    80th Academy Awards Held in Los Angeles, “No Country for Old Men” Wins Best Picture

    On this day in 2008, the 80th Academy Awards ceremony was held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony was hosted by Jon Stewart and broadcast live on ABC.

    The big winner of the night was the crime thriller “No Country for Old Men,” directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, which took home four awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem’s chilling portrayal of the film’s antagonist, Anton Chigurh.

    Other notable winners included Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor in “There Will Be Blood,” Marion Cotillard for Best Actress in “La Vie en Rose,” and Tilda Swinton for Best Supporting Actress in “Michael Clayton.”

    The ceremony also included a tribute to the late Heath Ledger, who posthumously won Best Supporting Actor for his iconic performance as the Joker in “The Dark Knight.”

    Overall, the 80th Academy Awards were a celebration of the best in film from the previous year, and marked another memorable night in Hollywood’s storied history.
