Trivia

Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director for The Hurt Locker (2008), and only the fourth to be nominated. Out of the five nominees that year who were predominantly male, she was also the oldest. 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

Steve Martin: The biggest change this year is that the Best Picture category has doubled. And all of us in Hollywood were thinking the same thing: "What's five times two?"

Kathryn goes 2-0 against her ex James! Sandy brings home gold, and Jeff finally gets a well overdue Oscar!
8 March 2010 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"The 82nd Annual Academy Awards" wasn't one of the best Oscars, and still not one of the worst. However it was history making and a little different than those past as the hosting was a tag team duty(Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin)and it featured for the first time since 1943 ten films were nominated for best picture. And for the first time in history a female would win best director(Kathryn Bigelow)and her film "The Hurt Locker" would knock off the all time box office grossing king "Avatar" for best picture! And it was nice to see two well deserved overdue veterans win for best actor(Jeff Bridges) and best actress(Sandra Bullock).

Starting off with a bang the tag team of Martin and Baldwin kept the show funny with crude jokes and well written one liners. Proving they were the funniest men in show business especially Steve stood out. However their stage time seemed to take a backseat to presenters, music skits, and speeches. Many past award winners were presenters as always, somewhat surprising was a tribute to the late romantic comedy and teen coming of age director and writer John Hughes. Odd was a montage tribute to horror films? And as typical as this year with music played by James Taylor a homage montage was given to stars that past away why was Farrah Fawcett left out? And the awards given out were predictable no real surprises.

The strongest performance wins were in the best actress category sweetheart Sandra Bullock walked away for her caring sympathetic role in "The Blind Side" clearly the kind of roles that pleases voters. It's nice the down to earth Sandy can take home gold as her speech was emotional almost bringing tears. Most pleasing was seeing the hard working talented Jeff Bridges win best actor for "Crazy Heart". Jeff was long deserving of receiving an award. His acceptance speech was happy go lucky he's a good likable guy too nice pick by the academy. If you saw "Crazy Heart" his performance was talented and amazing for how his character battled pain and hardship on the way to redemption.

Next history was made Kathryn Bigelow was the first female ever to win best director as she won for her film "The Hurt Locker". And to add the icing on the cake "The Hurt Locker" won best picture defeating all time box office champ "Avatar" as Kathryn was two and zero against her ex husband James Cameron who directed "Avatar" and was up for best director. The academy liked a bomb stopping crew over blue aliens! Overall good Oscar show that could have been better it seemed a little rushed and really no surprises in the awards to predictable. It will be most remembered for Bigelow's history making win and well liked for Bullock and Bridges well long overdue deserved wins.
