The King’s Speech winning the most coveted Best Picture award is really predictable.  Its closest contender to the spot was Black Swan – but other than this, many film critics and reviewers were already sure The King’s Speech will nab the award by the end of the night.

The rest of the results were also highly expected – Natalie Portman winning Best Actress for “Black Swan”, Colin Firth for Best Actor in “The King’s Speech”, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo as Best Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in “The Fighter”.  They were my bets too, although I daresay that part of me really wanted James Franco to win the Best Actor Award, Annette Benning for Best Actress and Hailee Steinfeld for Best Supporting Actress.  Christian Bale was really untouchable – even my favorites Geoffrey Rush and Mark Ruffalo can’t top “Dicky’s” performance.

Some of the things that really caught my attention –

  1. Hailee Steinfeld looking stunning all through out.  She is the prettiest 14 year old actress in the world.
  2. Melissa Leo F-bombing.
  3. Natalie Portman teary eyed while accepting her Best Actress Award
  4. Jesse Eisenberg looking indifferent (and still in character, I supposed)
  5. Was it me or was James Franco bored with Anne Hathaway? Uh, idk.
  6. Francis Ford Coppola’s presence.
  7. Kirk Douglas being awaken from the dead.
  8. Jeff Bridges BAMF look.

And I just have to say this – where are all my Inception boys? Leonardo diCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy were not present in the event.

Lastly, I wish the Academy would give Leonardo diCaprio an Oscar Award.  He IS long overdue.  It’s like seeing Martin Scorsese getting snubbed with an Oscar win all over again (after all those brilliant films like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas).

Leo should have won the Best Actor Award in The Departed (which is my favorite film of the decade).  The thing is, he wasn’t even nominated.

Perhaps, the Oscar win will have its way around with either J. Edgar or The Great Gatsby (confirmed to be diCaprio’s upcoming films).  Sooner please.

    • I love Natalie Portman. Closer was a great film. Even though she didn’t win the Oscar Best Supporting Actress award for Closer, I think she nailed it on BAFTA. 🙂
