89th Academy Awards Wrap-Up!

Well, everyone’s talking about that ending! For those of you who don’t know, there was a mix-up at the end of the ceremony wherein La La Land was accidentally awarded the Best Picture title, but it was actually supposed to go to Moonlight. They later fixed the mistake, but it was still an amusing, yet embarrassing thing to witness.

Otherwise, the awards weren’t all that bad even with some surprise wins. I didn’t end up beating my score from last year however; I only got 15/24 right this year. But, it’s still my 2nd highest score in guessing the Oscars wins.

Congratulations to Disney and Pixar for winning Best Animated Feature (Zootopia), Best Animated Short (Piper), and Best Visual Effects (The Jungle Book). For a list of all the Oscars winners, click here.

My 89th Academy Awards Predictions!

oscars-2017-89thacademyawards

It’s that time of year again: Oscars season! Like usual, I’ll be making my predictions for which 2016 films I think will win which award. The ones that I think SHOULD win will be colored RED and the ones that I think WILL win will be colored BLUE. If they happen to be the same, then I’ll color them BOTH COLORS! Like usual, I’ll leave the top 6 awards (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Animated Feature) for the end.

Last year, I had my best prediction score: 17 correct out of 24 categories! Can I beat that this year? Let’s see!

My Thoughts: THE WIND RISES (2013)

The Wind Rises was a Studio Ghibli film that I’ve wanted to see for a long time, but due to various circumstances, I wasn’t able to see it until last week. I had heard great things about it: It was a Studio Ghibli film inspired by true events rather than something fantastical, it was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars (with many people thinking it should have won the award instead of Frozen), and it was going to be Hayao Miyazaki’s last film ever as he was retiring!

Well, so much for that plan!

Well, so much for that plan!

So, did I end up enjoying this film and thinking it’s amazing as everyone says it is? Well, let’s take a look! (By the way, I watched the English dub of the film.)
