I'm SO happy Brett won an academy award!

JL1678d ago

I guess you're referring to Bret McKenzie? Pretty sure that was a foregone conclusion really. That category was a real no-contest.

All in all, no big surprises here. I missed a few with my picks, but none were big surprises.

I guess the most surprising for me was that Hugo got Visual FX. Honestly, it probably did deserve the award, but I really figured Planet of the Apes or Harry Potter would take that as a consolation prize.

I guess I just forgot Brett wrote that song, so i was surprised when they announced his name.

I thought that too...never would have figured Hugo for that either.

JL1678d ago

Looking back, I think Hugo really did deserve the FX award, especially given the masterful use of 3D. However, given the political elements of the awards, I was just convinced that award would be a consolation prize for Serkis due to the fan campaign.

as long as Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't have one these awards mean nothing to me

KingPin1677d ago

these awards means nothing to me at all.

i mean did you see the judging committee. its a bunch of old guys who are stuck in the 1920s.

ofcoz they gonna give a silent, black and white movie best movie award. it reminds them of their childhood.

i have watched the aviator, when it had something like 11 nominations. after 20 mins i walked out of pure boredom. life is too short to waste it on that.

2pacalypsenow1676d ago

i cant believe that a silent black and white movie took almost all the Oscars that proves how useless they are

The_Nameless_One1677d ago

So wait a minute...The Descendants over Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Rango over Chico & Rita?

I can't wait to see how Mark Kermode will respond to that. Plus, Seems like it's nor Clooney's year after all.

The Help was a terrible movie IMO.

rise of the planet of the apes should have won in best visual effects
