83rd Annual Academy Awards Winners

Filed under
Movies
-s

Well, I've kinda lost a lot of interest in the movie world this past year. I still watch movies occasionally, but couldn't get too excited about the Academy Awards. Nevertheless, since it's a tradition around here to cover some of the winners, here are the big categories.

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo, The Fighter

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, The Fighter

Best Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King's Speech

Best Animated Movie: Toy Story 3

Best Director: Tom Hooper, The King's Speech

Best Script: David Seidler, The King's Speech

Best Picture of the Year: The King's Speech (for a total of 4 wins)

I saw Black Swan which I thought was eerily haunting and thought provoking. I didn't see a lot of good reviews of it, but I liked it. I didn't see The Fighter. But I did see The King's Speech. I thought it was moving and inspiring. I liked it a lot. I saw Toy Story 3, which was almost as cute as 1 and 2.

You can find the full list of nominees and winners at oscars.org.

For those less aware of the behind-the-scenes antics, you might want to check out our full interview with its founder, Ikey Doherty, back in LU&D 162. Following on from a successful launch, the project looks to offer a stable, and alternative, take on the more common GNOME-based distributions.
