timthumb.phpThe Academy Awards commonly referred to as the Oscars is the grandest culmination of the movie industry to honor the hard work of film makers.

Movie freaks like me are far more excited to know who will bring home the statuettes. :)

The list of nominees for the Best Motion Picture for this year’s Oscars are great films. Inception being one and The Social Network as a good competitor in this race, what more could you ask for? To complete the line up of this spectacular movies, it  includes 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, True Grit and Winter’s Bone.


I was a bit surprised that the brilliant Christopher Nolan was not nominated for Best Director. In my opinion, he should have been part of the list.

Natalie Portman having won several awards for her acting prowess in the Black Swan, I think is a sure win while for the Best Actor category, Colin Firth portraying as King George VI of Britain in The King’s Speech, has all the possibility to claim the award on stage. What makes me happy is that my favorite actor, James Franco is also a nominee, who by the way, will host this year’s event together with Anne Hathaway. Being a versatile actor, he is slowly climbing up the ladder to be part of the caliber actors in Hollywood. Just saying.

Who do you think are the big winners this year?

The truth be revealed on February 27th, 2011.
