    TOMMY LEE JONES AWARD: Joaquin Phoenix

    MOST DESERVING WINNER: “Skyfall” by Adele-Best Original Song
    LEAST DESERVING WINNER: Chris Terrio-Adapted Screenplay

    BEST SPEECH: Christoph Waltz
    WORST SPEECH: the Visual effects guy cut off by the Jaws theme-wasn’t a bad speech, but the way it happened was just wrong

    BEST WINNER REACTION: Ang Lee-Best Director
    DULL WINNER REACTION: Can’t really think of any

    WORST PRESENTER: they were all pretty lousy-Rudd/McCarthy-but my pick is the classless Kristen Stewart
    BEST PRESENTER: none

    By sour winner reaction do you mean the sore losers? I’d have to say Michael Haneke or Emmanuelle Riva.

    Chris Terrio was deserving in my opinion. The first scene alone is Oscar-worthy. I think that Joaquin Phoenix is a hypocrite. He can talk shit about the Oscars, but he still comes?!

    Most Deserving Winner: Ang Lee, Best Director — Ang is the man!  So happy for him.  He’s now the only person with 2 Oscars for directing, 2 BAFTAs for directing, 2 Globes for directing, 2 DGA awards, 2 Golden Lions, and 2 Golden Bears.  Too bad he doesn’t have a Best Picture…
    Least Deserving Winner: Argo, Best Picture — in this great year for film, this choice will not hold up well, especially when people look back and don’t understand the Zero Dark Thirty controversy, a film that surpassed Argo in every way.

    Best Speech: Daniel Day-Lewis, Best Actor — wonderful speech, wonderful moment.  Meryl liked it!  His jokes were the funniest all night.  Too bad it happened so late in the program when people can barely stand to keep watching.
    Worst Speech: Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress — this was her big moment, but I’m sure her fall had something to do with her rather spontaneous speech, so when considering that: Anne Hathaway, Best Supporting Actress — just reeked of phoniness and prostitutes.
    Most Hilariously Obnoxious Self-absorbed Speech: Quentin Tarantino, Best Original Screenplay — right out of the James Cameron speech book!!  He mentioned the presenter was his neighbor…he probably would’ve mentioned how he had to go to the bathroom….and he practically said he was the king of the world when he thanked his actors: “Boy, this time did I do it.” (Just look at Jamie Foxx’s reaction, Kathleen Kennedy behind him is rather funny too since I imagine the Spielberg camp can’t stand Tarantino)  And then, of all the songs to play him off with they choose Gone With the Wind—I wish Quentin had picked up on that, oddly appropriate.

    Best Winner Reaction: Roberto Benigni, Best Foreign Film — Oh, wait…wrong year.  Probably Ang, for being so happy and humble, bowing to the audience and then thanking the movie god.
    Best Loser Reaction: Jessica Chastain, Best Actress — She’s so classy and looked stunning, even though she knew it wasn’t her night.  I wanted it for her and felt terribly that she was taken down with the ZDT ship.  But it’s all Sony’s fault.  To think they were toasting wins for Best Picture and Best Actress back in October is just pathetic.
    Most Sour Winner Reaction: Ben Affleck, Argo — Still being bitter about the snub in his speech.  It’s there.  Good thing he was snubbed, it was good to see a deserving director who crafted a director-driven film get credit this year, if only once.
    Most Sour Loser Reaction: Steven Spielberg, Best Director + Best Picture — Well, he wasn’t really sour, but you could just tell the guy looked like he was going to cry.  He wasn’t happy at all, even when Ben called him “a genius.” (rather funny when you consider the comments made by Rep. Courtenay on Lincoln a few weeks back—these people are so phony)

    Best Presenter(s): Jack Nicholson, Best Picture — played on with the absolutely gorgeous music from Chinatown as he seemed to float over to the mic.  = LEGEND!!  He can come back every year.
    Worst Presenter(s): Michelle Obama, Best Picture — just NO, nobody shares the stage with Jack. This was kind of insulting to him, and politics should be kept out of the Oscars; it already dominates the whole voting process.

    Best Reaction to Oscar Night: Joan Rivers on Fashion Police — Holy cow is she a riot. Go check this out if you missed it and can stand her jokes. She gave Anne Hathaway worst dressed and said at least Amanda Seyfriend doesn’t have to keep pretending that she can stand her anymore.

    Yeah I agree the Obama thing was dreadful.

    Joaquin Phoenix’s film is a Weinstein release. He can talk bad and not want to be there, but you know Weinstein would never let him skip it. Plus he goes to support Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. Also, he just doesn’t like the attention-look at him during the Venice QA.

    Joan Rivers is a classless pig who deserves to hide under a box for the rest of his dour life. She’s a disgrace to humanity.
    I’m tired of all the Anne Hathaway hate.
    Tarantino is arrogant as ever, but everybody bows down to him. I don’t get it.

    I LOVE JOAN RIVERS!!!! I’m glad she’s not classy….. classy is BORING!

    Most Deserving Winner – Ang Lee
    Least Deserving Winner – Argo ( Best Picture )

    Best Speech – Ang Lee
    Worst Speech – The Visual Effects guy. His speech was fine but the academy should really apologize to him for cutting him off with that obnoxious JAWS theme thing…..
