Quotes

Himself - Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: Thanks. This is my daughter, the producer. I want to thank the Academy; now I don't have to wait for her wedding to tell the world how brilliant she is. Our little film was inspired by the people of Northern Ireland, Protestant and Catholic, who after thirty years of war, sat down, negotiated a peace, and proved to the world that the Irish are great talkers. I want to dedicate this to them. And thank you again. Thank you very much.
Herself - Co-Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: Mum, this is for you!

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.
