Jack Rico's 2010 Oscar Nomination Predictions

With less than 24 hours away from the 2010 Oscar nomination announcements, most of us movie critics are thinking who the Oscar committee will pick as the Top 10 films this year. Will the comedy ‘The Hangover‘ make a surprise appearance this year? How about ‘Up‘ which I think is one of the best films of the year overall.

Here at, I got together with our staff and decided to predict the nominees in the top 10 categories. In the Foreign Film department, 9 finalists made it and two of them are Latin American, there is an Argentinean film and Peruvian film in the mix. I picked both because they’re that good, but looks like Haneke’s ‘The White Ribbon’ will take major honors.

Closer to the Oscar Awards in March, I’ll give you my take on the winners.
