The only movie I've seen on the Best Picture nominations list is Toy Story 3. However, I'm looking forward to seeing True Grit the most of the ones I haven't seen (with Black Swan and 127 Hours coming in second and third), so I'm going to root for that one.

Definitely rooting for Natalie Portman to win Best Actress. :love:

After finally getting to see True Grit earlier this week, followed by The King's Speech tonight, I've seen 7 of the 10 Best Picture nominees so far.
I can still see The Kids Are Alright and Winter's Bone which are both on DVD. 127 Hours is the only one I might miss, as I'm not sure if its still playing in theaters near me.

Anyway, here is what I think will win so far:

BEST PICTURE:
The King's Speech - Not because its the best film (still a great movie), but because this is the type of film usually picked by the Academy. My personal pick would be The Social Network.
Really tough one this year. Black Swan, True Grit & Inception would also be great choices.

DIRECTING:
Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan - Robbed of a nomination two years ago for The Wrestler, he should get it this time, but Fincher and Hooper could also easily get the win.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE:
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech - Bridges won't win two years in a row and Eisenberg was great in The Social Network, but Firth deserves it.

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE:
Natalie Portman, Black Swan - No question, hands down the best performance of the year. Reading the nominees is just a formality.

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE:
Christian Bale, The Fighter - Rush was great, but Bale was better.

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE:
Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit - Although Leo or Adams are the safer choices, I felt Steinfeld delivered big time in what should have been a Lead Role nomination (even though she wouldn't have a chance in hell against Portman).

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:
The Social Network (Sony Pictures Releasing), Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:
Inception (Warner Bros.), Written by Christopher Nolan

ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
Toy Story 3

CINEMATOGRAPHY:
Inception (Warner Bros.) Wally Pfister

FILM EDITING:
The Social Network - Inception deserves it, but sadly it wasn't nominated.

DOCUMENTARY:
Exit Through The Gift Shop(Producers Distribution Agency) Banksy and Jaimie D’Cruz A Paranoid Pictures Production - Although Retrepo was better, Gift Shop is not a lock due to questions about the film's authenticity.

ORIGINAL SCORE:
The Social Network (Sony Pictures Releasing) Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

VISUAL EFFECTS:
Inception

ART DIRECTION:
Inception

COSTUME DESIGN:
True Grit (Paramount) Mary Zophres

Any discussion on this year's 84th ceremony? Weird Al, do a parody of "Crimson and Clover" to "Hugo and The Artist," over and over...

Do they still televise this thing?

I was watching the news this morning and they had video clips from the ceremony, which leads me to believe it was televised somewhere!?!?!

Can anyone confirm?

I didn't even realize this was on last night. I don't go to the movies very often any more (example: last time in a theater was to see "LOTR: Return of the King"). I'm tired of self-serving award programs and don't have much respect for "celebrities" or porfessional athletes as it is.

This was the first time I'd ever seen it from the opening seconds. I usually forget and catch it a few award presentations in.

I have not watched the Academy Awards (or any other award show) since I was a kid stuck at home without cable television.

I also agree with the whole self-serving aspect.
