Post Oscar Post

I'm glad that No Country for Old Men won Best Picture this year. The Coen Brothers have long been an important fixture in American cinema and it is but fitting that they get the award for their best work yet. Javier Bardem winning Best Supporting Actor was no surprise since he pretty much won every award that let to the Oscars. Everybody was surprised that Tilda Swinton won Best Supporting Actress for Michael Clayton...including herself, so much that she gave a pretty trippy acceptance speech with George Clooney and the Batman nipples and stuff. i LOVE that Diablo Cody won Best Original Screenplay for Juno (That picture above is her, by the way, still holding her Oscar after a night of celebrating. Sweet.), I didn't know that she used to be an exotic dancer, "Enjoy the paycut" says Jon Stewart, who made a vast improvement with his hosting chores this year than last time.
It was no surprise also that Daniel Day Lewis won Best Actor> I've yet to see There Will Be Blood, if you are not aware, they DID show it here in only ONE theater! In Gateway (I'm in Makati)! Now it's gone. I'm gonna have to drink my milkshake some other time...
