From the monthly archives: "February 2013"

So the Oscars happened for the 85th time last night. The good news: I won 10 bucks off of Jennifer Lawrence’s win. The better news? Some people won golden statues for their achievement in film. I bet that trumps 10 bucks, but I have never won a statue of a golden man, so I can’t be certain. For the sixth time in the Awards history there was a tie, this time in Sound Editing (Check below for the winners). Jennifer Lawrence was absolutely adorable…you know you always hope someone falls when going to claim their award, don’t act like you don’t. She’s got this honest, real person demeanor about her, so she was the perfect person to beef it while going up the stairs. Adele’s Skyfall actually beat out Suddenly from Les Miserables (Did not see that one coming, but what can’t Adele do?). There were 24 awards in total, so I cannot write about every single category (I could, but I doubt you would want to read all of that) so to recap the winners or check them out for the first time because you were actually doing something besides watching the ceremony (WEIRDOS!) see below.
