80th Academy Awards happened last night, where were you? Hopefully not watching because then you would have no reason to be reading this article. So, um, read on then. In case you are curious as to who won.

Best Motion Picture – No Country for Old Men (Yes! This film was excellent, if not simple)

Best Actor – Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will be Blood (I was hoping for Viggo here, but a well deserved award nonetheless)

Best Supporting Actor – Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men (One of the most original portrayal of a assassin I have ever seen)

Best Actress – Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose (Huh? No honestly, who? Haven’t seen this movie…)

Best Supporting Actress – Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton (Excellent nomination as she was superb in this already glowing movie)

Best Animated Movie – Ratatouille (Surprisingly well done movie with a cast of actors that aren’t so well known)

Achievement in Art Direction – Art Direction: Dennis Gassner; Set Decoration: Anna Pinnock for Sweeney Todd (Would have been shocked if they didn’t win, the movie was like nothing I have seen before and yet so familiar being a Tim Burton fan)

Achievement in Cinematography – Robert Elswit in There Will be Blood (Hmm, would’ve preferred that Robert Deakins won here as the Assassination of Jesse James was just a little bit better to me)

Best Screenplay – Joel and Ethan Coen in No Country for Old Men (Just an excellent screenplay, no arguments here)

Best Director – Joel and Ethan Coen in No Coountry for Old Men (See above response only take away screenplay and add direction of movie)

Well those were the main categories (to me) and if you were interested in finding out all of the nights winners, I suggest you head on over to the Oscar’s web page and
