Seriously? A little robot that writes on a table beat out hundreds of giant transforming robots that trash Chicago for the Best Visual Effects Oscar? That’s insane! I thought it’d be a toss-up between Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Rise of the Planet of the Apes… never would I have figured Hugo to be a serious contender. I mean, did you see the utter destruction of Chicago, and that building being crushed by the metal drilling worm thing? That was insane!
After I saw the news, I just had to make this Optimus Prime facepalm.
I guess I’ll have to wait a bit longer before I’ll have officially worked on an Oscar-winning film.
