The 83rd annual Academy Awards, hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway, didn’t offer up many surprises, aside from Melissa Leo’s dropping the f-bomb in her Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech. Everything else went pretty much according to plan, with The King’s Speech ruling the night, taking away Best Actor, Best Director, and the coveted Best Picture.
