2009 Oscars: 'Benjamin Button' Gets Third, 'Slumdog Millionaire' Nabs Its Fourth


Showing their early domination at the 81st Annual Academy Awards, 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' nails its third golden man statuette and 'Slumdog Millionaire' collects two more.

Having collected the most nominations for the 81st Annual Academy Awards, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Slumdog Millionaire" have answered the Academy's expectation by showing early leads. While the traveler-tale "Benjamin Button" landed its third prize with Best Visual Effects, the rag-to-riches drama "Slumdog" brought in two additional kudos.

In addition to Best Achievement in Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay, "Slumdog" has collected Best Achievement in Editing and Best Sound Mixing. Whereas Best Achievement in Editing was given to Chris Dickens and Best Sound Mixing to Ian Tapp, Richard Pryke and Resul Pookutty, the Best Visual Effects for "Benjamin Button" was awarded to Eric Barba, Steve Preeg, Burt Dalton and Craig Barron.

On another Oscar winner, "The Dark Knight" has added one more golden man statuette. After picking up the Best Supporting Actor for its actor Heath Ledger, the blockbuster superhero movie won the Best Sound Editing for Richard King, besting over "Slumdog Millionaire", "Iron Man", "Wall-E" and "Wanted (2008)".

During the ceremony, the Academy also honored Jerry Lewis with a special award, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Accepting the kudo, Lewis commented that it "touches my heart and the very depth of my show because of where it comes from and who it benefits." He also added that it's a joy to be part of the movie business and how humbled he feels saying he never really expected to receive commendation for the good he did.
