To check all the award winners go here.

The first major awards of the season are in and some winners probably means nominations for 2009 BAFTA’s. Even if I haven’t seen Slumdog Millionaire have to say that was a surprise that won as my favorite was Hunger. Also Waltz With Bashir winning was surprising when competing with extremely good movies, but I imagine that the movie has to be very powerful; hope I’m able to see it soon.
