It is Oscar Weekend — in honor of the Academy Awards, we’re showcasing our favorite Oscar related posts on the homepage of Pursuitist. And what movie will take home Best Picture? Right now, it is a battle between The King’s Speech and The Social Network. We think the Academy will go safe and give the award to King’s Speech. We also suspect that Natalie Portman will take home an Oscar for “Black Swan” — while Hailee Steinfeld will receive it for “True Grit.”

The film “The King’s Speech” has 12 nominations, including best picture and acting honors for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush.
