0 The 83rd Annual Academy Awards

I was so in awe of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan but I did not stutter in shock when The King’s Speech bagged four Oscars including the Best Motion Picture recognition in the just-ended 83rd Annual Academy Awards.
This year’s results are generally pleasing and somehow expected: My love Colin Firth and my favorite preggy Natalie Portman were named best actor and best actress—though it disappoints me that Geoffrey Rush did not take home the award that he truly deserves (sorry, Christian Bale).It is beyond doubt that this year’s Oscars is not one of the most glamorous in the Academy’s history but James Franco and Anne Hathaway managed to convey their enough share of nitrous oxide to keep the night alive.
