Despite rumblings from many a commentator about maybe Colin Firth not getting an Oscar, or Natalie Portman being pipped at the post by Annette Benning, in the end the Oscar evening went as predictably as you could imagine with just about everyone predicting all the major winners.
Colin Firth and Natalie Portman got their statues, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (both for The Fighter) got awarded. Maybe the most unpredictable award for the night was best film and director, most thought that The Social Network and its director David Fincher might clinch it, but The Kings Speech and director Tom Hooper took home the glory.
Toy Story 3 deservedly gained the best animated feature Oscar and in maybe a surprise move Banks diod not get the best documentary Oscar, so no stunt appearance, instead that went to Inside Job, a film from director Charles Ferguson about the financial crisis of 2008.
In all I suppose it was a predictable night, but one where all the Oscars went to deserved winners, something which rarely happens. The awards season is now over, a season which I used to get very excited about, and although I still look at the winners with interest I don't get nearly as excited as I did 10 years ago, maybe Oscar is no longer relevant?
