The 81st Annual Academy Awards were last night. I sort of watched it, but it started earlier than I thought and I was working most of time so I’m sure I missed a bunch.
I did, however, catch the camera cutting to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie while Jennifer Aniston and Jack Black were presenting on stage. Not too sure the point of that, other than to fuel the gossip fires.
Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner of the night; which came as no real surprise. The other non-surprise at the Oscars was Heath Ledger winning the Best Supporting Actor award for his role as the Joker in the Batman movie Dark Knight. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I haven’t seen Dark Knight but I don’t think Heath would have won if he was still alive. But that’s just me.
I didn’t see The Wrestler or Milk (yet) either, but I know I agree with Sean Penn winning the Oscar for Best Actor over Mickey Rourke.
Although I didn’t watch every moment of the Oscars on Sunday night, others did so there are lots of places for us to go to get the lowdown on the night.
