And The Academy Award Goes To…

It was a great night for movies about ‘The Movies’! Both of the big winners last night – taking 5 awards each – were love letters to the history of film. While ‘The Artist’ cleaned up in almost all of the major awards (sorry Bernice Bejo), ‘Hugo’ won almost all of the technical awards.

Well, we don’t like to brag…wait, yes we do…but we definitely kicked some ass this time around on our picks! Together we got an amazing 20 out of 24 right this year! That is an amazing 83% accuracy. (For those of your keeping track, Andrea won the pool this year with 18 right. Whitney was the weak link this time, with 14)

How great was Billy Crystal?! His musical number was hilarious and his comic timing was perfect. It was such a nice change to watch someone who seemed at home and natural hosting. We’re really hoping that the Academy are already wooing him for next year. And, if at all possible, ‘Cirque Du Soleil’ should be incorporated every year as well.

The whole show seemed to a be a little more laid back this year with the ladies from ‘Bridesmaids’ making “size doesn’t matter” jokes and creating what is probably going to be the most popular drinking game associated with an awards show ever. Our favourite part however, was that absolutely brilliant ‘Wizard of Oz’ bit with Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, Christopher Guest and Katherine O’Hara.

For those of you out there who didn’t see the show, here is the full list of all the winners from last night.

  1. I agree – what a nice change from the last two years. This year’s show was very well done. I also liked the fact that they seem to be cutting off less speeches (only one was actually cut off, I think!) . And…I got 17 right out of my pics!! I think that’s pretty damn good!!! I’ll get you next time, Andrea….next time…..
