Did Oscar Get It Right With The King’s Speech?

What surprised you the most about tonight’s
Academy Awards? The fact that Christian Bale teared up during his acceptance speech, that Melissa Leo dropped the F-word during hers, or that The King’s Speech took home both Best Actor and Movie? (Although if that surprised you, you must not have been following the buzz, which favored both by a sizable margin.) Chances are better that you weren’t too surprised overall, since viewers actually were mostly on target in AMC’s online Oscar poll, even if Hailee Steinfeld didn’t take home the Best Supporting Actress award for True Grit. But what do you think now that the results have been announced? Did Oscar get it right? View the complete list of winners after the jump, then let us know who you think got snubbed in the comments section below. (Or vote in our still-open Oscar polls.)
