And the Winners of the 85th Annual Academy Awards are

oscar-winners
What did you think of the Oscars last night? I liked them – first of all, they were a trillion times better than last years show. I don’t remember laughing as much as I did this year. I thought Seth MacFarlane was a fine host. Was he great? No. But I didn’t expect him to be. I went in with low expectations and he definitely exceeded them.

Overall, I thought it was a fun night. Totally didn’t expect Ang Lee to win Best Director for Life of Pi or Argo for Best Film but that’s why we watch, isn’t it? And Ben Affleck‘s speech for Argo was the best of the night. Daniel Day-Lewis‘ speech for Best Actor was right behind him though.
