A summary of my Oscar Tweets, Part 8
9:59 The Academy does the right thing, and gives the best picture Oscar to "The Hurt Locker." 9:50 p.m. Kathryn Bigelow wins the Oscar for best director. It's a great honor for her, but did we need Babs to remind us that the time had come for a woman director to win? It's not Oscar's achievement; it's Bigelow's. Classy speech from Bigelow, acknowledges soldiers about whom she made her film. 9:40 p.m. The Oscar for best actress goes to Sandra Bullock. The woman sitting next to me gags. Sorry, but it's true. But Bullock does a nice job of acknowledging her fellow nominees. Would I have voted for her? Er...no. But she really does seem to be Miss Congeniality.
