oscars 2013 recap


I was in no condition to write a recap after the 14 hour telecast of the Movie Super Bowl. Then again, I really didn’t intend on writing anything at all. That is, of course, I got curious on how I did last year with my predictions. To my surprise, I did better this year compared to last year!

To make a long and possibly boring story shorter, the 84th Academy Awards I correctly predicted 9 out of the 24 winners. This year: 14 out of 23. Granted, there is a piece of trivia to go along here. First of all, why 23 and not 24? The category of Art Direction is gone. Why? They ran out of the metal Oscar is created from. Second piece of trivia: this is the first time that I’ve ever witness a tie for an Oscar. Sound Editing was split between Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall. I predicted ZDT so I technically won. What made it more unbelievable is that Seth MacFarlane’s Ted was one of the presenters for this award so it was hard to tell if they were actually being serious for a moment.

Anyway, besides that, the show was rather entertaining. I missed a mass chunk in the beginning due to multitasking and entertaining friends and family with questions, comments and concerns. By about 9 or so, I was live-tweeting with the rest and best of them.

The particular highlights were the tributes to musicals, Bond, winning speeches by Jennifer Lawrence, Quentin Tarantino, Daniel Day-Lewis and Ben Affleck. I particularly enjoyed the used of the Jaws theme as the wrap up music. And surprise, surprise! First Lady Obama presented the Best Picture award via satellite! I thought MacFarlane was a pretty good host. Ratings were up so that’s a good sign he’ll be back.

There are more, I’m sure, but my timing in recapping is bad as I’m still trying to catch up from the sleep I lost staying up to watch the whole show. For more insight, tune in to the next episode of The Lost Dial.
