Oscar Minutes...

...are here. The show was good tonight! It was pretty much what we expected in terms of winners. Sandra Bullock undeservedly won over Carey Mulligan, and Kathryn Bigelow righteously owned her ex. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were fantastic as the hosts, and I'm interested to see how they will top these two next year. The changes this year were actually well implemented. I'm still furious that they got rid of the performances of Best Original Song, but the 45 second wasn't as bad as I thought, seeing as they didn't cut off the people everyone cares about. And Taylor Lautner and Kristin Stewart didn't really present an award, so, everything's fine. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't surprised Avatar didn't win Best Picture. It was never going to win Best Director, and wasn't nominated for any other major awards. I thought for sure that the Academy would honor the highest grossing, best looking film of all time by giving it the top award. But, I'm not complaining. The Hurt Locker deserved all of it. How Inglourious Basterds or Up in the Air didn't win for their respective writing awards baffles me. I mean, Hurt Locker and Precious certainly deserved it, but they were already locked into other major awards. I thought for sure that the Academy would recognize Tarantino and Reitman in some way. Oh well! Also, Sandy Powell deserves to be slapped for her ungracious speech after winning Best Costume Design! Regardless, it was a good show. Some minor gripes with who the Academy chose, but, all in all, there's really nothing to complain about. See you next time.
