A changing of the guard a youth movement with hosts, still it was hail to the king!
This year's Oscars "The 83rd Annual Academy Awards" was a pretty pleasant event to view really the awards handed out produced no surprises, yet a treat to the eyes was seeing the beautiful and talented Anne Hathaway as a co host. Actually the beauty changed dresses and outfits about 7 or 8 different times! The academy certainly went with a change of pace nabbing young talent to host as the beautiful actress Anne Hathaway and jack of all trades actor James Franco both sparkled and shined as hosts! The duo were both funny and witty with catch fire sayings and their skits and monologue that opened the show was in top form! As much of the show's montage was highly enjoyable and entertaining.
As for the awards they went as expected really no surprises as clearly Colin Firth already had the best actor trophy wrapped up and he accepted gracefully like the professional he is. And in a royal and rightful manner the picture that Colin starred in "The King's Speech" was crowned best picture holding off the youthful picture "The Social Network" and best drama ensemble "The Fighter". And as expected Natalie Portman won best actress for her wicked and emotionally raw turn as a conflicted ballet dancer in the thrilling drama "Black Swan", hopefully many more awards will be for miss Portman.
A few funny moments were Melissa Leo's F bomb after her deserved win for best supporting actress, and the worn down and old legend Kirk Douglas trying his best to present the award. And as always seeing clips and footage from old Oscars and Hollywood history is a treat. The show certainly entertained with it's typical gold and sparkle as things in Hollywood change as more youth is filling movies still the Oscars still reward the best films and people as it was hail to the king! And it was a great eye treat watching the beautiful and talented Anne Hathaway be a co host it wasn't the best Oscars, but it was entertaining and it did it's job getting all the awards to the right people who deserved to win the most.
