Did the announcer just stutter? Maybe a nod to The King's Speech? No?

Anyway, Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale


This category might not have been quite as nailed down, but Bale did have the most momentum coming in and it wasn't that surprisingly that he won. Bale gets points in his speech for making fun of himself - but gets booed for throwing out a website? Eh, give him a break, he's just helping a guy out. Can't tell if he just forgot his wife's name or was just trying to come up with something moving to say.

Oh, now we have the singing. Hugh Jackman looks mortified. Has someone pulled of dressing in drag so well? Oooh, a Charlie Sheen joke - that's low.

Whoever thought to pair Russell Brand with Helen Mirren? Awesome.

Best Foreign Language Film: In a Better World, Denmark


The only film I have seen out of the nominees is Dogtooth, which is way too far out there for the Academy. So, that's all I have to say about that.

Those are some really white suits!

Best Adapted Screenplay: The Social Network

So we have The Social Network picking up its first award and I can say I'm glad to see it. This was an excellent script - the casting was great, but without good material to work with, it doesn't matter and The Social Network had some great dialogue. Now we'll see if The King's Speech can throw a counter-punch.

Best Original Screenplay: The King's Speech

And yes, it does. Well, now we have dueling awards from the nights two best picture front runners. Well, a great writer gave a pretty great awards speech. The one I've liked most so far!

Justin Timberlake is not Banksy - and I want an app to give me an animated background whenever I want.

Best Animated Short Film: The Lost Thing

I only usually see the Pixar short film before the Oscars, and this year is no exception. So I don't really have much more to say, except congrats the winners.


Best Animated Film - Toy Story 3

I mean, was there really any doubt? This was pretty much a lock all year. If there was one award I had to stake anything one, this would be it. Still upset that Despicable Me wasn't nominated, even though it would have been beaten. Toy Story 3 is the best in the series and Pixar is has pretty much cornered the market on this award.

Kudos to Kirk Douglas for making an appearance - the man's nearly reached the century mark and is still as ornery as ever.

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo

So her little plug that go so much negative feedback wasn't enough to derail her Oscar win. I kind of had her pegged, but as a second opinion I was really impressed by Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit.

Oh, snap, good thing's Oscar's on a time delay or we might have another live F-bomb. That would have been fantastic.

Best Cinematography - Inception

Here we are agreed, Inception was the top dog, though True Grit and Black Swan were both also quite good in this department. Just going to have to wait for a few of the other awards to see if there is a slant for best picture or not.

Well, the opening monologue wasn't too painful with mothers and grandmothers and a Marky Mark joke. And now Tom Hanks is announcing the first award:

Art Direction: Winner - Alice in Wonderland - beating all three best picture nominated films, King Speech, True Grit and Inception. So we don't have a barometer yet.

Still, if Alice in Wonderland had one thing going for it, it was its out-of-this-world look. Kind of surprised Inception didn't take home the award, but we're moving on.

Here we go! Ah, the old insert-yourself-into the best-picture nominees opening. plus Morgan Freeman and Alec Baldwin. And the mother-truckin' DeLorean. That was a pretty decent opening - and they didn't sing, so kudos for that as well. Onto the awards! 02/27/2011
