'The Kings Speech', 'Inception', 'Black Swan', 'The Social Network' were among the biggest winners at the 83rd Academy Awards held Sunday in Los Angeles, Calif.
Although the Hollywood's biggest night only managed to throw very few surprises, the Oscars did not fail to impress thanks to James Franco and Anne Hathaway, who brought the entertainment factor, besides the accidental F-bombs, references to drugs and of course some good old humor targeted at the Academy.
The Oscars night also put an end to the raging 'The King's Speech' Vs 'The Social Network' debate. The Facebook drama, which was initially the favorite to win the Oscar for Best Movie, was awoken to the competition from The King's Speech at the SAG awards. The British monarchy saga won the best-actor trophy for Colin Firth, besides claiming the prize for best ensemble cast, the guild's equivalent of the best picture Oscar.
At the Oscars, 'The King's Speech' took home key honors while 'The Social Network' only managed to match the competitor in terms of the number of awards. 'The King's Speech' won the academy award for 'Best Motion Picture of the year,' 'Achievement in Directing,' 'Original screenplay,' and 'Performance by an actor in a leading role.' 'The Social Network' took home Oscars for 'Achievement in Film Editing,' 'Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures,' and 'Adapted Screenplay.'
Among the other movies which fared well at the Oscars were: 'Inception', Toy Story 3', 'The Fighter' and 'Alice in Wonderland'.
