Best Leading Actor

  • Colin Firth in The King’s Speech – Winner!
  • Javier Bardem in Biutiful
  • Jeff Bridges in True Grit
  • Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network
  • James Franco in 127 Hours

Many of you may not have seen The King’s Speech. But the reviews were excellent! Colin Firth portrayed a king who had to overcome a speech impediment, or a stutter, in order to make a very important speech.

Best Leading Actress


Courtesy of Fox Searchlight Pictures
  • Natalie Portman in Black Swan – Winner!
  • Annette Benning in The Kids Are All Right
  • Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole
  • Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone
  • Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine

Gorgeous girl-next-door Natalie Portman was the favorite to win. And win it she did, for her haunting role as a ballerina in the psychological thriller, Black Swan.

Best Animated Film

With only three movies nominated in this category, it was a no-brainer that Toy Story 3 would walk away with the Oscar. But even though it was a terrific movie—the best of the Toy Story trilogy—there were many other animated films that deserved nominations this year, such as Despicable Me, Tangled and Guardians of Ga’Hoole.

Art Direction

This category is another no-brainer! From the amazing special effects to the colourful sets and costumes, Alice in Wonderland was definitely a work of art!

Costume Design


Courtesy of Disney
  • Alice in Wonderland – Winner!
  • I Am Love
  • The King’s Speech
  • The Tempest
  • True Grit

Alice in Wonderland takes home another Oscar for its elaborate costumes. Another well-deserved award!

Music (Original Score


Courtesy of Columbia Pictures
  • The Social Network – Winner!
  • How To Train Your Dragon
  • Inception
  • The King’s Speech
  • 127 Hours

For those of you who didn’t see The Social Network, the film was all about the creation of Facebook. There was a lot of drama and betrayal that went along with this true story. And even though the film isn’t climactic, it’s worth seeing.

Music ( Original Song)


Courtesy of Disney
  • We Belong Together from Toy Story 3 – Winner!
  • Coming Home from Country Strong
  • I See the Light from Tangled
  • If I Rise from 127 Hours

Toy Story 3 takes home another Oscar for the fun-loving song, We Belong Together.

Best Picture


Courtesy of Paramount Pictures
  • The King’s Speech – Winner!
  • Black Swan
  • The Fighter
  • Inception
  • The Kids Are All Right
  • 127 Hours
  • The Social Network
  • Toy Story 3
  • True Grit
  • Winter’s Bone

Well, it was a long shot. With the odds being 1 in 10, Toy Story 3 would have needed a miracle to walk away with this win. Nevertheless, we congratulate everyone who worked on The King’s Speech.

I mean, in the Amazing Spiderman, he kind of has a smart mouth, if you know what I mean (Not that I don't like it!), but in the original he didn't really.Plus in The Amazing Spiderman it was pretty obvious there was something strange about him. I mean, smashing the basketball hoop?!? Didn't ANYONE think it was suspicious?!?I'll have to get some Oscorp wire and make my own xD I wish!WHHHHHY?!? WHHHHHYYYYYYY?!?I know! Just because he didn't remember his name!No-one washes the flag! xD Yeah, I know right? Some people are so stupid! Like if I were in his high school, I would stalk him with lots of love in my eyes :) I KNOW:  WHYYYYY?? All villains are insane. Directors just try to make a point. Oh yeah, and the part when his aunt says he's filthy and he says he was cleaning the chimney. His aunt then says "we don't have a chimney" And then Peter's like: "whaaaaaaaat?" lol xD
