I was happy to see Anne Hathaway win "Best Supporting Actress"! After seeing her near-perfect performance as Fantine in "Les Misérables", I felt she really deserved the Oscar for it. It was great to see Jennifer Lawrence win "Best Actress" too. I'll admit that I haven't seen the film she did that won her the award, but from what I have seen and heard, it sounds like she was the right choice.
I thought "Lincoln" would win more awards, but it was great to see Daniel Day-Lewis win "Best Actor" for his performance as the titular character. From what clips I've seen, it looks like her really got into character. I still need to see the full movie though, before I can fully judge. (I think Hugh Jackman deserves recognition for his role as Valjean though, he did a fantastic job!)
I was also hoping that "The Hobbit" would win something. I thought it was a good contender for "Best Makeup and Hairstyling" - seriously, did you see the drawves' hair? But to be fair, the makeup and hairstyling was good in "Les Mis".
The host receives mixed reviews, several performers give fantastic musical performances, (arguably the best thing about the awards) and the first lady makes a unexpected appearance. But all that aside, what did you all think of the nominations and the winners?
