Trivia

This ceremony had the unique distinction of having a real person and a character of the same name as nominees. Ryan Bingham was nominated for (and won) Best Original Song for "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart (2009). George Clooney was nominated for Best Actor for playing a character named Ryan Bingham in Up in the Air (2009). 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: Meryl Streep holds the record for most nominations as an actress. Or as I like to think of it, most losses.

The time has come
7 March 2010 | by lee_eisenbergSee 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.
