One Response to The 2012 Academy Awards: Will, Should, and Did

    A few thoughts: The saddest part of the evening was two nominations for original score. Two? That’s it? Why was Tintin not up for animation? Hugo was a lovely movie, but a much better book. Cirque de Soleil was a surprisingly fun addition to the festivities – a nice balance to the 30 minutes of “Who are you wearing?” nonsense at the beginning. Speaking of which, if these extremely wealthy people “borrow” the dresses and jewels, who actually buys them? Is it merely prestige to devote that much time for a freebie? And what’s with making Margaret out of Meryl more deserving than the creation of a gazillion characters in Harry Potter? Even Hobbs was more of a transformation.
