A lot of these seem like locks, but there are always at least one or two surprises. I feel more uncertain about many of my alternates than I do my actual picks. Tomorrow, I'll post how I did and finally, my top films of 2010. 

My tally:
"The King's Speech" - 7
"Inception" - 3
"The Fighter" - 2
"The Social Network" - 2
"Toy Story 3" - 2
"Black Swan" - 1
"Exit through the Gift Shop" - 1
"God of Love" - 1
"In a Better World" - 1
