    I guess minorities aren’t actors and actresses. They are just pretty or additional wallflowers in movies. Didn’t watch it. Not that they missed me, but I’m done watching only white people win! Matter of fact they should call it the Minorities Can’t Act Awards. (MCAA)

    On a side note, very happy for Natalie Portman! She deserved it.

  • Inception was awesome. Any movie that can create such a ridiculous range of emotion using only ONE SONG deserves to win Best Sound (Anything). Also Joseph Gordon Levitt and Tom Hardy are my favorite pairing ever. Everything was just brill.

      That song is amazing. I agree with you; every time it came on during the movie, I couldn’t wait for what was next. Even though I do think its an overrated film, I still like it. And I liked that pairing too.
      Ellen Page is awesome also. So underrated.

  • the kings speech. i lived for this movie and i am SO HAPPY that it won! completely deserved it

  • I loved Anne Hathaway last night, she hosted the whole thing by herself, it was like James wasn’t even there. What was that about? Other than that Sandra Bullock was the funniest (can she host next year?) along with Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr, Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. Colin Firth was a darling too and Natalie is just too adorable.
