We can't afford war with Iran
27 February 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I should start by noting that out of all the movies that were nominated for anything this year, I've only seen "Beginners", "The Muppets", "The Adventures of Tintin" and "Albert Nobbs". I'm glad that Christopher Plummer won Best Supporting Actor, but I was rooting for Glenn Close for Best Actress.

As for the ceremony itself, I liked Billy Crystal's performance, but I especially liked the scene with the cast members from Christopher Guest's movies (and also Sacha Baron Cohen's prank on the Red Carpet). However, probably the most important event of the night was when Asghar Farhadi won an Oscar for directing "A Separation". Not only was it unexpected for an Iranian movie to win an Oscar, but Farhadi used the occasion to remind everyone what a disaster a war between the US and Iran would be, and also that Americans should remember Iran for Persian culture. In the end, it must have irritated the right wing that a movie from a Muslim country won Best Foreign Language Film (not to mention that a number of French people won for "The Artist").

All in all, I really liked the ceremony. This must be the first time that the "In Memoriam" montage has ever shown a computer CEO (by whom I mean Steve Jobs).
