How many VFCC awards carried over into the Oscars? Here’s a tally.

BEST FILM
The Artist

Oh joy!

BEST ACTOR
Michael Fassbender, Shame

Fassbender wasn’t even nominated. For shame.

BEST ACTRESS
Elizabeth Olsen, Martha Marcy May Marlene

Olsen wasn’t nominated either. But we liked her. We really liked her.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christopher Plummer, Beginners

We and everyone else in the known universe agreed on this one.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Jessica Chastain, The Tree of LIfe/Take Shelter/The Help

Chastain was nominated for The Help but lost to her costar, Octavia Spencer. But Chastain will be at the Oscars again. Probably next year at the rate she’s going.

BEST DIRECTOR
Terrence Malick, The Tree of Life

The Academy basically ignored The Tree of Life. It wasn’t even nominated for Art Direction. Which is a real shame.

BEST DOCUMENTARY
Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Undefeated won. Cave wasn’t nominated.

BEST SCREENPLAY
Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist

The Descendants and Midnight in Paris won the two Oscars for screenwriting. Woody Allen didn’t show up, but Jim Rash (cowriter of The Descendants and costar of the sitcom Community) got up there and made fun of presenter Angelina Jolie’s leggy pose. He deserves a second award for that.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
A Separation

Another one everyone in the universe agreed on.

And that was it! What did you think of the Oscars this year?
