Andrew Whitehurst - Winner: Best Visual Effects:
I'm really bad at predicting this, apparently. This is so utterly unexpected. Visual effects is massively a team game, more so maybe than any other department. And we have to thank people in two directions: we've got to thank the studio, we've got to thank the production. We've got to thank Alex for being an amazing director.

The low rating of this grand ceremony is unjustified. I heard a lot of good speeches that night (like during the last years). Speeches that many politicians or journalists around the world "forget" to tell us. Speeches about injustice in our world said with humour or not. Respect for that! Yes, there is a lot of talent in the American cinema. Of course, one could wonder why those movies are chosen and not others or why some are placed in certain categories and not others. For example, why wasn't Kate Winslet nominated as best actress in The Dressmaker? One can wonder as well why it is always the successful American animated movies which win. And I agree with the critics about the music to signal the end of the time when people do their speech. It should be made another way. Music is not the strongest side of the show... But so many good movies this year, again... and so much energy and happiness I got from watching that glamorous ceremony with all those great actors, directors and many other talented people. They make life better on this planet. Yes, I mean it. I like the Oscar ceremony every year and one of my favourite is 2012.
