Trivia

Both Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Stiller were set to present an award with Cohen as a Na'vi from Avatar (2009), pregnant with "James Cameron's love child", and Stiller as his translator. The idea was canceled by the Academy to not offend Cameron. Stiller, however, appeared as a Na'vi in a watered-down version of the skit. See more »

Goofs

Samuel L. Jackson states that Up is the second film to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Animated Film. This is incorrect since the only other animated film to be nominated for Best Picture was Beauty and the Beast, but it was not nominated for Best Animated Film. The category didn't exist in 1991.

Quotes

Paul N.J. Ottosson - Winner: Best Sound & Best Sound Editing: This is such a great honor to be here. Twenty-three years ago, other side of the world, I sold everything I had to come and be part of what you guys do over here. It's such a great honor. There's so many people have faith in me and gave me a shot, maybe when, I don't know that I earned it yet. And thank you to all those people. My wife and my son, for always loving me no matter what. And Kathryn, what an incredible movie. Thank you for everything and your friendship. All of you, the Academy, ...

The time has come
7 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"The 82nd Annual Academy Awards" will mainly be remembered as important because a woman won Best Director for the first time, and a movie about the Iraq War won Best Picture. I should admit that I haven't seen most of the nominated movies. I'll now have to see "The Hurt Locker", "The Blind Side" and "Crazy Heart" (I think that I'll pass on "Avatar"). Mo'Nique definitely deserved her Oscar. Christoph Waltz, who made one nasty Nazi, must be the first person who won an Oscar for playing a guy who eventually gets a swastika carved into his forehead.

I really liked it when Ben Stiller appeared made up to look like a Na'vi. Silly, yes, but anything that elicits humor is fine by me.

But the most important thing is that a woman has finally won a directing Oscar. To be certain, by awarding it to Kathryn Bigelow, the Academy really stuck it to James Cameron.

All in all, I liked what I saw.
