|He even looks like a prick.|
Other honorable mentions include:
Woody Allen's win for Best Original Screenplay for Midnight in Paris - A relieving win, after Sorkin won yet another award for his quasi-brilliance, as well as a sheer delight
George Clooney wins Best Actor for The Descendants - Not necessarily a positive occurrence, as I was rooting for Jean Dujardin for his extraordinary performance in complete silence. Giving such a marvelous performance without saying anything, now that's worth an Oscar. Still, I don't mind Clooney's win one bit.
Viola Davis wins Best Actress for The Help - Again, not much of a cheer. I was rooting for Meryl Streep for her convincing, amazing portrayal of Margaret Thatcher. I'm happy for Davis, regardless, as I'm sure her performance was great, too. Better her than Michelle Williams. She does not look like Marilyn Monroe. At all.
Another tribute for Martin Scorsese - This is greatly appreciated, and in no way tiring (he was honored at the Golden Globes a few years back, as well), since Mr. Scorsese is undeniably a cinematic genius. Plus, montages of the legendary director are always a joy to watch. And Leonardo DiCaprio's introduction for the master of film was truly heart-warming, considering their close friendship.
Short and sweet, right?
