I still haven't seen all the movies yet, but of the ones that I have seen, I agree with most of your choices.

Collin Firth was FANTASTIC in The King's Speech.
Natalie Portmas for best actress.
Yes, for Christian Bale.
Hailee Steinfeld (but I need to see Animal Kingdom)
Toy Story 3 for Animated Film.

This is where we differ. I thought Toy Story 3 was really great, and I'm happy to see it nominated for best picture. I've only seen 8 of the ten for this category. My two favorites so far are Black Swan and The King's Speech.

After I've seen The Social Network, I'll let you know how I feel about best director.

Good calls...LOVE the Oscars!
