'The King's Speech' Takes Top Prize at 2011 Oscars

There weren't many upsets at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards as 'The King's Speech' took home the top prize for Best Picture last night.

Colin Firth earned the Best Actor Oscar for the King working to overcome a debilitating stammer and Natalie Portman finally got the Best Actress Oscar she had been dreaming of for playing a tortured ballerina in 'Black Swan'.

"This is insane and I truly, sincerely wish that the prize tonight was to get to work with my fellow nominees. I'm so in awe of you," said Portman, who seemingly thanked everyone from her cast to the director "who gave me my first job when I was 11 years old."

'The King's Speech' was coming in with 12 nominations. It tied 'Inception' with four Oscars, including Best Director for first-time nominee Tom Hooper and Best Original Screenplay for David Seidler. 'The Social Network' won three awards to trail slightly behind, including Best Adapted Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin and Best Original Score for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Sorkin joked that the Oscar meant that he may finally be able to get some respect from this daughter's pet guinea pig.

'Toy Story 3' was predictably named 'Animated Feature Film' but that's just the kind of night it was -- except for 'The Fighter's Melissa Leo's F-bomb.
