CoensThe 80th Academy Awards ceremony yielded its highest honours to my favourite film of 2007, the Coen Brothers’ No Country For Old Men:

Joel and Ethan Coen’s No Country for Old Men, considered the frontrunner going into the ceremony, lived up to expectations, racking up a leading four Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem. In accepting the Best Director honor, Joel Coen recalled the experience of making movies alongside his brother since childhood. “What we do now doesn’t feel that much different from what we were doing then,” Joel Coen said. “We’re very thankful to all of you out there for continuing to let us play in our corner of the sandbox.”

For those of you who still haven’t seen this movie, get it on DVD (available March 11th); it’s a trip.
