    Terrible terrible. TER-RI-BLE. Best picture of the year shouldve been The Social Network. If not, inception. And best Actor, clearly Jesse Eisenberg. His portrayal of Mark Zuckerburg was phenomenal. But he is young so it is understandable why he did not receive this prestigious reward. James Franco shouldve have won if not Eisenberg. 127 hours was great. And lastly, HOW DID INCEPTION NOT WIN ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY? Mind Boggling. SO original? a freaking story about a king who isnt ready to lead his country and therefore takes speech lessons? BO-RING. and Not nearly as Original about dream creation ? INCEPTION

    @narrator to me it succeeded somewhat. I saw alot of flaws in it but thats prob just me

  3. the Narrator

    @daveactor7, it had it's flaws, true, but compared to any other film this year, save maybe TSN (which had a slightly daunting task of going back and forth with a lot of dialouge), it f*cking pwned 2011, just like Lotr did. It had an amazingly difficult story to tell, and with it's editing, it made a rather complex story seem all the more simplistic and as I love, it used all of it's tools (from slo-mo, to long cuts to help the film seem more understandable. Films like The Kings Speech, etc, just seen smooth, but that doesn't mean it's good editing. It's just doing the editors doing their job, because they have a simple, non-multi layered, straightforward story to tell. Inception pushed for grandeur, succeeded, and that's what it deserved the win.

    One of the reasons I skipped this years show was because I knew the movies I wanted to win, would not, so it looks like I was spot on for the most part on that. Inception at least won a few but it would have been sweet to see True Grit get the win over The Social Network for adapted screenplay.

  5. Daveactor7

    Excellent points sir. I was particularly disappointed when David Fincher lost best director
    About the editing for Inception- now that i saw it again today, I saw a hell lot of errors in the editing.

    People, stop bitching about The King's Speech winning and going to be forgetful. It was an obvious favorite of the academy's and it's not a a bad movie.The crowd favorites wer Inception and Black Swan, but neither had potential to win Best Picture. Also, you say The King;s Speech will be a forgetful win, well, can you name every movie that won bets picture withour being dishonest and looking it up? I don;t think so. You can probably think of 10, 20 if you're lucky. and besides, what ever you think was worthy of best picture, whether it was nominated or not is all that really matters, not what some other people think.

    So was NOT expecting TKS to take both Director AND Picture

    I thought both hosts were terrible. Next year - can we have the grown ups back please?

    @shuabert Still gotta disagree, but that's alright. Agree to disagree?

    Amy Adams *didn't* feel like Amy Adams (at least not the perception I had of her), and that is my point.

    congrats! Though King of Speech was dominant, hats off to Christian Bale for winning an Oscar and the Team from Inception and of course our lady love Ms. Natalie Portman of Black Swan sublime indeed!!! Cheers!

    @narrator At least the movieweb oscars got your back, lol. Inception for the win.

    @daveactor7 They were cute, but that's as far as I'm willing to go, lol. I just thought it was corny. Somewhere Over the Rainbow with all the Oscar recipients standing on stage? C'mon, man. All that was missing was Toto and the Wicked Witch of the West, lol.

  11. Josh

    @narrator And it rolled out those ideas through clunky exposition. I loved Inception, but I don't think it should have been anywhere near best screenplay.

    @dan1 The point is she is such a good character actress. She was virtually unrecognizable in that role, whereas Amy Adams still felt like Amy Adams, albeit giving a very good performance.

    4 years agoby @shuabertFlag

  12. the Narrator

    @stiles, spot on for me, man.
    @daveactor7, The Kings Speech had better characters and development, sure, but the screenplay for Inception itself was triumphant in terms of texture and boldness. It gave us scenes, ideas, and concepts we hadn't really entered or thought of before, grounding them in real life facts. The ideas seem to just roll off the page, and enter one's mind, in a genuinely intriguing way. Now I've also read part of The Kings Speech's script, and it was well done, if simple and lacking? After all, character development isn't the only thing scripts have going for them, and the characters in TKS, in my opinion, were;nt anything to cheer for, or feel for. That was just a bogus move on the Academy's part to cater to the artsy crowd, instead of the authentically superior choice. It's funny; for an original screenplay category, the winner could hardly be called original, as it was really just a typical crowd pleasure, with historical backing, and a unique conflict and execution of the idea. Whereas Inception was arguably the most "original" film of the year. Whatever, it's bogus, I'm pissed, sue me.

    Secondly, Alice in Wonderland had whacky Art Direction. That didn't make it GOOD Art Direction. It's like the production manager threw whatever they could into the set design and art design, just to make it busy and Burton like with bright colors clashing with dim ones. Gross, and unappealing to say the least.

    @thedude-abides, I agree, I was really expecting a lot from the hosts this year, but despite their efforts, (I do think they tried...), they came up short. The ending was totally cheesy as well, and I didn't buy it one bit. It didn't make me feel any better when I saw the winners take the stage behind the kids, most of which I called but rooted against.

    For me, I'm just ticked that Inception, Black Swan, and TSN were robbed of nearly everything, and TKS took home the important wins, as I called a long time ago. F*cking bogus, man. When really, all I have to say to prove that the Academy is bogus is this: Inception. Editing. Done.

    WDF? P.S. 22 was amazing at the ending. That was a strong highlight of that evening.
    James Franco was terrible while Hathaway did well. Franco said he didnt care about his hosting and it clearly showed.

  14. Dan

    @shuabert Pffft, I don't need any points proven to me by the likes of Leo. A nomination should have been good enough. Seriously, she wasn't even that good or stand out to me in The Fighter. Yeah, she had some good emotional moments here and there (appealing to Mark near the end, and the way she manipulated him), but Adams was fierce the entire time, bringing her A-game and showing the world she can do roles like that that are the antithesis of her previous... cutesy?... roles. Leo was already known for dramas, Adams wasn't, therefore the better performance and bigger surprise.

  15. Josh

    @dan1 Then it's probably best she did win to prove a point to people like you. She put herself out there because she thought the academy skews against older women. I agree. Hollywood in general does that.

  16. Dan

    Although I'm still against her winning. Maybe I'm being biased since I wanted to see youth triumph over dinosaurs, I dunno.

    @dan1 Her speech was pretty stupid.

  19. thedude-abides

    The F bomb didn't bother me. Neither did her winning. What bothered me was the over-dramatical demeanor. It was like watching someone open a gift on Christmas morning and overacting about how happy they are because they think being genuine isn't enough.

    @cupid Most retarded moment of the night. The Academy bungled everything up awarding her the Oscar, she bungled everything up in her acceptance, and it just left a general bad taste in everyone's mouthes.

    Damn what about Melissa Leo F bomb.

    @dan1 He probably told it earlier in case he didn't win last night, which I can understand.

    @thedude-abides I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Tom Hooper had reiterated that story before, but it worked well for his acceptance speech. Crystal was certainly good, and I felt it was fitting that Spielberg did the Best Picture announcement.

    Colin Firth and Natalie Portman were great as well.

    Endless tirade commence...

    1. James Franco looked like a teenager whose mother just dragged to the store when he'd rather be at home playing video games. He may has well had the words "don't give a f*ck" tattooed on his forehead. The guy literally should've stayed home because he was a statue, and that's putting it nicely.

    2. If not for Franco, Anne Hathaway would have been the worst Oscar host ever. From word go, everything she said or did was the very definition of uncomfortable. That, coupled with having to compensate for the statuesque Franco made last year's rumblings of Baldwin and Martin not being funny sound like a far cry to the "good 'ol days."

    3. Whoever the genius was who decided to make Kirk Douglas a presenter should be sent to the gallows immediately for being the world's biggest dumbass.

    4. Melissa Leo's acceptance speech. Where do I begin? Let's just say, if you thought Kate Winslet was annoying, don't watch Leo unless you have a bottle of scotch and a handgun nearby. Worst acceptance speech of all time.

    5. The "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" performance at the end of the show by the preschoolers with all the Oscar winners on stage was quite possibly the cheesiest thing I'd ever seen. They should have preformed their rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star" while they were at it.

    On a positive note...

    1. Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law's presentation
    2. Christian Bale's acceptance speech
    3. Steven Spielberg's presentation of Best Picture
    4. Tom Hanks' introduction
    5. Billy Crystal
    6. Tom Hooper's acceptance speech
    7. Randy Newman's acceptance speech

    Its a shame that "The Town" is not even nominated under any category. It has all the potential to participate in the Best Picture and Director category.

    The Academy needs to revamp the Oscars. The Oscars have become a boring spectacle. I could not watch it after 15 minutes. Back in the day the Oscars were fun to watch with themed skits. They also need to rethink the movies they nominate. How many people watching the Oscars saw the Kings Speech or will ever watch that movie? I bet...not many!
