^ Awesome Simpsons reference . I would have also liked to see Drive win something but it seems like the kind of movie that will only get recognized later on, like Taxi Driver and Fight Club. I really am glad that The Artist won best picture though. I saw it the day before the Oscars and loved it! I'm also glad that DuJardin won best actor, though I find it strange that Bérénice Bejo was nominated for best supporting actress rather that best actress.

And yes, Woody won best screenplay and he totally deserved to win that award. ^_^
I was glad about him winning best actor too, and I was surprised that she was nominated for that category as well. I guess…it might have to do with the definition of a supporting actress…Quote:
If you liked The Artist, I really recommend the others Hazanavicius movies of you find them subtitled, in particular the OSS117. They are James Bond parodies with the same cast than the Artist (at least for lead roles)
He is also very famous for La classe américaine
btw is it true that there was a big polemic about his f-word ?
^ Le Grand Détournement !
Mais j'suis pas super fort, j'suis mieux que ça même, j'suis surpuissant !
Ahahah, high level humour with this La Classe Américaine.
Si ! Ca sert de discuter ! C'est toi, qu'a toujours raison !
Yeah I completely forgot it was him who was responsible for this masterpiece.
I've watched OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies and loved it! There are a lot of hilarious scenes, and I love how Hazanavicius managed to make the movie look so much like an old spy film. Now I have to watch Lost in Rio as soon as I can.Quote:

Predict and discuss your choices for the awards....
The only movie out of the nine best film nominees that I've seen is Life of Pi, which I wouldn't mind seeing it when since it's a pretty beautiful movie. I really need to watch the other nominees though
No nomination for Skyfall for best film? Okay....
This year I've not yet seen any of the films on nominated; I'll possibly watch The Life of Pi this coming week but I think that will be it. Just because of the buzz behind it, I think Les Miserables will scoop a lot of the awards its up for. I've also noticed the lack of nominations for The Hobbit???
On a more positive note, I'm glad to see Silver Lining Playbook getting that number of nominations; it's a really endearing film with strong comedy and a lot of heart. I recommend it if you've not seen it. My predictions will follow.
Les Miserables was nominated for best film? I thought it was total shit (besides Hathaway).
The way this is always set up is that a few films get nominations in a lot of categories, and they all win one of them, for example I expect Tarantino to win screenplay but his film might win one more award, the way it is set up Amour and Life of Pi will also get one award, they are nominated in a few categories as well.
Amour will most likely win best foreign film seeing as it was both nominated for that plus the best film award. And I think Django might win best screenplay.
