In Brudge gets my vote. I look forward to them finding a clip without swearing to show at the ceremony. Little bit dissapointed not to see The Dark Knight there, though.

In Bruges also gets my vote, out of the ones I've seen.

I obviously need to see WALL-E again or it might be everyone's gone bonkers.

Happy-Go-Lucky deserves to do well for its acting but as one of the best screenplays of the whole year? Ooo, don't get me started.
