2011 Oscar Picks -- Some tough choices this year


My good friend and I always have a nice faceoff every year over the Oscars.
My picks are in black, and his are in yellow.
Here are my picks:

Live Action Short Film: The Confession (didn't see it, just a guess)
Foreign Language Film: Outside the Law (Hors-la-loi) (didn't see it, just a guess)
Makeup: The Wolfman (didn't see it, just a guess)
Documentary Feature: Exit through the Gift Shop
Documentary Short Strangers No More (just a guess, didn't see it)
Art Direction: The King's Speech
Makeup: The Wolfman (didn't see it, just a guess)
Original Score: Inception. My man Hans Zimmer!!
Animated Short Film: Day & Night
Film Editing: The Social Network
Costume Design: The King's Speech
Cinematography: Black Swan
Sound Editing: Inception
Sound Mixing: Inception
Visual Effects: Inception
Animated Feature: Toy Story 3
Adapted Screenplay: The Social Network
Original Screenplay: The Fighter
Directing: The Social Network
Leading Actor: Colin Firth in "The Kind's Speech"
Supporting Actor: Christian Bale in "The Fighter"
Leading Actress: Natalie Portman in "Black Swan"
Supporting Actress: Hailee Steinfeld in "True Grit"
Best Picture: The Social Network

We have some $ on it, so we take this very seriously. I had a hard time choosing winners this year. I was torn on many of the categories. I'm a little bummed that I didn't get to see all the best picture nominations, missed 127 hours, The Kids Are All Right, and Winters Bone.
But I'm rootin for Social Network.
Lets see how this year pans out.
