All the King's Gold: Your 2011 Oscar Winners
Cue "The Long and Winding Road."
The marathon Academy Awards ceremony is over and the winners have been announced. "The King's Speech" rather predictably took home the Best Picture prize after racking up four wins, including Colin Firth's Best Actor win.
In the major categories, Tom Hooper picked up a Best Director, told us to listen to our mothers and touted the virtues of man-love. A pregant Natalie Portman landed the Best Actress for "Black Swan," and Melissa Leo picked up the Best Supporting Actress for "The Fighter," dropping an F-bomb in the process.
Christian Bale cracked his way to a Best Supporting Actor award, but forgot his wife's name in his acceptance speech. D'oh.
"Inception" picked up 4 wins, including Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects. "The Social Network" also had a great night, with 3 wins, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Original Score for Trent Reznor.
