List of Winners for the 83rd Academy Awards

Hey Gang! Here's the complete list of winners from this years 83rd annual Academy Award ceremony. I have to say it started out great, and I was really happy with the way it started. I think James Franco and Anne Hathaway did a good job hosting the show. I especially loved that opening sequence leading into the Oscar ceremony. I was really hoping The Kings Speech wouldn't win Best Director or Best Picture, of course deep down I knew it would. I was rooting for The Social Network. As much as I loved The Kings Speech, it's not one of those movies that I'll watch over and over again over the years. In fact I'm not sure I'll ever watch it again. But The Social Network is a film I will watch over and over again. I think it was an all around better film. Mazer made a great point that Citizen Kane lost to a film called How Green Was My Valley. Does anyone ever watch or study How Green Was My Valley? Nope. In more recent years does any go back and watch the film Crash? nope, but that's just how the Academy works I guess.

We did a whole little live blog with our readers during the Oscars in which everyone was sharing their thoughts on the winners and losers. You can read through that here if you want.
