The groups agreed on Boyle for best director, as well as all acting honors: "Milk's "Sean Penn for best actor, "Rachel Getting Married"'s Anne Hathaway for best actress, "The Dark Knight"'s Heath Ledger for best supporting actor, and "Doubt"'s Viola Davis for best supporting actress. They split on screenplay honors, with Dallas honoring Dustin Lance Black"'s "Milk" script and Houston Simon Beaufoy for "Slumdog," as well as cinematography ("Dark Knight" for Dallas, "Button" for Houston) and foreign language film ("Tell No One' for Dallas, "Mongol" for Houston).
