‘Hurt Locker’ Leads Pack with Four Wins at 2009 Satellite Awards


The winners of the 2009 Satellite Awards were announced and The Hurt Locker was again the big winner with four awards including Best Picture (Drama), Director for Kathryn Bigelow, Actor (Drama) for Jeremy Renner and Film Editing. Precious won for Supporting Actress (Mo’Nique) and Adapted Screenplay while Christoph Waltz continued to rack up Supporting Actor awards for his turn in Inglourious Basterds.

Perhaps most surprising to me is the continuous stream of victories for Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia, again, not because I didn’t like her performance, but up until the critical awards began being announced Carey Mulligan in An Education was the clear front-runner. However, I am beginning to think the tide has turned and Streep’s excellent turn as Julia Child may be able to take home the Oscar.
