  1. Kevin Matthews says

    Place your bets. Hard to pick between so many potentially great choices.

  2. Miguel Rosa says

    Aw, so many movies I haven’t seen yet – Black Swan, 127 Hours, The King’s Speech, Blue Valentine. It sucks living in Portugal! Sucks!

    The Social Network has it in the bag – I’m guessing Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director and Best Screenplay.

  3. Kevin Matthews says

    Hey Miguel, I haven’t seen any of those ones either. You really think The Social Network has it? I thought that, despite the amazing end result, the theoretically uncinematic nature of the piece would put off the award-givers. Just my view.

  4. Miguel Rosa says

    The Social Network has been sweeping all the awards, so I think it’s a sure winner. These things tend to be pretty predictable, unfortunately.

    Mind you, in my opinion the awards should be evenly distributed between The Ghost Writer and Mysteries of Lisbon. For me those two were the real masterpieces of 2010.
