    I hope Inception steals the awards this year. I've been waiting for some time for the best movie of the year to be a Science Fiction movie.

    I'm surprised Inception got so many nominations. Hopefully it wins something.

    Surprised that Tron didn't get nominations for Best Visual Effects or Best Original Score. Glad that Toy Story 3 & True Grit got several nominations & I'll be rooting for both films/the people who worked on them to win something, also nice to see Night & Day get a short film nomination.

    Inception deserves every award it wins. Which will hopefully be every one it's been nominated for. I hope that How To Train Your Dragon wins something as well; that movie was wonderful.

    Disapointed Nolan got screwed from the director's award but still Inception was nominated for pretty much everything else.

    The only one of these I've seen is Toy Story 3, so I hope that wins every award it's nominated for. The overwhelming majority of these, I've never even heard of (nothing new there), but I wouldn't mind seeing "Winter's Bone" win something because the title makes me laugh.

    I disliked the film, largely based upon an aversion to the subject, but I have a feeling that The Social Network will win a few awards. Those awards won't be based upon the film's own merits, but solely because voting for it makes an aging Academy voter feel relevant.

    Vote for Christian Bale.

    Kinda surprised Inception is up for so much.I didn't think it was good enough for best picture.

    I'm pleased for the most part, except for Chris Nolan not getting a best director nomination, and for Hereafter beating out TRON for visual effects (WTF IS THAT?) and also Daft Punk getting the shaft on the original score.

    Would have been nice to see some more love for the Town and Animal Kingdom, but there's only so much room.

    For Best Pic I have to go with Inception. The Fighter and The King's Speech would be okay choices as well. The Social Network didn't hold up on repeat viewings (not that it was bad, just not as good). Still a few I need to see (The Kids are Alright, Black Swan and Winter's Bone).

    Best Actor I have to go with Colin Firth. He was great in The King's Speech.

    Best Actress: I haven't seen any of the movies yet, so I can't comment.

    Best Supporting Actor: Hands down Christian Bale.
    Best Supporting Actress: Amy Adams is my choice, but her costar is also very deserving.

    Animated Feature: Gotta go with How to Train Your Dragon (Should be nominated for best picture instead of TS3 IMO)

    Not going to bother with the more technical awards.

    Urgh, Inception got nominated for way too much stuff. Hopefully it won't sweep.

    Social Network, Black Swan and True Grit should take most of 'em. Haven't seen The Fighter yet though.

    I wish Toy Story 3 would win best picture, but The King's Speech probably will.

    Harry Potter doesn't stand a chance, hope it wins visual effects though.
