Poll: Will 'Inception' win the Oscar for best picture?

"Inception" just pulled off another dream come true for Warner Bros., topping the box office for the third weekend in a row. As our Company Town blog reports, "Director Christopher Nolan's thriller took in a studio-estimated $27.5 million this weekend, bringing its domestic box-office total to $193.3 million. The complex film about dreams within dreams that has become a word-of-mouth blockbuster is sure to top $250 million and still has a shot at $300 million."

Surely, "Inception" will be nominated for best picture at the Oscars. The academy recently expanded the list to 10 nominees in order to make sure blockbusters -- such as  Nolan's praised but un-nominated "The Dark Knight"  -- aren't snubbed. But can "Inception" win?

Competition is fierce, including "127 Hours" from the "Slumdog Millionaire" team of director Danny Boyle and writer Simon Beaufoy; "The Social Network" (see writeup and trailer here); and Clint Eastwood's latest, "Hereafter." Which one do you think is ahead to win?
