As the Gurus o’ Gold( I used to be one, once! Yes! It’s true!) put up their near-to-final picks for Oscar, there’s ONLY one change ini ONE major category. “The King’s Speech”, Colin Firth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale are all the same #1’s they were before, but HAILEE STEINFELD of “True Grit” has move up to # 1 in the Best Supporting Actress category! That race, I swear, is going to be decided by one vote!
We’ll never know of course, because Oscar NEVER prints totals, but it’s gonna be close! A photo finish! I’m still saying “The King’s Speech” will sweep, however.
