PHOTOS: Other Obviously Outstanding Oscars That Are NOT A Trophy

The favorites are Natalie Portman, for ‘Black Swan,’ ‘King’s Speech,’ and ‘Social Network’ to name a few, but here at GlobalGrind we’ve got our own predictions. We give you Hip-Pop’s Oscar predictions for the 2011 Academy Awards. So check out who we think will win the best picture, who are we riding with to best direction and who will bring home the hardware for supporting actor? We got your covered!





Best Picture

“Black Swan” Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver and Scott Franklin, Producers

“The Fighter” David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Mark Wahlberg, Producers

“Inception” Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, Producers

“The Kids Are All Right” Gary Gilbert, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte and Celine Rattray, Producers

“The King’s Speech” Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, Producers

“127 Hours” Christian Colson, Danny Boyle and John Smithson, Producers

“The Social Network” Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca and Ceán Chaffin, Producers

“Toy Story 3” Darla K. Anderson, Producer

“True Grit” Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, Producers

“Winter’s Bone’ Anne Rosellini and Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Producers

Prediction: With Facebook slowly taking over the world, we simply can’t see how this innovative and brilliantly written movie doesn’t take home the gold statue for best picture. 


Actress in a Leading Role

Annette Bening in “The Kids Are All Right”

Nicole Kidman in “Rabbit Hole”

Jennifer Lawrence in “Winter’s Bone”

Natalie Portman in “Black Swan”

Michelle Williams in “Blue Valentine”

Prediction: Natalie Portman will take this one home for ‘Black Swan,’ arguably one of the best and most complex roles this year. Natalie’s transformation to the Black Swan took us all on a roller coaster ride of emotions. 


Actor in a Leading Role

Javier Bardem in “Biutiful”

Jeff Bridges in “True Grit”

Jesse Eisenberg in “The Social Network”

Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech”

James Franco in “127 Hours”

Prediction: We believe that the ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ will go to Jesse Eisenberg. While side by side with the real Mark Zuckerberg on SNL, we almost couldn’t tell who was who.
