Slumdog Millionaire! My pick!
My favorite thank you speech of the evening was by A. R. Rahman. "All my life I've had a choice between hate and love, and I chose love, and now I'm here," he said.
I loved this film, and I love the music of A.R. Rahman. I have seen several films that he did the music for.
I was a bit annoyed at the young male presenter who could not get the name correct!
I loved seeing Danny Boyle and his Tigger impression! He is a great director.
I was happy to see Kate Winslet win best actress and Sean Penn for best actor.
I thought the show was wonderful. I could have had more Hugh Jackman! He was amazing as host. While I enjoyed seeing the past Oscar winners for best actress and actor, I could have done without the rather sappy introductions , this is how wonderful you are, of the nominees. I would rather have just seen the evidence by showing clips from their films.
All in in all I thought the show was fabulous.
On another event of the weekend, I saw the opera Rappaccini's Daughter, at Krannert with Steve. I have to say I think the set was absolutely amazing. The make up and costumes were outstanding and the music was beautiful.
