    I saw The King’s Speech and said ‘this one will win’. Then I saw The Social Network, and now I’m torn between those two movies winning big.
    I usually don’t watch the show, but tune in early to see the dresses, then on Monday night ET recaps it all, but I would like to see Christian Bale get his long overdue reward for being such an amazing actor.

    • I haven’t seen The King’s Speech yet. It’s been next on my list for months, but I haven’t gotten out to see it. I did see The Social Network. It was really well done, but from the trailers I know The King’s Speech is my kind of movie, and I’m pulling for it since True Grit has little chance.

    I’ve only watched Inception. But I’m guessing The King’s Speech is going to have a lot of wins and that Portman will win for the Black Swan.

    I saw The Fighter and if Christian Bale doesn’t win best supporting actor, something is horribly wrong with the awards system :o0
    Also, I think that Melissa Leo has a really good chance of winning best supporting actress in The Fighter.
    Saw True Grit and Social Network. Loved them both.
    I’m betting on The King’s Speech as best movie, though, just because the buzz was so great.
    As for best actor … It would be a long shot if Jeff Bridges could win back to back Oscars but he’s sure in the running. I’m thinking Colin Firth will win.
    Best actress – Natalie Portman is getting a lot of buzz for The Black Swan but Annette Benning could surprise everyone :o0
    But what do I know????

  4. Jeremy Renner was terrific in The Town, which was excellent, and he was also incredible in The Hurt Locker. I haven’t seen The Fighter yet, but I agree that Christian Bale is overdue.

    Hailee Steinfeld is amazing in True Grit. She’s so young, and for her own sake should probably pay some dues before Oscar comes along, but her performance was Oscar worthy. I thought it was a leading role, but maybe they put her in best supporting because she’s so young.

  5. Cindy, I thought Jeff Bridges was even better in True Grit than he was in Crazy Heart, but maybe that’s because he brought such depth to ol’ Rooster.

    I haven’t seen The Swan, but I do think Annette Bening is overdue, and she was wonderful in The Kids Are All Right. Great movie, but not “high concept” like Swan.

    How much do you think that overdue factor influences voters?

    Forgot about Jeremy in The Town. He was great … but my vote is still for Christain Bale :o)
