    The Social Network. Close behind was Toy Story 3, an animated sequel that completely bettered its predecessors and then some.

    The only nominated films I have yet to see are The Kids Are All Right and Winter’s Bone, but I would have been happier with just about any of the other films winning Best Picture over The King’s Speech (except True Grit, my least favourite of the ones I saw). Don’t get me wrong, The King’s Speech is a fine film, but there is nothing really extraordinary about it. It’s well-made, well-crafted and well-acted, but overall, a by-the-numbers, uncreative re-telling of an historical (thus, unoriginal) story. I have no problem with biopics winning Best Picture (if they’re great films, i.e. Schindler’s List), but at times it felt like a made-for-TV movie.

    My vote would have gone to Black Swan

    I went with The Social Network. The Kids are All Right gets my second place, I found it refreshing and a movie for the times.

    I’m for Black Swan too.  But I knew it was out of the running, especially when it significantly underperformed for nominations.  I mean no Costume Design or Screenplay or Make-Up (or even Art Direction and Mila Kunis)?? By that point, I was just happy Aronofsky finally made a Best Director lineup and wasn’t snubbed.

    Incredible year for films. Right up there with 1939, 1967, 1976, 1994, 2001, 2004 and 2007 as one of the best years for film.

    Yet The King’s Speech won.

    1. Inception (by a hair)
    2. The Social Network
    3. The Kids Are All Right
    4. The Fighter
    5. Black Swan
    6. Toy Story 3
    7. True Grit
    8. Winter’s Bone
    9. 127 Hours
    —a bunch of unnominated but still amazing films—
    10. The King’s Speech

    Toy Story 3 and Inception, followed by Black Swan. I would’ve loved the Social Network more, had Justin Timberlake weren’t in it, and The King’s Speech (Minus Firth) was a giant snoozefest.

    That is just how I feel about A Beautiful Mind. It felt just like a HBO TV movie.

    1) 127 Hours (despite its flaws, was easily the most effective film of the year)
    2) Toy Story 3 (effective and nigh flawless, I wouldn’t even argue if this won)
    3) Inception (may have been my low expectations of a messy, overambitious film, but this blew me away)
    4) True Grit (every aspect but the pacing was among the best of the year)
    5) Black Swan (thoughtful, well-acted, wonderfully executed, andthrilling/enterting throughout)
    6) Social Network (a well made story in every way, but it kept me wanting, never allowing itself to become more than a good story {Easily best directed and written})
    7) King’s Speech (great movie, but the direction and ambition was lacking severely)
    8) Fighter (very good, but inferior to the above films in every way)
    I didn’t see the others.
