Last night the 82nd Academy Awards took place.   James Cameron and Avatar, top grossing film all-time, lost to ex-wife Kathyrn Bigelow and The Hurt Locker.  It was a night of redemption for her.  Kaythrn Bigelow became the first female director to take home the top honor, a long time coming.   A little fun fact : I was in Ocean’s 7-11 with Jess Macallen, her boyfriend is Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) and Evageline Lily is in The Hurt Locker.  Six degress of Kevin Bacon, I mean seperation.

Bigelow is 'Queen of the world'

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were your co-hosts.  They were solid but Billy Crystal still is numero uno.

Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Monique and Christoph Waltz were much deserved winners.

Up in the Air  was shut out from victory.  A great film that I thought would win, something!

Two Lost alums took home Oscars.  Lost is a part of everything and they can add Oscar gold.  Fisher Stevens took home an Oscar for his work on the Documentary feature The Cove.  Michael Giachinno won best original score for UP.  Pretty freakin’ cool!
