The Oscar winners!!

02.23.2009

We'll be posting the full list of everyone's scores in our OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST later today or Tuesday at the latest, but this year's scores were a LOT higher than in previous years with the person in 1st place scoring 95/100 and the person in 2nd place scoring 93/100. In fact, even our own internal JoBlo.com staff prediction contest featured two people with scores over 90! Wow. I only scored 62/100 myself.

In terms of the Oscars themselves, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE dominated with 8 wins including BEST PICTURE and BEST DIRECTOR, while THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON continued its trend of receiving a lot of nominations, but very few wins during this past award season (it was nominated for 13 Oscars, but only won 3 technical ones). DOUBT & FROST/NIXON also had 5 noms each, but won a total of zero. The biggest surprise for me (and everyone else, I think) was Sean Penn's win over Mickey Rourke, although kudos to Penn for propping Rourke at the end of his speech. And my personal favorite moment of the night was Ben Stiller's Joaquin Phoenix impression. Classic shit!
