If you would have told me as few as five years ago that Matthew McConaughey would win an Academy Award for Acting, I would have bet my life savings against that happening.

That being said, he was awesome in Dallas Buyers Club. As much as I wanted Leo to win (always been a fan) he totally earned it. It was not a great movie, but he was great in it.

And I loved his acceptance speech. I am sure there are people out there who hated it, but I thought it was great.

And we got an "all right, all right, all right". What more could you ask?

Now, does he go Nicholas Cage from here or does he still try to push himself acting wise?

He's probably going to win an Emmy for his work on True Detective.

Speaking of which I'm stunned there hasn't been a post about here.

I did not mention True Detective but he has been FANTASTIC in that too.

As any other actor ever transformed public opinion of an himself so much as McConaughey?

Robert Downey Jr?

Glad for McConaughey, but DiCaprio and Ejiofor were both waaaay better.

RDJ could always act - see Less Than Zero and Chaplin. His acting was never in question.

Oh man, it was more a promo than an acceptance speech, wasn't it? And his "alright, alright, alright" was the catchphrase. I loved it!

I was also fond of Cate Blanchett's speech. She absolutely nailed it when she called the Oscars "random and subjective."

I didn't expect Lawrence to lose Best Supporting Actress even though I thought she was bad in it. American Hustle getting shut out is weird considering it lead the nominations. Its impossible to argue against 12 Years A Slave.

Eh, I kinda figured that would happen. When I saw how many nominations American Hustle got, it just seemed like a joke to me.

It was clearly one of those movies made to get the actors out there, but since no one was too serious and everyone was having fun with their character, they were just never going to hold up against more serious efforts like 12 Years A Slave and Dallas Buyers Club.


Pretty "Meh" Oscars. I think the right movies won for the most part. Would have loved to have seen Bruce Dern win, but knew that wasn't a realistic thing that could happen. Ellen was fine, wasn't too distracting and was even funny at times.

Oh man, gotta disagree about Ellen here. I thought she was *awful,* and actively contributed to one of the more meandering, boring shows from the last five or so years. I don't really have anything against her as such, but it seemed like she ran out of material after her opening and the rest of the time she spent going around the audience just felt like an extended Santino skit. The Selfie That Broke Twitter was pretty awesome, though. But who's the guy in the right who blocked out Angelina Jolie?!

Also awesome: Benedict Cumberbatch, who Ellen correctly introduced as having "the best name ever," photobombing Ellen's selfie with Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The guy blocking Angelina is the brother of Lupita Nyong'o, not even an actor, but obviously having the best time of his life!

As for Cumberbatch, I thought that was awesome too, but I liked his photobomb of U2 on the red carpet even better.

All in all, our family enjoyed the awards for the most part. My kids especially liked the "Frozen" wins.

    I agree. I thought Ellen was awful. I thought she killed the pace of an already slow show. And I do like Ellen and was looking forward to this. But man, was she bad.

Oh yeah, forgot that's another reason Tywin is trying to get on Prince Oberyn's good side. Dorne knows how to deal with Dragons and he is well aware Daenarys has 3. Tywin offers Oberyn a seat in the council to advise the King.
