A sang and dance musical, anyway Jack's back and Ben proves if you get knocked down get back up!
6 March 2013 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"The 85th Academy Awards" wasn't maybe the best one in recent memory, still the list of films up for awards made it one of the best years for movies. And host Seth MacFarlane gave his best try though many found him sexist with his boob joke still he was funny enough with his wit and humor to make the show a joy to watch. Seth even cracked fun at himself. Plus it was nice to see an appearance from his little friend Ted! The show though did have a little to much music in it for my taste anyway most awards went as expected. In a surprise the best supporting actor award going to Christoph Waltz proves that the academy must respect him a lot especially when he beats out legendary giants like Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. And when the best director nod went to Ang Lee over the better known Steven it proves the academy likes visual work and graphics over historical storytelling. In no surprise Daniel Day Lewis's transformation of Abe brought him his third best actor win. The best actress field proved that the direct and sassy Jennifer Lawrence can win and still trip and recover she was just such a delight in "Silver Linings Playbook", Jen has a bright future. Rightfully so Ben Affleck's "Argo" won best picture a film that made Hollywood look good plus it was based on an actual revealed mission. And Ben said it right you get knocked down, but you get back up! Academy voters take that for the best director nomination snub! And so pleasing to see was my man the greatest actor of all time Jack Nicholson return to the Oscars to present the best picture(that was Jack's first Oscar appearance in four years!)Only sadly his thunder of words was stolen by Michelle Obama! Overall an okay Oscars with awards rightfully going to deserving people.
