I have to mention one thing though:
Sean Penn won for "Milk"!
I got to see every oscarnominated movie I listed below, besides "Slumdog" and "Doubt". Many great movies this year, but my favourites have to be "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Milk". "Benjamin Button" for it lovely cinematography, visual effects and art direction, and "Milk" for its gripping story and the lovely performance of Sean Penn as Harvey Milk. Go and see it at once!
My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you!
