And the Oscars went to:

The 79th Academy Awards ended with a bang; the whimpers came from Oscar-pool players watching a number of favorites get taken down during the long ceremony — Alan Arkin standing in the Sunshine instead of Eddie Murphy; the penguins of Happy Feet kicking the tires off Pixar's Cars; Melissa Etheridge's ''I Need to Wake Up'' putting three nominated songs from Dreamgirls to sleep. Smart-money favorites came through at the end with wins for Helen Mirren (The Queen), Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), and — finally! — Martin Scorsese (The Departed). Then, the unpredictability returned with a mild surprise in a Best Picture race that had no clear-cut front-runner, as the Academy pulled the trigger once again for Scorsese's violent Boston gangster/cop tale, which led the night with four total awards. Other multiple winners included Pan's Labyrinth with three, and Little Miss Sunshine, Dreamgirls, and An Inconvenient Truth, each with two.
