It was a long boring show. Seth McFarlane never got the appropriate timing for the joke telling and consequently blew every joke. He should stay behind the animation joke telling.
Congratulations to the makers of Brave and Paperman. Both are distinguished films, and now they’re more distinguished. Both are solid performances.
Congratulations to the EFFX people who did Life of Pi. I’m embarrassed that the Academy treated you so poorly wen giving a not-very-long speech. Especially in the light of the words you were about to say re the labor problems Rhythm & Hues is having. I can’t believe they shut off your mic. Such poor taste makes one wonder about the dignity of the show’s producers. It didn’t come off as very gracious, to say the least.
I won’t say bad about Argo, I’ll only think it. I’m pleased Ang Lee won Best Director and received a well deserved standing ovation.
On to 2013. Hopefully there will be more dignity in the end.
