Oscar Night: It's "Baby"!

by | February 28, 2005 | Comments

The race for Best Picture was between "Million Dollar Baby" and "The Aviator" coming in the award show Sunday, but when the night was over, "Million Dollar Baby" emerged with the win. The movie also landed Oscars in three major categories, including best director for Clint Eastwood, best actress for Hilary Swank, and best supporting actor for Morgan Freeman.

While the top prize eluded Martin Scorsese once again, his movie "The Aviator" didn’t go home entirely empty-handed, either. It took top honors in five categories, including those for best supporting actress for Cate Blanchett, best art direction for Dante Ferretti (art direction) and Francesca Lo Schiavo (set decoration), best cinematography for Robert Richardson, best costume design for Sandy Powell, and best film editing for Thelma Schoonmaker.

"Ray," the biopic about the late music legend Ray Charles, took two Oscars: best actor for Jamie Foxx and best sound mixing for Scott Millan, Greg Orloff, Bob Beemer, and Steve Cantamessa.

"Sideways" won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay for Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, with best original screenplay going to Charlie Kaufman for "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."

"The Incredibles" won best animated feature, besting "Shrek 2" and "Shark Tale."

The foreign language Oscar went to "The Sea Inside," and best visual effects went to John Dykstra, Scott Stokdyk, Anthony LaMolinara, and John Frazier for "Spider-Man 2."
