Jackman, Miley and those cute Slumdog kids — Oscar winners or losers?
Hugh Jackman brought his singing and dancing act to the Oscar awards ceremony and “Slumdog Millionaire” walked off with a leading 8 Oscars.
Viewership for Sunday’s telecast was up from last year but how much did that have to do with new host Jackman, stars like Beyonce, and the much-anticipated best supporting actor award for Australia’s Heath Ledger after his death?
The cute “Slumdog” kids in their mini tuxedos and party dresses, flown over from Mumbai, melted the hearts of those on the red carpet.
But Miley Cyrus got the thumbs down from some fashionistas for her flouncy gown and got the “worst red carpet quote” award from readers of the Moviefone.com site for this gem.
“Hopefully I’ll be here getting something for it next year. It’s a lot more real and deeper than people would expect the movie to be,” the 16 year-old Disney teen star said of her Oscar wishes for the upcoming “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”
Some 73 percent of Popeater.com readers polled said they hadn’t even seen “Slumdog Millionaire.”
Will that Oscar haul now encourage you to go and see the movie? Should Hugh Jackman come back next year as Oscars host, and who were the night’s winners as far as you were concerned?
