The Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 were presented Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center. The evening was hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway.
"The King's Speech," based on the true story of King George VI, following the Royal Monarch's quest to find his voice, was named Best Picture. (The film has its roots an unproduced play by the screenwriter.) Top acting honors went to Colin Firth for his performance in that aforementioned film, and Natalie Portman for her work in “Black Swan," with Melissa Leo and Christian Bale taking home the statuettes for their supporting roles in "The Fighter."
Here's a look at the star-studded evening:
