81st Academy Award Winners

I didn't watch the oscars. I'm on strike cause The Dark Knight wasn't nominated.
I did watch the videos on YouTube though. It looked nice. The performances were super cool. Hugh Jackman did an awesome job as host. Overall Slumdog was the big winner with 8 Oscars, Benjamin Button cries with only 3 but I was so upset when The Dark Knight only won 2. Two!Nice to see Heath Ledger get his Oscar though. Anyways here's the list of winners last night.

Oi you are a leeeeeettle bit biased towards DK lah. Like i've said, all this hullaballoo over DK intensified many many many times, because of the death of Heath Ledger.

But then I am also a little prejudiced against DK because of all the supposedly wonderful reviews on it and after watching it, it did not meet my very high expectations.
