Will Bond Get An Oscar?

As I reflect on the movies of 2012, I kind of have to wonder, what's Oscar worthy

James Bond films have been nominated for Oscars seven times, only winning twice; Goldfinger in 1964 for Best Sound Effects and Thunderball in 1965 for Best Visual Effect.

Bond films have never been nominated in the Best Picture category, but I think after this year, that might change.
Can you guess what two original Bond songs have been nominated, but never won?  There are three....

1973's Live & Let Die.  1977's The Spy Who Loved Me & 1981's For Your Eyes Only.

Since the Academy is not going into nominations with a set number of nominees in mind, Skyfall will fall. A couple other more artsy dramas will find their places. Lincoln, Beasts, Django, Argo, Les Miz, Zero. And then maybe Moonrise, Pi, and Linings. Without knowing how many nominees there could be, it will be a guess. And Skyfall does have some Oscar darlings in it.
