Now, the Oscars have passed and I can give my reactions to the results. Some, I agree with, others, not so much. So now for part two of my Oscars article; here’s what I think of how the Academy distributed its awards.

#1. Black Panther: Best Original Music Score, Best Costume Design, Best Production Design.

This was one of the best Marvel movies ever made, in my humble opinion. Complex writing, great acting, amazing music, I could go on. Now, was it deserving of Best Picture? Probably not. But it definitely deserves the awards it did win. Overall, the Academy made some good choices on this one.

#2. The Favourite: Best Actress

I would be insulted if I had made one of the other movies in the running for Best Picture and this was the competition. Thankfully, it didn’t win that, but it did win best actress, which I guess makes sense, as you have to be a pretty great actor not to constantly break character and point out how garbage the script is.

#3. Bohemian Rhapsody: Best Actor, Best Sound Mixing, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing

Admittedly I don’t really understand what most of the Oscars this movie won are, but I do agree that Rami Malek deserved best actor. Very few people could even begin to capture even a tiny amount of the energy Freddie Mercury carried, but he nailed it. Truly an amazing performance.

#4: Ralph Breaks the Internet: None

This painfully underwhelming sequel was so terrible, I don’t think it deserved to be made, not even to mention nominated for best animated picture.

#5: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: Best Animated Feature

This movie is the first animated movie that truly deserves the title in a long time, even based on animation alone. It has been far too long since a true innovation that has changed the game in the animation industry, and this will (fingers crossed) be it.
