'No Country For Old Men' Wins Big, Complete List Of 2008 Oscar Winners

Favorite 'No Country For Old Men' won four Oscars at the 80th Academy Awards, more than any other film, including best movie, director and adapted screenplay.

The film's fourth award, for best supporting actor, went to Spain's Javier Bardem for playing a psychopathic killer of few words, becoming the first Spanish ever to win an Oscar.

"This is for Spain and this is for all of you," Bardem said.

Daniel Day-Lewis won his second best-actor Oscar for 'There Will Be Blood,' while Marion Cotillard (photosMarion Cotillard photos) was a surprise winner for best actress in 'La Vie En Rose' and Tilda Swinton took home best supporting actress for 'Michael Clayton'.

Interestingly, all four acting prizes went to Europeans: French Cotillard, Spanish Bardem, and Britishers Day-Lewis and Tilda Swinton. It's only the second time in Oscars' history that has happened, the only other time was in 1964.

Meanwhile, best animated film went to critic favorite 'Ratatouille' about a rat who dreams of becoming a chef and best original screenplay went to stripper turned writer Diablo Cody for teen pregnancy comedy 'Juno.' The Golden Compass, which didn't do exceedingly well at the box office, scored a bit of an upset win over 'Transformers' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean' for its visual effects.
