- Best Documentary feature
Backup Pick : Gasland by Josh Fox and Trish Adlesic. About natural gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing and the effect on communities. Seems like it'd be dull with those topics but isn't. The green movement should love it
Most deserving (My pick): Exit through the Gift Shop is a great film. I don't even care about street art and I liked it. Nothing should stop it from winning except the aura that the film is about a well-engineered con.
- Best Foreign Language Film
Backup Pick : Biutiful (Mexico) in Spanish by Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu. Bleak crime-drama but very family oriented. Sounds a bit like its channeling The Godfather,right? It isn't. But it's still very good.
Most deserving (My pick): Biutiful (Mexico) in Spanish by Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu. I like depressing crime-drama films.
- Best Picture
Backup Pick : The King's Speech from
Most deserving (My pick): Toy Story 3 from Darla K. Anderson. It's not that I think Toy Story should win over The Social Network. But I think animated films need to be taken seriously. (How was Wall-E not even nominated for this award?)
