Related Strips: #565: What Price Victory?
In case you didn't watch the Oscars, yes, that's how this played out. How to Train Your Dragon lost to Toy Story 3 in Best Animated Feature, and John Powell's score for Dragon lost to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's The Social Network score. At the very least, Dragon lost to two very solid nominees.
To the non-winning nominees in the Best Original Screenplay, Best Director or Best Picture categories, I'm afraid I can't say the same. The King's Speech — which I enjoyed — had a perfectly contrived Oscarbait script, solid but unremarkable direction, and was a terrific film overall — but not one for the ages, like The Social Network or even the dark horse nominee, Winter's Bone. It was this year's Shakespeare in Love… and, apparently the Academy agreed. Alas.
If you watched the show, who were you rooting for that either got the Oscar or didn't?
