An Event To Remember!
27 February 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I've been a Film-Buff since in-time memorial, like literally! Watching the GREATEST Movie Event, 'The Academy Awards' has become a habit, missing it is impossible. LIVE & EXCLUSIVE, 'The 84th Annual Academy Awards', turned out to be An Event To Remember!

Firstly, Billy Crystal was a really charming host. He got his medley spot-on & his jokes, throughout this Spectacular Event, were applaud-worthy. He didn't disappoint a bit.

Now coming to the Winners: The Artist and Hugo each won five awards to their kitty. However, I truly felt that, The Descendants, was the strongest among all the films nominated beside. The Artist took home Best Picture, Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius & Best Actor Jean Dujardin, along-with 2 other wins including Best Original Score for Ludovic Bource & Best Costume Design for Mark Bridges.

Hugo had its glory with 5 wins as well, including Best Cinematography for Robert Richardson. The Descendants did take home 1 Oscar, that being Best Adapted Screenplay for Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash. Best Foreign Language Film went to the critical smash A Separation by Asghar Farhadi.

Mr.Cinema aka Woody Allen won Best Original Screenplay for his master-stoke Midnight In Paris.

Among Acting Winners: Meryl Streep won her long-due 3rd Oscar for her mesmerizing turn in The Iron Lady. This was THE Moment of the event! Watching THE Most Influential & Talented Actress of all-time taking home another Honor in her credit, truly was the high-light.

Amongst Supporting Wins: Christopher Plummer Finally won an Oscar for his subdued & believable performance in Beginners. Octavia Spencer proved her mettle by taking away the trophy for her rather convincing performance in The Help.

Any Upsets? I'm a Nick Nolte & George Clooney Fan. Of course, I would've loved it if they won, especially Nolte who's yet to win this magnificent honor. Gary Oldman, Demián Bichir & Brad Pitt also delivered splendid performances, but this just wasn't their year.

A Special Mention to Cirque du Soleil. Their performance was brilliant. 'The 84th Academy Awards' truly rocked! Great Overall Presentation, Great List of Winners & Nominees, Great Presenters, and of course, A Charming Host.
