--Aw, I was looking forward to Roderick Jaynes' acceptance speech for Film Editing, but it went to THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM instead.

--Without 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS on the list or THE BAND'S VISIT even eligible, I don't care much about Best Foreign Language film this year. As I predicted, it goes to THE COUNTERFEITERS (how the Academy loves a holocaust film), though I'm guessing (hoping?) the accompanying music's not in the film as it's much better suited for a figure skating competition.

--Here comes John Travolta and his spray-on hair. Vinnie Barbarino would not approve. It kinda restores one's faith in humanity when something from ONCE wins Best Original Song. Make art, indeed.
