A pretty good show, I thought. Christopher Plummer was all suave charm. I really need to see Beginners.
Hugo is another highly honored one that looks right up my alley. Can’t believe I missed it, given all the steampunk imagery.
I enjoyed the short piece from Christopher Guest, et al., re: focus groups and The Wizard of Oz. That is exactly like soliciting random comments on an unpublished novel.
I couldn’t believe it when Brad Pitt’s movie memory was about War of the Gargantuas! As a kid I was obsessed with that movie!
Wish Gary Oldman had won Best Actor. He’s been overlooked too many times.
For Best Actress, there was an embarrassment of riches. I don’t begrudge Meryl the Oscar at all, but I thought Glenn Close looked fascinating in Albert Nobbs. Gotta see that one.
And The Artist takes Best Picture. Glad the producers brought Uggie the Dog onstage.
