No insanse surprises, except the virtual shutout for The Dark Knight in the main categories. Also notably absent is Bruce Springstein’s song “The Wrestler” from the Original Song category. I also enjoyed that Forest Whitaker couldn’t even keep a straight face when he announced Robert Downey, Jr. for Best Supporting Actor.
