James Cameron may be sitting on a pile of gold, but the shiny statuettes eluded him. Oscar year 2010 celebrated not Avatar, but a small war film, The Hurt Locker, which took home the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, making Kathryn Bigelow the first woman to ever win in that category. Meanwhile in the acting categories, Jeff Bridges (finally) nabbed one of the golden boys, Sandra Bullock was a first time winner, too, and Christoph Waltz and Mo’Nique won for their supporting performances. Who were the best and worst dressed—and behaved? Is the expanded Best Picture field here to stay? Larry Mantle hosts the Oscars morning-after show.
