So, 5/9… not bad, not great. It was good to see Pan’s Labyrinth did pick up 3 oscars (Makeup, Cinematography & Art Direction) even if they weren’t the ones i hoped they would be. The Departed did really well too (congrats to Mr. Scorsese on finally getting the much over due Best Director award!) Roll on next year!
