And the Oscar goes to . . .




Argo 
Best Picture

Despite the crude humor of host Seth McFarlane, the Academy Awards ceremony was fabulous. The highlight of the evening was the tribute to 50 years of James Bond, presented by one of the lovliest of Bond girls, Halle Berry and the hypnotic theme song to Goldfinger performed by the amazing Dame Shirley Bassey.

Congratulations to the winners!

  1. Great recap! I was happy Skyfall won Best Song and tied for Sound Editing - the first awards for the series since the 60's! The Bond tribute was cool - but I'd heard rumors it was going to be bigger - so when it wasn't I was a little disappointed. Still fun to see though!

  2. I wish the Bond tribute had been bigger too, but I did like the montage and the amazing songs (Adelle and Shirley Bassey).Would have SO COOL if all the Bond actors had appeared on stage together!
