Oscar Winners

Well, the Oscars are over and the winners went more or less to form. Gravity was perhaps the big winner with 7 awards but mostly in the technical awards (Alfonso Cuoron did win two, one for best Director and one for Editing). Dallas Buyer's Club got three, with two in the acting categories (Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto). And 12 Years a Slave got three, taking one in for Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o) and the big one: Best Picture. Cate Blanchett deservedly won for Best Actress. But American Hustle shuffled off with no trophies.

As for the Oscar Party in Portland, it was a huge hit. After Sharon walked away with the honors last year, there was much hype about this year's event. The competition was tight, with several scoring over 20 correct picks. But movie man walked off with the big trophy, having picked 22 of the 24 winners.

The trophy, hand made by Miss Ava, was a beautiful silver statuette, which will grace the trophy cabinet for years to come. Sadly, the acceptance speech had to be cut short due to the Oscars going long. If I failed to thank you, my apologies. There's always next year.
