Final Predictions - Best Original Score
“The King's Speech” Alexandre Desplat
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.
