LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Iraq War drama "The Hurt Locker" won best picture and five other prizes Sunday at the Academy Awards, its haul including best director for Kathryn Bigelow.
Bigelow is the first woman in the 82-year history of the Oscars to earn Hollywood's top prize for filmmakers.
I can't remember a year when it seemed easier to predict the Oscars. Those words may come back to haunt me, but there you have it. Of the top eight categories, seven look like sure things. The only dicey one is best picture, and although "Avatar" may roll in on its record-breaking profits, I think it's a win for "The Hurt Locker."
The deadline to enter the contest has passed, but you can still print out the page and circle your picks for Oscar winners.
