As you probably all know the oscars (Academy Awards) were presented yesterday. Because I live in the Netherlands the show was on television in the middle of the night, so I had to tape it. But as I only had a video tape of four hours and the show was drawn out I missed the last and most important award for Best Picture. Which really is too bad because 'Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' finally won! The movie was nominated for 11 oscars and they won all 11 including the two major awards, Best Picture and Directing. The only two movies in the Academy Awards history that were also awarded 11 oscars were 'Ben-Hur' and 'Titanic'. Finally some justice and recognition! They most certainly deserved all of them!
