Monday Movie Memo: 6 Films That Had A Really Disappointing Oscar Night
The magic number for far too many movies last night at the Academy Awards?
Thatís how many Oscars, combined, were won by American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street, Captain Phillips, Philomena and Nebraska. Four of the nine Best Picture nominees dominated the major Oscar categories. Gravity cleaned up in the technical categories, as expected. Her nabbed a well-deserved Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Of course, 12 Years a Slave took home the Oscar for Best Picture.
What happened outside of the exclusive club? Wasnít this supposed to be the year that Oscar spread the love to numerous films? Shouldnít we have seen some upsets in a few major categories? Did something go wrong? Or was this how it was meant to be all along?
I canít help but think that several films felt like Bruce Dernís character in Nebraska. You donít get an Oscar. How about a hat?
We are up to our eyeballs in Oscar coverage this morning. Read along as we break down:
- The full list of winners.
- The red carpet recap.
