Posts Tagged ‘how do they decide the Oscar winners?’

I’m not saying it was the best film of the year, but Ben Affleck’s Argo was way, way better than Lincoln, Life of Pi, and even Zero Dark Thirty – see my earlier post here. I haven’t seen Amour, so I can’t say whether Affleck deserved to triumph over Haneke; but he is certainly a worthy winner.

And yes, Jennifer Lawrence was much more interesting in Silver Linings Playbook than Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty, even though I would still have given Chastain the Oscar for her role in Malick’s The Tree of Life (I know, that was two years ago; I’m still haunted by it…).
