The 83rd Annual Academy Awards

They wanted to cater to the younger demographic audience so the organizers decided to get not one but two young stars to anchor the creme of all awards, The Oscars.

Anne Hathaway who had too many wardrobe changes was too gigglish to be taken seriously. While James Franco was too serious and looked like he would pass out from the stressful pressure of co-hosting the show. But at least Anne made an effort to appear as if she was enjoying herself, unlike James Franco who was also a nominee in the Best Actor category for "127 Hours", he was so boring.

But I persevered to watch the rather dull show. I watched the elaborate productions numbers. I admired the lavish set designs. I cheered when my favorites won. I paid close attention to the acceptance speeches. I was really invested in the whole show because for once (in a long while) I was actually able to watch most of the films nominated in several categories.

I've seen The King's Speech and Black Swan. Impressed with Colin and Natalie. :) The film editing done for The Social Network is unbeatable.

For some strange reason, "The Social Network" doesn't appeal to me at all. So I didn't and haven't watch it.
