I have made it no secret – in recent years, I have developed an ambivalence towards awards shows of all kind (not just the film and TV ones). That said, I still do have a level of curiosity of who the winners are.
In TV Land, I would like to congratulate two of my favorite actors – Idris Elba and Kate Winslet for their wins (Castor – do I get HFL points for Elba?).
Here is the list of winners in all the film categories:
|Best Motion Picture – Drama||The Descendants|
|Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy||The Artist|
|Best Director – Motion Picture||Martin Scorcese, Hugo|
|Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama||George Clooney, The Descendants|
|Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama||Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady|
|Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy||Michelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn|
|Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy||Jean Dujardin, The Artist|
|Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture||Octavia Spencer, The Help|
|Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture||Christopher Plummer, Beginners|
|Best Foreign Language Film||A Separation (Iran)|
|Best Screenplay – Motion Picture||Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris|
|Best Animated Film||The Adventures of Tintin|
|Best Original Song – Motion Picture||Madonna, Julie Frost, Jimmy Harry, Masterpiece from the film W.E.|
|Best Original Score||Ludovic Bource, The Artist|
|Cecil B. DeMille Award (Lifetime Achievement)||Morgan Freeman|
I would feel horrible if I gave an analysis on this list of winners for two reasons (1) what is considered ‘the best’ is obviously subjective (but I guess that is why consensus votes are all about) and (2) I have not seen all the films nominated so I clearly cannot give my personal take whether or not someone was “robbed” or not.
You know how this next part goes; tell me:
- Did you watch the ceremony? Even if you didn’t, let me know what you think about the winners.
- Did I miss anything exciting?
- Do you think this a harbinger for the remaining awards ceremonies?
