So, due to technical computer problems, I couldn’t watch as many of the nominees as I wanted to.
But, I got through all of the best picture nominees! As in I finished Zero Dark Thirty literally 10 minutes before the Oscars started. Well, here is my version of liveblogging them. Enjoy!
Opening monologue was pretty funny. Pretty sure Will Shatner was drunk haha
Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz
called it. He was brilliant, and such an impressive field of actors to be nominated in!
Animated Short: Paperman
That’s the one I wanted to win! It was beautiful.
Animated Feature Film: Brave
I’m surprised, I thought Wreck it Ralph was going to take it. However, Brave was visually beautiful, and made me cry. Congrats!
Cinematography:Life of Pi
Totally. That was the most visually beautiful movie I have seen in quite some time.
Visual Effects: Life of Pi
Another no-brainer. Although seeing Avengers win would have been pretty cool.
Costume Design: Anna Karenina
I haven’t seen this one yet, but from everything I’ve seen so far, it looks beautiful.
Hair and Makeup: Les Miserables
I was going to say either them or The Hobbit. I loved what they did with Les Mis, so totally deserved.
Foreign Language Film: Amour
I had a feeling this one would win, mostly because it’s nominated for Best Picture, so got that one right.
Sound Mixing: Les Miserables
Well considering they had to mix in live singing with an orchestra, that’s pretty damn impressive.
Sound Editing: a tie between Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall
I mean, that’s cool. Didn’t see Skyfall, but Zero Dark Thirty was fantastic!
Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway
Duh. She’s flawless.
Film Editing: Argo
I was expecting Life of Pi or Zero Dark Thirty, but cool.
Production Design: Lincoln
While it wasn’t my favorite movie, the overall design of this movie is really seamless, and enjoyable to view.
Original Score:Life of Pi
Yes. The music was gorgeous.
Original Song: Skyfall from Skyfall by Adele
Another obvious one. Although I would have laughed so hard if the Ted song won.
Adapted Screenplay: Argo
Hm. I thought Silver Linings were going to win this one, but good for Argo, it is still a really interesting story.
Original Screenplay: Django Unchained
Yes. Called it.
Director: Ang Lee-Life of Pi
Called it. He totally deserves it!
Best Actress:Jennifer Lawrence-Silver Linings Playbook
My bets were that it was between Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence-so I was right in that regard, so yay guessing haha She was fantastic in this role and completely deserves. Plus it was nice to see someone win for something other than a straight drama.
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis-Lincoln
I didn’t quite know about this one. But it was a decent historical drama, so of course he won. He was pretty good though. So good for him.
Best Picture: Argo
Personally, my favorites were Django Unchained and Silver Linings Playbook, with Zero Dark Thirty coming close behind. So, I was rooting for those. However, Argo was a decent historical thriller, so good for the team, but I wish it would have gone to something a little more original.
So that’s it! What did you all think of the Oscars tonight? Any surprises, things you guessed, or disappointments?
Until the next movie I watch!…Which would probably be tomorrow!
