The King’s Speech leads the pack with 12 nominations, including nods for best picture, actor, director, supporting actress and supporting actor. True Grit is next with 10 nominations, and Inception and The Social Network come in next with 8 each. I have to confess, there are many movies on the list of nominees for Best Picture that I haven’t seen this year, but I’m still looking forward to finding out who wins on February 27th!

Who do you think will walk away with the win in each category? Do you think The Social Network will continue its winning streak from the Golden Globes? Or will someone else sneak in and take over?

Let me know your thoughts/predictions in the comments section.
