The Big List of 2012 Oscar Winners


Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy at the 84th Academy AwardsIn case you were too busy doing laundry or watching the NBA All-Star game (where Kevin Durant took the night’s MVP honors, by the way (Hook’em!)), Hollywood also held their Oscars (aka the 84th Annual Academy Awards) on Sunday.

For those of you who didn’t bother to partake in the snooze fest that was The Oscars, but still likes to keep up with the going-ons of Hollywood’s most important shindig of this and every year’s Suck-Up Season, here is your big list of winners from last night’s gathering.

    Least memorable night ever. Except the cast of Bridesmaids on stage, that shit was gold. I watched this nonsense last night and already had to google who won anything.

    • Dedpool

      Yeah I skipped it.

      • Brent McKnight

        I had a couple hours to kill until the Walking Dead. And Chris Rock was funny for a second.

  • LionHeart

    Artist wins everything. Show of hands: who’s surprised?

    • Tin Hoang

      Show of hands, who actually saw this movie? Not me.

  • Brent McKnight

    I have some lingering Kevin Durant bitterness. Guess who what city he got drafted to? Guess what city got subsequently Major League-d in a big way?

    • Nix

      Ugh, don’t remind me. The fact that KD is playing in the State of Oklahoma for a bunch of Okies pains me to no end.
