I didn't hear anything about Melissa Leo's self-promotion campaign
28 February 2011 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I only saw Melissa Leo in "The Fighter". Her character made me feel as if I was walking on eggshells, and so she certainly deserved her win.

As I understand it, a lot of people were irritated that the expected winners all won, and that James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted: the common meme is that their opening montage was funny but they fell flat afterwards. Well I liked their performance; it was especially cool when Franco appeared dressed as Marilyn Monroe.

I've seen very few of the nominees, so my judgment was biased, although I did consider "The King's Speech" the best choice. Movies that got totally snubbed include "Mother and Child", "The Good Heart", "Please Give", "Get Low" and "Fair Game".

All in all, I liked the show. Probably the best part of the broadcast was when Charles Ferguson, accepting his Oscar for "Inside Job" (about the causes of the financial crisis), noted that none of the people responsible for the crisis have gotten indicted.

Yeah, where was Anne Hathaway when Kirk Douglas was making movies?
