Oscar winners are...

02.25.2008

JoBlo.com's own Editor-in-Chief, Mike Sampson, was the man on the keyboard last night, with LIVE OSCAR UPDATES that had me cracking up alongside Jon Stewart, who I believe did another pretty solid job as the maestro this year. And is it me or does the dude look super-relaxed up there? Maybe it's from that habit he picked up on HALF BAKED? Anyway, I won't bore you with my two cents on the evening, but needless to say, I was very happy that the Coen brothers received all that praise after all their years of superior filmmaking. Go brosephs! Unfortunately the duo don't seem as talkative as the many quirky characters from their films, but hey...you can't have everything, right?

Another pitiful "prediction" year for myself this time around, as I only scored 52/100, despite picking Tilda Swinton off as "Best Supporting Actress" (I scored 53/100 last year). We'll be posting all of your scores from our 8TH ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

In terms of the Oscar movies themselves, the Coen bros' NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN ended up with the most wins this year (4), while a surprising film finished with the second most wins: THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM (3). Mind you, all three of BOURNE's awards had to do with sound or editing...not that there's anything wrong with that! Only two other films had more than one victory on the evening, and they were THERE WILL BE BLOOD (2) and again surprisingly, LA VIE EN ROSE (2). ATONEMENT, MICHAEL CLAYTON and JUNO each ended up with only 1 win on their side. Oh well. Another year, another drunken melee between Jim Law and Johnny Moreno at the JoBlo.com offices (if we had offices, that is). PS: Jack Nicholson. Should he just stay home next year? Discuss amongst yourselves.
