Argo was an awesome movie and now the Oscars look like major douches for not nominating Affleck (or Bigelow, for that matter) for director. I’m hoping to see ZD30 later this week and then Lincoln and Les Mis at some point. 

I liked Katharine McPhee’s dress.

@Mrs. Wallaby:  I saw Lincoln this weekend and it was very good.  Daniel Day Lewis did an amazing job.  I would be super surprised if he didnt win the Oscar, but the way the academy is right now Im not too sure.  He’s one of those actors that doesnt make a ton of movies, but when he does its amazing. 

I think the theme this year with dresses was sparkle and sheer

 

ETA: Lincoln was the only nominated film I saw.  I hope to see ZD30 soon.  I wanted to see Argo but DH is not interested

Loved Kate Hudson and Keri Washington. the dress was totallllyyyy different than the others, length wise. Zooey seemed too blah to me. She looks the same every awards show!

I saw a bunch of the movies- Argo was great, Lincoln was great, Daniel Day Lewis was amazing. To be honest I’m kind of getting sick of Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino making the SAME movies over and over again and I used to be fans of theirs! I have Zero Dark Thirty waiting for me at home, so I’m looking forward to that. I like the Hurt Locker, so…   I thought Emily Blunt did look great. I might be in the minority but I LOVED Juliana Margulies- AND I loved Emily Deschanel’s look.

I’m pumped for the Oscars and am so excited that Quvenzhané Wallis was nominated for Beasts of the Southern Wild.  She’s the youngest ever nominated in Oscar history and if she wins, she’ll obviously be the youngest winner as well.

I’m actually kind of pumped to see what she’ll be wearing on the red carpet!

Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell were my favorite part.  You get out of here!

@Mrs. Wallaby:   It really would be!  She was 5 when she auditioned and 6 when they were filming.  She even re-wrote a lot of her dialogue to sound more like her, even though she could hardly read. She is AMAZING.

You must rent it soon!

@Mrs. Wallaby:  I knew how the movie ended (since I had studied the real-llife crisis) and I was so nervous the whole time! I wasn’t even that interested in seeing it at first, so I’m really glad I did.

I only like the Oscars, Golden Globes are not as fun, where is the interpretative dancing?!

My Predictions:

Best Picture – Lincoln (Dark Horse to win – Silver Linings Playbook)

Zero Dark Thirty and Argo are out because there was no Best Director nod.

Best Director- Steven Spielberg

Best Actor- Daniel Day Lewis

Best Actress- Emmanuelle Riva (Dark Horse to win- Jennifer Lawrence)

Best Supporting Actress- Anne Hathaway

Les Mis doesn’t stand a chance for any other big category, industry folks don’t like it and it’s killed by some poor directorial choices.

Best Supporting Actor- Tommy Lee Jones

Best Original Screenplay- Tarantino (Dark Horse to win- Michael Haneke)

Best Foreign Language Film- Amour
