The nominees have been discussed in other posts, and we've all laid out who deserves to win, who we hope/want to win. But for the purpose of my Oscar pool, who do you think WILL win, regardless of whether it was the best, most deserving or meritorious.

For a long time I had Deakins pegged to win...he's got nine noms, and is definitely overdue. But when the ASC gave its top award to Pfister, I was thrown for a loop. Does this suggest Inception has legs, and will clean up in the technicals? Or will the Adademy at large go for the fellow with the most noms without a win, Deakins?

Or will they just throw one more onto "The King's Speech" pile of awards?

The King's Speech. Period films always seem to be considered in a higher echelon than anything else at the oscars.

"The King's Speech" if it's a clean sweep (unlikely).
"Inception" if it matches the winner of the ASC awards (and so far, it's happened less than 40% of the times).

I still think it's going to be Deakins.

I also think Deakin's will get it. As usual beautifully composed shots and the lighting was impeccable.

Although, i woudln't be sad tp see 'The King's Speech' win, A few european'esque styles scenes in that blew me away.

In terms of WILL win, Deakins.

I have my fingers crossed for Deakins. But I think Wally Pfister wins.

After seeing The King's Speech, the last of the nominees I hadn't yet seen, I hope it will win in the cinematography category. I also think Colin Firth should win for best actor. He was really wonderful.
