Award season is finally underway, and Hollywood already seems to have its darlings. Academy showings, DVD screeners, advertisements and star Q&A sessions are all part of the campaign. So far, "The King's Speech," "The Social Network," "The Fighter"
and "Black Swan"
are among this year's biggest contenders.
