 Sensing a big race between Inception, True Grit, The Kings Speech and Black Swan.

I think I am actually looking forward to this years the movies were great and tough to pick from.

Wiseguy 1/25/2011 6:53:01 AM

Having not seen Black Swan yet my guess would be The King's Speech for Best Picture, a tremendous film full of great performances IMO, I'll be rooting for True Grit though

Fincher has gotten so much hype and kudos for SN that I can't see him losing Best Director

I'm not a huge Christian Bale fan but I must admit he was terrific in The Fighter but Geoffrey Rush was too in TKS

I'm rooting for True Grit up and down wherever they're nominated, I loved the film

djcgmcse 1/25/2011 7:04:16 AM

Yeah hard to pick the winners this year, lots of pretty good films.  Surprised TRON didn't get noticed for the Visual Effects category.

ddiaz28 1/25/2011 7:14:00 AM

As usual there are more best pic noms that I haven't seen than have.  I did see King's Speech with my wife though and loved it.  It was a beautifully made film with outstanding performances.  I hope Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth get the Oscars.  I've gotta catch the other two soon though.  Of course my love for genre films is leaning me to root for Inception although I'm sure it won't win.

Also, Tron should definitely have been in the running for both original score and VFX.  Quite an oversight I think.  Plus I thought the VFX in Alice were horrible.  Or maybe it was just the 3D that was horrible.  And I'm having trouble seeing why Iron Man 2 is up there.  No doubt the effects were sick, I just don't think they wowed me enough.  I hope Inception gets that one at least.  The practical effects they used were incredible.

Social network will get best picture since it won the golden globe...bet on it! Doesnt mean i want it to win just prolly will win.

Jeff Bridges will get best actor

The little girl form true grit will get best supporting actress

Christian Bale will win Best supporting actor

Natalie portman will win best actress

Iron Man 2 will get snubbed for best visual effects and Inception will win it.

Toy Story 3 will get best animated film

Thorn 1/25/2011 8:06:51 AM

I don't care, as long as Black Swan, Inception wins stuff, that Tron Legacy wins sound, and I'd give Barney's Version best makeup (even in my heart I want The Wolfman to win). I really want Inception to win big.

Of course, dear Academy will go with vanilla safe choices by making The Social Network (I know it's supposed to be amazing, I love David Fincher and Trent Reznor, but I just CAN'T watch a movie about facebook) and The King's Speech win everything.

Calibur454 1/25/2011 8:31:04 AM

everyone has missed the fact that toy story three has made history with nominations for best picture and best animate picture. I doubt toy story will winn in both but it would be crazy if it did.

Inception goes to effects

if  how to train dragon wins best animated  toy story 3 will take best picture  . at least thats my gut feeling on it you can bet on that.

best writing ought to go to true grit

the illusionist should have snagged best foriegn film nod

social network will snag most awards with true grit and inception  snagging one here and there

mudduck454 1/25/2011 8:42:48 AM

personally I found toy story 3 a bit bland, and how to train your dragon was better, and summer wars should have been on that list, it is a great film, why does the academy shun great amination. just because it doesnt have studio ghibli name on it, doesnt mean it sucks, then again, I bet earthsea wont be winning any awards....

redhairs99 1/25/2011 9:06:29 AM

Can't believe Nolan didn't get a nod for directing.  All the different elements he had with the film from writing, and directing the actors, making sense of the story and the amazing visual effects and the guy still doesn't get the nod...BS!!

Black Swan is the most over-rated film of the year.  Saw it last weekend and was bored out of my mind.  Sure, Mila Kunis going down on Natalie Portman was cool, but the movie sucked overall.

monkeyfoot 1/25/2011 9:11:05 AM

Uwe Boll snubbed again!
