BIG win for Anne Hathaway!! ~~ and Meryl Streep. I mean, not such a big win for Meryl ‘coz she’s got a gazillion awards, but it was BIG for Anne… and her speech, I liked that it was mostly not about her.

I got 12/16, pretty amazing~~ Slumdog Millionaire won BIG too., including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Young Actor, and Best Composer (aka, Best Score). Not sure about the score win, but oh well. Also… BIG loss for Benjamin Button.

Other winners… Milk for Best Ensemble and Best Actor, The Dark Knight for Best Supporting Actor, Best Action Movie.  And Kate Winslet for The Reader, which I haven’t seen yet~~ For the winners, go here.

ARGH, I hate anvils… they bring bad memories to my shipping heart.

Found this MTV – inside: Yu Aoi, that they probably aired for the release of Dandelion back in 2007 with photographer Yoko Takahashi (aka. Yoko-san) who photographed Yu on Travel Sand (USA, and a bit of Mexico) and Dandelion (Russia).

No subs, does anybody know what they are talking throughout all the video? After the break~
