Yes, adapted screenplay is a no-brainer. None of the others were particularly surprising.

Gotta go with Precious for Adapted Screenplay, although The Hurt Locker for Sound Effects boggles my mind.

Voted other -- The New Tenants winning live action short. Because it's not just bad, it's annoying and with no apparent redeeming social value that would at least explain its selection.

All of these were either my guesses for what would win (Adapted Screenplay, Foreign Film) or my runners-up. I'd say Animated Short was my biggest surprise of the night; though in that case my runner-up won too, I placed it in that slot as a formality, thinking the Wallace & Grommit film was a shoo-in.

Neither the live-action or doc short winners were in my top two guesses, but honestly they were no more than guesses and so I was unsurprised to see something I hadn't considered take the prize in both cases.

I expected The Hurt Locker to win both sound categories.

Precious' win for Best Adapted Screenplay over Up in the Air; An Education and In the Loop was the only real surprise of the evening.

Definitely adapted screenplay. I thought listing Precious as runner-up was akin to placing Maggie Gyllenhaal's behind Mo'Nique (as in, might as well write in Bozo the Clown, for all the likelihood).

Which category had the biggest surprise win for you. For me it was Sound Editing, which I thought was even more of a lock for Avatar than Sound Mixing to go along with Art Direction and, of course, Visual Effects.
