The King’s Speech Crashes The Social Network: The 2011 Oscar Winners Are…


The 2011 Oscars were so predictable that even the upset was obvious. While the acting awards went to the same people they’ve been going to this whole season (Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Natalie Portman and Colin Firth must need a wall of shelves for their trophies by now), The King’s Speech beat longtime favorites The Social Network for Best Picture, which would have been a surprise if forecasters hadn’t seen the Weinstein Company’s promo efforts from a mile away, and if Tom Hooper‘s Best Director win over David Fincher didn’t telegraph the inevitable. But hey, there’s always the little awards, right? Watch VH1 News correspondent Janell Snowden talk to celebs on the red carpet and then see the full list of winners after the jump.
