2008 OSCARS: Award Results (8 out of 8)

Mad Professah scored a perfect 8 for 8 in my predictions in the Top categories of Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Original Screenplay and Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars this year.
Picture: No Country for Old Men
Director: Joel and Ethan Coen, No Country for Old Men
Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
Actress: Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose
Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem, No Country for Old Men
Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton
Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody, Juno
Adapted Screenplay: Joel and Ethan Coen, No Country for Old Men

Although these were the only categories I publicly made predictions in, I also predicted both Sound categories correctly for The Bourne Ultimatum and Best Score for Atonement and Best Costume design for Elizabeth: The Golden Age as well as "Falling Slowly" from Close winnning Best Song. Overall, MadProfessah was correct in 18 of 24 categories.

The most satisfying win of the night was Freeheld for Best Documentary, Short Subject. The movie is about police officer Laurel Hester's fight to make sure that her domestic partner recieved her survivor's benefits in New Jersey.

Other gay moments at the Oscars were openly gay producer Scott Rudin finally winning the Best Picture Academy Award and thanking his male partner.

Final totals were No Country for Old Men with 4 Oscars, The Bourne Ultimatum won 3 and There Will Be Blood and La Vie en Rose each won 2.
