Well, Ben Button will not be going home empty handed ( fears were it would be the most nominated loser in Oscar history). It takes the Art Direction award ( deservedly- it’s gorgeous to look at). Costume design goes to The Duchess, another deserved award ( those costumes are astonishing).
Daniel Craig makes a funny! The award goes to Ben Button ( the only award it’s up for that it had no real competition for, unless the Academy went overboard on honoring the Dark Knight due to it’s oversight at Best Picture).
The show seems to be moving at a fast clip this year. I’m not bored at all.
Robert Pattinson ( sqealing commences- NOW!) Amanda Seyfreid looks gorgeous. Another montage sequence- I like them better this year. They’re on point, have great music, and are edited superby.
Natalie Portman and Ben Stiller are funny as Ben channels Joaquin Phoenix ( Natalie gets off the best line -” You look like you work in a Hasidic meth lab.”) Slumdog wins again for cinematography.
