The Oscars took place yesterday and here is the list of winners in some major categories:
Birdman — Alejandro G. Inarritu, John Lesher and James W. Skotchdopole
Eddie Redmayne — The Theory of Everything
Julianne Moore — Still Alice
Alejandro González Iñárritu — Birdman
Best Animated Movie
Big Hero Six — Don Hall, Chris Williams and Roy Conli
Best Original Song
Glory — John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn
Best Original Score
The Grand Budapest Hotel — Alexandre Desplat
Best Adapted Screenplay
The Imitation Game – Graham Moore
I saw many of the winning movies. I have no idea why Birdman is given this much attention. It is a nice movie and Micheal Keaton’s performance is undeniably great but my first reaction after watching it and even now is “What did I just watch!”, it’s good and all but probably the best word to describe is Weird.
I am disappointed that The Imitation Game did not score any big wins. It’s one of my favorite movies along with The Theory of Everything, I think they both deserve more awards!
