Final Predictions - Best Original Score

“How to Train Your Dragon” John Powell
“Inception” Hans Zimmer
“The King's Speech” Alexandre Desplat
“127 Hours” A.R. Rahman
“The Social Network” Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Should Win - Hans Zimmer "Inception"
Will Win - Alexandre Desplat "The King's Speech"

Commentary - Hans Zimmer's score for Inception was wonderful, and while I like The King's Speech, I think that a win here is not deserved, as it is in other categories. However, Desplat has yet to win an Oscar, and the film is so beloved, I think it takes the prize. The only other possibility is most like The Social Network, but I do not think that the uptight Academy will reward such a modern and subdued score. Rahmen and Powell should be happy with their nominations.
