80th Academy Awards

Well, the Academy Awards have come and gone for yet another year. It was a lot of fun to twitter though and participate in Row Three's live chat. Overall, I think it was a pretty calm year and most of the shoe-in's got their shoe in and I know many people will be happy with the Coen Brother's 4 victories for No Country for Old Men, including Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay and Actor in a supporting role. There was a lot of sharing the love this year, many films going home with just 1 award but there are 2 perfect prizes in my book for The Bourne Ultimatum and Once, as both films won all categories they were nominated in.

Kudo's to CTV for great Red Carpet coverage, and for chatting with all the Canadian nominee's.

I love how your organized this Shannon and am very grateful since I was in bed early that night and missed pretty much everything but the first half hour. Excellent coverage, thank you!
