HELLO TO ALL, I am Dr Kramer!! I created this web page for your info on the Oscars for this year, and I will keep you up to date on other big events and big stories as they happen!! The 70th Annual Academy Awards were Monday, March 23!!!! The show lasted over half an hour longer than it was supposed to, but overall it was pretty good. Titanic was the big winner overall with 11 awards including Best Picture, tying Ben Hur for most ever! As Good As It Gets took home 2 awards for acting, both considered to be slight surprises.
