The 78th Annual Academy Awards

Well, the awards were last night (actually, early this morning South African time) and I look forward to watching the awards on M-Net tonight at 19:00.  Before I get into the winners, here are the nominees:


Keira Knightly

The Oscars website has quite a bit from the evening itself including a red carpet photo album.  Just scanning the gallery, Keira Knightly looked spectacular.  Local lass done good, Charlize Theron also looked spectacular.  They raise ’em good in Benoni!

  1. Charlize Theron’s Dress

    Some liked it, I don’t. It looks like an overdone nightgown. What’s with the big bow thing on the side. She totally couldn’t see what was going on on her left side. lol. Link: Neuvo: The 78th Annual Academy Awards.
