^It's not that "The Cove" is a bad documentary (though it is too obvious in its narrative and too one-sided in its presentation, but compared to past winner "Fahrenheit 9/11", "The Cove" is almost unbiased ), rather it's that “Which Way Home” and “Burma VJ” were far superior documentaries.

That being said, did anyone else notice that Bea Arthur was left off the 'In Memoriam' tribute?

The best for whom and based on what? Results are almost always decided by a combination of subjective and objective criteria. And whoever wins it, it is always the same. As long as they deserve it, then that should be okay.

^How does one "deserve" an award? You "earn" awards, either by talent, prestige, heritage, association, or a damn good marketing campaign (Bullock really didn't have any of these, rather she has popularity, which shouldn't earn anyone an award). No one "deserves" an award.

In a deserve an award after receiving kind of way (you look at it and see whether she deserved it or not). If someone who got the award is as good as the rest of the nominees, then the result should be okay and acceptable even if not agreeable due to personal preferences (and I think Bullock was different in this movie, unlike her roles in many of her other movies, much stronger and impactful).

That brings the grand total to 6 . Also Kathryn Bigelow created history by being the first women to win an Oscar for best director in academy in 82 years . Its like Sidney Poitier all over again . Eat Dirt that Cameron thats what you get for abandoning Terminator .

I am a bit disappointed Clooney did not win I haven't seen Crazy Heart . Nor I am going to bother watching it, not my kind of movie . Guess Bridges deserves it , still would have liked Clooney to win .

Most of the awards were what i expected and while I felt some of the winners were the "popular" choice (Bullock) I was overall satisfied.

It was nice seeing Michael Giacchino win an oscar for Up. He is a brillant composer (one of my favorites) and I've always enjoyed his musical works; especially what he has done on LOST.

Looks like a apolitical, low budget film about soldiers simply fighting in Iraq won over a big budget, anti-war and pro-environmental one.

Not to say that Avatar and Hurt Locker aren't equally awesome regardless of whatever message they present but still great win for Indy films. Goes to show you don't always need big money for entertainment.

Without further ado, congratulations Katherine Bigalow.

And congrats to Christoph Waltz as well for his affably evil Nazi.

And also really big congratulations to Sandra Bullock. Best leading actress (for Blind Side) and Worst Leading Actress (for All About Steve)

So, free copies of All About Steve for every member of the audience. Wonder how much one was worth for so many copies

But Avatar's message was VERY poorly done. It was so black and white, like everything would be solved if we just embrace nature.
