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!

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)

  • We Belong Together from Toy Story 3 – Winner!

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.
