BEST MOTION PICTURE OF THE YEAR

12 Years a Slave

 

The biggest takeaway from tonight’s Oscars is that genre is breaking through. It did not win Best Picture, like I suspected, but it surprisingly won Best Director. Alfonso Cuarón won the DGA, and Gravity won the PGA (not to mention the Golden Globe) prior until tonight, but I personally did not see that genre would take one of the top prizes. And while 12 Years a Slave still took home Best Picture (deservedly so in my opinion), but Cuarón triumphed in Achievement in Direction. The fact that he directed a stand-alone sci-fi film that does not have a combined $3 billion prestige franchise behind him (like fantasy’s breakthrough win for Peter Jackson with The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King enjoyed a deacde ago) is monumental. It demonstrates a changing of the guard in Academy values.

Similarly, Spike Jonze winning his first overdue Oscar equally represents a changing of values. Jonze, a music video director of indie sensibilities, has not gone mainstream with his love story about a man who romances what is essentially an iPhone. Yet, the Academy crica 2014 found it worthwhile to award for Best Original Screenplay. Like Cuarón’s win, a shift of values in our more mainstream geek culture is indicative.

Meanwhile, some old standards remain. Lupita Nyong’o also deserved her Oscar. However, it also marked America Sweetheart Jennifer Lawerence not winning back-to-back. The Oscar “turn” base system remains in tact, and the shooting star nicknamed J. Law may have to wait longer before she enjoys the winning spotlight on the Academy stage again.

No matter what, it was a great night (even if the hosting was not) that offered a few surprises and actual competition. Love or hate the Oscars, everyone should be happy to let it go this year.
