So whilst I was fast asleep dreaming of unicorns vomiting rainbows, the 81st Annual Academy Awards were in full swing. And top dog of the night belonged to Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire which scooped a noteworthy 8 Oscars. The rags-to-riches success story about an orphan who appears on India’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire won best film, best director, best cinematography, best film editing, best song, best sound editing, best original score, and best adapted screenplay. In distance second place was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with prizes for best art direction, best makeup, and best visual effect.
And after his stern letter to the Academy, God would have been slightly happier to find out his man Health Ledger won best supporting actor for his role in The Dark Knight.
