The 83rd Annual Academy Awards: List of Winners

See also

James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted last night's Oscar ceremony at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. To put it bluntly the show was boring. The winners were predictable and the hosts disappointed. All of the great Oscar moments came from the people accepting their awards and a few notable presenters. Billy Crystal and Kirk Douglas stole the show as well as Melissa Leo's accidental f-bomb and Colin Firth's articulate and endearing acceptance speech.

Even the fashion was relatively lackluster, with young Hailee Steinfeld knocking the usual fashionistas of their pedestals with a fresh and age appropriate dress by Marchesa. Nicole Kidman failed in Dior Couture as well as Marissa Tomei vintage couture Charles James gown.

Canadian entries in all categories were shut out of the winning and while local director, Denis Villeneuve did not end up taking home the award for Best Foreign Language Film hopefully the exposure will draw even more people to see his film, Incendies. Celine Dion sang “Smile” during the “In Memoriam” portion of the night. The Quebec singer looked amazing in Armani Prive after recently giving birth to twins.
