Well, there you have it. I predicted The Artist would win big and it did. However, I did not anticipate Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin winning so that genuinely surprised me. I was positive it would be Viola Davis and George Clooney.
I am, however, very disappointed that Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo lost out on Best Original Screenplay for Bridesmaids. The members of the Academy officially have no sense of humor. And what the fuck at Rise of the Planet of the Apes not winning Best Visual Effects? I loved Hugo but put credit where credit is due, people.
Billy Crystal should host every Oscar telecast until he retires. He's the only one who can do it right.
And honestly... Twilight in the beginning film montage? Really? How about we stick to films that actually mean something and/or were nominated for Oscars. Fucking hell. I screamed the moment I saw Kristen Stewart's face on my TV.
