Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars

Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27, '11, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: “I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet.”

Well, if you're lucky.

Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway.

Charles Ferguson Audrey MarrsCharles Ferguson and Audrey Marrs: Oscar winners for 'Inside Job.'

'Inside Job' Academy Award winners Charles Ferguson and Audrey Marrs

Pictured above are Inside Job director-co-producer Charles Ferguson and co-producer Audrey Marrs on the 2011 Oscars' Red Carpet. Inside Job won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The film takes a look at the causes behind the global economic meltdown that began in 2008, disrupting the livelihoods – and lives – of hundreds of millions of people. Greed and corruption among the moneyed elite (in addition to public apathy, stupidity, and ignorance) were the key culprits. Matt Damon is the documentary's narrator.

Besides Charles Ferguson's Inside Job, this year's Best Documentary Feature nominees were the following:

  • Lucy Walker and Angus Aynsley's Waste Land.
  • Josh Fox and Trish Adlesic's GasLand.
  • Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger's Restrepo.
  • Banksy and Jaimie D'Cruz's Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Jeremy Renner on the Oscar Red Carpet

Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner greets Scarlett Johansson at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27, '11, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Renner's Best Supporting Actor nomination was for Ben Affleck's ensemble crime drama The Town. He was the film's only cast member to be shortlisted for this year's Oscar.

A year ago, Renner was a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Kathryn Bigelow's Iraq War drama The Hurt Locker. He lost to Jeff Bridges in Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart. This year, Renner lost to Christian Bale in David O. Russell's The Fighter.

Scarlett Johansson wasn't nominated for anything, but she and Matthew McConaughey presented the Academy Award for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing. As expected, Christopher Nolan's sci-fi adventure Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, won in both categories.

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai on the Academy Awards' Red Carpet

Pictured above are Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Two years ago, Danny Boyle's Anglo-Indian-American co-production Slumdog Millionaire became not only one of the season's biggest sleeper hits, but also the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. Dev Patel and Freida Pinto starred.

Curiously, some have complained that Slumdog Millionaire was just a less interesting rehash of higher-quality Bollywood musicals and dramas that have received relatively little play outside South Asian communities around the globe.

Justin TimberlakeJustin Timberlake on Oscars' Red Carpet.

Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards

The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake is pictured above as he arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, '11, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender.

The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas,[1] who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.)

As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann's The Lost Thing. The Best Animated Feature was, as expected, Lee Unkrich's Pixar blockbuster Toy Story 3.

And not coincidentally, in a few months Oscar presenters Timberlake and Kunis will be seen together in Will Gluck's romantic comedy Friends with Benefits.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross among 'The Social Network' Oscar winners

As for the widely acclaimed David Fincher-directed The Social Network, it won three Academy Awards:

  • Best Adapted Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin.
  • Best Film Editing for Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall.
  • Best Original Score for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Trent Reznor's Oscar win was one of the best received of the evening, at least based on social media reaction.

Justin Timberlake movies

Formerly known as a member of the hugely popular boy band NSYNC, Justin Timberlake has been quite busy on the big screen. Below is a short list of Timberlake movies.*
