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?
