I wasn’t able to watch it live because I was fast asleep… so I just hopped on over to the Academy Awards website and snuck a peek at the winners…

Surprising that Broke Back Mountain didn’t runaway with the best picture award (that went to Crash) as what was initially predicted… they got however, best director, adapted screenplay and original score… Crash and Broke Back Mountain went home with 3 awards, surprisingly so did the movie Memoirs of a Geisha (Art Direction, Cinematography, and Costume Design)

Looks like a well balanced Oscar’s night to me…

I think they were given free hand by George Lucas to develop the cartoon based on a storyline plot that he gave. Talk about wetting our apetites for Episode 3 as well as fill in the gaps between episode 2 and 3. It’s basically old formula already, as the Wachowski brothers already did this with the Animatrix for the Matrix Series.
