Watch Leonardo DiCaprio as he is waiting his Oscar to be engraved!

At the Governors Ball, Leonardo DiCaprio and his fellows Oscar winners are getting their blank Oscars engraved with their names and category won.

Watch as Leonardo DiCaprio impatiently waits for his to be finished and chats with the lady who is engraving the Oscar :).

You do this every year?…Cause I wouldn’t know…

The Complete list of winners at the 88th Academy Awards.

Complete list of winners of the 88th Oscars!

Leonardo DiCaprio wins the Oscar! He can start doing mediocre movies now and the internet needs to find something else to nag about.

Chris Rock hosting the 88th Academy AwardsSo, Alejandro G. Inaritu is the third director in history to won the Oscar for directing in two consecutive years. Brie Larson as expected won the Oscar for actress in a leading role and Leonardo DiCaprio for best actor for his monumental role in The Revenant.

Spotlight was acknowledged as the best picture of the year. It comes of a little weird that the best picture won only one more Oscar, for best original screenplay.

You could say that this year the Oscars had no obvious and strong dominant winners, apart from Mad Max: Fury Road which won all technical awards. The Revenant and Spotlight were the other two movies to win multiple Oscars.

The final score in numbers:
Mad Max: Fury Road: 6 Oscars.
The Revenant: 3 Oscars.
Spotlight: 2 Oscars.

The 86th Oscars – winners list!

Who won and who lost at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Did 12 Years A Slave deserve to get the Oscar for Best Film with just two other Oscars won opposite of Gravity with a total of 7 won Oscars?

The ceremony went rather predictable, few jokes and laughs a singing thank you here and there, few selfies and pizzas :). The host of the 86th Oscar ceremony was Ellen DeGeneres that most would agree did much better job than MacFarlane last year.

At the end of it this is the final score:

12 Years A Slave won 3 Oscars including the one for Best Film and Best Actress in Supporting Role.

Gravity won 7 Oscars out of 10 nominations, most of them for technical achievements and the one for Best Director, Alfonso Cuaron.

Dallas Buyers Club won 3 Oscars including Best Actor in leading Role, Best Actor in Supporting Role and for Makeup and Hairstyling.

Frozen won 2 Oscars, one for Best Animated Feature Film and one for Best Original Song. The Great Gatsby also won 2 Oscars for Best Production and Costume Design.

I am not sure if a movie with just two Oscars deserves to get the third one for Best Movie of the year, but there you go. To me it looks like either Gravity or Dallas Buyers Club deserve that one far better than 12 Years A Slave.

American Hustle (with 10 nominations) and The Wolf Of Wall Street (with 5 nominations) got nothing.

Best Motion Picture: 12 Years A Slave12 years a slave oscar for best motion picture
Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron for Gravityaflonso cuaron best director oscar

It was logical that the Academy would try to please the crowds so they split the two most important awards at the Oscars. Best direction for Gravity and Best Film for 12 Years a Slave.

Best Performance by an Actor in  a Leading Role: Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Clubmatthew mcconaughey receiving the oscar for best actor

The competition here was mostly imagined by mass media and internet hype. Dicaprio didn’t stand a chance in this.

Best Performance by an Actress in leading Role: Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine cate blanchett receiving the oscar for best actress

In a really tough competition including an incredible Meryl Streep (Ossage County) Cate Blanchett wins the Oscar for Best Actress.

Best Performance by an Actor in Supporting Role: Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Clubjared leto receving the oscar for best actor in supporting role

This was a no-brainer, Leto totally deserved it.

…just saw the Oscars…

…and it was weird!?

Captain Kirk fro the future to help Seth MacFarlane host

Firstly, Seth MacFarlane was the host and he wasn’t really all that funny, let’s say it was OK, but someone should have told him he isn’t hosting someones Roast. There were plenty of times were the audience didn’t know how to react, and walking of after “the next presenter doesn’t need an introduction” was so “decade ago” joke. He spent the entire ceremony clearly wondering if people thought that he and his jokes were funny. Well they weren’t. But his singing was good, the “Loser Song” at the end almost fixed everything else before….. well not really.

Final word on is hosting, it was predictable up to the point where gay jokes, jew jokes and “so old” jokes were part of the humor.

Ang Lee got an Ocar for Best Director

The entire show was also weirdly paced, the award for Best Director was too early (didn’t get the deserved attention if you ask me), different award winners got different time to speak (otherwise a shark would eat them), too many presenters for one award and just generally “all too many” things happening or not happening. The theme of the 85th Oscars was music and yet not all songs for Best Original Song гот the proper treatment. What’s up with that? Seriously? (BTW Scarlett Johansson singing a song for Chasing Ice, I didn’t know that, it was pretty good too bad it wasn’t a live performance and too short).

For some unknown mystical reason the musical Chicago kept turning up during the Oscars. I mean…WHY?

BUT THE WEIRDEST PART that happened at the end while presenting for Best Motion Picture of the year was the appearance of Michele Obama live from the White House. She even announced the winner. So long was the show I was expecting for someone to wake me up and tell me it’s just a dream. I am still kind of wondering if it really did happen. (Talk about Oscars politics)

Other appearances worth mentioning were those of William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum dancing later approved by Dustin Hoffman, Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy presenting, than the tribute to 50 Years of Bond movies.

Of course Adele’s performance must be mentioned.  Jennifer Lawrence tripped when going up the stairs to accept her Oscar for best actress in lead role and made a joke about it before thanking everybody. it was probably the highlight of this year’s Oscars. Daniele Radcliffe and Kristen Stewart were presenting together and K. Stewart was limping, just thought I bring that up.daniel radcliffe and kristen stewart

When it comes to the winners I got to say the academy chose good this year. There were no surprises  but no obvious winners also (except for Daniel Day-Lewis for best actor in lead role), it was really a choice among equals at least for the major Oscars awards like best director (Ang Lee) best actress or best film even which was Argo.
