(Publisher’s Note: The 2011 Academy Award Winners are presented below, along with select relevant quotes from Courtney Enlow’s Oscar Live Blog)

  • Remember that shot right at the end of 127 Hours after Aaron’s been rescued and he’s at some kind of press conference and Franco plays it looking super confused and weird? That’s how he’s looked the whole show tonight.


    Art Direction and Set Design

    Alice and Wonderland

  • Now that piece of shit will forever get to sell itself as “the Academy Award-winning abortion Alice in Wonderland.” Grodes.



  • I’m sorry, THE APPLAUSE WAS CUTTING INTO YOUR TIME? Asshole. No one cares about your stupid award anyway.

    Best Supporting Actress

    Melissa Leo, The Fighter

    Best Animated Short

    The Lost Thing

    Best Animated Feature

    Toy Story 3

  • I wonder if non-TS3 people bothered getting dressed.

    Adapted Screenplay

    Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network

  • Aaron Sorkin: Decidedly less orange than he looked at the Globes, but still a touch overbronzed … Someone in the orchestra really fucking hated “Studio 60.”

    Original Screenplay

    David Seidler, The King’s Speech

  • I know that when something’s a lock, people inevitably don’t want it to win things, but I absolutely loved and adored The King’s Speech and want it to win everything. My second favorite movie of the year wasn’t nominated for a single thing, and I’m still bitter.

    Best Foreign Language Film

    In a Better World

    Best Supporting Actor

    Christian Bale, The Fighter

  • Bale wins! Despite being heavy in prep for his starring role in the upcoming “Gingerjesusbeard.”

    Best Original Score

    Trent Reznor, The Social Network

    Film Editing

    The Social Network

  • Fincher has looked super nervous during every single TSN win. Is there a bomb in one of the awards?

    Best Original Song

    Randy Newman, Toy Story

  • Randy Newman’s voice is like being smothered to death with gravy. I just want it all to stop … I should probably explain. You see, people like gravy. But no one likes drowning. So I don’t understand why people like Randy Newman. … It’s a weak metaphor. What I’m saying is Randy Newman sucks.

    Best Director

    Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech

  • Tom Hooper strongly resembles a young James Cameron. I wonder if Katherine gets a mean case of revertigo and just starts wailing on him backstage.

    Best Actress

    Natalie Portman, Black Swan

  • Darren Aronofsky’s mustache just bad touched me through the TV. And not in the good way.

    Best Actor

    Colin Firth, King’s Speech

  • Colin has used the words “sensation” and “stirring.” These are also things he inspires in my lady parts.

    Best Picture

    The King’s Speech


  • Well with that, I’m going to make like Anne’s sense of style and leave for the night. Thank each and every one of you for joining me on this journey through laughter, tears and awkward Justin Timberlakes. I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend my birthday or a better bunch of knuckleheads to share it with. Good night to you, and to these precious singing children!
