    @Joshua you do not know. Second-all of the ppl on here dont think the Social Network is BORING. I also happen to have respect for The King's speech. I'm actually up for it winning the upset. But best director is David Fincher this year.

    "That was a lie and very boring" -I don't know if the film was actually all true, but considering you call it boring? No. Just no.

    I just want one year--just one--where something like Winter's Bone just rises up and wins. Hahaha.

    As happy as I am for Hooper, Fincher is going to walk away with the oscar this year. It's really up to the social network or the King's speech. True Grit despite having 10 nominations, will lose most of them and end up taking home a technical award.

    Interesting. Yeah, Fincher for the gold... but, I really cant say until I've seen King's Speech!

    As much as some of us would like to see Fincher walk away with that Director and Best Picture Oscar, I'm betting on Tom Hooper's stuttering king flick to upset everyone. It was made to win awards, and awards it has won and will continue to win.
