Who do you want to win best picture in Sunday's Oscars? More importantly, which Academy Award-nominated movie would you most likely see with a date? conducted a survey among its members, asking them which of the Oscar-nominated picks was most date-worthy, and the number one pick by far with over 31% of the vote was American Hustle - with an all-star cast including Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner. Who wouldn't want to see them together?

Next up was The Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio at almost 15.5%. Although Her could be a little bit of a physical buzzkill on a date, since the main character falls in love with an operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), it pulled in almost 12% of the votes.

Which movie didn't make the cut? Apparently Judi Dench's much-acclaimed Philomena was not considered a good choice for a date at all, coming in last with 0% of the votes!

American Hustle – 31.74%

The Wolf of Wall Street – 15.49%

Gravity – 13%

Her – 11.66%
