  1. I’m in China and unable to see the Oscars, but am thrilled to read Nikki’s “snarky” comments. I didn’t have to waste time watching the show, and probably laughed more. Thanks Nikki from China:)

  2. I did not watch the show. Will never watch the Oscars again and have not for the past 6 years. Logged on to check my e-mails thought I would read the dirt. The Artist is a fantastic film. Along with Hugo and my personal fave Midnight in Paris the 3 most enjoyable films of 2011. Hollywood continues to release the same old crap and theses 3 amazing films reminded us that you can relive the past. Hollywood needs a reboot in 2012. As for Meryl Streep…about friggin’ time she gets another. The woman is a Hollywood treasure. But Christopher Plummer gave the best performance by an actor last year…PERIOD. Still, I did not miss the show. My Oscar night is celebrating the films Oscar snubbed in the past. Just watched Louis Malle’s masterpiece Au Revoir Les Enfants which lost to the so-so Babette’s Feast in 1988.

    1. I’m all in with you about those three films, not watching the oscars, and Meryl Streep! Viola Davis was good, but Streep is nothing short of amazing.

    2. I agree with you concerning “Babette’s Feast”. In fact, since that year, I’ve always regarded EVERY Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner as mediocre, while the truly deserving film rarely even gets nominated.

      This year, the late Raoul Ruiz’ “Mysteries of Lisbon”, a perfect masterpiece merging filmmaking with art, did not even garner a nomination from the lazy ol’ Academy members who can’t sit for more than 2 hours (“Marge, I have to change my Depends!”) or who can’t appreciate films that require use of the brain.

      “A Separation”, albeit a good film, is basically Iran’s version of “Kramer vs. Kramer”, though it’s not as good as the latter. It’s merely a drawn out squabble between spouses with a less than satisfying ending.

  3. It was bad enough that george clooney lost to what is a very thin performance by jean dejaurdin, but seriously viola Davis robbed again???? Meryl’s iron lady is not anywhere near her best role, I would have much rather Michelle Williams if not viola. Harvey’s influence is really this deep because there is no other explanation. I wish he was able to bring inglorious bastards to Oscar gold. Oh well. Happy for Meryl, but I hope that viola can get another role as good as her role in the help. It’s just wrong

  4. Rango was the only one I saw and it was fairly entertaining and good animation.

    The rest I won’t waste my time to sit through.

  5. I watched for 10 minutes or so, got to thinking, bad, I will enjoy it more by checking DRUDGE and his links this AM. I was right! NIKKI FINKE has the best critique possible! Thanks Matt.

  6. If Meryl Streep starred in “Saw XXVII”, the movie would be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar . . . and would, most likely, win!

    Academy members don’t even have to see her films anymore; ballots are probably sent out with her box already pre-ticked.
