The 85th Academy Awards (The Oscars) 2013 Winners.


Well the 85th Academy Awards happened last night and as predicted by pretty much everyone, Argo won Best Picture prize. Hollywood made a big joke out of itself for awarding something that felt were suppose to do because poor Ben Affleck was snubbed. Now i personally wasn't able to catch The Oscars live because of the power outage we experienced throughout the country but I will be watching its repeat telecast and maybe I'll talk length about the ceremony later in details. So Ang Lee won Best Director for his wonderful directorial achievement that is Life of Pi. Jennifer Lawrence at last, i personally was rooting for Jessica Chastain and Emmanuelle Riva. Though i am literally pissed about Christoph Waltz taking supporting actor Oscar for the "same" performance twice, not a Tarantino hater but still this is idiotic. Also Brave? It wasn't the best animated film though i admire it for the astounding visuals and technical accomplishment but it was far from Pixar's better movies. What more can i say, i am overall disappointed at the winners but lets see if i like the actual ceremony.
