THE 84th ACADEMY AWARDS : AND THE OSCAR GOES TO…

THE 84th ACADEMY AWARDS : AND THE OSCAR GOES TO…

The 84th Academy Awards is celebrating the movie in all of us as its theme this year, and among the nominees, we’ve got two love letters to the cinema. ‘The Artist‘ yang membawa kita kembali ke sejarah sinema dalam bentuk paling konvensional, dan satunya lagi, ‘Hugo‘, yang justru luput dari perhatian banyak awards lain dan awalnya banyak diperkirakan hanya bakal muncul sebagai penghias daftar itu. But then we knew, hype ke karya seorang Martin Scorsese yang jauh berbeda dari film-filmnya biasanya, makin hari kian meningkat dari peredarannya yang meluas. Bahkan perlahan mulai meninggalkan ‘The Help‘ yang sebelumnya diperkirakan jadi kontender yang sama hebatnya. So this morning, in Kodak Theatre, Hollywood, hosted by Billy Crystal, these two love letters to the cinema has fought their way to the top.

The result, ‘The Artist‘, boleh jadi memenangkan tiga dari kategori utama ; Best Picture, Best Actor untuk Jean Dujardin dan Best Director untuk Michel Hazanavicius, plus dua dari kategori Best Score dan Best Costume Design. Sementara ‘Hugo‘ berjaya dengan jumlah piala yang sama, semua dari sisi teknis utama ; Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction dan Best Cinematography. But after all, the actual winner is the cinema itself. Both has brought us back to our love to cinemas. Celebrating The Movie In All Of Us.

Then it’s not Oscar if not filled with some highlights and surprises. Beyond those love competition, this year’s Academy Awards has marked the comeback of Meryl Streep to the Best Actress In a Leading Role Winner from ‘The Iron Lady‘. Being the most nominated thespian in the history of Oscar (17 nominations since her first in 1978’s ‘The Deer Hunter‘), this was her third Oscar after 29 longspan years (the last was 1982’s ‘Sophie’s Choice‘). Streep beat Viola Davis in her strong acting in ‘The Help‘ which won many sympathy from the audience, too.

In the Best Actor in the Supporting Role, Christopher Plummer set another record for the oldest actor to win an Oscar, from his deep acts in ‘Beginners‘, while Iran has also brought the mesmerizing Asghar Farhadi‘s ‘A Separation‘ as their first movie to win an Oscar. Another highlight was  ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘, which surprisingly won the Best Editing from the works of Angus Wall & Kirk Baxter, one that has a retro side in David Fincher‘s darkened style.
