Will Jon Hamm lose AGAIN?
Will Hugh Jackman cash in his "Most Popular" chips?
Will Jennifer Lawrence rise from her sickbed?
All these questions and more will be answered on tonight's spectacular-it's all about the ACTORS tonight, people.
I like Giuliana Rancic DePandi's dress. Much better than that getup she was wearing at the Globes, but her hair tonight is the worst. What was she thinking?
Ross Matthews is really getting FAT again. The button is ready to pop on his tux any minute now.
Is E! there then? Anyone got a link to them?
Kerry Washington's dress looks like it came from the Uli Herzner collection.
I love Lady Mary's side boob.
Is Joan rivers there?
At least I spelled Jennifer Lawrence's name right. Or is that a DL thing, like "pron?"
Anyone have a link to a livestream?
Jesus Christ Helen Hunt looks like Fire Marshall Bill.
Tommy Lee Jones wins.
She looks anorexic. Yuck.
Batten down the hatches!
AnnE HAS DENTAL INSURANCE!!!
Anne!! So happy. :)
I honestly don't think Hathaway will win the Oscar.
All these awards are good and well but I don't honestly think they will give her that ultimate prize.
Is it just me, or does AnnE slightly resemble Jennifer Beals?
Well, crap. I was hoping she would rub The Flying Nun in Sally's face again.
I think her problem is she tries too hard to give a good speech instead of just speaking from her heart...
Hunt looked great- loved her dress!!
If AnnE's crazy behavior hasn't cost her the award yet, then she will be fine in February.
I think Academy members may vote for her only because they fear what she will do to herself if she doesn't win.
I think she was more sincere here than at the globes. Someone obviously told her to reign it in.
Her speeches are still too long, though.
I hate it when actors refer to "MY cast," it just sounds stuck-up.
I hated that Dallas promo.
I'm sure she was being ironically witty (and failing), but Amanda Seyfried during her red carpet interview with Giuliana dePandi came across as bitchy and ungrateful. She even said that she hopes her cast doesn't win best ensemble so that she doesn't have to walk to the stage in her dress, cuz you know, it's all about you, Amanda!
I want one of these awards. I would stick candles on the hands holding the masks.
Why did Baldwin have to win again?
I wish that I was a "ginger"
After 8 wins, shouldn't you remove yourself from the competition or something?
Ha ha stupid Tina Fey lost.
She won, R30.
I meant for ensemble cast.
So not a lot of people watching then?
Why are there two "official" threads?
R34, One has double stars - which means all the cool people will be on that thread.
This being Data Lounge, Becka from Accounts Receivable will start herding people from that thread over to this one and everyone will call her a cunt.
This thread will die down, but will regain popularity once there's a fight involving Obama and/or Hillary on the other thread.
[quote]She won, [R30].
Oh, you're right.
when does the Film Actors Guild have its show?
Yes, I am looking forward to the FAG awards.
I agree, r16.
Ann will be this year's Kate Hudson.
I believe Helen Hunt will get it, against all odds. If not that, Amy or Jacki.
BSA will be the upset category at this year's Oscars.
The SAGs have lost all credibility for nominating Nicole Kidman, anyway. She was nothing but a cartoon in Paper Boy.
I don't know, R39. Helen Hunt has screwed up her face so badly she's difficult to look at. Her work looks like it was done at a Walmart.
Nicole Kidmans face is frozen again
Helen got nominated for showing her Hunt
Terrible Boston accent
I eat shit.
The Streep troll (tm)
I really want Sally to win the Oscar at this point. Anne just comes off so fake right now, and yes maybe it is b/c she isn't just letting her speeches come, she makes some stupid joke and it falls flat. I hated that she ran over to hug Sally before she got to the stage. She knows at this point that she messed up at the GG, and here she did it again. I agree w/the earlier comment about saying "my cast," it does come off rude. I loved it when Jim Parsons made that mistake in a GG speech when he said "my writers," then realized his mistake and said "how crass" and then "the truth comes out" it was a funny moment and everybody realized his mistake. With Anne it was no mistake this time, I feel she thinks she is the star and everybody else is there to make her look good.
I love the opening "I'm an Actor" speeches each year, but Darren Criss from Glee?! WTF??? I hate it when non comedic people try to be funny and it falls flat, ala Anne Hathaway. It grates on my last nerve.
Helen Hunt's "I'm am an actor" speech was so unoriginal. It was an almost direct ripoff from Angela Lansbury's from years before.
Helen Hunt looks like a burn victim.
Helen Hunt deserves to win an Oscar this year.
She was much better, more subtle, and more affecting than that showboating mess Ann Haddaway.
And I don't care what she looks like.
Helen Hunt's atrocious, come-and-goes but never accurate Boston accent should have disqualified her from consideration, period, regardless of showing her old lady body constantly.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
