Highlights From The 83rd Academy Awards

There weren’t too many surprises at last night Oscars. The 83rd annual Academy Awards were hosted by Anne Hathaway and James Franco, who gave us moments of laughter, but overall contributed to a rather dull and boring award show.

The big winner of the night was The King’s Speech as expected. The film picked up Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Colin Firth picked up Best Actor, and Tom Hooper picked up Best Director. Natalie Portman took the award for Best Actress for Black Swan.

Also Kirk Douglas, who at 94 did a better job entertaining us than the hosts of the evening. Douglas presented the Best Supporting Actress award to Leo.
