Hurt Locker dominates Oscars

Iraq war drama "The Hurt Locker" has dominated the 82nd Academy Awards, scooping six Oscars including best picture and best director. All the winners

Iraq war drama "The Hurt Locker" dominated the 82nd Academy Awards, scooping six Oscars including best picture and best director. The nerve-jangling movie about a US Army bomb disposal squad in Baghdad blew away it's rivals, with film maker Kathryn Bigelow becoming the first woman ever to win the Oscar for best director. "This really is, there's no other way to describe it, the moment of a lifetime," said Bigelow, only the fourth woman ever to be nominated for the best director award by Academy voters. "I'd like to dedicate this to the women and men in the military who risk their lives in a daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan and around the world," Bigelow added. "May they come home safe." The top acting honours went to Hollywood veterans Jeff Bridges for his performance as an alcoholic country singer in "Crazy Heart" and Sandra Bullock, for her role as a feisty housewife in the sports drama "The Blind Side". It was a perfectly scripted night at the Kodak Theater for Bigelow, whose low-budget film had been locked in a duel with "Avatar", the $500 million science-fiction epic directed by her ex-husband James Cameron. Cameron's phenomenally successful blockbuster - the highest-grossing film in history with more than $2.5 billion in earnings - finished the night with three Oscars, mostly in technical categories. The face-off between Bigelow and Cameron's films had been billed as the "Battle of the Exes" but the two film-makers smiled and joked throughout the evening as they sat just a few feet apart throughout the show. The acting awards largely followed the form-book, with Bridges finally landing an Oscar after four previous unsuccessful nominations. Bridges thanked his late parents in an acceptance speech which came 39 years after his first Oscar nomination. "Thank you mum and dad for turning me on to such a groovy profession," said a delighted Bridges, who had earlier welled up with tears after a moving tribute from Michelle Pfeiffer. Bullock meanwhile completed a uniquely dubious double with her best actress award, which came just 24 hours after she was crowned worst actress at the Razzies, the annual eve-of-Oscars parody. "Did I really earn this or did I just wear you all down?" said Bullock, whose Oscar-winning role was based on the true story of Leigh Anne Tuohy, who took in a homeless black teenager Michael Oher and helped set him on the road to an American football career. Bullock dedicated her win to "the moms that take care of babies and children no matter where they come from", and paid tribute to her late mother, Helga for "making me practise every day when I got home, piano, ballet". "And for reminding her daughters that there's no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual orientation, that make us better than anyone else. We are all deserving of love," she said. The supporting actor awards went to Austria's Christoph Waltz for his portrayal of a sadistic Nazi officer in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds", and Mo'Nique, a monstrous parent in harrowing drama "Precious". Mo'Nique's triumph made her only the only the fifth black actress in history to win an Oscar after Hattie McDaniel, Whoopi Goldberg, Halle Berry and Jennifer Hudson. The 42-year-old paid tribute to trailblazing "Gone With the Wind" actress McDaniel in her acceptance speech and later revealed she had picked out her Oscars outfit in honour of her predecessor. "I want to thank Miss Hattie McDaniel for enduring all that she had to so that I would not have to," Mo'Nique said. "The reason why I have on this royal blue dress is because it's the color that Hattie McDaniel wore in 1940 when she accepted her Oscar," Mo'Nique said. "So, for you, Miss Hattie McDaniel, I feel you all over me, and it's about time that the world feels you all over them. Waltz meanwhile was in raptures after collecting his statuette from Spanish siren Penelope Cruz. "Oscar and Penelope - that's uber bingo," a delighted Waltz said. "There's no way I can ever thank you enough but I can start right now - thank you." "Up", about an elderly gent who ties balloons to his home to live his dream of seeing the wilds of South America, took the award for best animated feature. Argentine movie "El Secreto de Sus Ojos" (The Secret in their Eyes) landed Argentina its first Oscar statuette in 25 years when it scooped the award for the best foreign film. Juan Jose Campanella's latest feature beat "Ajami" from Israel, "The Milk of Sorrow" from Peru, "Un Prophete" from France and "The White Ribbon" from Germany to win the Oscar prize for best foreign-language film. *AFP

New process leads to panic among jobseekers

As a UAE-based travel agent who processes tourist visas from the Philippines, Jennifer Pacia Gado is fielding a lot of calls from concerned travellers just now. And they are all asking the same question.  

“My clients are mostly Filipinos, and they [all want to know] about good conduct certificates,” says the 34-year-old Filipina, who has lived in the UAE for five years.

Ms Gado contacted the Philippines Embassy to get more information on the certificate so she can share it with her clients. She says many are worried about the process and associated costs – which could be as high as Dh500 to obtain and attest a good conduct certificate from the Philippines for jobseekers already living in the UAE. 

“They are worried about this because when they arrive here without the NBI [National Bureau of Investigation] clearance, it is a hassle because it takes time,” she says.

“They need to go first to the embassy to apply for the application of the NBI clearance. After that they have go to the police station [in the UAE] for the fingerprints. And then they will apply for the special power of attorney so that someone can finish the process in the Philippines. So it is a long process and more expensive if you are doing it from here.”

Day 1, Dubai Test: At a glance

Moment of the day Sadeera Samarawickrama set pulses racing with his strokeplay on his introduction to Test cricket. It reached a feverish peak when he stepped down the wicket and launched Yasir Shah, who many regard as the world’s leading spinner, back over his head for six. No matter that he was out soon after: it felt as though the future had arrived.

Stat of the day - 5 The last time Sri Lanka played a Test in Dubai – they won here in 2013 – they had four players in their XI who were known as wicketkeepers. This time they have gone one better. Each of Dinesh Chandimal, Kaushal Silva, Samarawickrama, Kusal Mendis, and Niroshan Dickwella – the nominated gloveman here – can keep wicket.

The verdict Sri Lanka want to make history by becoming the first team to beat Pakistan in a full Test series in the UAE. They could not have made a better start, first by winning the toss, then by scoring freely on an easy-paced pitch. The fact Yasir Shah found some turn on Day 1, too, will have interested their own spin bowlers.
