Hurt Locker Awards

2010 Academy Awards Winners - The Hurt Locker Wins Six

The 82nd Academy Awards have finally arrived and it's now time to announce the winners of the most prestigious award in Hollywood. The ceremony is being shown live from the Kodak Theatre where hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will be reminding us that laughter always makes the Oscar ceremony so much more entertaining. This should be a very exciting and quite interesting year at the Academy Awards, considering this is the first year (since 1943) that we've had 10 nominees for Best Picture. The complete list of nominees below will be updated with winners marked as they're announced live on the show tonight.

Read on for the complete list of nominees and winners and to let us know what you think of the results!

This will be updated throughout the night to reflect the winners. Additionally, I occasionally might add a small bit of editorial commentary beneath each category. Winners are highlighted in BOLD below.

PICTURE:

The Blind Side
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
Precious
A Serious Man
Pixar's Up
Up in the Air

Thoughts: After seeing all of the awards it won earlier in the show, I expected this to win. It was certainly the big year for The Hurt Locker and after a very long journey, it finally takes home the Oscar. I'm satisfied. It is a great movie and I'm glad to see it win the big one. Congratulationss to all of this year's nominees!

DIRECTOR:
James Cameron - Avatar
Kathryn Bigelow - The Hurt Locker
Quentin Tarantino - Inglourious Basterds
Lee Daniels - Precious
Jason Reitman - Up in the Air

Thoughts: Fine by me. I'm very happy to see Bigelow become the first female director to win. Everyone nominated this year deserved it, but I think Bigelow a bit more than the others (except for maybe James Cameron?).

ACTOR:
Jeff Bridges - Crazy Heart
George Clooney - Up in the Air
Colin Firth - A Single Man
Morgan Freeman - Invictus
Jeremy Renner - The Hurt Locker

Thoughts: Perfect. I don't think I need to say anything else. The Dude finally won an Oscar, hell yes!

ACTRESS:
Sandra Bullock - The Blind Side
Helen Mirren - The Last Station
Carey Mulligan - An Education
Gabourey Sidibe - Precious
Meryl Streep - Julie & Julia

Thoughts: You've got to be kidding me. What the hell? She should NOT have won. This is ridiculous. Bullock just robbed the Oscar straight out from under both Carey Mulligan and Gabourey Sidibe. What a bad choice!

SUPPORTING ACTOR:
Matt Damon - Invictus
Woody Harrelson - The Messenger
Christopher Plummer - The Last Station
Stanley Tucci - The Lovely Bones
Christoph Waltz - Inglourious Basterds

Thoughts: I expected him to win, but he certainly deserves it, too. His road to the Oscars started in Cannes last May and finally ends here with the win that we all predicted he should get from the start. Congrats!

SUPPORTING ACTRESS:
Penélope Cruz - Nine
Vera Farmiga - Up in the Air
Maggie Gyllenhaal - Crazy Heart
Anna Kendrick - Up in the Air
Mo'Nique - Precious

Thoughts: I would've liked to see someone else, but this was expected. She is really damn good in Precious.

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:
Mark Boal - The Hurt Locker
Quentin Tarantino - Inglourious Basterds
Alessandro Camon & Oren Moverman - The Messenger
Joel Coen & Ethan Coen - A Serious Man
Bob Peterson & Pete Docter - Pixar's Up

Thoughts: I would've preferred if Inglourious Basterds or A Serious Man took this, but I think this is The Hurt Locker's year the Oscars, so why not let it win as many as it can.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:
Neill Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell - District 9
Nick Hornby - An Education
Armando Iannucci & Simon Blackwell - In the Loop
Geoffrey Fletcher - Precious
Jason Reitman & Sheldon Turner - Up in the Air

Thoughts: Come on, why Precious over District 9 and Up in the Air and In the Loop and everything? Not who I wanted to see win. I loved Precious, but it's not this year's best screenplay.

ANIMATED FEATURE:
Coraline
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Princess and the Frog
The Secret of Kells
Pixar's Up

Thoughts: Another expected win, but a big congrats to Pixar for winning another Oscar (now their 7th)!

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM:
Ajami (Israel)
El Secreto de Sus Ojos (Argentina)
The Milk of Sorrow (Peru)
Un Prophète (France)
The White Ribbon (Germany)

Thoughts: I was rooting for Un Prophete, which hands down should have won this, especially over The White Ribbon. I'd call this one huge upset because NO ONE was expecting this film to win at all!

Thoughts: Why didn't Avatar win these technical awards? Definitely a big upset, but as I said above, this is The Hurt Locker's night and it's going to be taking home a lot of awards - apparently these two as well.
