Oscar 2011: Predictions, Picks, and Wishes

Last year I did in depth columns on all the categories. I enjoyed doing it, but I just did not have the time this year. This Year, I am going to do it the easy way. I will present you with each category followed by a clip/trailer of my pick to win, who I want to win, and where applicable of a film I feel should have been nominated in that category (not necessarily who I would choose to win, but would have wanted nominated). Sound Good? Of course it does. Granted, I don't know anyone interested in my picks, but here they are for posterity. (sorry for the repetitious Inception clips, most had embedding disabled)
