2/24/2008 No Country For Old Men is best picture
February 24, 2008. For the third year in a row (after Crash and The Departed) a crime-related movie won the Oscar for Best Picture. In fact, No Country For Old Men, a Coen brothers film based on Cormac McCarthy's novel, was nominated for eight Oscars and picked up four. It starred Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem, who picked up the little silver guy for Best Supporting Actor.
Am I the only one who thinks that poster looks like Brolin is being sneezed out of Bardem's schnozz?
