Speaking of Cinema's Oscar Picks

If we picked the Oscar winners, we would choose the following people and films to bring home the trophies at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night (March 7).

Best Picture - Inglourious Basterds is a clear favorite at Speaking of Cinema.
Best Director - Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) would have to be involved in some kind of tiebreaker if we picked the Oscar-winner in this category.
Best Original Screenplay - Tarantino (again for Inglourious Basterds) has found himself in another tie, this time with Joel and Ethan Coen (A Serious Man).
Best Adapted Screenplay - Nick Hornby's script for An Education barely edged out Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner's for Up in the Air.
Best Actor - Colin Firth is our unanimous choice for his terrific performance in A Single Man.
Best Actress - Newcomer Carey Mulligan is our choice for An Education. Fellow newcomer Gabourey Sidibe was close behind for her titular performance in Precious.
Best Supporting Actor - Christoph Waltz is another unanimous choice for his portrayal of Col. Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds.
Best Supporting Actress - Mo'Nique is a front-runner on Sunday night and our choice to win for her performance in Precious.
