Our Oscar Picks

Who will be the Oscar winners…
and the Oscar losers?

Oscar night is upon us, at long last! Here are the picks from our regular contributors. Our writers are all making their selections, and we’ll see who the most prolific prognosticator is… and who isn’t. Click here to see the full nominee list. We’re only picking the main categories. I mean, who really gives a crap about art direction awards? Well, we do, but we won’t bore you with that. The Oscars are Sunday at 8 p.m. east coast time on ABC. The majority are picking “The King’s Speech” for best picture, but after that, it’s a jumble.

  1. I think Lauren is right.

  2. I’m the only one, aye? Hmm.

  3. Pretty much a lanslide for The Kings Speech in this camp then?

    I really must see it…. But Firth just grates me, I dont know why.

    I have him in the same drawer as Hugh Grant and Keria Knightley.

    Hmmm must try and get over it and watch the “Best Film” of the year.

    Thanks guys for yet another giggler!

    *EDIT* I know why I dislike him….My Mum fancies him….Calling Dr Freud!!!

  4. Hey Custard,

    These aren’t our favorite movies. These are just our picks for best picture. I think Black Swan was, by far, the best movie of the year. Inception was excellent, too. Pretty much, I liked King’s Speech a lot, but it doesn’t deserve best picture.
