I think the lack of screenpay nomination was telling. Any idea if a someone has *ever* won best picture without being nominated for one of the screenplay awards? (finally made it back far enough on wikipedia. Looks like the Titanic was the last film to do so)

I think the awards it won painted a accurate picture: It was a stunning work of sound, art and directing but wasn't the best all-around film.

And yeah, between Amy and Tina doing the Golden Globes and Ellen the movie awards rocked this year

I mean, the lack of screenplay nomination wasn't surprising, and certainly wasn't any more damning than all the movies that have won without acting nominations. I predicted Gravity because I knew Cuaron was a lock and I wasn't willing to predict a split. Statistically, that's far rarer than a film winning without writing or acting nominations.

I also just liked Gravity the most, but 12 Years is certainly deserving as well.

Glad to see American Hustle not win, seemingly anything.

How often do films win best picture and best director? When Gravity won director I had a feeling it wouldn't get picture.
I just looked at the winners since 2000 and 10 out of 14 won best picture and best director. I don't know if that trend holds up throughout the history of the Academy Awards though.

Four different films winning the top four awards has gotta be pretty rare though, right?

How was Mud not nominated for anything..?
I sincerely have NO idea, and I'm upset for American Hustle and Philomena taking nothing home, but I think the big win of the night was Spike Jonze getting his Screenplay statue

Didn't know Cumberbatch was in 12 Years. Plus Star Trek and The Hobbit, and his Sherlock gig, that's a busy year for him
also The Fifth Estate and August: Osage County

Spike Jonze - former skateboarder, current hipster douchebag
also a man who has never made a film less than incredible

in my opinion, him winning the Oscar was partially out of being completely deserving and also as the Academy apologizing for not giving him the well-deserved Director nomination

If Frozen had lost that there would be rioting in the streets or something, lets be honest.
Am I crazy for having thought that Frozen wasn't going to win anything tonight? I REALLY thought Wind Rises would take home the Oscar, and I suspected U2 for song but would have preferred Karen O

I'm not even particularly anti-Frozen. I just think what really grinds my gears is that I liked a bunch of Frozen's songs better than "Let it Go"
