No big Oscar surprises....
Well, the Oscars provided no big surprises last night. The Hurt Locker was the big winner, with six awards, including the very first for a female director in Oscar history. (Yes, this is 2010.) Here are the winners of the major categories:
BEST PICTURE: The Hurt Locker BEST DIRECTOR: Katherine Bigelow, The Hurt Locker BEST ACTOR: Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart BEST ACTRESS: Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Mo'Nique, Precious BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Christopher Waltz, Inglorious Basterds BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Avatar BEST EDITING: The Hurt Locker BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: The Hurt Locker BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: Precious
Until next year, when I hope there's at least one "I didn't expect that" moment.
