Best crazy mom:
Melissa Leo in “The Fighter”
Barbara Hershey in “Black Swan”

Babs wins, due to keeping her 20-something baby girl in a pink room with stuffed animals. Melissa Leo is deluded but essentially sane.

Best amputation:
“True Grit” has two, but since “127 Hours” is built around one REALLY MAJOR ONE, it by rights wins

Best cussin’
Amy Adams as the tough girlfriend in “The Fighter” goes for volume with her many, many F-bombs, but Colin Firth as the King in “The King’s Speech” does it with a Brit accent along with marbles in his mouth and rolling on the floor. No contest. King's Speech.

Funniest scene:
The sex scene between Annette Benning and Julianne Moore early in “The Kids are All Right”. The reviewer gets to choose, and she busted a gut. Granted, “Black Swan”, if taken as kitsch, was a hoot to some.

Best use of Massachusetts in a movie:
Geez, how come it gets all the love?
“Social Network” was set mainly in nerdy boys’ rooms in Cambridge, so lacked scope; “The Fighter” was set in gritty Lowell, but segued to Vegas; “The Town” featured a great chase scene through Boston’s narrow, winding Charlestown streets as well as Ben Affleck's trademark overhead scene-setting shots.
Winner: “The Town”

Best Cowboy:
Aww. Woody of “Toy Story 3” was noble, cared about his friends, and took huge risks to save them. Jeff Bridges in “True Grit” was noble (underneath it all), cared about his friends, and took huge risks to save them.
Tie.

Most Annoying Use of Leo DiCaprio in a movie:
Where have you gone, Jack Dawson? “Inception,” of course.

Worst use of food in a movie:
The crazy mom in “Black Swan” gives her baby girl exactly one-half of a grapefruit, and one poached egg, for breakfast, and baby girl coos over how pre-tty the pink grapefruit is. The hiker in “127 Hours” has to drink a certain body fluid to stay hydrated while stuck. The director used apple juice. Ewwww. "127 Hours" wins it.
Winner: 127 Hours.

I would like to see

Best child actor/actress (same category) for those under 16 when the movie was released, instead of making them compete against adults in the supporting actor/actress categories even when they have the lead roles.

Best sports movie

I would like to see Best Cast become a category at the Oscars like the SAGs.

Best Remake, since they have been doing them a lot.

No contest. King's Speech.Best Fight Scene - when Miss Adams started cracking grilles of Mark Walberg's sisters. She bad!!!!

That's a good one — kind of like Best New Artist. I think they actually used to have a category like that.

That's another good one. Lord of the Rings was so well-acted, but to single out any one actor was a disservice to the rest, unfortunately — so none of them were (except for McKellan).

IIRC, Viggo M. got a nod by the time they got around to Part 3.

Nope. Sean Astin was buzzed about for a supporting actor nod, but the only one who got an acting nomination from LOTR was Ian McKellan — and it was the first movie.

Mortensen got an Oscar nomination for 2007's Eastern Promises.

Best Scene Stealer Actor/Actress - very little screen time (like Judi Dench in Shakespeare in Love).
This years winner - Juliette Lewis in Conviction. Only in 2 scenes, but brillant. Sucked the energy out of the movie in her second scene. Trailer trash quoting Shakespeare and knowing the law.

I'm waiting for them to start the Best Voice Work category. Considering the stars that are now doing animated films, I honestly think it's just a matter of time until it's an actual category at the Oscars.

Best DVD Extra. Winner: Alexander Skarsgard's drunken dance/semi strip-tease/groping in the Beyond the Pole DVD extras. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBybHKaNc8o) Purely hilarious. His costar Rhys Thomas looks like he wishes he were anywhere but there (though I bet there aren't many who would turn down the chance to be awkwardly groped, nibbled and licked by Eric Northman...)

Most overhyped load of crap: This year's winner, "Inception"

Thanks for the correction; I should have looked it up first.

Best Cameo Appearance Acting Award
For the Actor and Actress who was Awesome in a role that's too small to be a supporting performance.

- Patricia Clarkson, the Lady in the Cave in Shutter Island
- Winona Ryder, Black Swan
- Justin Timberlake, The Social Network

Ugh. I would totally disagree with this. I thought she was awful in this movie. She chewed up so much scenery, I'm surprised they didn't have to make new sets midway through filming. She was the only thing about the film that I didn't like.

Disagree here; I didn't think his role was that small at all. It was a genuine supporting performance.
