    No surprises in the film department. I would have liked to see a win for Bryan Cranston, though.

    It looks like Davis will be taking home the Oscar (maybe). I would have love to see Pitt win, but if he's going to lose I hope it's to Dujardin.

    Baldwin winning 6 times in a row is a bit excessive, especially since he isn't that funny.

    @narrator LOL

    Anyways, the winners are good. No arguments here. Since Bridesmaids yet again appears in an awards list, I have a feeling one day, there will be a best comedy film of the year category. Unlikely, but you never know. They keep adding each time a new category
