Oh. Guess I had to be there.... Damn how many dance lessons must Hugh Jackman have taken for this. I guess we know what he was fitting in between his Wolverine acting...

I bet they've been figuring out how to do this speech for a while. Ledger is the most obvious winner of the night.

Matilda, we're sorry for the tragic loss of your father at such a young age and to make up for any trauma you might experience throughout your life because of it, here's this gold plated statue of a naked guy with a sword standing on top of a reel of film.

I think Man On Wire is very likely for this one. Nominations though:

The Betrayal
Encounters At The End Of The World
The Garden
Man On Wire
Trouble The Water

And the winner is.... Man On Wire


Oh, JackO beat me to it...

The only thing I'm not liking about these featurettes is that they're only showing clips from like four different movies each time.

Mr. Button is doing much better than I thought...I guess you're bound to pick up a couple when you're nominated in every single category.

And the nominees are:

Benjamin Button
The Dark Knight
Iron Man

[sigh] kinda knew that would be the result, it was my second choice, and can't really complain. Just want some more recognition for this film than Heath.

The Dark Knight for Sound Editing? Talk about undeserved. The sound editing for Wall-E was worked on years and made sound editing get recognized as an important part of filmmaking. But instead, the Academy gives it to the loud action movie.
