    Live at Oscars: Strangers No More Wins Doc Short, God of Love Wins Live Short, Inside Job Wins

    "Three years after a horrific financial crisis, not a single financial executive has gone to jail and that is wrong," says Charles Ferguson as he accepts the Oscar for Inside Job. The front-runner won over upstart Exit Through the Gift Shop, depriving Oscar watchers of seeing who would accept the award for Banksy. This is a case of gravitas winning out over a more whimsical film about art.

    Live at the Oscars: Leo Wins Supporting Actress, Pixar Wins Toy Story 3, Loses Day & Night

    Supporting actress is announced by Kirk Douglas, who milks the moment for all it's worth, the ornery old coot. He flirts with Anne Hathaway. "You're gorgeous, where were you when I was making pictures?" Douglas reminds he lost three times. The Oscar for supporting actress goes to Melissa Leo. The fr...

    France's Cesars Go To Of Gods and Men and Ghost Writer; No Impact on Oscar Index Video

    France's Cesar awards, much like the European Film Awards, gave a lot more credit to Paris-based filmmaker-in-exile Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer than it has received stateside, where the Academy shut out the film. But the Cesars awarded best director, editing, score and adapted screenplay to th...
