83rd Annual Academy Award Winners [Live-Blog]

Football has the Super Bowl, baseball has the World Series, soccer has the World Cup and movies have the Academy Awards. Each year, Hollywood's schedule more or less culminates with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences handing out Oscars for the year's best films and Sunday, for the 83rd straight time, it happened again. Hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway helped some of the most famous actors and actresses in the world hand out the hardware for the best of 2010.

Leading the pack with twelve total nominations was The King's Speech, followed by True Grit with ten, Inception and The Social Network with eight, The Fighter with seven, 127 Hours with six, Black Swan and Toy Story 3 with five and The Kids Are all Right and Winter's Bone with four. And those just so happen to be the 10 films nominated for Best Picture.

Did your favorite film take home an Oscar? Or was the Academy predictably predictable? After the jump, we list all of your Oscar winner.

Here is the complete list of winners, along with commentary. [Note: Comments happened in real time.]


Black Swan

The Fighter


The Kids Are All Right

The King's Speech

127 Hours

The Social Network

Toy Story 3

True Grit

Winter's Bone

Commentary: The best part of the night could have been Steven Spielberg coming out to the Jurassic Park score. That and the fact that the montage showed the end of all of the movies. But, of course, the Oscar goes to The King's Speech winning four of its 12 nominations.


Javier Bardem, Biutiful

Jeff Bridges, True Grit

Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network

Colin Firth, The King's Speech

James Franco, 127 Hours

Commentary: The biggest slam dunk of the night, odds wise. Still, an amazing performance and well-deserved both for this film and for A Single Man last year.


Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right

Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole

Jennifer Lawrence, Winter's Bone

Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

Commentary: A ravishing performance that made the movie, congratulations Padme. Hope Luke and Leia come out okay. And it's awesome that you gave Luc Besson a shout out.


Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan

David O. Russell, The Fighter

Tom Hooper, The King's Speech

David Fincher, The Social Network

Joel and Ethan Coen, True Grit

Commentary: Noooooo! David Fincher, who has such a great pedigree and incredible resume, loses to the guy who makes one good movie. Boo.

The Fighter Paramount Pamela Martin

The King's Speech (The Weinstein Company) Tariq Anwar

127 Hours (Fox Searchlight) Jon Harris

The Social Network (Sony Pictures Releasing) Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter

John Hawks, Winter's Bone

Jeremy Renner, The Town

Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech

Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right
