  1. I’m sure there are many individuals who end up pondering the exact same question after each year’s Oscar telecast, namely, “Why the hell did I stay up so late” ?

  2. I knew it would go to Birdman, but I think Boyhood deserved it. I also loved The Imitation Game. I still have to see The Theory of Everything, Selma, and Whiplash. I thought Foxcatcher was boring and American Sniper was just okay. I’m most happy that Julianne Moore won for Best Actress, because her work in Still Alice was brilliant.

  3. Boyhood was a bore. Sorry. A slog is more like it. A neat trick, but rather than the “gee-whiz” of say, Benjamin Button, it was a “oh, right, they just waiting for a few years.” I’d take the gee-whiz.

    Birman managed to be smart, inventive, about something, and daring. And get this– made by a minority. So much for #sowhite, I guess. Oh, right. Mexican don’t count….

    I didn’t care for Whiplash, JK was good- one-note though. But I cannot get with a movie about a teacher who physically abuses a student. YAY For Abuse!!!! Please.

    The kid who wrote (the great) Imitation Game gave a speech that will stay with me. As did the short doc winner.

    Selma was another bore. The best part was the re-working of MLK’s speeches because they didn’t have the rights. And David O was amazing. MUCH better than Carell. So after seeing both, he was robbed cuz Foxcatcher was a boring bore, and Carell, who was good- only hit ONE note. Whereas, David O had nuance. And that to me, is acting. Look a comedian with a fake nose in a boring movie– give him a nomination. The movie (Selma) was kinda thin and as most have pointed out, seemed to re-write history- for no good reason. The story is powerful, it didn’t need a “re-interpretation.” So if, like me, you listened to the LBJ tapes (long commute at the time), it rang false. (Starting with Oprah as “poor woman from the South” was a bad idea in my opinion.)

    Simply, when compared to the last “Black”film, 12 Years a Slave. Well, there is no comparison. 12 years is a masterpiece! (I’ve seen it about 5 times, won’t see Selma again.)

    Didn’t see Still Alice. Saw the Best Foreign Film, IDA. It was great.
