    THE WINNERS OF83rd ACADEMY AWARDS

    So the Oscar just ended a few moments ago but the list of winners look pretty much pre-indicated although Tom Hooper was the only major exception. Here are the list of winners and some commentaries to fill this post out.

    James Franco and Anne Hathaway pull some decent job, although not spectacular duty in hosting the night. The opening frames of Best Picture nomination seems as the best thing they have ever done together. After all, this is the first time the hosting duty is done by a man and a woman. Franco did most of the backstage job while Hathaway tries to charm us with her hosting skill. Overall, a good job for the beginners and I hope they will be given a chance in later years.

    The night winner is The King's Speech, going home with 4 wins including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Inception also take home four in science andx technology categories. The Social Network deemed as the early front-runner seems to have bowed down at the very last minute.
