My Oscar Night 2016


Did you watch the Oscars last night? 
Like every year, I spent the night at my I favourite cinema in Vienna (Gartenbaukino) and had such a great time. Thanks to the time difference that meant staying up till 6 am, but it was totally worth it. Good thing that on Oscar night they always serve coffee for free all night and at 3 am everybody also gets free breakfast. Additional to that, there's an Oscar bet where you get the chance to win all kinds of things, and if you come in evening dress you also get a free drink. Though I never do that because honestly, who wants to spend the whole night at the cinema in a fancy dress and high heels? I'm alway going for comfortable, as do most of the other people there. Doesn't this sound all great? Well, it is. 
But the day (or night) is not just about watching the Oscars; it 's also about watching films that are nominated. 

That's how the program looked this year:

12 PM | THE HATEFUL EIGHT
4 PM | AMY
6:30 PM | SON OF SAUL 
9 PM | SHORT FILMS
11:15 PM | MAD MAX: FURY ROAD 

Some people go hardcore with watching all the films and the award show, but as much as I love film and going to the cinema, I couldn't do that. You'd have to spend 18 hours there. 18! That's A LOT!
I just went to see the short films and Mad Max.

So, what are your thoughts on the winners? I’m pretty happy actually.

Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his Oscar so everybody can chill now. 
Alejandro González Iñárritu is such a great director (I loved Birdman and Biutiful) so it was well deserved that he won the second time in a row, this time for The Revenant. The same goes for Emmanuel Lubezki (Best Cinematography). They make a great team.
No surprise that Inside Out won Best Animated Feature Film but Anomalisa is the winner of my heart. A masterpiece. 
Mark Rylance was quite a surprise, and I would have preferred Tom Hardy for Best Supporting Actor (he was killing it in The Revenant), but oh well. 
I still can’t believe that Mad Max: Fury Road went home with the most Oscars (6!), but it makes me so happy. What a fantastic movie. #TeamMadMax
Also, yay for The Big Short (Best Adapted Screenplay). Another excellent film with an amazing screenplay. And Ryan Gosling is in it *cough*. 

The only thing I strongly disagreed with was Best Original Song. Don’t get me wrong; I love Sam Smith. He is a great singer and seems to be such a nice guy, but THAT AWFUL BOND SONG. Urgh.

All in all, it was a great night, but I need some sleep now!
