The Oscars- 2012 Winners

The highly respected Oscar

The Oscars are quite possibly my favourite awards, not only because everyone is beautifully dressed (OK some people do it get very wrong, but the majority have good stylists) but because it is probably the highest accolade you can receive as an actor. Now I admit I don’t care much about who wins for ‘Best Cinematography’ or ‘Best Sound mixing’, for me it is all about ‘Best Actress’, ‘Best Actor’ and the supporting roles (perhaps ‘Best Picture’ also). So if you happened to miss the awards (most people were curled up asleep in bed) then allow me to share some of the winners with you.
