Slumdog Millionaire cleans house with 5 awards clearly keeping its early favorite status. Sean Penn is still making the competition interesting with Mickey Rourke for Best Actor. Kate Winslet may yet win an Oscar this year but for Best Supporting Actress (the role does seem more baity). Will Waltz With Bashir take the Foreign Language Film award this year? What do you think?
