2010 Oscars: Announcing the Winners!

What an Oscar ceremony—and it was record-breaking to boot! Avatar may be the big gun when it comes to special effects, but it was Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker that swept the two major awards of the 2010 Oscars with best picture and best director. Her win marks the first time a female director has ever won the honour and I couldn't help but let out a gleeful "yes!" when her name was announced. The rest of the categories pretty much stuck to the favoured picks with Jeff Bridges taking the stage for Crazy Heart, Mo'Nique for Precious, Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds and, in a tearful acceptance speech, Sandra Bullock accepted her best actress win for The Blind Side. That was one of my favourite highlights of the ceremony (check back later for the rest of the hits and misses), but let's go ahead and cover all the show's winners. Head over to my Oscar polls to vote if you think each is deserving, but I've got the entire list for your perusal after the jump.
