As you all know, the Oscars is a night where the best in the movie business come together to win awards and congratulate each other on their past year of success. It is a time of reflection, a time of being proud of your work and the work of others, and a time for overall entertainment, whether that is by the host, by the unexpected things that take place, or the fawning over the best and worst dressed. As movie lovers ourselves here at the Moviehouse & Eatery, we like to see the stars that light up our big screens come to life on the stage.
Let’s talk about some of the big stars of the evening, starting with Jennifer Lawrence. She won Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, which she was shocked to be receiving. It’s really hard not to love this 22-year-old success story that’s taking the world by storm with her blunt and humorous personality. Although pretty young to have won an Oscar, she competed against the youngest Oscar nominee in history, Quevenzhané Wallis, the nine year-old star of Beasts of the Southern Wild. There’s still time to see why she won and deserved the award for Best Actress. Come see Silver Linings Playbook at the Moviehouse & Eatery today.
If you haven’t seen Lincoln yet, then you should. Daniel Day-Lewis won the award for Best Actor for his role as Abraham Lincoln himself. The humbled actor accepted his third award for Best Actor, making history by being the first male actor ever to do so. Based the amount of effort he put into his role as the 16th president, we aren’t surprised he won big. Oscar host Seth MacFarlane shared with the audience that it was said that Daniel Day-Lewis never broke character as Lincoln throughout the entire filming process. Talk about dedication!
Star of The Princess Diaries and more recently Les Miserables Anne Hathaway also won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the musical-turned-movie. She took on this difficult character with dedication, and it paid off. Christoph Waltz also took home the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Django Unchained. He was shocked, like many winners, and was grateful to have been in the category with a list of other great actors. He graciously thanked his cast and crewmembers and the director of the film. Christoph won the same award last year for his role in Inglorious Bastards.
And the moment that everyone had been waiting for… the winner of the Best Picture. Having there been nine magnificent nominees for the award, there can only be one winner. That winner was Argo, unexpectedly announced by the First Lady Michelle Obama via satellite. The acceptance of this award was one to be remembered. The three producers, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, and Grant Heslov, were shocked, grateful, and humbled by the award.
As a movie theater, we love movies, and we love to be able to share these great films with you through an exciting movie-watching experience. Come to the Moviehouse & Eatery to feel like you’re a part of the movies and be treated like you’re an Oscar winner yourself.
