The OSCAR awards for 2010 were announced on March 07, 2010 in a ceremony held at Kodak Theatre, Hollywood. Officially the awards should be called the 82nd Academy Awards.
There was a tough competition between “Avtar” and “The Hurt Locker”. Avtar failed to win the maximum awards and could only manage three against six of The Hurt Locker. This reminded me of Slumdog Millionaire that won 8 awards in OSCAR Awards 2009.
