Colin Firth Takes Home Best Actor Oscar

For movie buffs, to not see The King’s Speech would be a sacrilege.

The competition in the category was really fierce.

* Jeff Bridges in “True Grit”
* Jesse Eisenberg in “The Social Network
* James Franco in “127 Hours”

    Colin Firth made Kamal Haasan look like a kid, in the movie. Responds:

    Well, we guess Kamal Haasan is good enough for Tamils. After all, they consider him the ne plus ultra of actors.

    The Tamil film industry is beyond salvage.
