Last night’s Academy Awards was a good show. Ellen Degeneres was a great host and there were plenty of surprises in who won awards. I loved the all-star selfie and the pizza order. Both were fun and were well received. She’s one classy lady.
I am happy for Lupita Nyong’o and Matthew McConaughey for their wins. Twelve Years A Slave deserved best picture and of course Frozen was the big time winner in animation. Gravity won a bunch of tech awards and best director. American Hustle was shut out, surprisingly. I was hoping Amy Adams would have on best actress. Jared Leto’s performance in Dallas Buyer’s Club earned him the best supporting actor award.
What was going on with John Travolta during his introduction of Indina Menzel? he said something sort of unintelligible, at any rate it inspired a Twitter user to set up a page under the name he introduced her by.
Overall the show was well done, full of heart. It went long but with Ellen as host we didn’t mind staying up late to see the finish. She can host anytime.
