Oscar Winners for the 85th Annual Academy Awards

Again, I couldn’t stay up to see the entire thing, mostly because the thought of staying up past midnight and having to get up at 5:00 the next morning didn’t make a lot of sense to me.

I enjoyed Seth MacFarlane hosting the Oscars last night. I liked the song and dance numbers, the Bond tribute and the singing tribute to musicals past. If you would like to read a pretty good run-down of MacFarlane’s hosting, check out The Hollywood Reporter’s critique. It was spot on.

Many of us tune in to see the fashions and the fabulous jewels on display. You can see those here.

Early on I heard whispers that Jennifer Lawrence would win because she’s a favorite of Harvey Weinstein. She did give off a bit of Goopy Gwyneth Paltrow in her dress last night. I can’t complain, because I like Jennifer Lawrence.

And frankly, her Oscar campaigning was not nearly as overt and annoying as AnnE (not a typo) Hathaway’s tiresome “I cut my hair, check out my beav and nip” show. The real question of the night, “Will Nipplegate overshadow Anne’s Oscar win?”

I don’t think anyone was surprised by Daniel Day Lewis’ win for Best Actor in “Lincoln.”

I cannot fathom how “Brave” won best animated film over “Wreck It Ralph.” I loved “Paperman,” so I was happy to see that win best short animated film.

I loved “Life of Pi” and was happy to see it win several awards, including Best Director Ang Lee.
