And the winner is...

Tonight is the Oscars, and while the night is normally a huge night of self-congratulations, tonight's ceremony is even more so. Thanks to the writers' strike, the awards season was cut short. However, I think there are a few categories terribly looked over this year.

Hottest Bob Haircut:
Saoirse Ronan in Atonement
Keira Knightley in Atonement
Nicole Kidman in The Golden Compass

The winner is: Saoirse Ronan

Best Bones:
Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Keira Knightley in Atonement
Johnny Depp in Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber on Fleet Street

The winner is: Keira Knightley

Most couture moment:
Keira Knightley's green gown in Atonement
Cate Blanchett's gowns in Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Marion Cottilliard in La Vie en Rose

The winner is: Keira Knightley's green gown.

It seems that Atonement is the best visual film of the year, which makes up for its horrible, flimsy plot and for suddenly bringing Vanessa Redgrave back from her year of magical thinking or whatever.

I think the winners summed up the entire plot of the film: bobs, bones, and couture.

you forgot to mention "evening" with its Cape Cod-chic. i think it should get an award, too.

although, it was quite the estrogen-fest.
