Full List of Winners For 2009 Oscars

Announcing the Winners: The 2009 Oscars!


Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner Sunday night at the Oscars in Hollywood, taking home the awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and six others. Slumdog nearly swept all of the categories in which it was nominated, winning eight of the awards out of 10 nominations.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button led the nominations with 13 nods, but it ended up with only three awards and was shut out of most major categories; its honors came in the visual categories, with recognition for art direction, makeup, and visual effects.

In other big news, Kate Winslet finally won her first Oscar out of six lifetime nominations, delivering a heartfelt and emotional speech in accepting her award for The Reader. Penelope Cruz took home the night's first award, for Best Supporting Actress, and Sean Penn won the Best Actor award for Milk in what was considered a highly contested battle between him and The Wrestler's Mickey Rourke.
