I think you both did well in your predictions... I'm certainly not surprised that Slumdog Millionaire swept the categories.

I'm not surprised that Slumdog won, but will it be remembered? I don't think it has the staying power of OSCAR films like Gone With the Wind, In the Heat of the Night or even Titanic. The highlight of the evening was Dustin Lance Black's acceptance speech for MILK, a film that will hold up over time.
