Oscar Picks 2009
I don't agree with Heath Ledger getting nominated for Best Supporting Actor either, but he's an extraordinary case. If the academy wanted to give out a pity award, they should have nominated him for the Lifetime Achievement award.
I hope that you have as much fun watching the show as I do. Though I am going to forgo the live blog and twitter following that seems to have become rampant at these events. Isn't a 3 hour broadcast enough?
