Yay for Ang Lee - He's got an Oscar at last. He's done better directing work but at least he's now got one.
Yay for George Clooney - He was kind of disadvantaged by being George Clooney. Thought the academy would be a bit too snobby to give it to him but it was well deserved.
Yay for Wallace and Gromit and Rachel Weisz - Rule Britania! Love Weisz. She should have got awards before now. Better than Knightely any day.
Yay for King Kong - Great to see them get the special effects award. Kong himself was an absolute triumph of acting and technology.
