83rd Academy Awards poster.jpgIn case you missed it, the Oscar’s took place last night in Hollywood, California.

Also know as the Academy Awards, the Oscars are presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS)  and honor the year’s best movies (2010).

This year is the 83rd edition of the Oscars.

Now my favorite move of 2010 was Toy Story 3 but my vote did not matter much because it was The King’s Speech that took home the most awards (4).

I guess I better take my wife on a date and go see The King’s Speech.
