2011 OSCAR BALLOTon February 24, 2011 at 1:40 pm
As I posted yesterday on the Theater Hopper Facebook page, I kind of keep forgetting that the Oscars are this Sunday. I don't know why I'm not more excited about them. I guess because the field of nominations this year feels so... safe.
In my head, it's between The King's Speech and The Social Network to walk away with the big prizes Sunday night. It all depends on whether or not Academy voters buy the hype behind The Social Network being the "first important film of this generation." Considering the voters tend to skew older and that they value more traditional forms of entertainment, my money is on The King's Speech winning them over.
At any rate, here's my 2011 Oscar ballot - complete with who I think WILL will and who I think SHOULD win.
What do you think? Am I way off base with my predictions? Who do you think will walk away with Top Honors from this year's Academy awards? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
