The 82nd Academy Awards
Academy Awards Winners List
I will not bore you to tears with the events of that night since I didn't watch them... Far too busy watching Part One of the Hannah Montana Season Finale... and Some Family Guy reruns. Then I played some Pet Society, Gangster City and some Crazy Planets before checking IMDB...

The Hurt Locker beated Avatar 5 times!! Up even snagged one little golden naked man from the 10 ft. CGI Cat People.
This little video sums up my feelings regarding the Massive Defeat that Avatar received.
So this year no one fell for the Oscar bait that was Avatar.
Even the Birds have joined my celebration...
