Last night were held the 82nd Academy Awards, one of the TV events I anticipate the most every year. This year didn’t disappoint once again, especially because of Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin‘s performances as hosts. In my opinion, they were the funniest hosts ever on the Oscars. Prologue also delivered with all the show’s packaging, which was classy and pristine as usual.
No surprise as to who won Best Supporting Actor and Actress. I was surprised that Sandra Bullock won, but at the same time I’m really happy for her. This proves everyone who ever said that she couldn’t do anything else than romantic comedies wrong. I was about sure that Avatar would win Best Picture, even though I was rooting more for Up In The Air and The Hurt Locker, so I was kind of happy when Kathryn Bigelow‘s movie won.
What I still can’t believe though, is that James Cameron didn’t win Best Director. I didn’t like Avatar too much, so as I said, I’m happy that it didn’t win Best Picture, but it is completely absurd that the Academy doesn’t recognize the directing work behind this picture. It is the biggest production ever, and it was all orchestrated by Cameron himself, and it shows a far superior logistical and creative direction than any other movie produced this year. I hated the script, I thought the story was cheesy, but the movie itself is still a visual masterpiece and Cameron deserved the title. Shame on the Academy !
