Aaand we're on! Finally!( 81st Academy Awards live-bloggingCollapse )
These were mostly predictable—I got 19 of 24 Oscars right (the ones I got wrong were Actor, Documentary Short, Live Action Short, Foreign Language and Sound Mixing, which is not too bad), which would certainly be a personal record if I'd bothered to keep track in the past few years.
got 15 right, plasticiner
got 13, wendybarrie_
As anyone could've said before the Oscars began, this was Slumdog Millionaire
's big night. The movie won 8 Oscars; Button
got 3 Oscars, all technical and therefore well-deserved; Milk
got two Oscars, both great; The Dark Knight
could've got more, but at least Ledger got his. The Duchess
, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
and Revolutionary Road
each got one.
I'm glad Kate Winslet got an Oscar, I really am, but she should've got it for any of her other films. For bloody instance, this year's Revolutionary Road
Also, Hugh Jackman did a brilliant job. I'm very glad—these Oscars were extremely interesting, and the format innovations were very interesting. *approves*!
