The Oscars are this Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and all week long, we’ve been gearing up for the big night, interviewing nominees and blogging about the awards show. And even before their nominations were announced, we were sitting down with Melissa Leo, Colin Firth, and Danny Boyle. Today we'll make our final bets on the weekend's winners and losers.

Movie Date co-hosts: Rafer Guzman, film critic for Newsday, and Takeaway culture producer Kristen Meinzer don't agree all of the time, except when it comes to one prediction: it seems like everyone in the universe thinks Christian Bale is going to win for his supporting lead in "The Fighter."

Todd was right. True Grit was unworthy. I've seen most of the movies on the list and think it's hard to make a case for most of them. The Kings Speech is somewhat worthy, but my vote would have been for The Fighter.

Razzy: it would have been for Sex and the City 2, except that did us the favor of hopefully ending that series forever. Skyline was my razzy movie, the commercials promised so much and the idea was so promising but the movie was just horribly flat.
