Here’s what we know: Amy Adams won for best actress, finally! Well, she was amazing! Leo DiCaprio won for the Wolf and I love the idea of HER winning best script. For the entire list, check out Variety.com. 12 years a Slave was just named best motion picture! Shouldn’t there be something for ScarJo as the voice of the OS in the movie HER, does anyone else agree? And, isn’t that the whole point of HER, that there is a 4th dimension that is very much a part of our everyday lives?
With the exception of the Brooklyn Nine Nine, the nominations and wins, meaning, everything else was fairly predictable. Not a criticism, but an acknowledgement of the incredible talent we have truly gown to love, admire and respect. The choices are tough because the artists are all amazing. New talent, who was the Octavia Spencer this year, doesn’t seem like there were any unexpectedly new faces outside of the cast of 12 Years a Slave? So, ‘shout outs’ to everyone who was nominated and the winners!
The question is: what about short film, short video and webisodes?! Definitely not part of the Golden globes or the People’s Choice Awards, but Academy Award recognition. So, artists and fans, we have work to do! itsashort.com proposes awards for short film, short video and webisodes series: Shorties? Kinda catchy? There have got to be better suggestions, leave suggestions in the comment section below and for the next 30 days, this post will appear regularly to engage a discussion for the ‘shorts’ awards.
Also, who gave the best Acceptance Speech? We know whose speech didn’t make the short or long list..no need to go there! And, please share your favorite Amy/Tina moment!
