We finally made it! After predicting all of the major awards for this Monday's Oscars, we've come to the biggest cheese of them all: Best Picture. With 10 nominees, an Oscar first, this is perhaps the most difficult category to predict. But like the race for Best Director, I think it comes down to the exes.
Our Favourite: The Hurt Locker
Enthralling war drama The Hurt Locker is the little movie that could—and the sleeper hit of awards season. The movie and its director Kathryn Bigelow have been picking up steam over early favourite Avatar, especially in the past couple of weeks. The film is the complete package, with both a strong script and visuals, giving it a definite advantage over some other big name movies in the race.
Our Darkhorse: Avatar
