Which Film Deserves the Best Picture Oscar?

Nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards were handed out yesterday, and after months of waiting we finally found out which ten films would be competing for Best Picture. They are:

The Blind Side
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
A Serious Man
Up in the Air

There aren't too many surprises to be found there, except for maybe The Blind Side sneaking in ahead of films like Invictus and Nine, and District 9 somehow finding its way on there, perhaps because academy voters were just happy to see a smart summer blockbuster hit theaters for a change. Fact of the matter is, this list is a lot more commercial and accessible than it's been in the past, probably because the Academy wants desperately to relate to a wider audience.
Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
Be that as it may, a winner still has to be chosen. Which film do you think deserves to win it all? In my opinion, it's going to come down to either Avatar (which won the Golden Globe for Best Picture) or The Hurt Locker (whose director just won the coveted DGA award). Then again, at this point, I wouldn't put anything past The Blind Side. The Academy is obviously beginning to reward commercial success with nominations – why wouldn't they do the same thing with an actual statue?
Let us know which film is your pick for Best Picture in the comments section…
