I missed most of program, but looked for results online as soon as I could, and then caught the last few awards live.
I was so glad I got to hear Daniel Day Lewis accept his Oscar with such such grace and humor…and especially enjoyed his brief tribute to his wife, who has ended up “living with many strange men” over the years while he has immersed himself in his varied roles.
On the other hand, I thought Hugh Jackman was amazing in Les Miserables, and wish he could have won, too. :) I never could have made a decision between them. Did you agree with the voters on best actor?
What about Best Picture? I figured it would be Lincoln, and liked both Lincoln and Life of Pi better than Argo…but some of the other finalist movies I haven’t seen yet. What was your favorite?
And then for best actress…who was your favorite nominee? I confess that I haven’t seen all of those movies, but I thought both Sally Field and Anne Hathaway were amazing and again, wish both could have won. What are some of your other thoughts on the Oscar winners?
Since I missed the Red Carpet parade, I need to get back online and check out all of the glamorous dresses. It’s hard to imagine a lifestyle that involves designer gowns and Winston jewels, but its sure fun to look!
You know, the writing world has some very prestigious awards too, such as Romance Writers of America’s Rita, and many of the authors here have won a lot of honors! If you’re curious, you can look at the horizontal bar at the top of this blog, click on the author names, and you’ll arrive at their websites.
Best wishes to you all. have a wonderful week!
