Oscar Nominees: Best Sound

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Inception” and “True Grit”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Inception, The King’s Speech, Salt, The Social Network, True Grit

This category is hard to predict because voters often like to reward Best Picture frontrunners like “The King’s Speech” and “The Social Network” and then throw in a true technical choice – the brainless but better sound-wise “Salt” to join Best Picture nominees with impressive and evident sound mixing, “Inception” and “True Grit.” Nothing more to say on the category other than that it’s sad not to see “Iron Man 2,” even though I predicted it wouldn’t make the cut.

My current bet to win: “Inception”
