Slumdog completes its magical sweep with 8 Oscars.

Slumdog Millionaire. I called it.

Cue more Slumdog hate?

Still thought it was a very good movie, not epic, but deserving over the other nominees. I still think The Dark Knight and The Wrestler were robbed.

Well, a night of virtually no surprises...I should probably go and see Slumdog now. ;)

I can almost guarantee this Academy Awards will be the least viewed in history.

Yep. Just mostly disappointments (for me, anyway).

Cant say Im surprised. Still disappointed though. My hate of Crash lessened by about 50% now though..

I didn't watch it, but I'm pretty sure it was the Ann Veal of Oscar ceremonies.

Especially after Best Supporting Actor. They already pushed it up an hour, they should have put it late, all the while teasing us after every commercial break.

Just what I was thinking. I honestly never heard of Slumdog until the awards season. I'm sure the average viewer is scratching their heads right now.

I think it's a shame that it's possible Rourke's 'persona' might have swayed voters in any way, his performance was unbelievable and I think he earned it.

This is the thing.... without Penn.. Milk is still a very good/great film (of 2008) and still gets a bunch of nominations, and probably still a Best Picture nom. Without Rourke, Wrestler is never even heard of.

So, is SDM a Crash/DWW/SiL or will it stand the test of time?

So, who won the Oscar Pool?

Could have been worse. The Reader could have won.
