{Awards Shows}


Awards recap:

First of all, I'm a bit saddened by the fact that none of thee Mexican directors (shown above) won any top honors at the Academy Awards. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel failed to win Best Film, Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth failed to win Best Foreign Film, and Alfonso CuarĂ³n didn't win for Best Adapted Screenplay for Children of Men. It was nice however, to see Martin Scorsese finally win for Best Director and for Alan Arkin to pull an upset for Best Supporting Actor (Little Miss Sunshine). It was also nice (but predictable) to see the beautiful Helen Mirrin win Best Actress and Forest Whitaker's speech (for Best Actor) was especially moving. See the scorecard here.

I was most excited to watch The Spirit Awards. It was nice to see Little Miss Sunshine and Half Nelson rake up all the big awards. Although I was dissapointed that David Lynch was not in attendance (when receiving an honorary award), and that 12 and Holding failed to win an award. See the scorecard here

And last, but certainly least The Razzie Awards handed out their Worst Of list...it looks like Basic Instinct 2 raked up the most nods. See the full list here.
