The Oscar winners and our impressions of the night as a whole

02.27.2012

And so, another edition of the Academy Awards is in the books. Overall, this was a predictable end to a rather predictable year at the Oscars. I think we all knew, once the nominations were released, and films like DRIVE and TAKE SHELTER were ignored that this would be a fairly ho-hum affair, and it was. Really, the only surprise (to me anyways) was Meryl Streep taking home the Oscar for THE IRON LADY, as I was certain Viola Davis was going to win.

Other than that, no huge surprises. Jean Dujardin and THE ARTIST continued it's streak, and hopefully the talented Jean Dujardin will go on to a successful Hollywood career. If not, well, he's already the biggest thing in France since Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon, so there's always that...

The biggest upset of the evening for me was the way Sacha Baron Cohen was completely ignored as THE DICTATOR, although the sharp-eyed among you might have spotted him in the background when Michelle Williams was being interviewed. Over on E!, he caused a bit of controversy by spilling what he claimed to be Kim Jong Il's ashes over a pissed-off Ryan Seacrest. Damn, I should have watched E!


As for host Billy Crystal, he did a safe but commendable job as host. He was about the same as he's been in the other eight years that he hosted. I'm sure the Academy was thrilled to have him back. His jokes were light, pleasant, and totally non-offensive (save for a slight jab at Christian Bale, warning that the audience was in his eye line) and the A-listers ate him up. His mind-reading bit was kinda funny, and it gave THE ARTIST's Uggie his moment to shine (although the pooch looked tuckered out by the end). I thought his opening montage was a tad cheesy, but fun- and his song & dance, well, it's Billy...

WHY THE OSCARS SUCK NOW

Billy Crystal couldn't save this screaming pile. The problem with the Academy Awards are... its the Academy Awards. 6000 voters have no business defining what WE THE PEOPLE like. People's Choice awards are now ONLINE and open for people that LOVE TV AND MOVIES. It's time WE TELL Hollywood what is amazing. Maybe it's time those CRITICS get their shitty 10 best put into 'for the people's consideration' Oscar has lost it's meaning... and by the way, Harry Potter not getting nominated for 8

The Academy isn't trying to tell what to like, the Academy is rewarding what the Academy likes.


And Harry Potter is mediocre at best.

RANGO... SHUT UP WHITE MEN...

Dude, just tired of all the Rango hatin'. [link] listen up: Rango clearly wasn't made for you. It was made for audiences like me and because you didn't like it, shows how culturally ignorant you haters are. Thanks for provin' the Academy needs to stay to 6000 voters again. Appreciate it... Seacrest outed.

I didn't watch, and thank god for that. "The Artist" is incredibly overrated. While I thought "Hugo" was good (not great though) it's effects weren't soo much. At least "Bridesmaids" won jack shit. All in all safe, stupid, and fucking wrong in most regards.

I do agree that Apes got screwed for visual effects, the last 20 mins were spectacular & had me glued to the screen, plus lets face it do these award shows ever acknowledge movies the public actually enjoys. Still thinks its hilarious a silent film was the best movie last year though.

I know this paticular type of Bitching is frowned upon but...

Why the hell wasn't Michael Gough featured during the "In Memoriam" tribute? C'mon...we're talking about an awesome English character actor who was in over 150 films...including the classic Hammer Horror films!

This is Alfred Pennyworth!

That & (no offense, Marty) "Hugo" winning Best Visual Effects OVER Andy Serkis'/WETA's work on "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes?

This awards show is a fuckin' farce..on Planet Bullshit...in the galaxy of this sucks camel dicks!

The only real surprise, other than Meryl Streep, was.....

that peice of shit film "Rango" winning for Best Animated Film.

Good animation, but lack of good storytelling ultimatel;y caused the film's downfall.

Note: Upon further consideration, the Academy yanked the award from him and gave it to much sperior animated films "TinTin" and "Cars 2". An apology card was issued with it, saying simply: "We're sorry. We f***ed up bad."

A ho-hum Oscars for a ho-hum list of movies. The only highlight of the night was Emma Stone presenting and jabbing that clout Ben Stiller.

Best Cinematography?

Hugo? I mean I'll be honest when I say that I actually hated The Tree of Life. I thought it was pretentious as all hell and even Sean Penn didn't know what the fuck was happening in that movie. But the cinematography was WAY better than Hugo! I mean really?!

Honestly, I didn't give a shit about this year's oscars. The show was predictable and kind of boring.
I am more excited to see if the Dark Knight Rises can make it to next year's oscars, obviously if it surpases 2008 The Dark Knight(an actual masterpiece). That would be interesting, an important precedent, and also would set the definitive(and almost impossible) standard for comic book movies.

The Oscars were last night?!

I lost track and didn't even realize they were on. In past years, i've made a spectacle of the night but I guess i've lost interest. I used to live in LA but since I got to the mid-west I have lost touch, especially because film's like Thea Artist, My Week with Marlyn, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close weren't even in theaters around here.

Also, RANGO sucked!

Better Than Last Year

The Artist was my #1 film of 2011, so I was happy it won Best Picture. Jean Dujardin is very charming and I hope he has a great career in America. I was just happy to see Gary Oldman finally make it to the big show. I really thought Viola would win but my heart was with Rooney or Michelle. Iím glad The Muppets won Best Song, but it would have been even better if they performed it. Apes really got screwed over with the visual effects award and once again, Harry Potter got no love from The

Iím glad The Muppets won Best Song, but it would have been even better if they performed it. Apes really got screwed over with the visual effects award and once again, Harry Potter got no love from The Academy. At least Dragon Tattoo won Film Editing. As a big Billy Crystal fan, this was probably his most subdued. I blame the fact that he was called on last minute and the push to get the show under 3 hours really didnít have him more free than he was in previous shows. His medley should have been longer (damn 9 picture nominees) and I miss when he works the crowd. But he is still the classiest host we have today and Iíll have him do it again any day.


P.S. I am officially in love with Emma Stone! Is there any way her and Ben Stiller can host next year, alonf with Robert Downey Jr?

Very predictable yet again though the Meryl Streep win was quite a surprise and the show itself was at least better than last years but in the end no one that I truly wanted to win won like Michelle Williams or even get nominated like Leonardo Dicaprio. Out with the old farts of voters who rarely take a chance and in with the new voters please.

I said it last night...in recent years, all the oscars do is constantly remind me that there used to be great movies released in theaters. Movies that actually stick with you months and months after release. I can't even remember the last movie I loved. There are no Forrest Gumps. No Gladiators. No Shawshank Redemptions. No American Beauties. Its just sad what modern day cinema has come to.

Billy Crystal was a breath of fresh air after the mismatched co-hostings of the last couple of years. The awards seemed mostly justified. I was surprised by the Streep win, but in hindsight, she deserved it after all the times in the last thirty years she sat there patiently. I figured it would be Viola Davis, too.

I knew Supporting Actress would be either Octavia or Janet McTeer, though I had hoped for Melissa McCarthy. Christopher Plummer gave the most professional acceptance speech, and I liked particularly his acknowledgement of Max von Sydow, after on the red carpet the woman failed to acknowledge he wasn't the only actor who could break the age record. "The Artist" wins were refreshing, as they all seemed like a bunch of wide-eyed outsiders who wanted nothing more than to honor Old Hollywood. "Hugo" might have been about film origins, but these guys went out of their way to honor the same people who made the Oscars what it is today. And kudos to Pixar for finally making something so unimpressive it gave someone else a chance to shine in the Best Animated category. And a Frenchman has now won an Academy Award for acting.
As a follower of current events, though, a special note must be made for Asghar Farhadi's acceptance speech. It was much needed.

You know, I know I liked "Dragon" more than the average filmgoer, but I still have no damn clue how anyone in the audience saw the clips being shown and saw Streep's Thatcher and then Mara's Salander and thought - Yep Streep should get this thing.

generally

I'm pretty content with the awards this time, much more than last year, when the main prize should have went to either Toy Story 3 (yeah, like that was ever going to happen) or Social Network. This year The Artist deserved it the most and I'm really glad they won. I'm not that cool with Hugo getting so much love, first of all they overdid it with trying to compensate Marty the main awards (cinematography and Effects? Really?

As for the show, Crystal did a better job than Hathaway and Franco but that's not saying much and it shouldn't. It was still boring and ass-kissy. Plus having Bieber in there just felt so wrong on so many levels. Frank Sinatra is rolling over his grave

This is such bullshit, HUGO was the best film of the year, the artist was so simplistic...

And how could they not have given an Academy Award to Scorcese??? That boggles the mind....I mean, truly HUGO is one of his masterpieces...way superior in my book to The Artist, which was good, but not better than HUGO.

Completely or almost completely ignored films like Warrior (I don't agree with you philalva77 but to everyone his opinion), Shame, Drive, Anonymous (I KNOW, some of you don't agree with me with this one), Take Shelter, Tintin (for animation, because if performance capture is NOT animation, so the rotoscoped animation for movies like SNOW WHITE make it NOT animation either)... is the proof the Oscar are mostly out of credibility!

I'm glad Meryll Streep won. She's truly one of the best actresses of our time, and she deserved another recognition. She won her last Oscar 30 years ago and no one can say she has been relaxing ever since.
Also, Christopher Plummer - at the age of 82, after dozens and dozens of great films, he finally won! Thank god for him!

I usually don't care much for the Cinematography award, but this year I shocked. Out of all nominees "Hugo" was the weakest. And "The Tree of Life" had the best cinematography of the decade.

I disagree on all counts. I think Hugo deserved all the visual awards it won, altough Rise of the Planet of the Apes had a case for effects. Still, they can't just give the Oscar to motion capture every year.

People really need to get over the fact Warrior did not get a Best Picture nod, I mean REALLY from the Academy? What a joke that would have been? Granted I hate these award shows as much as the majority here do, but to suggest a overrated & cliched movie like Warrior would get such high marks is ludicrous. Get over it people & move on.

I don't have any strong feelings about the awards themselves, that except for a certain snub(No one will ever convince me Warrior shouldn't have been nominated for Best Picture). That being said, the JoBlo Sunday Night Movie Chat was a blast to sit through and watch the awards with. For every joke that Crystal made that fell flat, our fellow schmoes landed ten that were out of the park!

I was glad there was at least one upset, I was upset that Nick Nolte didn't get Best Supporting for Warrior and I was actually thrilled that The Artist won the top awards. It's not that it's an absolutely amazing film, but compared to the other nominees it was my unequivocal favorite, including Dujardin's performance.
