The 2008 Academy Awards are over… (updated)

Best Picture: No Country for Old Men
Director: Joel & Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men
Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood
Actress: Marion Cotillard for La Vie en Rose
Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem for No Country for Old Men
Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton for Michael Clayton

A complete list of winners can be found at the official Oscars website.

UPDATE: Here’s Marketa Irglova’s acceptance speech, for those who missed it, or who want to get a little misty all over again:

USA Today provides us with "the best of Jon Stewart" from last night’s ceremony. My favorite: "The Democrats do have an historic race going.… Normally, if you see a black man or a woman president, an asteroid is about to hit the Statue of Liberty."

The Associated Press reports that last night’s telecast was the least-watched Oscar ceremony ever, with a 21.9 rating and a 33 share. This was 14% lower than the previous least-watched ceremony ever, which had 33 million viewers.

(NBC taken down the SNL "I Drink Your Milkshake" sketch I’d embedded above, so here it is at the NBC site.)

    I’ve said it once, and I’d say it again: If you ever get into an argument on the internet, you are obliged to “yell” “I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!!!”.

    That is all.

    Wow, is this SNL? These last two clips you have shown make me want to watch it again.

    Great Website, too.

    Did you read that this weekend’s SNL was the highest rated in two years?

    Gotta give it up to Hader. That was a wicked Daniel Plainview imitation.

    I didn’t catch the whole show, but there are a lot of really good clips from it online. This one’s also movie-related:

    And Tina Fey’s return to Weekend Update was pretty damn good, too:
