Getting an Oscar or even get nominated for one is surely one of the biggest things that one achieve, as only getting in this awards race is known to be one of the biggest achievement for any celebrity. At the beginning of every New Year, this particular award for previous year’s movies is given in order to acknowledge the work of all the artists.The Oscar award committee is a group of well known people who judge and analyze celebrities on the basis of their performance in the previous year’s movies and then setup their names in the nomination category.
These awards are given for:
- Best movie of the year
- Best Actor
- actor in supporting role etc.
Most of the common people are concerned more about the movie, actor, actress, director and actor in supporting role, as these are known to be the one who are actually in front of their eyes and they are the one whose performance people can actually judge. This year’s Oscars were quite disappointing as compared to the previous one, as in most cases it seems that the jury was emotionally driven, as a good number of “Just Okay” movies were nominated this time which was quite disappointing for most of the people, while there were a good number of disappointments too in other categories well.
Let’s just begin with:
Argo was awarded as the best movie of the year. It was surely quite good, as the story was way much distinctive from others. However a whole lot of people were expecting Django Unchained will take the award, as it was surely out of bound as compared to the others and was surely better than Argo. This was the first big disappointment of the Oscars this year.
Actor in a Leading Role
Well, that’s the category in which I don’t have any problem, as Daniel Day-Lewis gave an exceptional performance and took the award. He was playing the role of Abraham Lincoln in Movie Lincoln.
Jennifer Lawrence snatches the award of Best Actress from Silver Linen Playbook. Her act was exceptionally well, as this young actress took the entire thing to a whole new level. However most of the people think that her acting wasn’t good enough that she would be awarded with an Oscar, but none others were that good too. This time it was the problem with the entire nominee’s.
Actor in a supporting role
This was surely the toughest category among all, as the race for Best actor in supporting role was quite tough. However jury managed to select the right man for the Oscar who was Christoph Waltz, while Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones were also some of the toughest nominees for the Oscar.
