Oscars 2013: And The Winners Are…

“The quest to make Tommy Lee Jones laugh begins now…!”
And with that Seth MacFarlane kicked off his hosting of the Oscar show. I wasn’t too thrilled with his jokes or his “We Saw Your Boobs” intro song, but seeing “onse” Charlize and Channing Tatum dancing, a la Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers style,  saved that opening.

Genius move to have the First Lady, Michelle Obama – live from the White House – join Jack Nicholson to present Best Picture to Argo. Sweet justice for Best-Director-snubbed Ben Affleck.

And of course, the great news for South Africa – Searching for Sugar Man, the documentary with very close ties to the country, made by the tenacious Swedish director Malik Benjelloul, won Best Documentary.

The show aside, a greater sign of the times, next to longtime Governors Ball chef Wolfgang Puck getting onto Twitter, is that the Kickstarter-funded Inocente won Best Documentary Short.
