Oscar Nominations: Who Will Win and Take Oscar Home?

2011 Oscar Nominations
2011 Oscar Nominations

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning.  Who will win?

The Golden Globes aren’t always a predictor of Oscar gold but the Globes are still the best predictor of what’s to come for the most prestigious awards in Hollywood.

Up for best picture is The Social Network which won the Golden Globe for Best Drama.  Toy Story 3 won for best animated film at the Golden Globes.  Will it win best Oscar?  Very unlikely.  I think it’s either going to be The Social Network or Black Swan.

Colin Firth is nominated for best actor.  He won the Golden Globe for his role in The King’s Speech.  Will he take the Oscar home too? 

Paul Giamatti was not nominated for his role in Barney’s Version, although he won a Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy.

Mama-to-be Natalie Portman was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Black Swan; she won the Golden Globe for best actress, drama.  But Annette Bening won for The Kids Are All Right for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy.   The Oscars doesn’t have two categories.  So who will take it home?

I also think it’ll be a tight race for best director between Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan and David Fincher for The Social Network.  But Fincher won the Golden Globe… will he also take home Oscar?

What do you think?
