So let’s start with something fun, who had the best joke of the night? For me, I’ve got to go with Jim Carrey’s rip on Shia LaBeouf. If you haven’t seen the show yet, I won’t spoil it for you, but it was perfect.

By far the recipient I was most pleased with winning was Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street. After all the negative responses I’ve heard from some very sensitive viewers, it was fantastic to see him get the recognition he deserved for that role.

Award I’m most shocked by? Alex Ebert for Best Score in All is Lost. I’ve seen that film, and honestly can’t recall being impressed by the music. In regards to the other nominees, Hans Zimmer for 12 Years a Slave, and John Williams for The Book Thief, I specifically remember cues and themes from both films that I found enthralling. Steven Price’s score for Gravity was haunting. I’m not saying the music for All is Lost wasn’t well produced, but best of the year?

Despite a rather awkward speech from Matthew McConaughey (he actually said “Alright, alright, alright!”), I was pleased to see him receive award recognition after a fantastic year filled with great performances.

Alfonso Cauron for Best Director is well deserved. Gravity is a film I imagine was immensely difficult to make, so watching the end product come out as transporting as it did was incredible.

I’ve watched Steve McQueen’s films ever since Hunger, so it was great to see his harrowing film 12 Years a Slave take home the Best Drama award.

All in all, I really enjoyed the show tonight. Tina and Amy were very funny, I loved that Cranston and company won, kind of wanted Aaron Paul to win, but you can’t have everything in life.

GET STUCKMANNIZED BITCH!
