85th Academy Award winners – “Argofuckyourself!”

Posted: February 25, 2013 in Movies

Another year of film officially came to an end last night and even though it was a weak(er) year for the cinema, there was enough intrigue in the nominees to keep everyone glued to their television sets (or Twitter).

At the end of the day, Ben Affleck got his revenge on the Academy winning Best Picture for his film Argo and Ang Lee beat our\t Steven Spielberg for Best Director for his film adaptation of Life of Pi.

The big winners last night were Life of Pi who cleaned up with four (4) Oscar trophies, followed by Argo (3) and Les Misérables (3).

It was a well rounded night for sure, but the jury is still out on Seth McFarlane as Oscar host.  What did you think?

Oh yea, I’ll leave my predictions link right here for you to look back on.  I went 18 for 24 last night in awards – that Ang Lee win really knocked me down a peg.  I also stumbled through the set achievement awards.  Oh well.
