Latest Entertainment News Headlines

The full list of Oscar winners, losers and our liveblog!

02.27.2011

This is the spot for all the latest and greatest from the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on JoBlo.com! We'll be live-tweeting the event and you can follow along with the fancy little widget below. This here article will also be updating immediately with the winners as they happen. Join the chat by tweeting us at @joblocom and through the comments below this article (we'll be reading those and posting some of your thoughts as well). We're just about to start so let's sit back, crack open a beer and see what happens!

The show is over and mercifully so. From the hosts to the audience to the winners to the choices of winners, this show lacked any real life. We recorded a post-Oscar podcast last night and barely had anything to say because the whole affair was just...there. For better or worse, it existed to hand a bunch of people a gold trophy. As Moreno said last night, if the highlight of your awards show is the guy with the big afro who won Best Live-Action Short, they you know you're in trouble.

So what was there to enjoy? You can certainly be happy for Trent Reznore and Atticus Ross who picked up a surprise trophy for their SOCIAL NETWORK score. An oblivious and hilarious Kirk Douglas stalling endlessly while handing out the Best Support Actress award was fantastic if only because you could see it threw the normally well-choreographed affair off-kilter. Rick Baker deserved to win for his makeup on THE WOLFMAN and it's always nice to see geek heroes get recognized by the Academy. And in the major acting categories, the best candidates won, even if the winners were telegraphed months ago.

So what was there to not enjoy? All too much, unfortunately. The pre-taped intro was the only moderately funny bit performed by hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway (and it wasn't even all that funny). From the get-go, their chemistry just seemed off. Hathaway was overdoing and Franco was completely underdoing it. That could work but it didn't here.

There was so much that didn't work, I couldn't possibly list it all here but in no particular order we have the painfully awkward "Auto-tune the Oscars" segment, the Bob Hope hologram, Justin Timberlake's Banksy jokes... Even an unscripted moment in an otherwise highly scripted evening - when Melissa Leo said "f*ck" during her acceptance speech - was turned into a cringe-worthy moment when Hathaway used it to promote how "hip" the Oscars were (it was tongue-in-cheek, I get that, but the joke fell completely flat).

Roger Ebert put it best after the show: "The worst Oscarcast I've seen, and I go back awhile. Some great winners, a nice distribution of awards, but the show? Dead. In. The. Water."

What do you think the Oscars can do next year to improve on this year's show and who do you think would be the perfect host?

Who cares

I for one couldn't care less about the flashy jazziness of the show. It's an awards show after all and year after year it's pretty much the same deal. Who cares really? Truly deserved oscars are few and far between anyway and who the fuck gets to be judge and jury on best picture anyway? I for one enjoyed Black Swan, Social Network, Winters Bone, Kings Speech and many more all equally sooo. Yeah. who cares.

3 Conclusions from the Oscars..

1) Golden Schmoes >>>> Oscars
2) Deserving directors are often snubbed (Fincher and Nolan)
3) When The King's Speech was set to win only best actor every one supported the movie, but when it won Director and Film everyone turned against it...Funny isn't it?

For the record, outside of Firth's performance, I really disliked "The King's Speech", and have been against since it first became a frontrunner. I honestly don't understand the love that damn film was getting, especially from the (usually) better schmoes here.

First telecast i watch from beginning to end in quite a while but as much as i like Anne Hathaway and James Franco as actors, they really seem uncomfortable as host last night, Franco always seems frozen with a big goofy smile on his face will Hathaway really seem nervous and was somethimes laughing or forgetting words for no reasons.

Same goes for Colin firth, Natalie Portman, Melissa Leo and Christian Bale. Toy Story 3 winning best animated feature was too bad even if it was predictable. The biggest surprise was Alice in Wonderland winning 2 oscars especially in categories that they weren't the favorite. Finally, i'm sad that Incendies didn't win best foreign film since i would have love to hear denis villeneuve's speech.

Douglas wasn't oblivious

He was consciously playing off the awkwardity his age and health imposed. And it was indeed great.

The main reason I watched the Oscars was because I was dying for Christian Bale to win for best supporting actor. I was so stoked when he did, because it's long overdue and so deserved. It was also great seeing Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor win for their work (weird seeing them all dressed up at the Oscars though). Other than, that I didn't find it to be a particularly interesting ceremony and in all honesty, there were some truly humiliating things to behold (I love both James Franco and Anne

Meh, exactly!

I have to say that I've seen better. My favorite one, in recent history, is the one hosted by Hugh Jackman in 2009. What I loved about that show is his energy and his performances, and also that little bit where previous winners of the acting awards pay tribute to the nominees. This year's hosting couple James Franco and Anne Hathaway were there to attract the younger audiences, which resulted in the show looking like a big joke.

What I loved about that show is his energy and his performances, and also that little bit where previous winners of the acting awards pay tribute to the nominees. This year's hosting couple James Franco and Anne Hathaway were there to attract the younger audiences, which resulted in the show looking like a big joke. Hathaway was very natural, and funny at times, but the jokes were to shallow, if you ask me. As for Franco, he was simply terrible. Maybe it was the nerves, since he was also in the run for a big award, but the man looked like he was going to faint every second he was on stage. While Ann was childish and cute, he tried to give balance to that, but he overdid it, with his robotic tone of voice and unarticulated applauses.

The best part of the show for me were the montages - the opening one, with the hosting couple entering the nominated best films, and the one announcing the fake year of the musical, which was hilarious. The whole show was about looking back at the Oscar history, and the presenters of the categories payed homage to the best films that had won in it, with the accompanying animation in the background. I also liked the fact that they reestablished the performances of the best film songs (Florence and the Machine and Gwyneth Paltrow were amazing). The show really lacks music, and the one interrupting long and boring speeches is insufficient. The part of the show before the special effects award was really nice, recreating the first televised Oscar show from 1953.

All in all, we had one mild and flat evening, that barely kept me awake. An extreme makeover is needed to restore this show to its 50s glory. First of all, move it before the other award shows, and give us some suspense! Secondly, do something with the boring categories and give us a real SHOW with experienced hosts, who can do more than act in montages!

Hathaway and Franco were wasted, they should have written it for themselves, Hathaway's 'Drink at home' flub proved she can be funny.

Randy Newman's speech was probably my favourite and was a much deserved award.

Besides David Fincher losing for Director I'd say it was a pretty acceptable night. Hopefully he doesnt have to wait as long as Scorsese. But Marty did lose for Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Gangs of NY, and The Aviator so maybe third time's the charm for Fincher. I also didn't like how they brought someone out to introduce the person who was actually gonna give out the award. Wtf was that about?

You said it, the show was an unmitigated disaster. They really should never use whoever wrote any of the Hathaway/Franco bits. The winners weren't bad but the writing sure was.

Not the best Oscars. The Kirk Douglas part was lame. I wasn't crazy about the hosts, but I did like the opening bit about Inception into Alec Baldwin's dream.

I'm surprised that Biutiful didn't win. Overall it was an okay Oscar night. Franco & Hathaway did an okay job - not that good but not that bad either. The King's Speech was like a dark horse though.

Are you being serious? Did you hear about/ follow any of the other major awards? "The King's Speech" was extremely favored to win (by the voting members of each respective award).

You are a silly man to think such.

as for the winners - funny how people complaining (all the time) about fincher not getting it.
uhm, if you complain, please do complain about black swan/aronofsky not getting oscar, not a mediocre film like social network.
but at least you're not complaining about the most overrated movie - Inception.

Look this whole thing is obviously subjective but David Fincher's loss really stung.

Tom Hooper's direction was the weakest part of an already overrated film. The King's Speech was cute. Firth & Rush were great no doubt but Hooper directed the film like a fresh out of film school hack. "Hey, I got a fish eye lens! Let's use it to make the audience feel uncomfortable for the King." And then he kept doing that... For the ENTIRE fucking movie.

Obviously it's a popularity contest because

Obviously it's a popularity contest because Fincher could give a shit about the Academy and he proved it tonight with his consistent bored expression. But Jesus Christ... Aranofsky and O'Russell blew Hooper's hack job out of the water.

This will go down as one of the most assanine choices the Academy has ever made. And this is the same organization that awarded "Crash" Best Picture.

Trent Reznor - Oscar Winner!

Maybe King's Speech is a good movie, I just haven't seen it yet nor have any real desire to.

Social Network picked up 3 Oscars...finally Sorkin gets one in the bag. Inception got some love, as did Toy Story 3. Those were my three favorite films last year.

Kirk Douglas made me laugh. A hilarious self-deprecating nod towards the obligatory rambling speech from a geriatric Hollywood-ite.

Could care less about the other categories & winners but David Fincher seriously got robbed tonight. He made The Social Network more than just the movie about Facebook. Watch the special features & you can see how much effort & heart & passion he put into the movie. It was finally his time to shine & the academy screwed that up.

The Oscers are always a disappointment. Inception was the best film of the year. It had a fresh story, great characters, and was exciting. King's Speech is just another boring period piece the academy blows their load on. When are movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the world,28 days later, fear & loathing in las vegas, and many more get overlooked.

Harry Potter better win "Best Original Score" next year, I was thinking and I can't believe it has never won that award. It has become iconic at this point, and deserves to be with John Williams' other classic scores that won.[Star Wars, Jaws, ET, Schindler's List.] Also surprised Newman didn't win best song for the original Toy Story in 1995. Everyone knows that song to this day.

I'm glad award season is over

Jennifer Lawrence deserved best actress. She gave by far the best performance.

I'm a fan of Natalie Portman but am disappointed to see her win for playing an over-the-top one dimensional caricature.

Glad to see Christian Bale win. He was excellent in The Fighter although I didn't like the movie itself. The scenes without him mostly dragged.

I hated The Social Network. The fact that Aaron Sorkin won for that shows me that the academy only appreciates the most artificial type of

Inception didn't deserve anything. An overrated pile of junk (that wasted Ellen Page).

Winter's Bone or The Kids Are All Right deserved best picture but I at least liked The King's Speech so I'm glad that won over The Social Network.

I was happy with the Oscars and the winners. I can't wait to see The Fighter again on DVD. Bale gave one of the greatest performances I have ever seen in that movie and truly deserved his award.

I think Bale should keep that look for The Dark Knight Rises.

Also, Franco and Hathaway were not that great of hosts.

Crap Oscars

AMPAS is so out of touch it's infuriating. The King's Speech is a glorified HBO movie, Melissa Leo gives the same performance in every one of her roles, Colin Firth's performance wasn't that spectacular, blah, blah, blah. The Awards people suck. The ONLY thing they got right was Christian Bale for Best Supporting. Hailee Steinfeld was robbed.

Um . . . dude, why act like your own opinions are unarguably the right ones? "Best" movies is a very subjective thing, and, honestly, I've never seen a straight-to-HBO movie anywhere near the level of King's Speech. As an actor, you have no idea what it takes to create the kind of convincing speech impediment Colin Firth gives us.

Melissa Leo doesn't give the same performance in every role. Compare her performance in "The Fighter" with her performance in "Welcome to the Rileys." That woman is an incredible actress.

Oh well, at least the Golden Schmoes were good.

Pretty good night for the most part. Just about everything went to the easily predicted winners. Still, some of them weren't right. They screwed up Supporting Actor (should've gone to Rush), Supporting Actress (should've gone to Steinfeld), Score (Inception or Dragon would have sufficed), and Song (Newman? Seriously? "I See the Light" was much better), but it was worth these small pains to see Social Network knocked off of its undeserved pillar of holiness. It was a decent film, but nowhere

It was a decent film, but nowhere near as good as The King's Speech or Inception. Glad to see the latter two ended up the big winners of the evening.

That being said, I have a feeling people are going to be complaining about this for a long time (like when Shakespeare in Love beat Saving Private Ryan).

...and yeah, I don't expect Franco and Hathaway to be invited back anytime soon for another round of bland hosting.

I hear you, man. The Social Network was definitely a good film, but nowhere near the masterpiece many claimed it to be. IMO, the best film of 2010 were definitely Inception, Toy Story 3, and The King's Speech.

Was Franco high?

I'm happy with all the acting wins, as well as those for the most the technical categories. I think picture and director should have gone to Social Network. King's Speech is a good film, but it was standard oscar bait and didn't match the more innovative Social Network (or Inception or Toy Story 3 for that matter).

Pretty good results...

Even though David Fincher was completely ass-fucked and both Franco & Hathway were awful as hosts, the winners this year were pretty great and I'm happy.

But seriously, 2010 was the year of Fincher and everyone knows it.

Does anyone honestly think The King's Speech deserved to win Best Picture? When deciding on a best picture winner not only should it be extremely well made but also memorable. Seriously best picture winners should be movies that will be looked back on in 20 years as classics. Is anyone even going to remember this movie in a year? I feel the same with The Hurt Locker. It was a good movie but will it go down as a classic? Hell no! Most people probably forgot about Hurt Locker already.

Final score:

King's Speech 4
Inception 4
Social Network 3

Not bad, there were actually some mild surprises for once.

I'm still in awe about SN winning original score. I didn't know hitting the piano with only 3 keys won you an award.

The award is rewarded to the Composer that creates an incredible accent to the movie and creates the right mood for scenes. Incase you don't know, its not about complexity, its about emotion..

Clearly you don't understand..

Man Inceptions cock must be red raw from all the suckjobs it's been getting.
Did Inception even have special effects?

Thank god for Nat!

She really deserved this, & I still remember in "The Professional" so well. I remember thinking what a babe she'd be when she was older.

I do not understand what was so great about "Social Network?"

I watched "SN" twice to see if I missed anything. It's a mediocre movie @ best. If "Fight Club" by Fincher came out today, it would get all sorts of noms. I'm sorry but "SN" is only receiving all of this hoopla because everyone loves Facebook. The only thing that was good about it was Jesse Eisenberg. Best Original score? Are you freiking kidding me? I don't even remember it, yet "Inceptions" is burned into my skull. Seriously WTF?

Not thrilled w/the opening. Does anyone else think Franco is a little too relaxed? As in he took a Lorezapam.
