All the songs nominated were lovely this year. I was especially moved by Gwenyth Paltrow's preformance from her movie Country Strong. I haven't seen that movie yet but it's now higher on my list!
I think I was too hard on my review of Inception. We went to Paris and the movie was filmed in places we had been. I should see it again!
The Winners this year were easy to predict. I correctly predicted 17 of the nominations. I usually always get the Best Supporting Actress winner wrong! It was great to see Kirk Douglas present the award to Melissa Leo!
Great to see Billy Crystal! It was neat the way they had Bob Hope hosting from years ago; Billy told a great story about meeting Bob Hope when he hosted years ago.
I saw the BAFTA Awards (held in London) for the first time this year. I thought it was brilliant! The Oscars this year were equally wonderful!
The Finale -
Enthusiastic preformance by the children (from New York). They sang Over the Rainbow. All the new Oscar winners came out and sang along at the end.
The 83rd Annual Academy Awards from 2010 will always be my favorite! I've been watching the Oscars every year since I was 10!
