Oscars 2011 winners

The red carpet has rolled in the winners. And so after hours of watching Tweets and live blogging sessions, I now present to you the 2011 Academy Award winners:

The King's Speech bags major plums, including Best Picture, Director, and Actor.
Best Picture: The King's Speech

Best Director: Tom Hooper, The King's Speech

Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King's Speech

There was no contest (in my opinion) that Natalie Portman will win Best Actress for her role as ballet dancer Nina.
Best Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, The Fighter

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo, The Fighter

Best Original Screenplay: David Sleider, The King's Speech

Though losing the Best Picture award, The Social Network managed to win some accolades, including Best Adapted Screenplay.
Best Adapted Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network

Best Animated Feature Film: Toy Story 3

Best Foreign Language Film: In a Better World (Denmark)

Best Documentary Feature: The Inside Job

Best Art Direction: Alice in Wonderland

Technical awards were given to Inception, such as Best Cinematography and Visual Effects.

Best Film Editing: The Social Network

Best Costume Design: Alice in Wonderland

One of the best movies of 2010, Toy Story won for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
Best Original Song: We Belong Together by Randy Newman for Toy Story 3

Best Original Score: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for The Social Network

Best Animated Short: The Lost Thing

Best Documentary Short: Strangers No More

Best Live Action Short: God of Love

Best Makeup: The Wolfman

Best Sound Editing: Inception

Best Sound Mixing: Inception

Best Visual Effects: Inception

I think the major winners were pretty predictable, especially for the acting awards. Though I would've wanted my personal favorite, Toy Story 3, to bag the biggest plum that night, I think The King's Speech is a worthy winner.

Congratulations to everyone!
