Other notable winners were “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire“: Mo’Nique won for ‘best supporting actress,’ and the film won for ‘best adapted screenplay.’ The animated film, “Up,” took home two as well: one for ‘best animated feature’ and another for ‘best original score.’

Awards were given out to “Music by Prudence” in the ‘best documentary’ (short subject) category, “Star Trek” for ‘best makeup,’ “Logorama” for ‘best short film’ (animated), and “The Weary Kind (theme from Crazy Heart)” won for ‘best original song.’
