Watching the Oscars...

So far, The King's Speech has only won Original Screenplay. My favorite part in the movie:

King George VI: Oh, bugger orf!
Lionel Logue: Is that the best you can do?
King George VI: Well... bloody bugger to you, you beastly bastard.
Lionel Logue: Oh, a public school prig could do better than that.
King George VI: Shit. Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit!
Lionel Logue: Yes!
King George VI: Shit!
Lionel Logue: Defecation flows trippingly from the tongue!
King George VI: Because I'm angry!
Lionel Logue: Do you know the f-word?
King George VI: F... f... fornication?
Lionel Logue: Oh, Bertie.
King George VI: Fuck. Fuck! Fuck, fuck, fuck and fuck! Fuck, fuck and bugger! Bugger, bugger, buggerty buggerty buggerty, fuck, fuck, arse!
Lionel Logue: Yes...
King George VI: Balls, balls...
Lionel Logue: ...you see, not a hesitation!
King George VI: ...fuckity, shit, shit, fuck and willy. Willy, shit and fuck and... tits.

BWAAAHHHH! It was even funnier the second time around.

No surprises in Supporting Actress (Melissa Leo for The Fighter) and Supporting Actor (Christian Bale, also for The Fighter). Toy Story 3 won Animated Feature, Social Network won Adapted Screenplay and Original Score (Yuck- should have gone to Inception or King's Speech), Inception won Cinematography and both Sound awards.

Glad to see Alice in Wonderland get awards for Art Direction and Costumes- even if it did beat King's Speech.

Ooooops- Melissa Leo dropped the f-bomb during her speech. www.youtube.com/watch At least she acknowlegd her goof.

James Franco and Anne Hathaway were kind of so-so as hosts. Funny in spots, but mostly kind of bleah. Anne is a bit stiff.

The "In Memorium" segment sucked. I f-ing hate Celine Dion. At least they ended it with a tribute to Lena Horne. They remembered Susannah York, which was nice, but omitted Corey Haim. That was mean. :(

Tom Hooper wins Best Director for The King's Speech!

No surprise, Natalie Portman wins Best Actress. I guess Annette Bening will never win an Oscar...at least she didn't lose to that overrated Hilary Swank this time! (I do admit Swank deserved it for Million Dollar Baby, but other than that, I can't stand her.)

King's Speech- Best Picture!!! Awesome. It was my favorite film of the year, and Colin Firth's performance was career-defining.
