    The Social Network would’ve won BP and BD (like it really should have). Jesse Eisenberg probably would’ve won Best Actor or James Franco since Bridges and Bardem already won before. Best Screenplay would’ve gone to Inception, I think, since it did win the WGA Award. But Christopher Nolan would’ve actually been nominated for BD and there wouldn’t have been such an uproar, like this year kind of was since King’s Speech won BD and BP in the first place.

    Then The Social Network, David Fincher and Jesse Eisenberg would’ve rightfully won and Andrew Garfield would’ve been rightfully nominated. Let alone Mila Kunis for The Black Swan.

    Had there been no Firth in actor, Eisenberg would have had a major shot at more critics’ awards. He still won the National Society of Film Critics and the NBR. But actually I’m not quire sure about The Social Network winning picture. Back then I remember a lot of voters not feeling that the film should be winning picture. They had issues with the subject. I believe that The Fighter could have emerged with SAG, DGA victories and it could have easily taken best picture. So my guess is:

    Picture – The Fighter
    Directing – David O. Russell
    Actor – Jesse Eisenberg
    Actress – Portman
    Supporting Actor – Bale
    Supporting Actress – Leo
    Original Screenplay – The Kids Are All Right
    Adapted Screenplay – TSN

    Picture would have been a toss-up because te guilds would’ve been all over the place. DGA would have went to Fincher, WGA went to Inception and The Social Network. It would have depended on what PGA chose.

    Wrong David. He swept that awards circuit losing only the Oscar. I don’t think he would lose.

    I think Fincher would have won the DGA and the Oscar , because he won everything else after all.  Picture is harder, but I would say The Fighter could have pulled off an upset victory over  TSN (I think it would have won the Best Ensemble award at the SAGS over it), but its more likely that TSN would have taken PGA and also BAFTA, paving the way for its Oscar victory.  Best Actor would have gone to Eisenberg or Franco, most likely Franco. Original screenplay would most likely go with Inception or The Kids Are All Right.

    ^ I love every single thing you write. THAT would´ve been the perfect way to fill the lineup.

    To answer the title kinda question: the oscars would´ve made one of their best “best picture” choices, making the right thing without a shadow of a doubt. There would be no discussion as to wether the right film won and all would be right in the world!

    Yes, I´m forever bitter that the winner STOLE the prize from Fincher and his beautiful film. Also, this post only makes me want to cry realizing how better everything would be without this just ok movies existance.
