We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
When I wrote about my favorite Oscar-winning performances of the past decade, I said it’s best not to get too worked up about the Academy Awards. I did add that it is more fun when I agree with them. Of course I didn’t agree with every decision last night. For example, the very good Argo is far from my favorite film of the year, and I felt Tony Kushner’s screenplay for Lincoln deserved it over Chris Terrio. Sure, I wish Skyfall had brought Roger Deakins his long-awaited first Oscar, I’d have loved to see ParaNorman beat Brave, and I don’t think Silver Linings Playbook is the one Jennifer Lawrence will be remembered for. Even so, accepting that no one will ever be happy with all the winners, this newest slate is alright by me.
