2009 Oscars Surprise

February 23, 2009


The night was elegant but the stars shined brightest.  As Hollywood honchos and invited guests walked down the red carpet, they prepared themselves to witness a show of dreams. Kodak Theater is the perfect venue for such an extravaganza. Hugh Jackman hosted the show, and I must say, he did a fantastic job. I didn’t knew Hugh Jackman could sing and do some musical stuff.  It was a real surprise! Maybe its time to start working on X-Men: The Musical eh?  Sure it was a room filled with stars, but the setting itself was phenomenal. Kodak Theatre turned into a gala. The stage was intricately designed to match the class and lifestyle of Hollywood. Skits were presented, musical numbers were performed, and Oscar winners were announced. All the actors and actresses looked stunning, mentioning Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet, and Natalie Portman as my favorites. It was just an amazing night and unlucky me, I wasn’t there. Were you there Duke?

As expected, Heath Ledger won the Best Supporting Actor award. His family came in town to accept the Oscar and delivered the acceptance speech. But the spectacular belonged to Slumdog Millionaire (I dig Freida Pinto) who bagged 8 Oscars including Best Picture. Although Mickey Rourke didn’t got the nod, his efforts would surely bring him back to the limelight. Oscars 2009 still rocked. Kudos to all the nominees and winners! It was a job well done.

Didn’t catch the live telecast? Too busy to watch the replay? Head over and check out the winner’s list here. Oh, also have a look on the Oscars photo gallery here.

    dapat hindi muna kumanta si hugh jackman. he should’ve saved that for a REAL musical, that way he can earn himself an oscar nomination (like Zellweger, Depp, Kidman, etc).

    ganda talaga ni anne hathaway. hehehe

    Oh, hugh jackman did some REAL musical stuff back in Australia. But he needs to do some more in US, for the fans 😉 and to earn sufficient recognition as well, perhaps an Oscar nomination!

    hahaha Anne Hathaway FTW!….Pero, Penelope Cruz din pambato ko! hahaha! FTW!
