2009 Oscar Winners Leaked?
'Slumdog Millionaire,' Mickey Rourke, Kate Winslet and Heath Ledger among rumored winnersLOS ANGELES --
Luckily for spoiler fans, by the time the original post was removed other media outlets like Cinematical.com had already picked up and copied the list of rumored winners.
Independent Spirit and Golden Globe winners Mickey Rourke, Kate Winslet and Heath Ledger dominating the acting categories gives the list credence, or could be some mighty fine guessing. Same goes for "Slumdog Millionaire" as a pick for best picture and Danny Boyle for best director.
Of course the Academy itself has denied to E! News that any such list could possibly exist, saying that as of Thursday (Feb. 19): "Pricewaterhouse Coopers is still counting the ballots, and there are only two people there who will know the complete list of winners in advance of the envelopes being opened during the ceremony."
