The Oscars came and went, and now here I am, telling you guys what I thought. In general, I was pleased, but there were some exceptions, as usual.
First of all, what did I think about Seth McFarlane? He was ok. Many jokes were out of place/vulgar, some others were ok. I want Hugh Jackman back.
And now, for the winners with my comments (Taken from Deadline Hollywood):
ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained – I couldn’t agree more. He was AMAZING.
ANIMATED SHORT FILM
Paperman - BEAUTIFUL!! The perfect mix between CGI and classic animation. And it’s cute.
Brave - Was it better than the other nominees? I think so. Was it the abolutely best animated film from 2012? Nah.
