No Country for Old Men won Best Picture at the Oscars last night. The film was based on the book, No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy. The camera kept cutting away to Cormac in the audience to get his reaction when the film won best picture, but he kept up his poker face. No crying, laughing, not even a smile. Sigh. Clearly, no one prepped him beforehand on how to have the appropriate, camera-ready reaction in case of a win.

Seen backstage with their Oscars are Ethan Coen, Harvey Weinstein, and Joel Coen. They're all looking pretty happy. The Coen brother had a huge night, picking up Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
