Oscar night: Mo’Nique wins best supporting actress

In a sad break with tradition, Robin Williams comes out to present best supporting actress; generally the acting awards are given by the previous year’s winner, but Heath Ledger isn’t here. And the winner is . . . Mo’Nique, but of course. She makes her way slowly to the podium and gives a poised, graceful speech, making a point of thanking the Academy for “proving that it’s about the performance, not the politics” (presumably a reference to her refusal to “campaign” for the award).
