This week, President Obama decided to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act -- a decision that, in another time, would have been expected to prompt major blowback.

If this is a harbinger, The Fighter will take home the best picture Oscar. But the buzz at all the pre-Oscar events is that it's a two-film race -- The King's Speech vs. The Social Network. What's your prediction?
