The King’s Speech may sweep the Oscars at the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday night. I think that would be a big shame, and all my may go-to’s reflect that possibility. Please note that I make a conscious distinction below among may, could and should following each of my predictions.

  • Picture: The King’s Speech (should go to The Fighter)
  • Actress: Natalie Portman for Black Swan (could go to Annette  Benning for The Kids Are All Right)
  • Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo for The Fighter (may go to Helena Bonham Carter for The King’s Speech)
  • Actor: Colin Firth for The King’s Speech (should tie with Javier Bardem for Biutiful)
  • Supporting Actor: Christian Bale for The Fighter (may go to Geoffrey Rush for The King’s Speech )
  • Director: David Fincher for The Social Network (may go to Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech)
  • Documentary Feature: Restropo (one of the best films of the year!)
  • Animated Feature: Toy Story 3
  • Foreign Language Film: Biutiful
  • Cinematography: True Grit
  • Visual Effects: Inception
  • Costume Design: I Am Love
