(The Bar is over. I don't want to talk about it.) I regret being too busy to post my picks for Academy Award winners. I must say that I was pretty happy with the results. Here were my pics.

Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger The Dark Knight
runner-up: Josh Brolin Milk

My favorite moment of the night was Sean Penn's acceptance speech. It really touched me and I loved the movie so much. Everyone should go see it.
Benjamin Button & Changeling got very little love. Everything is as it should be.
