Oscar Thought of the Day: The King's Competition

So....King's Speech has 12 nominations and will probably win Best this going to be a King's Speech award-fest...or will the love be shared as the night goes on?
I've voiced previously that I think David Fincher wins best director for The Social Network...but what about these other categories?

Best Picture: The King vs. The Social Network & True Grit

Best Actor: The King (Colin Firth) vs. No One

Best Supporting Actor: The King's Therapist (Geoffery Rush) vs. The Fighter (Christian Bale)

Best Supporting Actress: The King's Wife (Helena Bonham Carter) vs. Everyone (Jackie Weaver, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams, Hailee Steinfeld)

Best Directing: The King (Tom Hooper) vs. The Social Network (David Fincher)

Best Original Screenplay: The King's Scribe (David Seidler) vs.... Christopher Nolan's Dreams (Inception)

Best Cinemotography: The King vs. True Grit (Roger Deakins)

Best Art Direction: The King (and that crazy wall) vs. maybe....Inception?

Best Costume Design: The King Clothes vs. the other clothes (Alice in Wonderland, probably...maybe the Tempest or True Grit

Best Sound Mixing: The King vs. Inception

Best Editing: The King vs. The Social Network

Best Original Score: The King's Music vs. everyone (but probably not, but could be...Inception, How to Train your Dragon, Social Network)

Oh my goodness, that was a crazy wall! That scene of the back and forth between the king and Lionel Logue, where both are off center, really sticks in my memory. Great art direction!
