The Oscars

So, the Oscars. Some decent films got some good awards, there were some 'upsets' and some well deserved wins. Martin Scorsese finally got his win for the Departed, which also won Best Picture. (I was rooting for the Queen). Pan's Labyrinth got three of the five that it was nominated for, which was excellent, although Children of Men was completely snubbed for Best Screenplay and Cinematography. All around though, no major sweeps like Lord of the Rings a couple years ago, everything seemed to get a good amount of recognition. Not entirely sure if that's a good thing or a bad one. I do need to see the Departed though, as well as the Queen.
