    “Who Will Win–and Who Should?”

    By kyle | February 24, 2011

    Related question: Who cares? For all the Oscar stuff, I suppose you can check out Entertainment Weekly or something. Nevertheless, I’ll be livetweeting the Oscars Sunday night. I have no idea why. Makes the pain a little more bearable, I guess. As does a nice 2001 Bordeaux. My tweet handle is @rkylesmith.

      For Should Win:

      Picture: The King’s Speech
      Director: David Fincher
      Actor: Colin Firth
      Actress: Natalie Portman
      Supporting Actor: Jeremy Renner
      Supporting Actress: Helena Bonham-Carter

      For Will Win, switch out Fincher for Tom Hooper, Renner for Christian Bale, and Carter for Melissa Leo

      I haven’t cared about the Oscars since “Cuckoo’s Nest” ran the table and/or “Rocky” was the upset winner vs “President’s Men” and “Network.”
