Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' is by all means a very good film, but has it deservedly secured a place as the Best Picture at the 2010 Oscars this early in the game?

The awards blog Gold Derby thinks so -- boldly (and unexpectedly) predicting 'Inglourious Basterds' as the sure-fire winner of Best Picture .

In their assessment, the victor of the Best Director prize is the most essential factor when determining which film ultimately will take home Best Picture statuette during the Oscar telecast. The Gold Derby blogger further points out that the DGA (the union that votes for Best Director) has yet to honor Quentin Tarantino, pondering: "How can guild members resist voting for the Hollywood hipster?"
