I’ll say it now – I think Seth did a good job hosting. It’s the toughest gig in Hollywood and everyone should give the guy a break… There are children starving and people dying of illnesses in the world – do we really have to spend so much time complaining about how funny, or not funny, the host was. Puh-leaze. Ok, moving on.
SOOOO happy that Jennifer Lawrence won best actress although I was secretly pulling for Jessica Chastain. I watched The Help over the weekend and realized that Jessica played Celia Afoot (the blonde outcast) in it – she is amazing. But so was Jennifer Lawrence, so I was happy with the outcome there.
Also super happy that Christoph Waltz won – he did a fabulous job in Django Unchained. Well-deserved win.
Ecstatic that Ang Lee won the Directing award over Spielberg. Lee created a completely different world with Life of Pi.
We all knew Anne would win for Les Mis. Been there, done that.
I was happy that Argo won and thought Seth’s joke was hilarious about the story of Argo being so top-secret and unclassified that the academy didn’t even know who the director was. Ha – touché.
I thought Adele did a fantastic job singing Skyfall – yay she won Best Original Song!
Glad that Life of Pi won for Original Score – the composer is a fellow Canadian so I was somewhat biased but the music in the film was truly magical. Kudos. Same deal for Visual Effects – there was no way Life of PI wasn’t winning that one too.
I think out of all the films nominated for Best Picture this year, my top 3 were: Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook and Life of PI. But Django was great too. As was Argo. I still can’t pick a favourite!! It was a great year in movies – already looking forward to next year! 🙂
