Full Oscar Winners!

Oscars 2013 Winners

Overall, I would say I’m pleased by this year’s winners – except Jennifer Lawrence. Show was horrible. Some pleasant surprises. Life of Pi was a strong movie (until the ending ruins it), so can’t say I’m really upset by Lee winning – just shocked. Liked seeing Django Unchained get some love. I think most of my selections were mostly right. Wish B.P. was a surprise, but two months ago it was clear it was going to be Argo and I’m ok with that. Just surprised at how fast and hard Zero Dark Thirty fell. I would swear I was one of the few critics who didn’t like that movie.

Sheldon’s If I Picked The Oscars® for 2013

Oscars 2013

Tomorrow night, the Academy Awards® will be handed out for the 85th time. Despite doomsayers, 2012 was a very good year for film – from blockbusters to the tiniest indies. I don’t like predicting Oscar® recipients and I’m not that good at figuring out what the Academy will honor (despite being in demographic of the majority of members, I find them far less open-minded).

There are a number of categories where everything is wide open and a few that are down to a couple of major contenders. There are also a couple of categories where it would seem that one entry has a lock. But this is the Oscars®. And for every seemingly inevitable winner, there is a dark horse who came out of nowhere to upset a seemingly inevitable winner. So, if I picked the winners, these would be my choices. Beware intermittent commentary.

Michelle’s Oscar Predictions!

Michelle's Oscar Predictions

For some reason I’m just not into this year’s Oscar race. But then I rarely am. Overall I think this year’s choices are miles better than last year, but out of all the really strong films last year the Academy could not have come up with a more predictable, bland selection of films.  Not that any of this year’s choices are “bad,” it is just that they are uninspired.

Zero Dark Thirty – Bland, Emotionally Inert and contains no Viewpoint. Michelle’s Review

Zero Dark Thirty Movie Review

One of the biggest and most controversial movies of the year is Zero Dark Thirty from Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker).  The movie’s production caused quite a stir from the conservative media (What doesn’t get their panties in a bunch?) when it was revealed that the CIA was providing Bigelow’s team unprecedented access to information regarding the killing of American enemy number one Osama Bin Laden.
