The Oscars was distributed and not Won!

I woke up at 5:30 in the morning to watch  85th Academy Awards aka The Oscars, this was the first time I watched this award ceremony Live, and it was because of three films who were my favorites of  2012, first Life of Pi, followed by Argo, Amour.

The Oscar Trophy

The Oscar ceremony was pathetically presented by Seth MacFarlane, the jokes were received with mixed reactions, it was totally insensitive to include boobs song and some jokes on celebrities were lame. Only best thing that happened was Adele’s performance and also Jennifer Hudson and Barbra Streisand were good and others were average.

The Oscar 2013 Winner & Nominations List

Every top movie won awards in one or the other category and looked like awards were distributed and not won based on performance.

The winners in the top category came from 7 different movies:

Best Film – Argo; Ben Affleck & others

Best Director – Life of Pi; Ang Lee

Best Actor – Lincoln; Daniel Day-Lewis

Best Actress – Silver Linings Playbook; Jennifer Lawrence

Best Supporting Actress – Les Miserables; Anna Hathway

Best Supporting Actor – Django Unchained; Christopher Waltz

Best Foreign Film – Amour, Austria (Emmanuelle Riva was in running for Best Actress)

How could one explain, “Argo” won Best Picture Award, but Best Director was won by “Ang Lee”. And I was most disappointed with the Best Actress Award, Jennifer Lawrence won The Oscars but she didn’t deserve to win it when compared with performance of Emmanuelle Riva of “Amour” and Quvenzhane Wallis of “Beast of the Southern Wild.” Were these two deserving actress were denied the chance because their movies had won one among the top honors of the day.Why wasn’t Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi” wasn’t nominated and Joaquin Phoenix from “The Master” was a total surprise and “Zero Dark Thirty’s” Kathryn Bigelow wasn’t nominated for Best Director.

Lobbying by the production houses to promote their movies was intense and looks like it has paid off, but the question would linger were The Oscars distributed rather being Won.
