Natalie Portman Body Double Controversy

Freshly minted Best Actress Academy Award winner Natalie Portman is facing a bit of controversy from her role in Black Swan. Apparently, Portman, who played the slightly unstable dancer Nina in the film, used a body double for most of the complicated ballet scenes. American Ballet Theatre dancer Sarah Lane says that Portman only did about 5% of the dancing scenes and “I do want people to know that you cannot absolutely become a professional ballet dancer in a year and a half no matter how hard you work. I’ve been doing this for 22 years.” Click the image to enlarge.

Who did the bulk of the work- Natalie Portman....or a body double?

If this is in fact true, do you think Natalie still deserves her Best Actress Oscar?
