4 years ago

Hi everyone!
Im so excited, this was literally the first time Ive seen the Academy Awards live because here in my country in starts at 1am and ends up like at 4am which is a bit late, but this time I did the effort of staying awake lol I was really excited with this years host Seth MacFarlane.
So, here are the winners and the nominees:
<strong>Best Picture </strong>:
- Argo - Won
- Amour
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- Django Unchained
- Les Misérables

This was really a surprise to me since I was expecting that Lincoln would win, I liked Argo and I think it actually deserved to win, Ben Affleck did a great job with this movie.

- Michael Haneke (Amour)
- David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook)
