| Billy's back! George is upset and Meryl the best wins again! Best picture is a nod to yesteryear.
"The 84th Annual Academy Awards" was not one of the best shows yet, it was far from the worst. As having funny guy Billy Crystal back as host improved the pace and laughs of the show. Evening though some of Crystal's skits and singing gets a little old still his jokes brought joy and the opening montage of seeing Billy in all of the best picture nominees was a blast. Interesting during the show was seeing clips of interviews with stars telling of their favorite movies and explaining how they felt that film has impacted life and culture, as by watching film anyone can take something from it and be inspired. Also moving as always was the tribute to those that we lost during the past year. As is becoming the norm again the past years winner presented the category in which they had won in.

As for the awards most went as planned as the academy finally got it right awarding Christopher Plummer(best supporting actor) an Oscar as at 82 he's the oldest to ever win heck he's almost as old as the Oscar's(84 years). However in the best actor race the man himself George Clooney was upset losing to "The Artist's" French macho man the talented Jean Dujardin as evidenced by the other wins including the best picture win "The Artist" proved that Hollywood was paying tribute to the old days of cinema and the silent film era as this picture was the first silent film to win top honors since 1929's "Wings". Nice and fitting was seeing the best actress in the business win for Best Actress as the transformed and always real and believable Meryl Streep(a 17 time nominee) won her third Oscar as she was stunning and direct as Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady".

Overall it wasn't the best Oscars, yet not the worst it was good seeing Billy back and I'm glad the class act veterans like Streep and Plummer came away with wins. And only fitting was the academy paying tribute to old Hollywood's silent era by awarding "The Artist" best picture.
