    Catching up on the Oscars results and happenings from last night (no awards for American Hustle which is a result!!) and see the headline that Alain Resnais has died. 91 years but still RIP. Only seen a couple of his films but Hiroshima, mon amour is an absolute gem.

    I managed to correctly guess most of the Oscar's results with ever seeing any of the films nominated :P

    Academy seemed to get most decisions (the main ones, anyway) correct, which makes a nice change.

    /Filmcast here. If you use a podcast app, I'm sure you'll find the rss feed. Check out a couple of episodes and see what you think.

    It was a great set of results, glad to see McConaughey get the nod, and 12 years was always gonna pick up best picture. Speaking as someone who hasn't seen it, was Cuaron's win for best director justified?

    - However, did anyone else thing McConaughey came across as really conceited during his speech? I even thought he was drunk at one point haha.

    Not really. Thought it was a bit odd not to mention AIDS, though.

    I'd say so. Loved Gravity.

    It was just the "I'm my own hero" thing. I think the make up team dedicated their awards to AIDS sufferers particularly from the time of the epidemic, so maybe he thought it didn't need to be said twice.

    More he 'wants to be his hero (in ten years time)', so to aspire to be greater than what he is.

    Should still have got a mention, being the one of the big awards at the ceremony and all. I'd expect that Ejiofor would have dedicated his to slavery, etc.

    I don't really think it's the done thing though, but there we go. Yeah fair enough McQueen did do a little speech when it picked up best film though.

    Pretty much universally happy with these Oscars, particularly Nyong'o and Jonze getting the nod.

    Anyone here seen Keith? It's not usually my type of genre but I rewatched it for the third time tonight, there's just something about it....


    Saw Mud recently as well an it was pretty good, Matthew McConaughey and the kid actors especially were great.

    12 years A Slave was really good. I'd put it on par with Schindler's List

    Please don't spoil the film for me, but what do people think of Only God Forgives?

    This will probably make The Hobbit look like a masterpiece in comparison to other spin offs.
