83rd Annual Academy Awards Winners

by Nicholas Robinson

Well, the Oscars was just a couple of days ago and it was much better than last year’s.  The hosts were actually funny, the speeches were cool, there was no break-dancing to original score and Justin Timberlake had an app on his phone that changed the background of the stage.  I had a great time live-blogging with the Film School Rejects staff and had a great record of 13/24 awards.  So without further ado…here are the winners of the 83rd Academy Awards.
