Submitted by Sunil Chaudhary on Sun, 2007-02-25 21:27.

This is the night when the stars descend on the Kodak theatre and pose and pout and ultimately collect the trophies which will change their careers in more ways than one. We couldn't be there to capture the moments live, but we did watch it on TV like millions of others and you know what it's nice to have an unobstructed view of the stage....

This is the year when Martin Scorcese finally won an award and his film won the best picture as well, the rest was mostly as predicted except for a few surprises. Pan's Labyrinth missed out on best foreign film oscar which was really surprising.
