True but True Grit is the one nominee with the most sweeping vistas plus it's a Best Picture nominee and those almost always have the edge.

As for the race itself, I'm inclined to root for Black Swan because Matthew Libatique is Filipino and I'm obligated to cheer him on but I think this is a three-way race between Inception, The King's Speech and True Grit.

If The King's Speech wins here, I'm expecting it to sweep because the voters clearly LOOOVE the film and will be voting for it everywhere.

I'm predicting True Grit.

I say just give it to Roger Deakins. He's been nominated 9 times and has never won before.

My choice would be Social Network, but I'd have no problem with either True Grit or Inception winning this one.
