[QUOTE=molds13;232234]Same here. Well...in terms of the acting, I couldn't really disagree with any of those (Firth, Portman, Bale and Leo are favorites to win the Oscars IMO) but best picture? I am shocked Inception didn't get it, although a lot of its buzz has died down recently. Did Inception even win anything? And was True Grit not nominated at all??[/QUOTE] I don't think Inception ended up winning anything. But it should have won Best Screenplay. As far as Screenplay is concerned... Inception > Social Network (in my opinion).
[QUOTE=molds13;232243]Actually, most of the articles I read said that [B]The King's [/B][B]Speech was the favorite.[/B][/QUOTE] Rightfully so.
[QUOTE=Adrian!!!!!!;232244]Same here, I agree with the acting. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Inception it still deserved Best picture way more than Social Network. IMO, Social Network was by far the worst of the movies nominated for Best Picture....[/QUOTE] For drama? Yes. For best picture overall (including comedy)? Nooooo. Alice in Wonderland was much much worse. Although apparently Angelina Jolie laughed when she found out The Tourist was nominated.
[QUOTE=Adrian!!!!!!;232246]Rightfully so.[/QUOTE] Have you seen The King's Speech? I've heard that Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were absolutely fantastic in it.
When they listed the nominees for Best Motion Picture Comedy, it was a no brainer The Kids Are All Right would win. It was the only good movie of the bunch.

But Molds you said you didn't watch The Social Network so how can you say it may be the worst in Best Drama. Plus judging by the screenplay, acting, and the type of person you seem to be like on vevmo I would have assumed you would have really liked The Social Network, but I'm wrong I see hahaha...it's seriously THE best movie because I could connect with it, like so many people who have dreams/aspirations.
By the way, Katey Segal has really really really good doctors.

Alice in Wonderland was a joke... goodness I really miss the older Tim Burton films, the classics. Now he just puts Johnny Depp ( Nothing against Johnny) in all of his movies and makes some circus show, which is getting really old.
[QUOTE=Buck05;232250]When they listed the nominees for Best Motion Picture Comedy, it was a no brainer The Kids Are All Right would win.

I didn't feel that way about Inception, or The King's Speech, or Black Swan, or The Fighter. Those are all movies I would probably pay to see in a theater...unlike The Social Network.

I even went to see Alice in Wonderland (and in 3D!) based on Johnny Depp and HBC and walked away thoroughly disappointed. Unfortunately, his classics seem to trump anything he makes now. Not to mention, Burton totally took one of my favorite movies ever (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and proceeded to scare the ever-loving crap out of me with that remake. Just awful.

True I agree. At first I really wanted to see it, but lost interest quickly until I got the DVD and realized how great it really was. The other movies were great as well, but I just connected with The Social Network. I also love the movies witty and sarcastic comedy lol. Yes Tim Burton keeps making all these movies that don't compare to his old work! Comedy movies were sad this year, but Easy A should have been nominated!
I'm glad Natalie Portman won for Black Swan... she totally deserved it.
[QUOTE=Adrian!!!!!!;232265]I'm glad Natalie Portman won for Black Swan... she totally deserved it.[/QUOTE] She's like Sandra Bullock this year. Favorite to win everything. I'll be shocked if she doesn't win the Oscar which is great because she is an amazing actress.
OK producer...I'm going to watch The Social Network right now. I'll let you know my thoughts.

Yeahhhhhhhhhhh hope you really like it!
Inception getting shot down is just sad...I was expecting it not to win Best Picture.. but no Best Director or Best Screenplay? The Social Network is a great movie, I'm a huge Sorkin fan from all his TV Series (yes, that includes Studio 60, and I won't apologize for it) but Inception was the only movie last year that made me keep talking about it weeks after I saw it, and tell anyone who ask, "Yes, that is a movie, you NEED to see." I think its downfall is going to be a result of the negative backlash consequence of the initial positive overhype. :(
Molds, Social Network's not bad. I actually just saw it last night and enjoyed it. But Inception was better.

Inception was amazing, but I always knew it wasn't going to win because of the "blockbuster" concept. It seems like movies that the general public LOVE the critics/press/academy members seem to vote against. Another issue was the summer release. It would have had a better shot if it was released in October-December.
[QUOTE=tatertots;232258]That was such a joke category. What about Get Him to the Greek, Easy A, Kick-***, Scott Pilgrim? Those were all much better than the others nominated.[/QUOTE] Scott Pilgrim definitely deserved a win. That movie, visually alone, was one of the best that I saw all year and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is going to be around for a long time. I wish Michael Cera would go away, though. Also, Robert Downey Jr. stole it when he presented. I high fived him from my livingroom. I love that Peg Bundy won a Golden Globe and the shy girl from My So Called Life did, too. That and the guy who died third in the original Nightmare on Elm Street is doing really well for himself these days. Don't get me started on Trent Reznor, though. No way can he pull off another Nine Inch Nails album after that acceptance speech.
[QUOTE=molds13;232249]Have you seen The King's Speech? I've heard that Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were absolutely fantastic in it.[/QUOTE] Yes, it was really really great and both Carter and Firth were absolutely amazing in it . That's why I had no problem with Firth beating out Mark Wahlberg ( He deserved it a lot too though, no lie) and winning tonight for his performance in it.
What did everyone think of Ricky Gervais? I thought his jokes were great but the crowd didnt seem as receptive as last year.
Also, what was said between Christian Bale and Robert De niro ? I didn't get to see it. And what was with De Niro's acceptance speech ? Did anyone hear it ? Edit : Nevermind on the De niro/Bale thing, I already found out.
