Oscar Predictions — 'The Social Network', 'The King's Speech' & More! Check Them Out!

With the 83rd Academy Award nominations set to be announced bright and early Jan. 25, take a look at who we think may clean-up!

It is that time once again — Oscar nominations are almost out! This award season has seen much love for The Social Network, Natalie Portman in Black Swan and Colin Firth‘s performance in The King’s Speech, but there are a few more actors and films that may sneak in at the Oscars!

The Academy Award ballot is ranked, meaning though some performances or films don’t get as many votes they can still win based on more 1 or 2 rankings. This should almost surely bode well for Blue Valentine performers Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, and, in what would be the biggest surprise of the morning, the film as well we think.

Also benefiting from this we think will be John Hawkes, snagging Mark Ruffalo‘s spot in supporting actor, and Jacki Weaver, who will do the same to Mila Kunis based on her amazing performance in Animal Kingdom.
