    Oscar’s were famous for their surprises …. but the 2008 & 2009 were different …. all the top runners won and still the shows were entertaining never the less …. So it’s simple rule, you never play the same gag for too long you play the next – The this time it worked like magic – no surprises yet everybody were awed by the awesome show

    bravo ACADEMY ….
