    I think that's the same 10 everybody has been saying for the last month.

    I've seen all but The King's Speech.

    I'll take The Social Network against the field.

    Social Network by a nose over the King's Speech. It's not the better film, but 1) it's American and 2) it's contemporary.

    "Inception?" I just wish John McEnroe was an analyst on one of the networks this morning.
    He won't win, but as a Deadwood hooplehead, I am thrilled to see John Hawkes get nominated. Hope he gets to find out how Trixie celebrates.

    Inception is one polarizing movie.

    I loved it.

    The only one I've seen is The King's Speech. Amazing. Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth are awesome. Firth's performance reminded me of Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot. Performance of a career, in other words. Understated, regal, seething with anger and doubt. Beautiful. Yeah, I adore Colin Firth.

    Until I see some of the other flicks, I can't say it is Best Movie material. Best supporting actor and actor material? Definitely.

    Whew. Bad year for high-profile films. Good year foreign. Bad year stateside.

    My hunch is, by the time it all settles down, True Grit wins. Rarely is it about quality, although that film was perfectly decent in my book. I'd watch it again in several years.

    Seen every one except King's Speech, which I'm supposed to see tonight.

    Black Swan is my vote.

    If you believe that, put money on it in Vegas. You'll get a great payout if you're right.
