Trivia

Quvenzhané Wallis (at age 9) and Emmanuelle Riva (at age 85) became the youngest and oldest nominees, respectively, for Best Actress. This is also the only time either record-holder has competed against each other for the same award. Both lost to Jennifer Lawrence (age 22), who became the second-youngest winner since Marlee Matlin in 1987. Matlin was 21 years old, at the time. See more »

My Awards For The 85th Annual Academy Awards !
25 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

_The Most Offensive : The song of "We Saw Your Boobs". It crossed the line as shocking, embarrassing and unfunny !

_The Most Silly : Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy. Whatever they were saying, they said it in the most ridiculous way ever !

_The Most Rude : Of course, interrupting the speeches of some "poor" winners, like the winners of the best special effects, with the theme of Jaws, while giving all the time for Anne Hathaway to tell the names of half of the earth's population, and saying the names twice ! Well, it made me imagine a slasher movie where the Academy members are killed one by one with another shark, made – naturally – by the winners who didn't have any time to speak in the Oscars !

_The Most Clever : Charlize Theron's dancing. OH MY GOD, this took my breath away. Dustin Hoffman was totally right.

_The Most Surprising : Shirley Bassey performing "Goldfinger", after nearly 50 years of singing it for the first time. How powerful and glamorous. In the age of 76 she proved that she still HAS IT !

_The Most Expressive : The stage while Barbra Streisand was performing "The Way We Were" in the memory of the late Marvin Hamlisch. Its sight of endless sad candles moved me indeed.

_The Most Exhausted : Renée Zellweger. She looked like 1) having a really ugly flu. Or 2) : a Renée Zellweger look-alike. Or 3) a Renée Zellweger look-alike who has a really ugly flu !

_The Worst Performance : "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" by Norah Jones. I don't know why, but there was something wrong about the music, the sound, Jones's voice, or all of the above !

_The Worst Look : Jack Nicholson's. Sorry, but he seemed like the circus clown !

_The Worst Hairdo : Michelle Obama's, no arguments !

_The Most Dead : Kristen Stewart while presenting one of the awards. Dear, please give a damn. You're not in front of the camera of a movie to look as lifeless as this !

_The Most Smart : Meryl Streep while saying the winner of the Best Actor in a Leading Role right after reading the nominees. She's maybe the best one to know the slowness and the burden of moments like opening the envelope, then reading the name. Heck. She experienced that a lot !

_The Most Truthful Speech : Ben Affleck's. Especially the part of "It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, because that's gonna happen, all what matters is that you're gonna get up."

_The Most Not Bad : Seth MacFarlane as the show's presenter. Between being offensive and mild; he must be only "not bad" !

All in all, with many songs along the way, it seemed like a concert in honor of the Oscars. Well, a nice musical night then.
