Vulture’s Oscar Predictions: Who Will Win, and What to Say When They Do


Though it seems like a lot of the Academy Awards that will be handed out at the Oscars this Sunday are already sewn up, don't forget that at one point during awards season, we all considered The Social Network to be an unstoppable juggernaut (before it fell in crucial later ceremonies to The King's Speech). For all the front-runners this year, there are a ton of potent dark horses to be wary of when it comes to filling out your Oscar pool, and that's why Vulture is here to help with this comprehensive list of predictions — including the ones that might trip you up, like Best Sound Editing. We'll help you pick your winners, and even if you haven't seen all the nominated films (and who has the time?), we'll give you a talking point for each category that's guaranteed to make it seem like you did. Do your guesses match ours?
