Oscars and New Cletus

Well the oscars got off to a great start and the very very slowly pettered out. I thought you guys were gonna context with me or something. well that didn't work and the new direction did work. yet again. I don't understand why they can't just hand out awards quickily. take out all the fat. like the musical is back. didn't a musical win best picture earlier this decade. Why did we need to know about the best Action movies of the year. really they did everything that people had a problem with in the first place. looks like we're back were we started from.
Slumdog Millionaire go the most awards with 8 (Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography, Sound, Song, and Original Score). Benjamin Button got 3 (Makeup, Visual Effects, and Art Direction). Milk (Best Actor and Original Screenplay) Dark Knight (Best Supporting Actor and Sound Editing) both got 2. I think Slumdog probably got way too many. As well did Benjamin Button. More so Slumdog Millionaire. Really Cinematography and soung that was lame. They never get Cinematography right like never. same with sound. which suprised me by not going to wall e at all.
Wall e for me was shut down from what could have been a record breaking night. All it had to do was win 3. it only won 1 but it still gets to be the most nominated animated film. tied with Beauty and The Beast. I guess that the lame ass boobie prize.
Also Waltz with Bashir lost out on best Foreign Film. could have been the only animated film to win best foreign film. However it is still the only and first one nominated. also i havn't seen any of these films. so i can't argue.
Acting wise. Sean Penn did give the best performance of the year. so i wanted Mickey Rourcke to win but I can't argue. Kate Winslet finally won after another great year. so at least they finally gave it to her. Heath Ledger was expected and makes the academy look a little less dated. Penelope Cruz was kind expected but it's coo she won.
Danny Boyle never thought the guy who directed trainspotting and 28 days later would win best director but it was kinda neat. Danny Boyle is a good director. wish Gus Van Sant had won but oo well.
And what was with the 5 previous winners annouce the nominees. one of the best things about the oscars is showing clips. See when you show clips. it helps promote the films. but i guess we can't even do that anymore. Also it really felt like a cult with the 5 previous winners. like there are like now you are previlaged to enter our relgion. were we worship best supporting actor. allll hail the categorey. who will also enter the secret society of best supporting actor. actually maybe they should try that.
also is it fitting that the dark knight crossed the one billion mark this weekend.
