And, with that, these are your 5 front-runner Best Picture nominees. Making me eat my words about Black Swan (too weird for Oscar) & The Fighter (too generic).

It also puts a bit of a damper on those buzzes that True Grit was coming up to steal the Best Picture Oscar from The Social Network and The King's Speech. We'll see.
