Weekend awards recap



As we (and every other site that lives on the internet) blogged last Friday, this weekend was awards weekend.

To recap:

--Pretty much everything expected to win won, making for an excruciatingly dull Oscar night.
--Ryan Bingham, pictured above, won the second Oscar for "Crazy Heart," taking home the Best Original Song award for "The Weary Kind." He's familiar to Arkansans, having played Fayetteville and Fort Smith numerous times. He returns to George's Majestic Lounge on May 4.
--Ray Mckinnon won't compliment his Academy Award with a Spirit Award after Woody Harrelson nabbed it for his role in "The Messenger" (as reviewed by the Times' David Koon here).
--and reader Paul Jarnagin handily won the Rock Candy Oscar Pool, correctly guessing 18 of 24 awards and scoring 50 out of a possible 64 points and taking home eight free movie passes from Rave Theater on Colonel Glenn.

(speaking of blog contests, if anyone can make a caption for the picture above that makes me laugh harder than that picture does to begin with, I'll give you the burned copy of T-Bone's "The True False Identity" that's been floating around in my car for years.)
