Some Thoughts on OSCAR™

  • I didn't do an OSCAR™prediction post this year for the following reasons:
                1.  I forgot the show was yesterday.
                2. Traditionally, my predictions suck.
                3. I don't really care.

  • In general, I would say they got it right this year. 12 Years a Slave was a great movie and I'm glad it won. Most importantly, that dreck American Hustle didn't win a thing. Shut out. Goose egg. Squat. Nada. Bupkis. Zilch. The Denver Broncos of OSCAR™nominees. Bwahahahah. See the full list of winners HERE.

  • France's Cesar Awards were given out on Friday. In a big surprise, Blue is the Warmest Color was very nearly shut out. Even the French think it's overrated. See all the winners HERE

  • Here's an OSCAR™fun fact: Luise Ranier is the only woman to win Best Actress two consecutive years (1936-37). She is still alive at 104 years young.

My feelings are much the same, Mr. Anderson. I'm glad you don't provide them with extra hoopla.

Anon: Thanks. One thing the Oscars don't need, it's more breathless hoopla.

Couldn't agree more. As a friend of mine said, "I don't want to live in a world where David O. Russell has an Oscar."
BTW, good to see you are back blogging again.

Sorry to disagree. I enjoyed American Hustle and especially liked Amy Adams and the soundtrack. Am looking forward to see 12 Years a Slave.
