In Oscar news, “Argo” won best picture and Daniel Day-Lewis won his third Oscar for best-actor for his performance as Abraham Lincoln in “Lincoln.” The award for best actress went to Jennifer Lawrence for her performance as a young widower in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Anne Hathaway won the supporting-actress Oscar win as a doomed mother-turned-prostitute in the musical “Les Miserables.”
Christoph Waltz won his second supporting-actor Oscar a genteel bounty hunter in “Django Unchained.” Tarantino also won his second Oscar, for original screenplay for “Django.”
In a big surprise Taiwanese director Ang Lee won the best-director trophy, when many people expected it to go to Steven Spielberg for “Lincoln.” Another neat surprise was when Michelle Obama appeared to be one of the presenters for the best-picture award.
Normally I try to see most of the films nominated for awards, but this year I was not able to. Looking forward to seeing them on DVD in the future. What about you? Did you see them? Agree with the awards?
