A pizza and hero themed Oscars? An Oz tribute still the rightful winners won!
Ellen was back once again as host of the Oscars and she was pretty funny for the 86th edition of the annual academy awards. The show was all right with it's music and the theme of hero at the movies was just fine with a "Wizard of Oz" tribute clip as "Over the Rainbow" was sung. Of course the show was once again to long with many awards being handed out still most of the top prizes went as expected and they were well deserved. As Cate Blanchett winning best actress as a tormented female soul in Woody Allen's drama "Blue Jasmine" was rightfully deserved. And in my opinion the strongest tag team performance of the year occurred in "Dallas Buyers Club" as the raw and tough emotional gritty performance from two rebels rightfully won Jared Leto a best supporting actor Oscar and Matthew McConaughey the best actor award and the speeches both gave were powerful and emotional a real stand speech effort. And the pizza pass out and cell star snap picture was okay for the show still probably the best movie of the year "12 Years a Slave" rightfully won best picture. Not the best Oscar awards show of recent years still a pretty good one.
