Winners of Them Ol' Academy Awards

March 8, 2010


Because you demanded certain individuals be recognized for doing a great job pretending to be someone else for a camera, some naked, golden men with swords were handed out Sunday night. Many backs were patted, Ben Stiller tested how long people would politely chuckle at the joke "I'm wearing funny makeup," onlookers were given the painful reminder that Dom DeLuise died, and we the home-viewing audience stared at extreme face close-ups for uncomfortably long periods of time. And then it was midnight.

Here's who won things, highlighted with boldness:
