Mooks at the Oscars

Popular mooks performed well at the Oscars.  While Best Picture was a disappointment for the mook world, (with five out of the nine nominations being book adaptations) the most favored win was Octavia Spencer for Best Supporting Actress in “The Help.”

Big winners of the night were “The Artist” and “Hugo.”  While “Hugo” swept mostly technical categories, “The Artist” proved to be the underdog in the most major categories.

My opinion on the night?  I was a little disappointed.  I would have liked to see some variation in the winners.  For example, while Meryl Streep is phenomenal in every aspect of the word, the category for Best Actress was tough this year.  I was rooting for Viola Davis and Rooney Mara, but any of these actresses could have won.   A big congrats goes to “The Descendants” for Best Adapted Screenplay (I really, really need to read this novel.)
