Who is Best Actor for 2011? The Oscars were aired live on TV tonight, and there was much chatter over who the award for would go too. With so much great talent, it must have been a tough decision, but there can only be one winner.

The 2011 Oscar Nominations included, Javier Bardem for his role in the movie Biutiful. Jeff Bridges was nominated True Grit. Jesse Eisenberg for the film The Social Network. Of course Colin Firth was nominated for playing King George VI, in The King’s Speech. Last but not least, James Franco is nominated portraying trapped hiker, Aron Raiston in 127 Days. With all this great talent there will surely be some disappointed fans upon learning their favorite was not selected.

Last year’s Academy award winner for Best Actress, Sandra Bullock, introduced each of the nominees with a brief speech about each actor. Bullock, who always has a witty sense of humor joked that Jesse Eisenberg from The Social Network still hasn’t accepted her friend request. Hop to it Jesse!

So back to business. Who took home the Best Actor Oscar? That would be Colin Firth for The King’s Speech. It seems the majority were in favor of Firth taking home the Oscar tonight, and why wouldn’t they? His performance was fantastic!
