Wow, today is a day of ties! After a thrilling India-England Cricket match that ended up in a tie – The Kings Speech and Inception were viewers favorite on Popcorncousins! There was a close competition between the two and the final result as when I updated them was a TIE, thanks to a last minute vote! The winners had 39% votes each leaving little room for others! Its a matter of waiting a few hours now to see the results at the Oscars!

And that breaks the tie!

WINNER: THE KING’S SPEECH

Again, there seems to be little doubt about who deserves to win the best actress award – with a whopping 78%, Natalie Portman was a clear winner for Black Swan.

WINNER: NATALIE PORTMAN – BLACK SWAN

BEST DIRECTOR

PopcornCousins Voted Winner                                               And the Oscar goes to…

 

What I expected to be a tough decision didn’t seem that hard after all! David Fincher, director of The Social Network raked in 61% of the votes!

Tom Hooper beats them all!

WINNER: TOM HOOPER – THE KING’S SPEECH

ANIMATED FEATURE FILM

PopcornCousins Voted Winner                                               And the Oscar goes to…

Close competition again – Toy Story 3, with 52% of the votes was not way too ahead of the How to Train your Dragon.

WINNER: TOY STORY 3

MUSIC – ORIGINAL

PopcornCousins Voted Winner                                               And the Oscar goes to…

Tough one! As much as I would like ARR to win for 127 Hours, and even though he won the maximum votes (39% of them), he seems to have tough competition from Inception and The Social Network. I feel another favorite could be How to Train Your Dragon, although Powell did not receive too many votes! I must mention that my high hopes for ARR are in the Original Song  Category!

WINNER: TRENT REZNOR AND ATTICUS ROSS – SOCIAL NETWORK

And now, hold your breath!

THE OSCAR GUESS-QUIZ WINNER IS…

With 5 correct answers, its Vinod Sheshadri! Congratulations, Vinod!

Vinod, please give you acceptance speech! 🙂
