UPDATE, March 2, 2014, 1pm GMT+8:Gravity won the most number of awards (7 including Best Director), but 12 Years a Slave won the night’s highest honor, Best Picture. As expected, Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor, Cate Blanchett won Best Actress, Alfonso Cuaron won Best Director, Jared Leto won Best Supporting Actor, and Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress.
The screenplay categories were also not a surprise at all: Spike Jonze won Best Original Screenplay for Her, and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay for 12 Years a Slave.
This is it! Finally!
Unfortunately, we don’t have the cable channel that airs the Oscars live here in the Philippines. Darn it. Our cable was bought by the same company that owns the rights (or something like that) to the channel that exclusively airs the Oscars live here, but, darn it, the channel still isn’t available for us! I wonder how much money they make during awards season. Must be huge if they refuse to share…
Anywho, I’ve been looking for a decent live stream of the Oscars, but no! What is this? Is fate merely letting me down easy? Is Leo not going to win that upset that critics have been talking about for weeks? Does fate merely want to save me from that heartbreak? Thank you, fate, but I’d still like to see the entire thing. So, will you please let me?
Ah, thank you! One of my neighbors has let me watch the Oscars at her place. Time for an Oscar viewing party with my neighbor! Thank you, dear! Thank you, fate!
Here are the list of nominees. I will update this as the awards go along. So keep refreshing!
