2010 Academy Awards Winners

Monday, March 8 by

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards have come and gone with no real big upsets. Here’s a quick recap but you can also check out our live blog for a play-by-play of the night.

The Hurt Locker took home Best Picture as well as snagging the Best Director prize for Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention Best Original Screenplay for Mark Boal.

Jeff Bridges finally won the Best Actor prize that has been waiting for him for his portrayal of Bad Blake in Crazy Heart.

Sandra Bullock was surprised to see she edged out Meryl Streep to win Best Actress for The Blind Side.

The supporting categories went to Cristoph Waltz and Mo’Nique.

Though James Cameron was beat by a girl, Avatar won three prizes – Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effects.

A round of congratulations are in order for all of the winners as well as the nominees who went home empty-handed. It’s a thrill just to be considered and I think we all can agree that the real loser of the night was Ben Stiller.
