Oscars – No Surprises

You already know the Awards, nothing new today. I just want to say it was not a surprise for Best Directing going to Ang Lee, artistically speaking it was as an arrangement for all that to happen. If Argo or Django Unchained were nominated, one of these two would have received the vote. A nice ceremony was what everybody expected and the live performances were up to our hopes. Considering the numbers and the procedures, the business was good as well, all investors had much more than they spent. If Beasts of the Southern Wild made almost twelve times the pot, it was good for an indie. I’ve heard that the three million gained for Amour were more than all the other Haneke films put together and felt sorry for European cinema. With some brains, they would pull much better by reversing the flow, only they feel sorry for themselves or they’re just not taking this business seriously enough. Just for the sake of it, the Awards are as follow:
