The 84th Academy Awards Winners

And here are the Oscar winners! I did a horrific 11/24 in my Oscar predictions! I loved Hugo but I never thought it would get a lot of awards but still I'm very pleased it won 5 Oscars! The technical aspect of that film is just amazing. The Girl with the Dragon also pulled a surprise by winning Best Film Editing, this is the same team that won for The Social Network last year so back to back win for them and I must agree with the award, the film was sleekly edited and hold the film together and it's not easy given the film's several subplots. And woah Meryl Streep finally bag her 3rd Oscar beating front runner Viola Davis. And I'm glad Man or Muppet won! Although to be honest I wish The Muppets won for the snubbed Life's a Happy Song instead, but still it's a brilliant funny song and it's cool to have Academy Award winner tagged next to Bret McKenzie.
