For those of you who missed the awards like I did, here is a list of the winners of some of the awards:
Best Picture: The Hurt Locker
Actor: Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart
Actress: Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
Supporting Actress: Mo'Nique in Precious: Based on the novel, 'Push' by Sapphire.
Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds
Directing: Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker
Original Screenplay: Mark Boal for the Hurt Locker
Animated Feature Film: Up
Documentary Feature: The Cove
I'm very happy Sandra Bullock and Mo'Nique won. I loved both of the movies these women were in. I haven't seen Crazy Heart, nor Inglourious Basterds, so I didn't mind those winners. I loved Up and was very happy it won for best animated feature film. Disney's The Princess and the Frog was alright, but I felt Up blew it out of the water.
I was very shocked The Hurt Locker beat out Avatar for best picture because that film has created buzz since its opening. I have never even heard of The Hurt Locker prior to the awards (shameful, I know). However, now I really want to see it! I'm also very happy for Kathryn Bigelow for not only being the first woman to win Best Director, but she's James Cameron's ex-wife! Isn't revenge so sweet!?! What ex-wife wouldn't want to beat out her famous-director-ex-husband at (of all awards shows) THE OSCARS!
Kudos to her and all the winners!
