And the 2011 Oscar Winners Are…

I figured that The King’s Speech is going to win Best Picture. Looks like I’m going to have to check this movie out and see what all the hoopla is about. One of my favorite movies of 2010, The Social Network, nabbed 3 awards including best film editing, original score, and adapted screenplay. It was nice and amusing to see Trent Reznor win for best original score. Our comic book actors, Christian Bale (Batman) and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster in Thor), also won for best supporting actor and for best actress. Looks like Batman upstaged Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).
