    It's always pretty tight. Colin Firth should get Best Actor, but you never really know with these things.
    I'd quite like them to shake it up and give Inception the Best Picture, just because it's so different. Can't see it happening though.
    I agree with you on both points
    I do love Colin Firth, I'd like to see him with the Oscar (especially after not getting it last year for what I thought was an incredible performance).

    My predictions:
    The Social Network
    Colin Firth
    Natalie Portman/Annette Bening
    David Fincher
    Christian Bale
    I agree with you here, (especially on Natalie Portman - she's a clear leader in that section imho, but I know others may disagree) but I'm with Student2806 with regards to Inception. I'd love for it to get Best Picture, but I doubt it will.

    Victor Chandler, only place I can see which has the majority of awards and the place for accumulators.

    Although I know very little of betting (I literally only do the Oscars every year :p:) and I know you do more so if you have any tips on betting types or sites I'm all ears. :teeth:
    I've accounts on Betfair and Coral but neither have accumulators available at the moment. I'll keep you informed if this changes.

    I don't think Inception is deserving of Best Picture really. It is a marvellous film but i just don't think it quite makes it.

    Watched Run Lola Run for the first time yesterday - I have to say, it really blew me away! The acting was great, the cinematography was just unbelievable, and the story line was really very interesting it really opens up the whole argument of chance vs. fate...plus her hair was really cool

    On an unrelated note, what do we think of the Oscar nominations?
    Personally, I think that the competition is really tight this year! I can't call it at all. :confused:
    That film is wicked been a while since I watched it though, but I still remember that crazy techno soundtrack . If you like that sort of movie wth chance vs fate I think you'd like Sliding Doors which has gwyneth Paltrow I think...

    Ahh, yes! The soundtrack is immense - it keeps your blood pumping the whole way through!
    Hmm...I've never heard of it - I'll have to give it a watch sometime! Thanks for the recommendation

    It is a great film, but I agree... for me there's just something about it :confused:

    Which film do you think deserves it?

    I've read Anette Benning is likely to receive the Best Actress (her or Portman). I haven't seen The Kids Are All Right yet, what do people think of her nomination?

    It's between the social network or the kings speech.

    I think it'll be the social network though.

    Okay, seen The Fighter now. Very good film, elevated above mediocrity by Christian Bale's performance, I think. If he gets the Oscar, he deserves it. :yy:

    Women; they might as well be another species. I actually bought On the Origin of Species the other day, maybe that will give me some much needed insight.

    It's nothing new. So many sequels have rode the success of the first, and the results are often gruesome.
    What book are you currently reading? I've taken to stalking your reading list because you have such a :coma: taste in literature.

    Those 4 along with Toy Story 3 and The Kings Speech at the Baftas only gets me £10.96 for a £5 bet :nope:

    That's what I think:

    (Original post by Phalanges)
    Right then, let's see if I can be uber-conservative and still make reasonable odds:

    Oscars - Colin Firth (actor), Christian Bale (supporting), David Fincher (director), Biutiful (foreign), Toy Story 3 (animated), Sorkin (adapted screenplay), Inside Job (doc)

    BAFTA - King's Speech (film), Fincher (director), Colin Firth, Natalie Portman (actress), HBC (supporting)

    Goya - Javier Bardem (actor)

    SAG - Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale

    London Critic's Circle - Colin Firth

    Odds of 58.39/1. Not bad considering there's not one choice there I'm not confident of.

    What site are you using? :holmes:

    Aaron Sorkin
    Inside Job (tip from Phalanges)

    All the rest are pretty open.
