Heath Ledger : Won the Oscar for best supporting actor ,his mom ,dad and daughter spoke . But two things grabbed my attention about him, 1st one that the announcer read "and the Oscar goes to Heath Ledger" as if he knew and was disappointed ! that's how it sounded to me ,and then in Queen Latifa's tribute song to the deceased he wasn't mentioned !!! or i didn't see it ?
Penelope Cruz : won the supporting actress Oscar for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona but one wouldn't imagine that being touched and emotional would come out this way from such an amazing actress !! she should've acted touched and emotional ,it was just weird !! oh and she wants us all "to protect art" ! who is stealing art from the world ??
Milk : Won the original screenplay Oscar and Sean Penn won the best actor in a leading role
the writer was about to break in tears both times ,he sent a message to "all the gay and lesbian kids out there" telling them they're beautiful .
Rober Deniro's introduction on Sean Penn was hilarious " how did he do it ? how did he play all those roles of straight men before" .
Wall-E : Won Best animated feature film , in the "movie book" they made on animation movies it was all Wall-E,it was brilliant i loved that movie so much ,was good to see wall-e back .
Kate Winslet : didn't forget Angelina's name this time (she did at the Golden Globe awards), she tapped her shoulder and didn't mention any of her fellow nominees at all .
Zac Efron : needs to learn when to stop clapping !
Goes to : Kunio Kato ,he won the short animated movie category and gave the best speech ever " Oh its heavy!" aren't people bored with this lame lame old old joke alreay ?!?! they have all the time to think of what they're gonna say,and these are creative people for hell's sake !
Lame joke award ,second place goes to the cinematographer of Slum Dog Millionir : "Kids go to sleep" !!!
Another thing to notice this year is the absence of the big Oscar statues ,they're gone ,and presenters presenting 2,3 or in Will Smith's case 12,000 Oscars on a raw .
Slumdog Millionaire beat Benjamin Button's Butt,it won picture of the year (that means the best movie) ,Best adapted screenplay (that means the story,the script,the dialog,which was adapted from an original book or play script),sound mixing ,film editing ,and original score (that means song) ,while The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button won the art of direction (that means the decor ,the sets,the buildings etc...),of course the make up,and visual effects .
NOW the important thing, what pissed me off :
If in the movie Waltz With Bashir (which lost for a Japanese film) ,the movie called what happened in Sabra and Shatella a MASSACRE,why did the academy take the liberty to describe it as " a soldier looks back at his role in a controversial military action"?!?!??!?!?! i have one thing to say about this ,what the fuck !?
