I manage to predict(here) 14/20 or 70% (excluding Documentary and Short Films as I don't watch it)of the categories right especially in the main acting categories.Although I'm quite sad that Harry Potter didn't win any,I was glad with winning of Jean Dujardin and Meryl Streep in their respective categories.Check out the complete list of winners.
Best Picture:The Artist
-A black and white silent film with unknown cast.A one of kind film released last year,The Artist has all the qualities of being a classic film when look back many years later.
Best Director:Michel Hazanavicius
-his speech was funny but the Oscar went to the right person.He took a huge risk and it worked.
Best Actor: Jean Dujardin.The Artist
-WOW!!!!YES!!Well Deserved.Jean gave his best performance and won for it.Thankfully George 's charming personality didn't stop Jean from getting his deserved recognition.
Best Actress: Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
-The difference in voice modulation and tone in her short clip of the The Iron Lady and her speech shows how great she is.One of the greatest actress in our time and a well deserve win.Viola Davis and Michelle Williams both gave great performance in their respective films and I'm 100% they will win someday in the future.
Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer,Beginners
-I couldn't help whining that it should have been Albert Brooks when Jonah Hill's name is announced.Christopher Plummer's performance in the Beginners was heart warming and he this is like a lifetime achievement award for him for appearing in many memorable movies.
Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer,The Help
- Well deserved.Genuine emotions during her speech.Minny's chocolate pie for the Oscars!
