Academy Award

The 77th Annual Academy Award was held last night at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. As usual, I tuned in last night for the only award show that I must watch every year. Out of the five nominated films this year, I only saw Aviator. But it was so good and Leonardo DiCaprio did such a superb job portraying Howard Hughes, I was very sure he would win an Oscar this year. Turned out the best actor went to Jamie Foxx for his splendid performance as Ray Charles in Ray. Million Dollar Baby won the best picture. Hillary Swank and Clint Eastwood won best actress and best director respectively. I haven’t seen Million Dollar Baby yet. It seems like they’re the biggest winner at this year’s Academy. Maybe I should find sometime to go watch the movie~
