Hollywood's big night -- Take 4
If you're wondering whether "Benjamin Button's" win for art direction means anything in terms of the rest of the evening, I'd say, "No." I might have thought differently had "Benjamin Button" taken best costumes, which went to "The Duchess." "Button's" win for best makeup didn't change my mind about the movie's Oscar future. These kinds of awards for "Benjamin Button" seem right to me because the movie -- mostly a bore -- was a beautifully crafted bore.
