Final Predictions - Best Original Screenplay

“Another Year” Written by Mike Leigh
“The Fighter” Screenplay by Scott Silver and Paul Tamasy & Eric Johnson;
Story by Keith Dorrington & Paul Tamasy & Eric Johnson
“Inception” Written by Christopher Nolan
“The Kids Are All Right” Written by Lisa Cholodenko & Stuart Blumberg
“The King's Speech” Screenplay by David Seidler

Should Win - Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg "The Kids Are All Right"
Will Win - David Seidler "The King's Speech"

Commentary - While I preferred the realtistic approach of The Kids Are All Right, a film oozing with authenticity and heart, The King's Speech is most likely going to take this one on its way to a Best Picture victory. Inception is really the wild card here. While Nolan took the WGA, Seidler was not able to be nominated, so it's strength has not been tested. Also, in terms of overall strength of the film, The King's Speech is definitely a more popular film, while Inception is seen as a technical achievement, and not as much about the story. I say it is between the three films mentioned above, with Seidler in the lead.
