Tonight was a great night for Hollywood as the The 82nd Annual Academy Awards were performed and the winners announced. There were a lot of surprising and predictable winners tonight but the main winner tonight would be the film directed by Kathryn Bigelow, "Hurt Locker". She also walked away with best director, a first for women everywhere!
I personally was predicting Avatar to come in first place, especially with it being one of the highest grossing movies of all time, however, it didn't leave empty handed.
I love this award show for the way that they announced leading actor and actress nominations by having an entertainer describe their role prior to the announcement of the winner. And tonight Sandra Bullock walked away with best actress, and Monique with best supporting actress.
I tend to tune into the Academy Awards every year to see what everyone is wearing, to see the winners, and most importantly to see the reactions of those in the audience when someone wins. It was a humourous night with Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin hosting the show, and they both did a great job! The show did run extremely long but they made humour out of it and all in all it was a great awards show.
The newspaper and tabloids will be running for days now on best and worst dressed, who won and who should have won. A sucessful night for Hollywood.
