Well, it has turned into a strange, strange night at the Oscars and we have had some surprises so far. A big one came in the Adapted Screenplay category when Up in the Air LOST, to Precious.
Also, The Hurt Locker swept the sound categories, which stunned a lot of people who thought it didn't deserve a sweep. That basically is a sure indicator of a sweep for The Hurt Locker.
Avatar did win Best Cinematography, though, and I would have definitely said there would have been a sweep had it lost out.
I am sort of half-watching the Oscars. I am basically watching a TV, a DVD player and streaming video on a computer screen right now, and that is basically my evening. Mainly, though, I am watching Entourage reruns at the moment.
It's turning into a really boring and overlong show. I will note that the "usual list of dead people" was particularly grim this year, given the young age and major prominence of a lot of the people on it. (Oh, and by the way, they totally forgot Farrah.)
They also got rid of showing the Best Songs. This show is really weird.
