Odd, in some ways; the makeup in Trek XI was great, but there weren't any radically different races or anything from past films.
methinks this was somewhat a consolation prize. I mean, Trek may just have been in the ten best films list if Avatar hadn't come along. just IMO though. I might be wrong.

I'm glad it won... something. I'm happy. I think the industry on the whole loved the movie.

That was a nice, humble, speech. Very real.

And Steve Martin with some good lines.

Roger Corman and Lauren Bacall - odd couple of the night.

I loved A Serious Man.
Pretty good movie; I thought it was a marvelous piece of craft, if a bit too inscrutable for me to really love it.
It was amazing. But you really have to know a little about the era- a lot of it is based on the Coen brothers' lives growing up in Minnesota.

Wow, Precious won Adapted Screenplay?

Nice to see Corman get some respect.

Bacall seems to be OK at 86, she and Betty White should do some project together.

So they got Robin Williams to stand in for Heath Ledger. Interesting choice.

Wow, where'd they dig up Molly Ringwald?
She's actually been a main character on a silly teen drama ABC Family show for the past couple of years. She's actually not that good in it, but that may just be the horrible writing.
My wife and I were just wondering that (DVRs are a wonderful thing). I kept waiting for her to say, "John Hughes took a chance on a robot like me. He taught me to love..."

I'd like to see Maggie win for Crazy Heart. But I think Monique will win this one

Mo'Nique, to the surprise of no one.

Not that she doesn't deserve it. She was fucking terrifying in that movie.

Also, mmm, Penelope Cruz in her underwear.

Nice nod to Hattie McDaniel.

Mo'Nique wins -- another non-surprise. Are all the awards going to be this easy to call, I wonder?

But hey, if she deserves it, then more power to her (I can't say if she does or not -- I haven't seen Precious yet).
