Best Actor ~ Daniel Day-Lewis
Best Actress ~ Emmanuelle Riva
Best Supporting Actor ~ Philip Seymour Hoffman
Best Supporting Actress ~ Anne Hathaway
Best Foreign Language Film ~ Amour
Argo wins Best Picture! Yeah! Great film and deserving of the top honors. Too bad Affleck didn't win Best Director. He wasn't even nominated in this category. Idiots!
I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Affleck, mostly behind the camera.
Best Director Oscar goes to Ang Lee for Life of Pi. Arrgh. Don't like his films. The critics panned this film. And its religious themes kept me from even seeing it.
Best Actor goes to Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln, of course. No one expected otherwise.
Best Actress goes to Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook. Great film. Great performance. But I still think Emmanuelle Riva pulled off a more challenging and memorable role in Amour. Ah but it was in French. The Academy voters shy away from films with subtitles--takes too much effort. And they can't be viewed on their iPhones--text is too small to read.
Best Supporting Actor goes to Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained--another film I didn't see. And as you know, there weren't many. Tarantino's films have become boring, redundant, and predictable.
Best Supporting Actress goes to Anne Hathaway for Les Misérables. She's great in everything she does. Deserved an Oscar. If not for this, then for the sum of all her roles. Do they give Oscars out for past accomplishments? I hear they do.
Amour wins Best Foreign Language Film--and rightly so!
And as for the Best Dressed of the evening. All I shall say is that ALL red carpet walkers were dressed better than me.
