This was the first time that I saw the Oscars being away at school and all, but it wasn't a bad show. There were a couple of things I wasn't impressed with, but it was an enjoyable show to watch. I regret missing the many movies that were made in the past year. Hopefully I'll be able to make so many others in the future and I'll see some of these on DVD.
There was one surprise last night. Comedian Jamie Foxx as best actor for Ray. I didn't expect that, but he did take a leap like so many comedians. Indeed it turns out many comedians can be good dramatic actors. I though it would have been Clint Eastwood or Leonardo DiCaprio.
Also Morgan Freeman won and oscar for best supporting actor in Million Dollar Baby. I've always like Freeman he's made some good movies Shawshank Redemption and Lean on Me to name a couple. Perhaps I'll pop in Unforgiven another movie he made with Clint Eastwood when I get back home.
Martin Scorsese was denied again this year. There was so much buzz about Gangs of New York over two years ago and then there was The Aviator last year. Lately Scorsese has be doing some period pieces. I liked Gangs of New York but Scorses isn't getting an Oscar yet. BTW, I have Taxi Driver at home and I've seen Goodfellas and pieces of Casino and Raging Bull has any of his movies won an Oscar of any kind. Well I'll either find some information on that or someone will come through for me.
In any case good show, I look forward to more.
