I'll kick things off -

Best Actor - Colin Firth.

Best Supporting Actor - I actually haven't seen several of these films - eeeek . . . after seeing SO many films this year.

Best Actress - Natalie Portman was spectacular in Black Swan. Gotta love her.

Best Supporting Actress - Though I seemed to have missed a few of these as well - Hailee Steinfeld was simply amazing in "True Grit!"

Animated. TOY STORY 3 !!!!!

Art Direction - I could just close my eyes and point - they were ALL such great films - and had such a clear vision.

Cinematography - Agin with another wealth of choices, but maybe "Black Swan?"

Costume Design - "I Am Love" (which I actually wish was up for a 'best picture' oscar as well!)

Director - Either "Black Swan" or "Social Network." Both were incredibly complicated stories -

Best Picture - Lots of favourites here - "Black Swan," "The King' Speech," "The Social Network," and "True Grit."

Can't wait to see the show!

Colin Firth
Geoffrey Rush
Natalie Portman
The Social Network
and then...
I am Love
I am Love
I am love should have been the best foreign (not foreign for me) language film.

The King's Speech.
Every time it's nominated.
Brilliant film.

And I do agree about I Am Love. It should have been included. It was wonderful!
