Link(s) of the week:

Deadline’s Pete Hammond gave his opinions on how the Oscars went down, and sympathizes for host Seth MacFarlane. I agree with Pete’s assessment that we seem to be too sensitive nowadays when it comes to our sense of humor, but I know there are others on staff who feel MacFarlane went too far. Where do you stand?

In Contention’s Gregory Ellwood (and others) summed up the best and worst of the 85th Academy Awards ceremony.

Awards Daily’s Sasha Stone gives a somewhat exhausted sounding goodbye to the 2012 movie/awards season.

The LA Times’ Kenneth Turan explains why Ang Lee was a worthy winner for Best Director, but not in comparison to Steven Spielberg. I agree wholeheartedly. But if not Spielberg, I’m glad it was Lee.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg tells us what really happened at the Oscars.

Screen Rant’s Anthony Taormina ranks the nine movies he is most looking forward to in March.

Melena Ryzik at The New York Times’ Carpetbagger puts a wrap on the entire 2012 Awards Season.

Rops of Silicon’s Brad Brevet wants to know what the expectations are for the new Tom Cruise film, Oblivion.

Around the Circuit

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Lost, Homeland, Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
