- Best Screenplay: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men
- Best Original Score: Dario Marianelli for Atonement
- Best Original Song: Eddie Vedder for "Guaranteed" from Into the Wild
What does this all mean for the Big Show? Well, their Best Picture wins may help boost the chances of Atonement (which really needed this) and Sweeney Todd (although it didn't help Dreamgirls last year), but the film that could most benefit is Diving Bell, especially with the surprise Best Director win for Julian Schnabel. I tell you, I strongly expect it to be in the Oscars' top five come nomination morning.
In closing: wasn't it ironic that the first award given was to a movie titled I'm Not There?
