      Agreed, the Bond celebration was a massive let down, opportunity missed by the Academy there

      At least the Academy acknowledged Bond's 50th anniversary. I liked the fact they brought Shirley Bassy out to sign Goldfinger. I knew they'd never reunite the bonds, why would Sir Sean want to leave his golf in spain to attend a four hour ceramony ? and why would Pierce Brosnan want to remind everyone about Bond when he's trying to move on with his career ?

      TotalFilm not even close to the best improv- that was David Niven after the streaker - the only laugh he'll get is by showing his shortcomings.

      Nice to see you took the Anne Hathaway part out.

      I'm sorry... did you just say that "Life of Pi" shouldn't have won for Cinematography? I love Roger Deakins as much as the next guy, but LOP was a visual feast that deserved every technical award that it received. But I totally agree that the Bond montage was lame with a capital SUCK. It just felt thrown together at the last moment. In fact, the entire show felt cobbled together and awkward. Probably the worst Oscars broadcast I have seen, and I've been watching them for 30 years.

      Improv? Of course. I was also surprised that Jean Dujardin presented the best actress and that Adrien Brody got once an award from Halle Berry. Get your facts straight, before you start composing these lists!

      God, what is wrong with the terrible writers for TF's online content? The very first sentence p****d me off, such sloppy, moronic journalism. "Did Daniel know that Meryl Streep was going to present him with his record-breaking third Best Actor Oscar?" Yes. As per Oscar tradition, the Best Actor Oscar is awarded by the winner of the previous year's Best Actress award, and vice versa, and the same for Best Supporting Actor and Actress. Octavia Spencer presented the Best Supporting Actor, Christopher Plummer presented Best Supporting Actress, Jean Dujardin presented Best Actress and Meryl Streep presented Best Actor. Even if this was the very first Oscar ceremony you'd watched, I think it's relatively apparent that that's how it works, never mind the fact that the announcer on the night blatantly said exactly who each of the presenters were and that they'd each won the previous year. I really don't know why I continue to read the online content for TotalFilm. It's consistently garbage, such terrible written tripe that screams of lads mag content/writing style. It's such terrible, terrible work that I'm surprised TotalFilm would want to publish it at all.

      "After all, when Spielberg's Jaws was nominated for Best Picture, he famously didn't get a Best Director nod. We wonder if that's happened since? " It happened this year. Argo won Best Picture, and Ben Affleck wasn't nominated for Best Director. It also happened in 1989, when Driving Miss Daisy inexplicably won Best Film but Bruce Beresford wasn't nominated. Come on TF. Seriously.

      Telfos, TF knew that, that's why they wrote that, come on that's so obvious. Don't know about Driving Miss Daisy, but definitely Argo, they even mention it later on.
