    Grant Heslov’s speech to the Academy was awesome (and quite pointed), while DDL make me chuckle referring to Meryl Streep.

    And Seth MacFarlane wasn’t THAT bad….

    I’m thrilled Argo won.

    Seth was very funny.

    DDL’s speech was fantastic.

    Lee winning for director is ridiculous. He should have at least acknowledged Affleck seeing as he was the righful winner. He won every pre-cursor to the oscars. That’s a very big snub imo.

    Life of Pi winning best cinematography is quite silly. This is a film that looks to be about 75-80% CGI so how can you give it best cinematography over other greats like the iconic Roger Deakins? Terrible choice.

    Lawrence was great in SLP and it’s nice to see her win, but imo, Riva gave the performance of a lifetime, one of the best female performances I have ever seen, up there with Theron in Monster. So a little bittersweet imo.

    There was way too much focus on Chicago this year. It was a mediocre film that won best picture in 2002, robbing The Pianist and they honoured it again, which is ridiculous.

    Quentin and Waltz were great winners and overall it was a decent show in regards to the winners.

    I was shocked that Waltz won Best Supporting Actor again so soon and that Tarantino nabbed Best Original Screenplay. I wasn’t suspecting Life of Pi would rack up that many awards considering I didn’t think it was mind-blowing. Best Director made sense considering people said the book was unfilmable, but I thought Skyfall was robbed in the Best Score and Cinematography categories. I also couldn’t believr that Brave took Best Animated. I though Wreck-It.Ralph or ParaNorman were much more deserving. I was pretty happy with everything else.
