The Oscars: through international eyes

By Alina Faustman.
If you missed the 2009 Academy Awards then here’s your quick-fix on this years Oscar buzz. The Oscars had many surprises that made the show more upbeat and less of a downer award show. Hosted by the sexiest man alive according to People Magazine, Hugh Jackman was the best host yet. Not only did his Australian accent charm all that were in attendance and tuning in but he also sang and danced alongside Beyonce, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and “Mama Mia’s” Amanda Seyfried. Basically, Jackman was a triple threat of delight. His opening number had me laughing and tapping my feet. What a charmer! Best supporting actress went to Penelope Cruz for her role in “Vicky Christina Barcelona.”
