Sean Penn surprisingly beat Mickey Rourke and took home the Lead Actor Award for his portrayal of Harvey Milk in Milk. Although Rourke didn’t end up getting his all-time get laid pass winning, we have to say that Rourke has made a dramatic almost miraculous comeback.

This wasn’t Sean Penn’s first Oscar win, in fact this is the 48-year old’s second Oscar. It was certainly good to see Sean and his wife Robin Wright looking like a happily married couple again.

The late Heath Ledger posthumously won the Best Supporting Actor Award for his spectacular role as the Joker in the Dark Knight. It was an emotional moment when his mother, father and sister accepted the Award on stage.

Penelope Cruz took home the Best Supporting Actress Award for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

Another year another Oscar. Congratulations to all the Oscar winners.
