Wow, I would have been satisfied with at least Hellboy picking that up.. but Jesus. Another TDK loss.

I just really didn't care for Benjamin Button.

I have a feeling the voters are throwing a bone to TDK by giving the only award to Ledger as a means of "legitimacy."

What, the kids from Twilight... that's why they kept the presenters secret.

Show a lot of things happing at once,
Remind everyone what’s going on (what’s going on)
And when every shot you show a little improvement
Just show it all or it will take to long
That’s called a montage (montage)
Ooh we want montage (montage)

It's just not the Oscars without "Twilight" and "High School Musical" clips.

Why do they keep showing clips from movies that aren't even nominated? These montages suck.

Really? In the Hollywood romance section we get "High School Musical 3"? (For some reason, "Nick and Norah" doesn't bother me, but I kinda liked that movie.)
