Well, I was wrong about Avatar taking best picture.
But I was right about this being a “year of small” as many lower budget films like Hurt Locker, Crazy Heart (yeah Jeff Bridges!) and Precious swept the awards.
Hard to believe that Kathryn Bigelow is the FIRST woman director to win an Oscar. http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1633375/story.jhtml
But better late than never. And for a war film, and not a romantic comedy, no less.
Overall I found the evening a bit uninspired. I actually fell asleep at 9:30 and had to catch up on what I missed in this morning’s news.
For NY area viewers the fight between ABC (broadcasters of the Oscar’s) and CableVision left the consumers as the big losers, until a last minute reprieve straightened things out. Wonder how this will impact the CableVision brand.
That’s my point of view. What’s your twist?
What’s your take on the 82nd Oscar’s?
