And the Oscar goes to...

coens oscarZoals verwacht is No Country For Old Men de grote winnaar geworden op de uitreiking van de 80e Academy Awards. De film van Joen en Ethan Coen sleept de prijs voor de beste film, de beste regie, beste scenario en de beste mannelijke bijrol (Javier Bardem) in de wacht en klopt daarmee medefavoriet There Will Be Blood, die het moet stellen met de award voor de beste acteur.

De verrassingen van de avond bevonden zich aan de kant van de actrices, waar de Française Marion Cotillard heel verrassend de Oscar voor de beste actrice kreeg. Cotillard werd bekroond voor haar interpretatie van Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose en ze schrijft daarmee geschiedenis want ze is pas de tweede Franse actrice die een Oscar. Eerder wist alleen Simone Signoret een beeldje te winnen voor Les Chemins de la Haute Ville.

Cotillard was naar verluidt zo opgetogen dat ze spontaan in zingen uitbarste toen ze van het podium stapte. Volgens Variety zong ze geheel toepasselijk het nummer 'Padam Padam' van Edith Piaf. "I'm speechless now. Thank you life; thank you love. It is true there are some angels in this city", liet de Franse nog noteren.

Ook in de categorie beste vrouwelijke bijrol kwam niet de verwachte winnares uit de enveloppe. Het was immers Tilda Swinton en niet Cate Blanchett die het beeldje in ontvangst mocht nemen. En daarmee komen alle acteerprijzen naar Europa, meer bepaald naar Ierland (Day-Lewis), Engeland (Swinton), Spanje (Bardem) en Frankrijk (Cotillard).

Juno wist toch één van zijn vier nominaties te verzilveren en kreeg terecht de Oscar voor beste origineel scenario. Scenariste Diablo Cody: "I'm shocked by the popularity of the film. I mean, when you write basically an independent movie about, you know, a pregnant teenager and you make it for seven million dollars you never, ever think it's going to become this phenomenon."

Dat Ratatouille werd uitgeroepen tot beste animatiefilm zal wellicht niemand verbazen. Troostprijzen waren er voor Atonement (soundtrack), The Golden Compass en The Bourne Ultimatum dat drie Oscars kreeg. De Belgische kortfilm Tanghi Argentini van Guido Thys moest helaas de duimen leggen voor het Franse Le Mozart des Pickpockets.

De voorbij scenaristenstaking liet toch nog sporen na, aangezien de voorbereidingstijd te kort was om grootse dansnummers ineen te steken. Ook de parodieën van de genomineerde films door presentator Jon Stewart. Het was de tweede keer dat Stewart de presentatie voor zijn rekening nam, en na zijn ietwat fletse passage twee jaar geleden, wist Stewart zich dit jaar te herpakken. Dit zijn enkele van zijn quotes: "

[Away From Her] was about a woman who forgets her husband.
Hillary Clinton called it the feelgood movie of the year."
"This is the environmentally-conscious green Oscars. So tonight our presenters will be walking all the way to the microphones."
"And the baby goes to... Angelina Jolie."
"In case you're wondering what we do in the commercial breaks, we sit here making catty remarks about the outfits you're wearing at home."
"Our next presenter [Penelope Cruz] speaks four languages, and earlier tonight she told me "I'm calling security" in all four of them."
"This year's slate: psychopathic killer movies. Does this town need a hug? All I can say is, thank God for teen pregnancy."
