Everyone’s got Oscars opinions and so do I, and I’m putting mine here, on my blog.
Best Picture: Should’ve been Selma. The first MLK biopic, just a better more enjoyable more thoughtful more emotionally stirring movie than every other movie this year, come on yall. Come on.
Best Director: Richard Linklater for Boyhood. Linklater had the most original idea, took the most risk, and made the biggest most intense commitment of anyone. There’s never been a movie that did what Boyhood did and odds are no other movie ever will.
Best Actor: David Oyelowo in Selma. Seriously yall I shouldn’t even have to explain myself on this.
Best Song: “Everything is Awesome” from The LEGO Movie. They gave this to “Glory” as a token recognition for Selma and an insincere apology for snubbing them in the categories that really matter. “Glory” is not a good song (sorry Common and John Legend), and “Everything is Awesome” is a good song.
Other Awards: I dunno, I either agree or don’t care about the rest.
Best Presentation of an Award: Terrence “When the molly hits” Howard
Moral of the story, fuck the Oscars.
