So far, Hugh Jackman is an affable and pleasant host but not exactly exciting.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Daniel Craig with art direction. Winner: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Which is a great looking movie, if not a great movie. (See my previous post for more thoughts on "Button.")
Costume design (which Parker could have used more of with her dress). Winner: "The Duchess." The man accepting says that the music being played as he went onstage is not music from "The Duchess."
Makeup. Winner: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." "Dark Knight" was pretty amazing, too, and there are times in "Button" when Cate Blanchett doesn't look right.
Amanda Seyfried and Robert Pattinson flatly introduce clips of romance in movies in 2008. Good to include a kissing clip from "Milk."
