Oscar 2012 Wrap-Up

It was very crazy Oscars last night with top awards being even split being The Artist and Hugo, who got 5 a-piece (though the top award went to The Artist).  There were many unexpected wins this year, which really affected people’s Oscar pools.  I for one only got 13 of my predictions correct, which is my lowest tally since 2008.  Most of my misses were in the technical awards and I still managed to get all, but one, of the main awards correct.

I also have to note that after waiting 8 years for Billy Crystal to host again, I found that it didn’t have the same “oomph” of his previous hosting gigs.  That said, he was still better than many of the other recent hosts.

Anyways, I shall conclude with a transcript of all my tweets made during the broadcast:
