    What's impressive was not just that the most important demographic tuned into watch this year's Oscars, but that it held onto almost all of that demographic for three hours plus to the end of the program! And as for Hugo, the movie, I believe if I recalled correctly, it won five Oscars, matching the movie with the most of the evening.

    What's perhaps really missing from this article is the plausibility that the true value and impact of this year's Oscars was its ability to honor the past finally in a way that the present generation can embrace in an authentic way, instead of the past contemporary generations that have kept up the buy-it-and-throw-it-away mentality. Hopefully the endearing tenet of quality brought out by this year's Oscars is to stay, not as a fad, but as part of American culture reclaimed.
