Sorry, blog viewers, I absolutely forgot
to write down that Christopher Waltz

Supporting Actor because I didn't
notice him in this category, I guess
some of you did miss watching the

find that there is a tie in one of the

I was little surprised that the PIXAR animated feature BRAVE (click here) took home the prize, I was completely outraged for this to happen. It should have been the other movies like Tim Burton's FRANKENWEENIE (click here) just as I once believed that HUGO (click here) was going to win for Best Picture in last year's awards ceremony but why would somebody pick BRAVE as the ultimate contender, it's not acceptable and it is a very inbodacious choice. If some of you people are unhappy about it, just tell me about the 85th Academy Awards.


  1. While I still have not seen Brave, the Pixar bias is getting ridiculous. Wreck-It-Ralph or Frankenweenie really should have won Best Animated Picture.


    1. You are right, I may not like the other Pixar films apart from The Incredibles and WALL.E and you wish that studio would produce a mature animated film that doesn't include a heart-warming plot-line, no comic relief and be more interesting than you least expect.
