Announcing the Winners: The 2010 Oscars!

What a night — and it was groundbreaking 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 honor, 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 favored 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 favorite highlights of the evening (check back later for the rest), but let's go ahead and cover all the night's winners. Head over to my Oscar polls to vote on whether you think each is deserving, but I've got the entire list for your perusal when you

I'm SO GLAD Avatar didn't win best director or best picture. I was sure it would - was all prepared to be disappointed by the Academy yet again. They really surprised me this time! I think Avatar deserved to win for art direction, visual effects and cinematography, but it didn't even deserve to be nominated for best picture. Also: thrilled for Up and Sandra Bullock. I was really pleased with all of the winners last night.
