Who watched the Academy Awards ceremony? Meeeeee!!! These are the winners, and some of my impressions about them.
Best Cinematography: Robert Richardson, “Hugo”
Best Art Direction: Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schavo, “Hugo” – I’m sorry, I was rooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. I can’t be happy for Hugo.
Best Costume Design: Mark Bridges, “The Artist”
Best Makeup: Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland, “The Iron Lady” – While I can see the extraordinary work these people did, Deathly Hallows should have won this category. Sorry.
Best Foreign Language Film: “A Separation”
Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, “The Help”
Best Editing: Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”
Best Sound Editing: Phillip Stockton and Eugene Gearty, “Hugo”

Best Visual Effects: “Hugo” – No!!!!! Deathly Hallows!!!!
Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer, “Beginners”

Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius, “The Artist”
Best Actor: Jean Dujardin, “The Artist” – I reaaaaally wanted Gary Oldman to win this one… but I guess the best man won.
Best Actress: Meryl Streep, “The Iron Lady” – YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!
Best Picture: “The Artist” – Ok, now I definitely have to watch it. And I hear the dog is excellent.
I have to say that Billy Crystal was awesome, especially when he read people’s (and a dog’s) minds. His jokes were good and tasteful, and funny!! I also LOVED when Colin Firth addressed Meryl Streep. Hilarious! That man has such a funny way to say things. Oh, and when Ms. Streep won for Best Actress… I was actually crying. So emotional!! And she deserved it so badly!!!
