So this years nomination sees the academy falling back on the usual, safer kind of films in contrast to last years nominations which saw films like District 9, Ajami and The Secret of Kells being nominated. Here we have our same old predictables. The period drama, the epic western, the box office champ, the boxer movie, the indie gem and Pixar.

The King's Speech leads the nominees with a staggering 12 nominations while True Grit trails with 10 nominations. Inception and David Fincher's Golden Globe winning Social Network holds 8 nods while The Fighter earned 7 nominations. Character pieces like 127 Hours and Black Swan have 6 and 5 nominations each.

First off, I predict the Oscars will be fair game season this year. With all these films performing equally well with each other, and the critics awards being split between many of these films.. it's easy to say that all these films are going to walk away with wins come March. No film is going to pull a LOTR and sweep everything, all films are going to take home something.

My money is on The Social Network to win Best Picture, if not that then it should be The King's Speech. While I don't agree with The King's Speech, it's sheer number of nods is hard to overlook. David Fincher for Best Director. Colin Firth for Best Actor. Natalie Portman for Best Actress. Christian Bale for Best Supporting Actor. Either Melissa Leo or Hailee Steinfeld for Best Supporting Actress.

But for God sakes academy. No nomination for Chris Nolan again?? A fuuuuuuuuuk you.
