While the 85th Annual Academy Awards was short of surprises (or for that matter an truly engaging telecast), it did have Billy Crystal returning as host for the ninth time). Although he played it safe, and came dangerously close to crossing the line at others, he still provided a polished sheen that kept the proceedings afloat.

Should he have been funnier? Probably. Was he better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway last year? Definitely, yes.

However, the Oscars are really about the winners, so without further ado, here is the master list of who got what including the slam dunk by THE ARTIST for coming out of nowhere in the last two months to take home the big prize.

  1. By giving awards to a gimmick such as The Artist, the Academy showed just how shallow their choices can be with the absolutely worst group of nominations they’ve every thrown together. Because of such an elitist tone, I for one boycotted the show this year. If you found the nominees as stuffy as I did, check out the Top 10 Movie Picks of 2011 at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/01/top-10-movie-picks-of-2011.html where you won’t see a single of the Academy’s nominees for Best Picture but you will get some movie artwork I drew up as well as the reviews!
