Oscar Noms Scorecard

Let's see how I stack up...

Best Picture:
The King's Speech
The Social Network
Black Swan
True Grit
127 Hours
Blue Valentine
Toy Story 3
The Kids Are All Right
The Fighter

Missed out Winter's Bone... had a sneaking suspicion that Blue Valentine would be nominated, oh well...

Best Actor:
Colin Firth, The King's Speech
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
James Franco, 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Jeff Bridges, True Grit

Missed out on Javier Bardem in "Biutiful"... coz I was predicting Blue Valentine for Best Picture and Michelle Williams for Best Actress so maybe Ryan Gosling would also get the nomination...

Best Actress:
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter's Bone
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right

I really thought Julianne Moore had a shot at a nomination... but it was Nicole Kidman who got it for Rabbit Hole...

Best Supporting Actor:
Christian Bale, The Fighter
Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech
Andrew Garfield, The Social Network
John Hawkes, Winter's Bone
Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right

Jeremy Renner (The Town) pushed my fave out of the running... dammit...

Best Supporting Actress:
Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Amy Adams, The Fighter
Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
Helena Bonham Carter, The King's Speech
Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

Five for five... yay me!

Best Director:
David Fincher, The Social Network
Christopher Nolan, Inception
Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
Tom Hooper, The King's Speech
David O Russell, The Fighter

True Grit's Coen Brothers upset Inception's Christopher Nolan... sigh...

Hmm... guess I did not predict the Best Animated Picture category... but I would've chosen Tangled over The Illusionist...

Check out this guy's prediction -->

Next question... who do we pick as winners?
