Oscar 2011: The winners

Best Picture – The Artist
Best Director –  Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
Best Actress –  Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Best Actor –  Jean Dujardin, The Artist
Best Supporting Actress –  Octavia Spencer, The Help
Best Supporting Actor –  Christopher Plummer, Beginners


 My happiness at getting twenty out of 24 correct (which has to be a personal record for me) is mitigated by my disappointment at seeing Viola Davis lose, but then again, there's no real shame in losing to Meryl Streep, is there? Still, the injustice of having only one black woman win a Best Actress Oscar remains, and now that we know the demographics of the Academy, at least we have a better idea of what to expect the next time this happens. And whether she has a little gold man or not, the whole world now knows what kind of actress Davis is.


Sheesh. I went 20-for-24. I would've liked a little surprise at least. I guess Dragon Tattoo winning editing is perhaps the biggest surprise.... maybe? Possibly?


Eh. I'm just glad it's all over.
