Oscar and Razzie Nominations and My Predictions

Both the nomination lists for the 83rd Academy Awards and the 31st Razzie Awards are out so I took a look and saw what was nominated and I decided to give my two-cents and predict who would win, (or lose in the Razzie's case).

These are for the nominations I actually care about the most.  I'm others care for the cinematography or the editing but I'm just taking care of the heavy-hitters.

Best Picture

"The King's Speech," Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, Producers
"127 Hours," Christian Colson, Danny Boyle and John Smithson, Producers
"The Social Network," Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca and Ce├án Chaffin, Producers (mostly likely winner)

On a side note, I want to know why there are so many nominees for Best Picture.  I mean some of these movies deserved it, movies like The Kids Are All Right and Toy Story 3 were good, but they didn't need a nomination.  What are your thoughts?
