A stunned Tilda Swinton wins best supporting actress, for her role as an over-achieving corporate lawyer in Michael Clayton. No-one looked more surprised than Swinton, who blanched visibly as her name was read out (instead of Cate Blanchett, the favourite), then mouthed "wow!" more than once as she popped out of her seat.

Swinton proceeded to be cool, and funny, as she commented on Oscar's rear end and lavishly thanked her US agent. She gets my vote, incidentally, for best haircut.
