Pretty good movie; I thought it was a marvelous piece of craft, if a bit too inscrutable for me to really love it.

I think so.
Yep -- until now, Trek was always a bridesmaid, never a bride at the Oscars.

They got The Dude to introduce the Coen Bros' film of the year.

Checking Memory Alpha: This does, indeed, seem to be the first time Trek has won Oscar. Been nominated plenty of times. This is the first win.

Wow, I figured it would have won some kind of technical award at some point.

Odd, in some ways; the makeup in Trek XI was great, but there weren't any radically different races or anything from past films.

Well, again, compared to the other noms, I guess Trek's win was a no-brainer.

Still, the first Star Trek to ever win an Oscar!

Would love to see In The Loop win, but I think Up In The Air is a given.

EDIT: Well, I'm wrong. Both the screenplay awards have been upsets, I think.

Holy shit.

Well, I guess there had to be one surprise.

Reitman will have to wait another year or two.

I would like District 9 to win adapted screenplay ... but Precious wins.

Indeed. This may be it's only one this go-around, it doesn't stand a chance in VFX.

Fletcher clearly wasn't expecting to win.
