YES Alicia Vikander! Such a deserved win. Her performance in The Danish Girl was definitely what made the movie for me. Great direction by Tom Hooper.
Production Design is so often overlooked but vital to creating an atmosphere and bringing the director's vision to life. Congrats to the Mad Max team!
Mad Max is on a roll tonight! Attention to detail and visuals really do pay off. One of the more interesting aesthetic styles of the past year.
It'll be interesting to see who takes home the Oscar for Best Picture... The Revenant is visually stunning and I love it's use of natural lighting but Room has a much stronger and heartfelt story that I think the Academy will go for. Unless Spotlight is able to pull through and take the title....
Speaking of visually stunning... Rachel McAdams. Loved her performance in Spotlight. I hope she continues to take on dramatic roles in the future. She's a strong actress (and Canadian!!!).
Nice to see The Revenant rewarded for it's great cinematography. Natural lighting is definitely something we hope to utilize on Goliath this summer. #goliaththefilm
It's hard to recognize great editing. If it's invisible and you don't notice it, that means the editor did a good job;)
Okay Mad Max, let's share the love here
Just about to sign off - I have laundry to do!
Prediction: Mad Max wins the next 17 Oscars and then Room takes home best picture. I'll be continuing the conversation on Twitter @lukevillemaire & be sure to check out my upcoming feature film, Goliath, at goliaththefilm.ca!
