And The Oscar Goes to...

TRENT REZNOR!! Unbelievable. All those years we rocked out to Nine Inch Nails we NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS thought Trent would be up for an Oscar and actually win! Trent wrote the music for The Social Network, one of the only Oscars for that movie. Awesome!!

James Franco totally sucked. We are so disappointed with him. He looked worse than stoned, he looked almost dead or corpse like. It was like he had the Peter Brady Syndrome, so when the red light came on he froze like a deer in headlights. TERRIBLE! His only good joke was about Charlie Sheen, who totally doesn't deserve to be mentioned at all. Anne Hathaway did her best but without her co-host helping out the entire program was just horrible. She sings pretty good though. It was great when she made fun of Hugh Jackman. Otherwise, the duo failed in every way. So sad!

The acceptance speeches were god awful, too. Except for Christian Bale for Best Supporting Actor. His speech was awesome. And Rick Baker winning Best Makeup for The Wolfman. That guy is a class act all the way. So nice! The Wolfman is a decent movie too by the way. Benecio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. You can't go wrong with Anthony Hopkins...ever. He should have been there last night.

The stage was nice. That's about it. The show was dull and lifeless. Oh James, why did you let us down?!

Matthew McConaughey looked great as a presenter as did Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin. Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz and Mila Kunis were hands down the best dressed actresses.

Best presenters of the night were Russell Brand and Helen Mirren for Best Foreign Film. They were great.

Kirk Douglas. A legend. A movie Icon. In his heyday, hell he was Spartacus! They should have left it at that. We're not going to say more. We just can't.

The Oscar winners we are happy about include CHRISTIAN BALE finally getting an Oscar. Forget The Fighter, for which he won, have you ever seen 3:10 to Yuma, The Machinist, Reign of Fire, Rescue Dawn, The Prestige, Terminator: Salvation or American Psycho? He is THE best actor of our generation.

Natalie Portman deserves it for Black Swan, but remember her movie debut in The Professional with one of our favorite actors, Jean Reno? Or what about V for Vendetta? She killed in that and should have gotten the nod that year. That's one of our favorite movies of all time.

Colin Firth, whatever. He's about as exciting as watching paint dry. Mark Wahlberg didn't even get the nom and if he did, he should have won. Melissa Leo proves once again, she has no class. We can't stand her.

Tom Hooper for Director? Are you kidding? Chris Nolan should have won for Inception. He's clearly one of the best directors out there. What did Tom Hooper have to direct, The King's Speech...paaleeese!
