Ever since AMPAS increased the number of eligible films for Best Picture nominations in 2008, this ceremony resulted in the highest number of "shut-outs" for the Best Picture nominees as of 2014. The five out the nine nominated films that didn't receive a single Oscar were: American Hustle (2013), Captain Phillips (2013), Philomena (2013), Nebraska (2013), and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).

Lupita Nyong'o - Winner: Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Yes! Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn't escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's. And so I want to salute the spirit of "Patsey" for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit.

The Oscars Has Lost Its Charm.
4 March 2014 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Ellen DeGeneres is a wonderful host & I appreciate her wit. But this time around, she goes haywire with poor anchoring and she often stammered on stage and not only during calling the presenters (which was supposed to be funny) but also while cracking jokes.

Then comes the bad direction. The camera men really messed things up when it came to on-stage shooting. The speeches were emotional as they are always but I loved the speech of the winner of best supporting actress. It was sweet & true. Towards the end, the awards function was like a parade of giveaways. Williams's Happy performance was pumping while U2's was a soothing gig. The selfie was the highlight of the show and I was fairly entertained.

But I must say, while the glamour stays fine in the Oscars show, the sophistication has dwindled due to many reasons, hosting, presentation etiquette & direction being some of them. An average show, but I am happy for the deserving winners.
