2009 Academy Awards Winners

This is the list of 2009 Academy Awards Winners:


PICTURE
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Frost/Nixon
Milk
The Reader
Slumdog Millionaire

I love this movie, but it is not the best film of 2008.


DIRECTOR
Danny Boyle – Slumdog Millionaire
Stephen Daldry – The Reader
Clint Eastwood – Changeling
David Fincher – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Ron Howard – Frost/Nixon

Boyle is great director. I love all his work, and he deserve this Oscar


ACTOR
Richard Jenkins – The Visitor
Frank Langella – Frost/Nixon
Sean Penn – Milk
Brad Pitt – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Mickey Rourke – The Wrestler

Sean Penn was exceptional in Milk, but Mickey Rourke should get it.

ACTRESS
Anne Hathaway – Rachel Getting Married
Angelina Jolie – Changeling
Melissa Leo – Frozen River
Meryl Streep – Doubt
Kate Winslet – The Reader

Winslet deserves this.

Deserves it.

SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams – Doubt
Penelope Cruz – Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Viola Davis – Doubt

Cruz isn’t bad, but I wasn’t impressed by her. Truthfully, I would’ve much rather seen Viola Davis or Marisa Tomei win the Oscar
