Sweeney Todd Cuts Oscar’s Throat

Sweeney Todd wins an Oscar. No, it wasn’t Johnny Depp in the Best Actor category, but rather “Best Achievement in Art Direction”.

Did it deserve the award? Probably not, but it’s still great to see a horror film grab an award. Of course, tonight was just the JV league. Tomorrow night, the Varsity comes center stage as the First Annual Splatcademy Awards honor the real films, directors, and moments worth rewarding.

The best has been saved for last. Join us on the red carpet of Splattercast 67, Monday night.

p.s. I was glad to see No Country sweep the big awards, and puzzled by The Bourne Ultimatum winning a bunch of technical stuff?

  3. Johnny Depp and Sweeney Todd rules! he is like HOT!!! all you ppl who say its boring are wrong! it totally rocks!

  4. Saw this movie, it was better than the musical. Johnny Depp Shines here as he does in any of his movies. However, this was fantastic. Congrats to Johnny for making another winner!

  5. Too be honest, this film completely deserved that award. And it potentially deserved a lot more. Best Actor. Best Actress. Best Director. ANd possibly dare I say, best film of the year? Their acting was absolutely sublime and they just presented the characters so beautifully. Also, it couldn’t have ben possible to love these characters without the outstanding skills of Tim Burton. And may i stress that Helena Bonham Carter did NOT get this role because of her relations to Tim. She got it genuinely on skill and talent, and well deserved.

    It was a fantastic film. Good day to you all! :)
