Jeff Bridges is better in True Grit than he’s ever been, Liebowski included.

But…..Jeff Bridges won the Oscar last year.

Ergo – the impeccable Colin Firth — perfection as the stammering and reluctant King — will win this year’s Oscar. Perhaps it didn’t hurt his The King’s Speech performance that his remarkable co-star, Geoffrey Rush, won the Best Actor Oscar a few years back.

There you have it.

And once I see The Fighter, I’ll weigh in again on whether or not Christian Bale will take the gold statuette. I’m thinking he will.
