Is The King's Speech a best picture lock now ?

The King's Speech, which stars Colin Firth as King George VI learning to overcome a stutter, also starring Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter and Guy Pearce has come away with winning The Peoples Choice Award for best film at the recent Toronto Film Festival, besting other festival favorites such as 127 Hours, Black Swan and Rabbit Hole.
Many now conclude this win is almost a sure thing Oscar nomination lock in the Best Picture category. It also played to many raves at the Telluride Fest as well.
If I had to bet I would also agree with that intimation. It has a strong positive buzz following it around. If that doesn't convince you, previous TIFF winners were Precious, just last year, Slumdog Millionaire the year previous and Brokeback Mountain in 2005.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
