Haaaaaaaate the Original Screenplay win. How did the Master lose that. Also glad the with the camera work of all time won even if it was predictable. Surprised that McConaughey lost and we basically ignored his renaissance bc he could've been triple nominated in '13, and double nominated in '12 and probably should've won twice. Also that makes three wins for Leo which surprises me especially from this board.
I kinda wish I voted PSH to try to make that a tie. Pendragon how close was that race. Thanks as always for doing this!!!

Posting as I check the results...immediate reactions only.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role...Sometimes dreams do come true. Love it and love her.
Best Achievement in Costume Design...Obvious choice is obvious, and correct. This is all-time stuff.
What a start we are having here folks.
Best Achievement in Production Design... The only nominee I haven't seen here, but damn guys, if it's superior to Anna K, it must be a bloody miracle of design.
Best Achievement in Makeup and Hair-Styling...Damn you all, I had only a handful of nominated films I hadn't seen this time, and two wins so far for one of them...adds Cloud Atlas to watch list.
Best Achievement in Composing an Original Score...Over Beasts...
Best Achievement in Composing an Original Song...Well, the song I like the best won the category I couldn't give a shit about. It still isn't going to make me care.
Best Achievement in Visual Effects...I don't actually remember which I picked, but this is a fine winner anyway.
Best Achievement in Film Editing...I think I voted for Zero Dark Thirty, so I'm good with this. The Master was a fine job here too...tidy result.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role... Just no!
Best Achievement in Sound Mixing...Good pick.
Best Achievement in Sound Editing...Damn fine pick.
Best Ensemble Cast...I love this film, but it was the weakest of the bloody nominees .
Best Achievement in Stunt, Fight or Dance Choreography...I don't believe in the lord, but praise him anyway. MAR!!!
Best Achievement in Cinematography...I don't love The Master like most of you, but damn if it wasn't great in this regard, and from those nominees, I just hope it won in a landslide.
Best Achievement in Writing an Adapted Screenplay...Meh, but then the competition was pretty meh, so does that make it the best possible outcome....
Best Achievement in Writing an Original Screenplay... Whatever! Not with Seven Psychopaths & Moonrise Kingdom in the line up.
Best Achievement in Directing...No thank you very much. I'd only rank him 4th of six whose work I've seen.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Lead Role... Just No! The worst thing is, she probably won't win in 2010 when she debatedly deserves it.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Lead Role...It should have been Denis Lavant, but wacky is my second choice and what an incredible second choice he is.
Best Motion Picture of the Year...This film just didn't hit with me outside of the 'it was very good, but I'll probably never watch it again' range. If I do ever watch it again it'll be for wack and the hoff.
So, how to sum up. I guess it's a shame that my favourite set of nominees so far lead to my least favourite set of winners so far. It's weird, I love Django and The Master is very good, but I just can't get on board with almost all the wins they got between them. The wins for The Raid, Anne H and Anna K kinda saved this for me a bit, but not enough.

Just realized that I think I completely missed voting in the second round for this or even looking at the Nominations. So reactions for all:
-- Glad Temple made it in Supp. Actress - so so good. Shame Hathaway won, but not surprised. Never got the love for her in that at all.
-- Glad Cloud Atlas in general got a love in the nominations.
-- Happy Cloud Atlas and Beasts' scores are still as loved, shame neither won though. Love Greenwood but felt his Master score was pretty meh.
-- Shame that out of the four songs from the Django soundtrack, "Freedom" is the one that got picked. Was my least favorite of the four. Glad the Ted song got nominated though, it's my favorite of the bunch.
-- That Supp. Actor line-up is pretty great, even Jones who was the only good part of that movie. Glad McConaughey made it. Assume PSH went co-lead (though it's funny he did but not Waltz as I have their categories switched). Remember I got a ton of flack when we ran the ICCs forever ago because there were so many split votes in categories and a lot of the ones that would have boosted the Lead line-up went supporting - hence Adrien Brody. All hell broke loose I guess lol.
-- So glad Berberian Sound Studio got nominated in Sound, but it should have been for both and won both. Favorite use of sound ever, probably.
-- Can't believe Cloud Atlas got so much love but couldn't even get a Cinematography nod. Images from that film are seared into my mind in such a fantastic way, Lincoln is utterly forgettable. Don't get it.
-- Dislike both of those screenplay winners. Don't understand the love for Lincoln.
-- So cool Carax got a nod.
-- Happy Cotillard and Winstead got nods in Actress. Not even mad Lawrence won (though I have her supporting as my win).
-- Happy Neeson made it in Actor. His best performance, IMO.
Solid overall, though the Lincoln love will forever be baffling to me. A few techs and Jones aside, it's one of the blandest films I've ever watched and DDL does his usual overacting IMO. But the Cloud Atlas and Killer Joe love makes up for it for sure.
