A latin product, far away from the typical VFX blockbuster (and a certain clientele*... ;-) gave the first Oscar award to a feature shot on RED.

Congrats boys !

It's interesting, these trends... Best Picture went to a movie shot in Super-16 film, Best Foreign Language Film went to a movie shot on the Red One, and Best Cinematography went to an all-digital movie with a portion of live action shot on Sony HD video.

So on the one hand, digital is obviously making inroads, on the other, Super-16 -- which with its grain and softness is sort of the "Anti-Digital" format -- is not dead after all....

Film (it is good to see it alive and kicking) or digital, the important is that both are handleABLE (= affordable, capable of being on budget -- Scarlet?).
