‘The Hurt Locker’ Takes 6

And when all was said and done, the little film that could, the lowest-grossing Best Picture winner in Oscar history, took home top honors at this year’s Academy Awards, placing Kathryn Bigelow among the ranks of Hollywood immortality.

It was a shame however that Up in the Air couldn’t muster up a single win, though the Precious Adapted Screenplay win was a pleasant surprise.

15/24 of my predictions were right on – and well, I could’ve done a lot worse.
