Here's The Best Thing About Oscars 2011, Besides Colin, Natalie & Melissa Leo's F-Bomb

By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

 

If you wonder what people inside the industry are thinking tonight, get this: The 83rd Annual Oscar presentation was very... independent. In fact, while many derided the indy-minded Spirit Awards for cold weather and water-logged press tents, the Oscars were roundly applauded for their brave indie choices... warm green rooms, and great Wolfgang Puck food, of course.

Here's proof from our friends at IFTA:
