The Oscar winners -The 80th Annual Academy Awards

oscar-photo.jpgI don’t really tune in to award show broadcasts anymore because the acceptance speeches are sometime painful to watch (hence the lateness of the post). That being said, I was very surprised to find out that The Bourne Ultimatum won three Oscars but not so surprised that No Country for Old Men bet There Will Be Blood for the Best Picture win. No Country for Old Men has such a non-traditional ending that it stands out from the pack. Without further ado, here are the winners of 80th Annual Academy Awards.
