There weren’t too many surprises at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards outside of the fact that Zoe Saldana’s stylist let her leave the house like that.
Mo’Nique took home the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role with a powerful speech and Precious walked away with the adapted screenplay Oscar. Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Inglourious Basterds.
Avatar took home the technical awards such as Best Visual Effects and Art Direction and the booming of The Hurt Locker earned Best Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Best Original Screenplay.
We loved the presentation of genuine praise for the Best Actor and Best Actress nominees by their peers especially Oprah praising Gabourey Sidibe (although not cool on giving away the ending to your movie Peter Saarsgard.) Jeff Bridges took the Best Actor accolade. Is it just me or did Morgan Freeman look sad when they were reading the names, like he knew that he wasn’t getting the award again. Sandra Bullock took the Best Actress award as expected and even she didn’t look surprised.
Kathryn Bigelow made history as the first woman to win the award for
Best Director and for kicking your ex-husbands ass in front of
Hollywood. Twice. The Hurt Locker beat out Avatar and the eight other
nominated films for Best Picture.
The full list of winners is after the jump.
