2011 Oscar Predictions

Predicting Oscar Winners: Will Inception Take Home Best Picture Win?

The Oscars are just a few weeks away, but the buzz surrounding the nominees has been building since they were announced last month. While only a few people know who the winners are before they're revealed on the big night, e.Life, a social media monitoring service, says that the Twitter buzz factor in big cities like NYC and LA can help predict who the winners may be.

According to its research, Inception has the biggest chance of taking home the win for best picture, while Black Swan comes in a close second. See who e.Life has pegged for the best actor, best actress, and best director categories after the break.

The Twitter noise surrounding Colin Firth has e.Life predicting he'll win the Oscar, while Natalie Portman takes top honors for best actress. NYC and LA are split on the best director category, though, with NYC buzzing about David Fincher (The Social Network) and LA favoring Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan). I would have thought it would be the other way around!

What do you think — can social media buzz in big-time entertainment cities like NYC and LA predict Oscar winners? Tell us your opinion, along with who you think should win, in the comments. And be sure to get in on BuzzSugar's Oscar giveaway now to win a flatscreen TV!
