Oscars!

Who do you think will win Best Motion Picture? I'm going to say Social Network. But who knows. Just saw them three seconds ago win something with music.

And after, where you surprised about one or the other winning what they did?

I'll be disappointed if Winters Bone wins nothing. SO many good movies in best picture, I give my nod to Black Swan.

Man... I hated it. So many bad jokes. Disagreed with a lot of the choices. I better watch that movie that won Best Motion Picture. I swear, i'm gonna be so pissed if I dislike it.

I watched the spoilered movie you posted there... Its actually quite fun to watch and interesting too, although not an Oscar deserving film it is still a very good film to watch and enjoy.

It's a worthy winner, very good film, but i'd rather have seen it go to Social Network.

I don't think it'll stand the test of time and be one of those films people rave about in years to come.

Most of the winners were justified, but it's a shame so many great films came away so light on awards. Feel sorry for How to train your Dragon especially, as it's been pipped by Toy Story every single time. Any other year I think it'd have at least 1 shiny trophy to it's name.

yeah How to Train Your Dragon just came out at a bad time. Look in the past at how many icon films did not win Best Film, and how many films that people go, 'huh' have won.

I was never a big fan of the Oscars due to the problems it has such as the one Djinn24.

Ok I watched and liked Social Network but I never thought after seeing it, it would even be nominated for an Oscar.
What I am I missing why does everybody love this movie so much. The actoring was good the story was ok it all just added up as a pretty good movie to me, nothing to write home about.

I probably liked it more than I should because I wasn't expecting as much. I really only watched it on account of David Fincher being involved.

I thought the script was exceptional, and loved the cinematography. The acting was very good all round, and in the end it's a very compelling story.
