The 2011 Academy Awards feature 10 Oscar nominees competing for the 'Best Picture' Oscar. The Oscar nominations in this category run the gamut from the animated hit Toy Story 3 to the dramatic Black Swan, and they include plenty of offerings from past Oscar winners and ceremony newbies alike. Now you don't have to be a member of the Academy to decide who deserves to win at the 2011 Oscars. Just vote on your favorite films in the list below, or add your own list ranking the Oscar nominees. Since many of us have not seen EVERY movie on this list yet, be fair and just do not include the ones you have not seen (you can always adjust your list as you see more).
