch 3D. Yes, we just waxed poetic about "Hugo," and yes, it's also 3D. But there's a limit for how much love the Academy can give the new technology.

And they shunned Steven Spielberg's "Adventures of Tintin." 3D does not a surefire Oscar favorite make.

10. Put a best seller on the big screen. If there's one tried and true way to win an Oscar, it's this. "Gone with the Wind." "The Blind Side" "Q&A" (better known by its movie name, "Slumdog Millionaire.") This year, the maxim is "The Help's" to prove wrong.
