Well, I predicted 12 correctly! Not bad...
Hmm, thoughts on what happened:
I'm a bit disappointed with what happened to Children of Men and Pan's Labyrinth. Pan's stole cinematography from Children and then Pan's lost it's deserving best foreign film...I wish they would have given Children at least that one award, and while The Lives of Others was good, Pan's was easily better.
There were a couple other smaller surprises, like Arkin winning for supporting actor, but when it came to the actors, director and picture, it went down just as I thought it would.
All I can say is I didn't think The Departed was the best picture of the year, and honestly personally thought Greengrass was the best director...but Scorsese winning for The Departed, and The Departed winning itself is still a really happy moment, and I'm glad he got it for The Departed instead of Gangs of New York or The Aviator, as this was his best movie since Goodfellas. It's nice to see that Scorsese won't go the way of Kubrick. Congratulations Marty. Also nice to see he was moved to tears when Thema Schoonmaker, his long time friend and just as long time collaborator, won for editing.
