oscars 2011 winners.Award Ceremonies to the many of you that may or may not follow my tumblr or twitter, you may not have known how psycho i was going over the whole the king's speech > the social network ordeal. Honestly, i dont understand and i dont think ill ever understand why oh why did the kings speech ever win best picture and best director over david finchers masterpiece. did the academy think that finchers upcoming rendition of the girl with the dragon tattoo would be just as good that his third time would be it? i dont know but all i gotta say is that from its editing, music, acting, direction, was just simply perfect.
and judging by my predictions, its sad to say but i got owned. i got half of these right and the other half were just way off. im honestly so sad about fincher getting robbed of his oscar. he deserves to have a little gold man in his hand too! maybe next year or maybe never. i just have to remember that fellini, kubrick, hitchcock, or bergman never won an academy. the oscars of 2011 was just bullshit. i guess caucasian people have prevailed once again. the kings speech is such a trivial and redundant piece of work. while the cinematography was breathtaking, the story! the story was a snooooooozefest. k fine, im done shit talking...
