I did want The Social Network to be the one to win big, but as soon as The King’s Speech won Best Director it was obvious. Really can’t believe Hooper won out over Fincher though, very surprising. The King’s Speech is certainly a more Oscar friendly movie, I guess I just thought they were going to go more for the comtemporary modern American classic that The Social Network has become. But at the end of the day, well done to The King’s Speech. I think James Franco and Anne Hathaway did a fine job presenting and all in all a interesting night with a couple of surprises.
