11:13 PM CT -- Best Picture

Man, they're going fast. After Scorsese, how will they let us down? This has been a pretty good night. Great host. Good segments (by and large) and... the winner is... The Departed. Wow! Who knew? My (figurative) money was on Babel but... Well, good. Great movie. Great honor for Scorsese. Could they actually have gotten it right this year? Well, let's sound a slightly sour note: It's not like all the best films were nominated. Or even most. Okay, enough of that. Go Scorsese!
