Brokeback Mountain
Via I Believe in Advertising: These Australian ads for movies, themed to the Olympics, are pretty ingenious. Gotta love that they spoofed Brokeback Mountain without being offensive. Keep reading for all the best ones...

Wings

First-ever Best Picture Oscar winner Wings

Wow, The Hurt Locker wins it all...and it wasn't even the most successful film ever made, nor did it rake in over $100 million in its opening weekend (or ever)!

Deserved.

The show was...slow. And uninspiring. But as always, unmissable.

Barbra Streisand is rocking the schoolmarm look and seems ultrapleased to be handing the first-ever Best Director Oscar to a woman...even if it's not to Barbra Streisand. (TERRIBLE CAMERA WORK is keeping us from seeing the money shots when these people win at times...and playing her off to "I Am Woman" = lame!)

After Oprah's speech, it almost seemed like Gabourey might sneak up on the front-runners and win the thing! Meryl Streep's intro by Stanley Tucci is hilarious.

Sandra Bullock sure looks pretty...and pretty nervous! She seems like such a good person. This would be what gives her the Oscar if she wins it, 'cuz even if she was amazing in The Blind Side, Meryl Streep is amazing in everything. (Even Prime!)

Loved the actors' remembrances before each of the Best Actors' names were announced, though they ran a bit long and how embarrassing that they couldn't get anyone better for Renner than Colin Farrell due to their co-starring stint in S.W.A.T. No one could top Pfeiffer's tribute to Jeff Bridges (please remind me all the amazing films he's made?), but I sure wish this one had gone to Colin Firth!

Ah, to be handed an Oscar by Kate Winslet...imagine?

Oh, that's right...The Last Picture Show (but I refuse to count Starman)

Untitled26

In L'Uomo Vogue (February 2009), an old Bruce Weber portfolio of Heath Ledger is reproduced to torture us with his lost beauty and remind us of his talent. He'll be winning an Oscar, deservedly.
