Winners for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards
Well, we did it. Awards season is finally over. The last little gold man has been given out. The last bowtie tied. The last bizarre, possibly bubble wrap-based, dress zipped up. The last tearful speech delivered. The last celebratory glass of champagne drank (well, maybe). The Oscars have come and gone, and nothing is quite the same (everything is still the same).
After live-Tweeting through the ceremony, I feel a bit of a haze when it comes to remembering the big moments, I was so glued to my iPhone the entire time. There were cheers every time Jeff Bridges appeared on screen, hoots for Kathryn Bigelow's wins, and actual laughter over Ben Stiller's AVATAR stunt. There were surprises (Best Foreign Film), and "lady Kanye" (MUSIC BY PRUDENCE) moments. There were shoo-ins (Christoph Waltz), and spot-on winners (LOGORAMA). It was, all and all, a sufficient telecast.
Hit the jump to see the full list of winners. As always, please let us know your thoughts in the comments.
