I don't hate Little Miss Sunshine - actually I really like it a lot. I just feel that Pan's Labarynth was a better script.
Alan Arkin was good but I felt that his award was more of recognition for his career instead of that particular film. I would have liked to have seen Eddie Murphy win this one for Dreamgirls (don't hate me) because we finally got a chance to see him act.
I am glad that Scorcese won director - both for this film and his entire career. As for best picture, I would have been happy to see any of the films win since they are all strong for different reasons (though I voted for Babel in our pool).
Either way, Oscars are like the "most popular" award in high school. It is not about what is best but who has the most hype.
