On what I thought about the Oscars!!

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):

  1. You definitely have to watch Life of Pi! Overall, a predictable Oscars. I’m happiest for Ang Lee for winning Best Director, though it’s funny he’s won that award twice but he’s never won a Best Picture Oscar (the time before was for directing Brokeback Mountain, losing to Crash).

  2. I will not watch Argo because of the fact that they give the credit to the Americans. Even Jimmy Carter says it was 90% Canadian, 10% American, but Ben Affleck (of whom I am NOT a fan) re-wrote history. I haven’t seen any of these movies, not a big fan of award shows, but I do want to see Silver Linings Playbook and Les Mis. I am thrilled that Jennifer Lawrence won, she is so talented. Not a fan of DDL or Anne Hathaway, so not thrilled they won, and have only seen Waltz in Carnage, but he was terrific in that.

Please let me know what you think!!
