- AND THE WINNER IS: Last Year’s Winner: Emmanuel Lubezki for The Tree of Life This is the second win for Roger Deakins on his seventh nomination for his work Skyfall. When watching previous Bond films I mostly remember the action but with this news Bond film all I could think about was the beautiful cinematography done by the great Roger Deakins who has now proved he can make anything look beautiful. This is the best looking Bond film ever with Deakin’s use of contrasting light especially in the scenes set in Hong King in patricular with one fight scene seeen through shadows of the fight over the moving bright images of the Hong Kong buildings made it more a visual treat.

- AND THE WINNER IS: Last Year’s Winner: Production Design by Dante Ferretti; Set Design by Francesca Lo Schiavo for Hugo This is the second win for the duo of Sarah Greenwood and Katie Spencer on their third nomination for their work on Anna Karenina. Joe Wright made the complete right decision in the risk of filming the film in a non traditional way which lead to many great sets moving around throughtout the scene changes creating the hightened dramatic atmosphere. The Russian style was kept throughout the design making the film work even better as a newway of telling this period piece in a new and exciting way of storytelling.

- AND THE WINNER IS: Last Year’s Winner: Sandy Powell for Hugo This is the second win for Jacqueline Durran on their third nomination for their work on Anna Karenina. Joe Wright works with the same people and once again the costumes of his film are done by the great Jacqueline Durrano who also took great chances on these costumes designing around 1950’s corture mixed with the style of the clothing worn during the time period the film is set and most of the standout outfits are great symbols of what happens with the story which can only help as the film goes on. Durran displays career best work in this film that she might only be able to match from now on.

January 30, 2013 at 12:41 pm #88312
- AND THE WINNER IS:
Last Year’s Winner: Mark Coulier & J. Roy Helland for The Iron Lady This is the first win for the makeup team lead by Lois Burwell on the film Lincoln.
The transformation for Day-Lewis may hve also come in his great acting but the stellar makeup starting with Lincoln was what made the look of the film even better showing how much Lewis could look like Lincoln. With many extras throughout the film makeup was an important part as many of these people where playing real people and were made to look like them and allowed all of the cast to disappear into their roles showing how strong the milimistic makeup was used well by the team.
Irish!! You brave soul.
LOVE your Awards.January 31, 2013 at 12:08 am #88313

- OUTSTANDING FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM:
Amour (Directed by Michael Haneke)
Bullhead (Directed by Michaël R. Roskam)
A Royal Family (Directed by Nikolaj Arcel)
Rust & Bone (Directed by Jacques Audiard)
January 31, 2013 at 11:37 pm #88315
- AND THE WINNER IS: Last Year’s Winner: A Seperation (Directed by Asghar Farhadi) This is the first win for Michael Haneke in the foreign language category for Amour. Haneke usually makes films that are quite depressing and his follow up to the dark The White Ribbon was a dark film of love that showed that love truly can be endless if the main two characters are examples of that. Scenes play out in such interesting ways and while the end of the story is given to us at the start still the film moves along quite well and really becomes such an emotional experince that I feel in love with nearly everything about the film as it went through the journey of greatness showing that Haneke is one of the better working international directors working today.

February 2, 2013 at 1:47 am #88317
- AND THE WINNER IS: Last Year’s Winner: Carey Mulligan as Sissy in “SHAME” This is the first win for Sally Field on her first nomination for her performance in Lincoln. Sally Field is such a great actress but for the past decade most of her focus has been on television and her triumpth return to the big screen came in playing the greaty written Mary Todd Lincoln in every scene opposite the great Daniel Day-Lewis she helf herself high being able to match him at every point and working with him really showed a new side to her acting that made her even better in this film that even though her screen was smaller then I expected she made the most of out every scene that I feel in love with Field’s film work once again.
