Wow. Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker wins six Oscars, including best director, making her the first woman in 82 years to win in that category. Once again, indie upsets the studio Bigfoot. Good night for Precious (Oscars for adapted screenplay and Mo'Nique). Good night for veterans Jeff Bridges and Sandra Bullock. Meryl Streep, the most-nominated (and most-losing) performer in Academy history, is canonized by colleagues Stanley Tucci, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. Good night for Up. Up in the Air is shut out.
Your thoughts on Oscar awards and Oscarcast? Much as I love Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, I thought they were uncharacteristically fogeyish. You?
