    Good question, Robert. These are my picks for what should win.

    Here’s what I think will win:

    • Best Picture: either “Inception” or “The King’s Speech”
    • Best Actor: Colin Firth, for “The King’s Speech”; or maybe Jesse Eisenberg for “The Social Network”
    • Best Actress: Annette Bening, for “The Kids Are All Right” (if not Nicole Kidman, for “Rabbit Hole”)
    • Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, for “The Fighter”
    • Best Supporting Actress: Hailee Steinfeld, for “True Grit”
    • Best Film Editing: “Inception”
    • Best Special Effects: “Inception”

    “Inception,” “The King’s Speech,” and “True Grit” will get lots of attention at the Academy Awards event.
