Last night's Academy Awards were funny and glamorous and, sure, a little bit boring and cheesy—but that's the Oscars, right? A list of the official winners of the 2011 Oscars is at the end of this post. But first, we're giving a few awards of our own.
ACADEMY AWARDS 2011
2011 Oscars here we come! We've watched the movies, studied the 83rd Academy Award nominations and created two lists. First predictions for who will win the Academy Award in each of eight categories, and who would win the 2011 Oscar if YourTango stuffed the envelopes. Our criteria? The most realistic, relatable, helpful and smartest portrayals of romantic relationships. Let us know if you agree with us and who YOU would choose to win the 2011 Academy Awards.
Every actress dreams of bagging that gorgeous golden Oscar statuette, but if the Best Actress Curse is to be believed, scoring an Academy Award means tanking a relationship (think Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, whose relationships fell apart within a year of their Best Actress wins). If the curse is real, can we then predict who will win the 2011 Best Actress by looking at whose love life is least stable? We hope not!
