    I've seen most of them. Haven't seen Toy Story or the Kids Are All Right. Thought True Grit and 127 hours were dire. The Kings Speech was boring as well.

    Would love to see Toy Story 3 or Inception win.

    Haven't seen The Fighter, Kids are all right, Winters Bone and True Grit yet, but out of the others, I think The Kings Speech was probably the best.

    Don't think Toy Story should be up for it. There is a separate category for animation, which it is up for. It's going to win that. Foreign language ones aren't up for best motion picture.

    The fighter was my favourite-also liked the kings speech. Black swan was a load of old twaddle imho but it will probably be either social network or black swan for the oscar. I predict natalie portman will win best actress and colin firth best actor.

    Inception was brilliant but just cant see it being an oscar winner.As for the kids are alright being nominated-someone is clearly having a giraffe!

    Foreign language film could be up for best picture if they wanted to nominate it. Foreign Language category is just made up of movies put forward by their respective countries.

    Toy Story 3 is easily deserving of being in that category. Best animation category is a recent thing and it would be unfair to a movie that transcends mere "animated movie" status to not be given a shot at best pcture.

    I really liked the Kids are Alright, don't think it would be nominated if they hadn't expanded the list from 5 to 10.

    I predict King's Speech will sweep the board, not seen it yet though.

    Whilst I completely agree with you MC I don't think Toy Story will win, they have to maintain some sort of 'elitism', which alienates a large portion of the public.

    I want to see the fighter and 127 hours, but I think Inception should win, it truly was amazing.

    I haven't seen any of them!

    inception should win best pic imo...however out of the rest of them winters bone stands out for me.

    Me neither! X)

    I would be amazed if Inception didnt win. A truly amazing film which sits between arthouse and blockbuster perfectly. I also liked social network and the fighter. Black swan and 127 hours were ok but overhyped. True grit i like but don't know why its on this list. Toy story again shouldnt be here but a good film.

    Inception won't win. Too sci-fi-y for the oscars. Gave up on True Grit after half an hour.
