Oscar winners roundup: The Complete List

Ben Affleck OscarsClearly, I haven’t been covering the Academy Awards on Bizzam!!.  The reasoning is that since I haven’t seen all the films, my predictions would actually be pretty pointless.  How can I say what will be best picture if I haven’t seen any of the films?  If I tried to predict the awards, I would just be making guesses and to me that is just pointless.  Now that the awards show has aired, though, I can feel pretty confident about posting the winners of the little golden man.

Se, here we go (bold titles are the winners):

BEST MOTION PICTURE 

“Amour”
“Argo”
“Beasts of the Southern Wild”
“Django Unchained”
“Les Misérables”
“Life of Pi”
“Lincoln”

(Note: I have watched Argo this week, and personally feel that it should not have won best picture.  I wasn’t terribly impressed with the film.  I will have my review up soon.)
