Final Predictions - Art Direction

“Alice in Wonderland” - Production Design: Robert Stromberg; Set Decoration: Karen O'Hara
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” - Production Design: Stuart Craig; Set Decoration: Stephenie McMillan
“Inception”  -Production Design: Guy Hendrix Dyas; Set Decoration: Larry Dias and Doug Mowat
“The King's Speech”  - Production Design: Eve Stewart; Set Decoration: Judy Farr
“True Grit” - Production Design: Jess Gonchor; Set Decoration: Nancy Haigh

Should Win - Inception
Will Win - The King's Speech

Commentary - I think it is interesting just how close this particular race is, considering that it is Art Direction, but it has been a back and forth decision for me. After Avatar's win last year, the Academy has shown that they are not afraid to reward sci-fi/fantasy sets, so Harry Potter and Inception definitely have a shot, and I am starting to get an inkling that Inception could pull this off. As could Alice in Wonderland, another fantasy heavy film with splendid art direction,. But my guess is that all of these fantasy films cancel each other out and the more stately, and BP frontrunner The King's Speech takes the prize.
