Everything You Wanted To Know About Every Single Best Picture Nominee (But Were Afraid To Ask)

I’ve seen all of these except 127 Hours, The Fighter, The Kids Are Alright, and The Social Network. Hopefully I can knock the latter two out through netflix in the next week, and might go see 127 Hours and The Fighter if they’re still in theaters as I’m really looking forward to them.
As for my favorite, it is EXTREMELY tough this year. I really loved Inception and True Grit for the plots, acting, comedy, action, dialog, settings, just everything. Black Swan was simply beautiful with a performance of a lifetime given by Miss Portman. I respect The King’s Speech for the acting and the immersion into the period. I thought there was good acting and a real sense of setting in Winter’s Bone, although the plot was sort of lacking. Toy Story 3 was Toy Story 3, genius and heart-string pulling.
What will probably win? I think King’s Speech. It just feels like an Academy Award winning film when you’re watching it. Destined to be a classic and all that jazz. Black Swan, The Fighter, and The Social Network are probably the closest contenders (in the academy’s collective eyes.) Toy Story will get snubbed for the 3rd and final time, but children will be watching those movies for hundreds of years to come, which is a win in its own right.
Conclusion: Great year for movies, of which I hope the trend will continue in 2011.
