Heath Ledger, WALL-E lead Oscar genre wins

No big shockers here: The late Heath Ledger received Best Supporting Actor and WALL-E Best Animated Film. Less predictable was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button winning Best Visual Effects over The Dark Knight and Iron Man. Button also took Art Direction and Makeup, while The Dark Knight nabbed Sound Editing.

Slumdog Millionaire was the night’s biggest winner, with Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, both music awards and several others.

  1. I saw the Benjamin Button wins. I actually expected it to win more. Not because I think it is a great film (I have yet to see it), just that it seems to be getting ‘that’ kind of response. I also expected more of Slumdog Millionaire for awards.

  2. As much as I love ILM’s work, I’d say Benjamin Button really was worthy competition and deserving of the VFX award. It’s pretty astounding what they pulled off.
