I know, I know, this post is about two days late. Let's just say that the computer has been in use the last two nights. Forgive and forget, eh? (Or you could be slightly cooler and say, 'I will never forgive, and I will never forget.' I won't hold it against you if you want to be like Thorin or Mordred.)
So, the 85th Academy Awards were on Sunday. Which means, I was sitting in front of the TV from 4:30 till 11. Thankfully I had my knitting with me.
I always look forward to watching the Oscars, or at least, I have for the last three years or so. I love seeing all the pretty (or not so pretty) dresses, harshly judging the host, and groaning as the same commercial is shown over and over again. There are always a few categories that have a movie that I want to win, and often times it does.
This year's Oscars was great. I ate chocolate, was delighted when Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Mis, and wasn't at all surprised that Argo won Best Picture (after all, the newspaper's will win/should win column the morning of is usually correct in their predictions). But what I was surprised -and even angry- about, was that The Hobbit, and Unexpected Journey didn't win Best Hair and Makeup.
Don't think I wanted it to win just because I wanted The Hobbit to win something. I really did want it to win because it seriously deserved Best Hair and Makeup. Look at this thing I found... link. It shows all the characters before and after makeup, and after looking at it, it's impossible not to think they should've won Best Hair and Makeup.
So there you have it. My rant about the Oscars 2013. Apart from the Hobbit's loss, I'm very happy about the whole thing.
But if The Desolation of Smaug doesn't win Best Hair and Makeup....
