Well, this is one award I can agree with - I quite like the score for Slumdog.

OK if you are, check out "King of Comedy" or "The Nutty Professor". Heck, I even like "Smorgasbord". But that's just me.

Ok I'll give you King of comedy"



FUCK! OK now SLumdog DID NOT deserve the score award!

Uh, Infernal Affairs was credited fully and talked about a lot in the hype surrounding Departed. I've heard of more than a few major Bollywood films that ripped off other films with no credit.

Mild surprise? It was a monumental surprise. And one of the greatest upsets in Oscar history.

Alicia Keys makeup is God-awful tonight.

And now, the least important category ever.

Because F'n Zac is so important he needs to do 2 awards?

Alicia Keys looks like a Bratz doll.

It's an odd one this year, Slumdog is winning it all, but it seems that there are not that many fans. Haven't seen it yet myself, i've not really got an opinion. But I don't see strong backing for it...

How fitting, the Best Song Award is being presented by one half of the Worst Song.

I think I heard this song when I picked up some milk at the 7-11 the other day.

Too many people like it. That's what everyone's complaint is.
