Requisite Oscar Post

It was wash for Slumdog Millionaire, which picked up eight of its nominations today, practically knocking everything else off the map. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button followed with just three wins (Art Direction, Make-Up, Visual Effects -- nothing major), and then followed with two each for Milk (Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor -- yea!) and The Dark Knight (Sound Editing, Best Supporting Actor -- posthumous).

And those are the only ones which got more than one Oscar this year, so, yea.

I guess I should go see this Slumdog Millionaire movie or something.

Thanks to the Twitterverse for keeping me up to date while the event was going on. Seriously, I was getting minute-by-minute updates. No fewer than 20 Tweets about each thing going on, what people were wearing, and speeches. Whoa, dude. Just, whoa.
