Heath Ledger wins the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. One of the few I was pulling for to win. I was also pulling for Mickey Rourke to win best actor for his work In The Wrestler and for Marisa Tomei for Best Supporting Actress for her performance also in The Wrestler. Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner of the night. Benjamin Button also won a few awards, all technical including visual effects, art direction and best makeup. Dark Knight won best sound effects to go with Heath Ledger's win. Unfortunately, The Wrestler was only up in the two I mentioned earlier and won neither. Best Actor went to Sean Penn for Milk and Best Supporting Actress went to Penelope Cruz for Vicky Christina Barcelona. I'm not planning to watch either one of those films.
