    This is like the worst list of oscar nominees I've ever seen in my short life. Hopefully 2012 is better.

    Inception was alright, that's about it.

    +1 to Inception. Amazing film from my favorite director.

    Not as much as the girl in True Grit. Although she wasn't as good as Portman and wouldn't have won, she didn't deserve to be lobbed into the supporting category.

    King's Speech will do well, haven't seen it myself but it got a lot of awards.

    Hope 127 Hours gets a few, loved it.

    Sadly, I expect The Social Network to make a sweep because it's about Mark Zuckerberg, everybody's favorite entrepreneur. Which is a shame, considering Black Swan was better on all counts other than perhaps writing.

    Oh, and why so many Inception votes? This isn't a "want" poll.

    The only two films on that poll I have actually seen are Inception and True Grit. Of the two, True Grit was the better movie (although I did enjoy Inception). I have mild interest in seeing Black Swan, The Social Network, and The Fighter... but can easily wait for Netflix.

    Either The Social Network or The King's Speech will have a big, 6+ award sweep, depending on which one has the most buzz when the votes are made. It's more common than not that there'll be one big winner rather than two or three sharing a few between them.

    Some of nailed-on categories (ie, I'll eat my shoes if they don't end up like this)
    Best actor: Colin Firth - Franco was great but has no hope against Firth on this occasion
    Best actress: Natalie Portman - self explanatory
    Best adapted screenplay: Aaron Sorkin for The Social Network - again, nobody close to him in the category
    Best animated feature: Toy Story 3
    Directing: David Fincher - even if The Social Network doesn't win loads, Fincher has this in the bag
    Costumes: The King's Speech - period dramas about monarchs always win this

    Given those two choices, I hope The King's Speech gets the nod. Not that I dislike The Social Network, I just feel it's gotten a little over-hyped. It's a good flick, but it doesn't stand up well next to other films. It's also something that will be very dated in 10 years. Best picture should go to a film achievement and not a story about an internet fad that is in it's twilight.

    Have you seen The Social Network? It's a character study, not a film about Facebook. It'll be as relevant in 100 years as it is now.

    Black Swan should win best picture, but that fucking social network will probably snatch it so the academy feels it's going with its time.

    I have, and I don't really buy that. He's an important person now, but in 10-15 years, who cares?
