The King's Speech Rises Above All Competition

Hey, remember that time the Directors Guild of America decided that Tom Hooper was a better director than David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, David O. Russell and Darren Aronofsky? And remember how that sealed the Oscar race up and will lead to the glorified prequel to The Queen winning 8 Oscars?

Ugh. I don't have the patience. I know Speech has many fans, and it was good enough to make my top ten of the year, but it is NOT the best picture of the year, and it certainly was not helmed by the best director.

I don't have much else to say--I'll post something after the SAGs tonight. (In case you're wondering, The King's Speech is gonna win Best Ensemble, Best Actor and maybe even Best Supporting Actor there, while Natalie Portman will continue her winning streak for Best Actress--no idea how Best Supporting Actress will go.) In the meantime, check out the Current Oscar Predictions tab to see how the race has shifted.
