25 Oscar Nominees Who Should Win This Year ...


True, there are only 24 categories, but I’m going to create my own “Biggest Snub” nominee at the end just to fully feel like I’ve said my peace. Just like every other year the top critics make their predictions for the year’s biggest wins, snubs, and dark horse candidates, and I’m no different. Let the surmising begin!

• “Black Swan” Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver and Scott Franklin, Producers

• “The Fighter” David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Mark Wahlberg, Producers

• “Inception” Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, Producers

• “The Kids Are All Right” Gary Gilbert, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte and Celine Rattray, Producers

• “The King's Speech” Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, Producers

• “127 Hours” Christian Colson, Danny Boyle and John Smithson, Producers

My money is on “The Social Network” because it’s one of those rare commercial and critical successes that actually lives up to the hype, plus everyone knows the academy loves director David Fincher. “The King’s Speech” could upset since it’s one of those boring looking dramas that no one went to see, and we know the academy loves that too.
