Amongst all the pomp, circumstance, and glamor, the Oscars were presented for the 83rd time by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The major winners were:
*The King's Speech: Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Colin Firth), Best Original Screenplay (David Seidler)
*Natalie Portman for Best Actress in The Black Swan
*Christian Bale and Melissa Leo for Best Supporting Performers in The Fighter
*Toy Story 3 for Best Animated Picture and Best Original Song, "We Belong Together" by Randy Newman; and
*The Social Network for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Musical Score.

Meanwhile, the night before saw what others considered the WORST from Hollywood with the presentation of the 31 Golden Raspberry Awards, more commonly known as the 'Razzies'.
Amongst the "winners" were:
*The Last Airbender for Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actor (Jackson Rathbone) Worst Screenplay, Worst Director (both M. Night Shyamalan), and Worst (Eye-Gouging) Use of 3-D, a new category.
*Sex and the City 2 for Worst Actresses (a tie amongst all the female leads), Worst Prequel/Remake/Ripoff and/or Sequel, and the entire cast for Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble
*Ashton Kutcher for Worst Actor; and
*Jessica Alba for Worst Supporting Actress

Remember though folks, we at The Free Choice E-zine are only reporting the winners after the fact and had nothing to do with the respective outcomes.
