Although the award season is over, the buzz from the Oscars is not dying down. Still trending on Twitter and Pinterest the 85th Oscars are one that people will not soon forget. With host Seth MacFarlane cracking jokes left and right and winners such as Daniel Day Lewis (Best Actor) and Jennifer Lawrence (Best Actress) livening up the speeches, there seemed to be no dull moment.

    This year’s Oscars started with MacFarlane dancing and singing his way to change the future with the guidance of future James T. Kirk. According to Kirk he sang a song called “We Saw Your Boobs” to the actresses causing a great deal of tension. He tried fixing it with a dance number accompanied by Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron. Soon after realizing that wouldn’t be enough none other than Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gorden-Levitt joined him in a second song and dance.

After the last effort to change the future, the show truly started. There was no denying that from the start, Life of Pi was a strong contender in almost every category. Winning Best Cinematography, Visual Effects, Original Score, and Director it was a movie that, if you have not seen, you will now. A close second in the awards was Argo taking home Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, and Film Editing.

The starpower that was shown at these awards was like no other Oscars. Along with Daniel Day Lewis making history was the first actor to win 3 Oscars there was also Adele performing her Oscar winning song “Skyfall” in honor of 50 years of Bond. It was also shown through a tie in the Best Product Design between Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty. Although these awards were full of “firsts” such as the youngest and oldest nominees for best actress (Quvenzhane Wallis and Emmanuella Riva), there was also a bit of comfort. Jennifer Lawrence made some laugh out of their seats at her graceful fall up the stairs followed by her awards speech that she opened with, “You guys are just standing because you feel bad that I fell.”

We jumped out of our seats when our favorite stars or movies won, and felt the same sadness that the losing nominees did. With the awards season now put to rest the only question that remains unanswered is, how will they top this next year?
