Is this a joke about how big a front runner is Colin Firth, or Jesse Eisenberg's curly hair in The Social Network? :D

Did not see any of the Documentary Shorts, Live Action Shorts or Animated Shorts, even though they all played in local theatres last weekend.

There will probably be a lot of repeats in each prediction entry, which is why I think most of us have held off on this kind of thread till now. It's what will, not should win, and that makes for repetitive responses.

Best Picture: The Social Network
ru: The King's Speech
[I'm going slightly out-on-a-limb for this, because I'm hoping the "hipness" factor wins out. I liked The King's Speech but it's not the best of the year.]
possible upset: True Grit

Best Director: David Fincher, The Social Network
ru: Tom Hooper, The King's Speech
[They like Fincher enough to have nominated him before, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was a front-runner in 2008.]
possible upset: The Coen Bros.

Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King's Speech
ru: Jeff Bridges True Grit
[I would be shocked if Firth lost.]
possible upset: James Franco 127 Hours

Best Actress: Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
ru: Natalie Portman, Black Swan
[Small edge to Bening. They nominated her 3 prior times, it includes a hint of what many want to applaud (loving long-term gay union overcoming hurdles) while Portman's movie is dark and divisive.]
possible upset: I could see a surge in support for either Williams or Lawrence, but that's unlikely.

Best Supporting Actor: Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech
ru: Christian Bale, The Fighter
[Tough one. Either they go with the great child-actor- makes-good narrative or they go with a respected former winner in a Best Picture front-runner. I suspect Firth won't be alone with an award at the end of the night.]
possible upset: Ruffalo could do it, and so could Renner if there's held-over love from last year.

Best Supporting Actress: Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
ru: Melissa Leo, The Fighter
[Guess it depends on how early people voted. If enough voted before Leo's infamous campaigning maybe she still wins. But a young actress hasn't grabbed this prize since 1993, and it is the only major place to honor her movie unless they loved True Grit more than we think.]
possible upset: Amy Adams, The Fighter

Best Original Screenplay: Inception
ru: The King's Speech
[Could go either way on this one. Cleverness vs. sentiment. Hoping for Nolan, and think by a hair he'll win, but I may be wrong.]
possible upset: Another Year or The Kids Are All Right

Best Adapted Screenplay: The Social Network
ru: True Grit
possible upset: Winter's Bone

Best Art Direction: Inception
ru: Alice in Wonderland
possible upset: The King's Speech

Best Cinematography: True Grit
ru: The Social Network
possible upset: Black Swan

Best Costume Design: The King's Speech
ru: Alice in Wonderland
possible upset: The Tempest

Best Film Editing: The Social Network
ru: 127 Hours
possible upset: The King's Speech

Best Animated Feature: Toy Story 3
ru: How to Train Your Dragon
possible upset: The Illusionist

Best Documentary Feature: Exit Through the Gift Shop
ru: Inside Job
possible upset: Gasland

Best Foreign Language Film: In a Better World
ru: Biutiful
possible upset: Dogtooth

Best Makeup: The Wolfman
ru: The Way Back
possible upset: Barney's Version

Best Original Score: The King's Speech
ru: The Social Network
possible upset: How to Train Your Dragon

Best Song: Toy Story 3
ru: Tangled
possible upset: Country Strong

Best Sound Editing: Inception
ru: True Grit
possible upset: Unstoppable

Best Sound Mixing: Inception
ru: The King's Speech
possible upset: Salt

Best Visual Effects: Inception
ru: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I
possible upset: Hereafter

Best Animated Short: Day & Night
ru: The Gruffalo
possible upset: Let's Pollute

Best Documentary Short: Killing in the Name
ru: Strangers No More
possible upset: The Warriors of Quigang

Best Live-Action Short: Na Wewe
ru: Wish 143
possible upset: The Confession


I know some will think I'm crazy for saying The King's Speech will only win a few prizes, but somehow I don't think the Academy is quite as sentimental as they used to be. Maybe it's wishful thinking.
