    It would have been funnier if his list of "winners" had been The Greatest Show on Earth, Forrest Gump, and Braveheart.

    This year's oscars won't be greatly remembered due to several reasons

    1. Hosts
    2. 10 best pic noms..just plain stupid
    3. Not many "emotional" moments.

    Best Picture...damn, The Social Network should have won. :(

    The King's Speech won only 4 oscars. Thought it would win more than that.

    :blah: The King's Speech was very good, but I don't think it was the best film of that group by some margin!

    And the King's Speech wins, so the "geezer vote" trumps the "whipper-snapper vote." :p

    True Grit went 0 for 10! I didn't care for it. It probably should have had only 2 nominations for Bridges and Deakins for cinematography.

    Color Purple and The Turning Point hold the record going 0 for 11. :(

    I feel bad for Anne. I think that she really tried to make it work.

    Her career has tanked because of James Franco. His career is dead too.
