83rd Annual Academy Awards Winners

Filed under

-s

Well, I've kinda lost a lot of interest in the movie world this past year. I still watch movies occasionally, but couldn't get too excited about the Academy Awards. Nevertheless, since it's a tradition around here to cover some of the winners, here are the big categories.

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo, The Fighter

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, The Fighter

Best Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King's Speech

Best Animated Movie: Toy Story 3

Best Director: Tom Hooper, The King's Speech

Best Script: David Seidler, The King's Speech

Best Picture of the Year: The King's Speech (for a total of 4 wins)

I saw Black Swan which I thought was eerily haunting and thought provoking. I didn't see a lot of good reviews of it, but I liked it. I didn't see The Fighter. But I did see The King's Speech. I thought it was moving and inspiring. I liked it a lot. I saw Toy Story 3, which was almost as cute as 1 and 2.

You can find the full list of nominees and winners at oscars.org.

More Mandriva Eulogies

  • Good-bye, Mandriva!
    I think that it is sad that the Mandriva star twinkles no more in the OS universe, but it is good that other distros can continue with its legacy: Mageia, OpenMandriva Lx and, up to a certain extent, PCLinuxOS.
  • Finally! It's the year of Linux on the desktop TITSUP
    Mandriva, a French purveyor of desktop Linux, is being wound up, after becoming totally incapable of supporting usual performance (TITSUP), financially at least. The liquidation notice suggests the company's 2013 was around €600,000 and that the company has between 10 and 19 staff.
  • Goodbye, Mandriva, Thank You for the Mandriva Linux OS
    It is with sadness in our hearts that we inform you today, May 27, about the termination of the French Mandriva company, which is currently in the process of being liquidated, according to a notice posted on the societe.com website.
  • A Linux company that spent 17 years competing with Windows is officially over
    It also had some success in Malaysia. But by 2012, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, a situation that had happened several times since its early days, in 1998. It was saved for a few more years by Jean-Manuel Croset, who joined as COO in 2011 and soon after became CEO.
