Fine, so you didn’t exactly need a functioning crystal ball to predict last night’s big Oscar winners. Christoph Waltz won for Best Supporting Actor for “Inglourious Basterds,” Mo’Nique won Best Supporting Actress for “Precious,” Jeff Bridges won Best Actor for “Crazy Heart,” and Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for “The Blind Side.” They were the exact same four to walk to the podium for both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, too. Best Picture was a semi toss-up—”Avatar” had won at the Golden Globes, while “The Hurt Locker” had cleaned up at other less mainstream awards shows—and volume ended up being the better predictor, as “The Hurt Locker” was the ultimate victor last night. Honestly, the only true surprise of the evening was in the Best Foreign Language Film category, where the Oscar was expected to go to “Un Prophete” or “The White Ribbon,” but instead “El Secreto de Sus Ojos” pulled off the upset.
So how did we at The Frisky fare with our predictions? A breakdown after the jump. Keep reading »
Last night, in perhaps the highlight of a very loooooong evening, Kathryn Bigelow won the award for Best Director, making her the first woman to win in the category, ever. (Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion, and Sofia Coppola were nominated, but didn’t come out victorious. Sigh.) Shockingly, only 17 percent of directors are female, which explains why it took until 2010 for someone with a vajayjay to win. We hope lots more women out there are inspired to pick up a camera and start making movies now.
After the jump, 10 reasons we are thrilled Kathryn was the one to make Oscar history. Keep reading »

I. told. you. so. Zach Galifianakis was SOLID GOLD as the host of “Saturday Night Live” last night, from the minute he walked on set during his opening monologue. The only thing to complain about — there wasn’t enough of him. While normally I’m happy to see hosts make minor appearances in plenty of the skits, Zach could have held his own against any of “SNL”‘s regular cast members. At least, that’s what he told me when we went on an imaginary date after the show. Keep reading »
