Agreed although I wasn’t shocked by Redmayne’s win. He’s been the favourite for a while. I would have preferred Keaton though.

How was the show itself? I had an early start at work and a long day ahead of me so there was no way I was pulling an all nighter to watch it.

Oh and adapted screenplay was a surprise for me. I was convinced Whiplash had that in the bag.

Very boring show with almost no surprises. I am just wondering why BOYHOOD didn’t win more. I totally expected it to win director or at least picture but I am glad it didn’t. I liked it but it isn’t nearly as good as the internet thinks it is. If it weren’t for the “12-years-in-the-making-gimmick” this movie never would have gotten as much attention. For me it’s clearly just a number of short films put together to form a movie which feels very episodic. Couldn’t watch BIRDMAN so I don’t know if it deserved to win but I am still furious about the snub of CALVARY, LOCKE and UNDER THE SKIN. Hell even THE GUEST should have been nominated for SOMETHING!!!

Oh and… to all actors: if you ever wanna win an Academy Award play a retarded real life person. You simply cannot fail.

Mel
Guest

you know that “retarded” is not a cool word to use anymore, extremely politically incorrect and insulting to label a developmentally disabled person in that context.

Rolf
Guest

Tried the Gamble-talk. Failed.

Matt Gamble
Guest

Yeah, but I’ve had years to cultivate this idiotic persona.

Rolf
Guest

So there’s still some hope for me. 🙂

Jonathan
Guest

They already made that joke in Tropic Thunder. Also, Stephen Hawking is not “retarded,” so I’m not sure what you’re referencing.

Rolf
Guest

Have never seen TROPIC THUNDER. Also I don’t consider it a joke but common knowlegde. 🙂
But I will admit: retarded OR mentally/ physically challenged in any way. 😉

The show got off to a good start with the ‘classic style’ musical number (Jack Black was particularly great), but then in terms of pacing and entertainment, it was pretty slow-going.

Liked: JK Simmons “Call Your Mom and Dad” speech. Common’s Selma Bridge speech. Innaritu’s stage presence and confidence. The stage design and In Memorium graphics.

Disliked: Any time NPH was in the crowd. Ever bit failed. The ‘secret ballot’ gag was intolerable, even if it payed off slightly by the end. The ‘fight with the Playout Music several times. Ugh, just let the winners talk. Pretty much every time NPH was on screen after his intro/monologue/song was just lame. The post-In Memorium Song by Jennifer Hudson was excruciating, almost as much as every other musical performance in the show.

Most Memorable (And Creepy Moment): The 90 seconds with Ida Menzel and John Travolta was one for the ages. Nightmare fuel.

The rest, including Arquette, Moore and Redmayne’s speeches, and the rest of the awards, passed the time, but ultimately forgettable. Too much SOUND OF MUSIC, not enough general Montage. More montages.

NPH started off well but he went downhill from there. Not funny. At all. I’d rather have James Franco back.

Had hoped that Birdman/Boyhood would split the top awards but not surprising it didn’t go that way. Really bummed about Keaton. I didn’t care much for Theory fo Everything but Redmayne’s performance is pretty spectacular.

Wish there was some video of Redmayne and Moore catching up. I’m so going to re-watch Savage Grace this week. All I remember about that movie is the creepy incest love scene and Moore chasing her husband (I think) down an airport spitting out “cunt”

I found Savage Grace to be pretty excellent in the ridiculous department, this isn’t even a knock against the film, it’s just so gonzo with out it plays everything out. Love.

Marina
Guest

Yeah, I liked it a lot the first time I saw it. It’s been too long. This is s perfect reason to revisit it.
