The win for Crash for Best Picture was certainly a surprise and a very pleasant one at that, as in my opinion it was the only film nominated that deserved to win.

I managed to catch around 2 hours nap prior to the Oscars and around 1 hours after – strangely I’m not feeling tired at the moment (now 11:00 in the morning). This evening may be a different story – I really am a loon!
