The Best Screenplay was Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber's (500) Days of Summer, followed by Reitman and Sheldon Turner's Up in the Air.

The Best Documentary was Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story, followed by the rockumentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The Best Animated Film was Pete Docter's Up and the runner-up was Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox. Red Cliff was the Best Foreign Film, followed by Treeless Mountain.
