Yeah.

I can see why they put Nichols in the anchor spot.

What blows me away was their putting Shirley Temple in the mix last year. One of the few truly iconic movie stars in the entire history of Hollywood.

Unsure about the watercolor effects for the In Memorian.

Mike Nichols was the last person in the In Memoriam. I think Sonic Youth and Franz Ferdinand were the only ones correctly predicting it.

Amazing. The first time I've gotten all 3 shorts winners right and I get the freaking make-up award wrong! They chose the least imposing stuff! :(

The presenters and winners look like they're standing on an astrological chart.

That whole performance was representative of the entire film: loud, bright, garish, repetitive, and annoying. I was probably one of the few people not upset that it was snubbed in the Feature Animation category.


I wasn't either. And my eight year old daughter hated the film (her favourite of the year was The Boxtrolls)


Sounds like your eight year old already has excellent taste in films. You are clearly doing something right. :D

I feel like whoever designed the choreography for that performance felt the same way.
