This past Sunday was the most anticipated awards show of the year. The night people all over the world watched as the Oscar winners from previous years presented awards for the years top movies. The nominated movies were "The Artist," "The Descendants," "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close," "Hugo," "Midnight in Paris," "The Help”, "Moneyball," "War Horse," and "The Tree of Life.” Although “The Artist” won as best picture, “Hugo” took home many of the awards. Octavia Spencer of “The Help” won for best supporting actress, while Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin took the award for Best Actress and Actor. “Rango” won as the best animated film of the year. A film from Iran won for Best Foreign Language Film. Many Harry Potter fans were upset because it wasn’t even nominated for best film. Lots of TV hosts said it was because “people actually watched it.”
A few of the best dressed on the red carpet were Jennifer Lopez, Gweneth Paltrow, Sandra Bullock, Cameron DIaz and Kate Mara. Kristen Wiig, Berenice Bejo, Rose Bryne, Viola Davis, Emma Stone and Melissa McCarthy were on the worst dressed list. I thought everyone looked absolutly stunning.
The host of the event, Billy Crystal, pleased everyone with his humorous songs and funny jokes. Many people watched in awe as Cirque-de-Soliel did a performance to take you back to the era of good old-fashion movies. The theme of this years awards show was to take people back to the movies that are now considered classics. 1930’s style dancers walked around with containers of popcorn to go along with the theme, while also satisfying the cravings of the hungry crowd.
Overall, besides those Potterheads, everyone was very happy with the outcome of the 84th annual Academy Awards.
