Why has it gotten to the point where I rarely see any nominees?
25 February 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, of all nominees, I had only seen "The Master", "Frankenweenie", "Lincoln" and "Django Unchained". I'm glad that the latter two won what they did, while I thought that the former two got robbed.

That said, I liked Seth MacFarlane's performance. Yes, his song about actresses' boobs was strange, but it was still kinda funny (although he forgot to mention Michelle Williams in "Blue Valentine" and Susan Sarandon in "Joe"). As for his comment that Daniel Radcliffe and Kristen Stewart collectively play everything that the Christian right says is wrong with Hollywood, I think that it would have been more accurate if one of them had played a LGBT character (and does anyone know why Kristen Stewart was limping?). Probably the highlight of the ceremony was Shirley Bassey singing "Goldfinger" (although I think that Ursula Andress should have introduced her).

Last year, the wins by the French-made "Artist" and the France-themed "Hugo" must have really angered the right wing; this year, the cast of "Les Miserables" (which seems to represent all of France) singing one of the songs must have done so equally.

As for the In Memoriam sequence, I guess that Andy Griffith and Larry Hagman didn't appear since they're more known for their TV work.

Anyway, good show.
