2011 Oscar Predictions

the announcement of the Best Picture nominees for 2011

It’s Valentines day, and the Grammy’s have come and gone… Congratulations to all the winners – especially Israel Houghton, Switchfoot, Bebe and Cece Winans, Esperanza Spalding, The Roots and John Legend and Arcade Fire for winning and still being the bastions of good music at the Grammy’s when often glitz and glamour cause actual skill to be overlooked…

Speaking of glitz and glam, there is only one party that ends the awards season with the climax it needs, and that is the Oscars. So without going any further, here’s my picks from the pics of 2010 for the 2011 Academy Awards in the major recognized catagories:

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale for the Fighter

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo for the Fighter

Best Actor: Colin Firth for the Kings Speech

Best Actress: Natalie Portman for Black Swan

Best Animated Film: Toy Story 3

Best Documentary: Exit Through the Gift Shop

Best Director: David Fincher for Social Network

Best Picture: The Social Network

Although my favourite movie of last year would probably be Inception, I’m a little disappointed Christopher Nolan doesn’t get his recognition from the Academy, but this deems the direction of their thinking. I hope there will be a few surprises, but these are my picks from the pics…

What’s your predictions?
