Here we have photographs of the stars arriving at this years Oscars and a list of the winners. Notable is The King’s Speech winning for Best Picture, Best Director, Best original screenplay and Best Actor.

I am pleased that Inception also did well, especially so as Science Fiction films tend not to do that well in the Oscars. It also got 4 Oscars but these where on the technical side.
