My Awards For The 84th Annual Academy Awards !, 28 February 2012

_The Most Truthful : (Chris Rock)'s word. That guy said nothing but the truth; he's silly, and yet he gets millions for just being the silly that he is !

_The Most Hot : (J-lo) is standing, along with (Cameron Diaz), while giving – both – their backsides to the audience in a swift and improvised gleeful moment. Seeing (J-lo)'s assets is always a treat. Sorry (Diaz), you couldn't win that, in the presence of (J-lo) or not !

_The Most Freaky : Naturally (Angelina Jolie)'s knee. And (What a Wonderful World)'s singer's hair (so fit for a Discovery Channel documentary that could be named "Undiscovered yet Jungles !).

_The Most Surprising : The winning of Iran. That director's speech, concerning how some politics' evil could bury a nation's culture, was impeccably brilliant. By the way, speaking about other movies of other nations that were buried by the Oscar's, rather Hollywood's politics; for years and years there was something like thousand movies that should have won, but not even one of them made it to be nominated.

_The Most Funny : One of (The Descendents)'s winner writers goes to imitate the intentionally sexy pose of (Angelina Jolie). Brief note : that pose reminds me powerfully of Shirley MacLaine in one of Irma la Douce (1963)'s posters !

_The Most Hysterical : (Billy Crystal)'s segment of "That's what everybody is thinking.", the parts of (Martin Scorsese) and (Nick Nolte) were beyond fabulous !

_The Most Vengeful : The "focus group" skit. WAW, it bombed the dumb reviewers rightly !

_The Most Smart : The joking speech that the winner of the sound editing award gave "to whoever was born, will be born..", it was a good parody of the Oscar speeches !

_The Most Outrageous : The kiss of (Billy Crystal) and (George Clooney). Absolute gross. It gives the word outrageous a new level of outrageousness !

_The Most Mean : The look upon (Christopher Plummer)'s face while (Billy) was referring to his 82 years, making joke of his aging. He was squeezing his teeth, saying deeply "You son of a bit*h. Ahhh, if you and I were in a boxing match, 60 years ago.."

_The Most Weird : (Nick Nolte)'s way of clapping; as if he's slapping somebody's butt slowly with clear wrath !

_The Best : (Billy Crystal)'s singing. His performance reached the top. It made me sad for all the musicals he didn't make for all of those years !

_The Worst : (Billy Crystal)'s botoxed face, the little hair piece (which I think he puts it), and the way he has to smile after almost every single joke he throws; it assures that he isn't cocky, but nervous. And he didn't use to be nervous.

_The Ugliest : When the music interrupts the speech of poor men like the winners of the best feature documentary. The nasty manner of the Academy that I have complained, complain, and – pessimistically – will be complaining about, seems to be incurable, ESPECIALLY when the academy leaves ***stars*** talk and yak as long as they want, because they're ***stars*** (think of it; Plummer talked for longer time and no music interrupted him !).

_The Most Sensitive : "Accept me, I have so much love to give." said by (Ludovic Bource) the winner of the best original score. And "My wife deserves a Nobel prize for piece for getting to save me everyday of my life." said by (Christopher Plummer) the winner of the best supporting actor.

In general, very good spectacle. Better than the Oscar night of the last year which was itself better than the Oscar night of the year before it !

Finally, to the Academy : While (Billy Crystal) is around, don't you ever think of calling (Chris Rock).. for anything !
