Outstanding Ensemble Acting in a Motion Picture: The King's Speech
Reaction: Another huge blow to The Social Network's momentum. Actors are the biggest voting block in the Academy, so this award means quite a bit. The King's Speech seems destined to win the Best Picture Oscar at this point.
Outstanding Male Actor in a Leading Role: Colin Firth, The King's Speech
Reaction: Yawn. No surprise here. Great speech by Firth. "I'd like to thank security for letting me in the building."
Outstanding Female Actor in a Leading Role: Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Reaction: Annette Bening needed to win here to still be in the race. Portman's now officially a lock for the Oscar.
Outstanding Male Actor in a Supporting Role: Christian Bale, The Fighter
Reaction: Another key win for The Fighter. Bale's first Oscar nomination will result in his first Oscar win. He deserves it. The guy is a true chameleon. The real Dicky Eklund joined Bale on stage. Great moment.
Outstanding Female Actor in a Supporting Role: Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Reaction: The Oscar is in the bag. There's a lot of love for the cast of The Fighter, and I wouldn't be surprised if it pulls a Best Ensemble win.
