Does anyone know of a site that will be live streaming this? I only do Netflix these days but don't want to miss this!
[quote]Gays, help me choose my gown! The stylist sent over so many. I'm overwhelmed.
R8, now don't you think her son will be picking out the outfit?
Would love to see Hugh Jackman take it over Day-Lewis. I hate it when it's pre-ordained. I saw his act at Disneyland thirty years ago.
R18, Day-Lewis had an act at Disneyland?

I hate Oscar Day now because it reminds me of before, when it was fun and filled with anticipation and parties.
Why thank you R20 - R21 .
This is appreciated.
I don't care who wins. I'll tune in to see Barbra hopefully not make a ass out of herself. Also Shirley and Adel, who won't.
Ready, Seth, Go?
For the presenter, I bet they ask Channing Tatum to present "best costumes". Because he was in that stiptease movie. Or maybe not.
Can't wait to see the James Bond segment. And to hear Adele. If Skyfall doesn't win best song ... well, it will win.
"I hate Oscar Day now because it reminds me of before, when it was fun and filled with anticipation and parties."
R22, what's it filled with now, and why is it no longer filled with anticipation and parties?
As long as Emmanuelle Riva and/or Christoph Waltz win, I don't care if Anne Hathaway tries to sing over the orchestra attempting to play her off if she beats Sally Field.
I hope Ang Lee win Best Director! He is the most deserving of the bunch.
r27, I'm not r22, but for me it was getting older and discovering just how political and bought the Oscars are. Yes, they always have been, but it's so much more so now than then. And with the emergence of the internet and the proliferation of precursor awards, the suspense has largely been taken out of the equation.
Having said that, this year is different in that there are several categories where there is no clear favorite: Best Director and Best Supporting Actor could go any way, and even Best Actress is a three-way race between Lawrence, Riva and Chastain (hoping and praying that Riva wins).
Yeah -- the whole "Shakespeare in Love" debacle ended it for me, but the last year I truly enjoyed was 1994.
r31, funny regarding the hate for "Shakespeare in Love." It was neck and neck between "Shakespeare" and "Saving Private Ryan" all night; at my Oscar party, when Harrison Ford opened the envelope and announced "Shakespeare in Love," the whole crowd at my party erupted in cheers!
r30, and I still think "Shakespeare" is one of the better Best Picture winners
And to you too OP!
Can we dare hope for just one red carpet thread and then one clear winner as the "official" thread for the actual ceremonies, followed by one clear continuation thread after the first one hits the max?
Nah, I thought not. Just part of the fun of Oscar Day on DL.
Looking forward to DataLounge blowing up my laptop when Miss Barbra Streisand sings and/or should Miss Sally Field pick up her well-deserved trophy
Shakespeare in Love was a fine choice over Saving Private Ryan.
Crash winning over Brokeback Mountain was the one who broke me.
Meryl Oscar day, everybody!
DL is waiting with bated breath for my predicions, and HERE THEY ARE!
Best Picture: Amour.
Supp. actor: Waltz.
Supp. actress: Ann, unfortunately. I still hope I'm wrong.
Original screenplay: Amour.
Adapted screenplay: Lincoln.
Foreign language film: Amour.
Oh, and GO HELEN HUNT/AMY ADAMS/JACKI WEAVER !!!
Please save us from the horror of Ann winning that Oscar. We will never hear the end of it if she does indeed win.
Ann needs to be stopped!
Streep Troll, no way are they giving Best Picture to Amour. It's gonna be Argo.
I pray to the Oscar Gods and Goddesses that you are right about Riva.
Would LOVE to see Sally defeat AnnE. Please.
Streep troll's predictions are truly off the mark.
In saying that, as much as I liked Argo, it is just a small well made political thriller. It has a bit of a 70s aesthetic but compare it to Lumet's films from back then.
You don't know that, r37. By now everybody is wondering why the mediocrity that is Argo has won all these precurose awards; they've rightfully concluded it is to spite the Academy's choice of excluding Affleck from a best director nom.
No way do Oscar voters want to be part of bashing their own institution.
Argo fatigue has set in. Amour, meanwhile, has been building up momentum; its visceral truth and power is too hard to ignore for the Academy.
I predict BP for Amour.
Thanks, r21!!!!! 😊
Shakespeare In Love and Paltrow were the WORSE Oscar winners.
Oscars: LAPD plans heavy security; Hollywood streets shut down
February 24, 2013 | 10:40 am
The Los Angeles Police Department will be on high alert during the Academy Awards, and numerous streets around the show's Hollywood venue will be closed Sunday.
The LAPD has not released any details of its security plans. A law enforcement source told The Times Sunday that security will be heavy but that there are no extra precautions being taken this year. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the security measures were ongoing.
The Oscars are being held Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Typically, the LAPD has snipers with 50-caliber rifle on roofs and a robotic forklift known as "Batcat" capable of lifting a bomb-filled truck. Even the way the limousines enter the area has been designed to slow their passage by forcing them to weave around concrete barriers.
Several hundred officers in uniform will staff checkpoints and road blocks while a couple hundred are working as private security, donning tuxedos to provide personal and red-carpet protection.
Hollywood Boulevard was to be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive starting at 10 a.m. Sunday. Public buses were to be rerouted, according to the Oscars' website.
Additionally, the Highland Avenue offramps from the 101 Freeway will close.
R35...I like you, but I disagree with most of your picks. I would like any film, but Argo to win. Just not in the mood to see Ben Afflecks huge ego on the stage.
Predicting the winners is easy. Let's see if you can predict who in Hollywood at this very moment is:
* Sucking down Jack Daniels from a flask
* Taking a handful of "prescription" drugs
* Doing a couple lines of coke
* Shooting heroin
* Smoking crystal meth
While you can answer Lindsay Lohan for each of these and be correct, you will lose points for creativity.
If AnnE loses I don't care who else wins. If Riva and Haneke win then I'm OK with AnnE. But I'd really love to see Sally Field up there.
Streep Loon are those predictions (you can't be serious) or what you want?
Nah! I bet it has fine ratings.
Now I'm out for blood and want upsets! C'mon Oscars! No Anne, Argo, or Lawrence!!
Saving Private Ryan losing the Oscar hit harder than Brokeback Mountain losing to Crash. Ughh! What bitter night that was.
can we have a red carpet thread please?
Fuck the Oscars! I'm watching the fucking "Walking Dead"!
Catherine Zeta-Jones is singing "All That Jazz"
Jennifer Hudson is singing "And I Am Telling You..."
Anne Hathaway "I Dreamed a Dream"
Hugh Jackman "Suddenly"
A huge Les Miz chorus will sing
Shirley Bassey sings "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds Are Forever"
Kristen Chenoweth is singing a duet with Seth McFarlane
And Barbra Streisand is doing something special.
I doubt there will be upsets. Same old, same old.
This looks to be an incredibly BORING awards show.
This is going to be the best Oscars ever.
No way are they gonna give a bunch of awards to the Frenchies again this year.
The only reason I watch the Oscars is hope for a wardrobe malfunction. That would be great if Kathryn Bigelow's top came undone or Ben Affleck cock slips out of his barn door. Can we have this happen? Please??
I hope Anne Hathaway's mother has a psychotic break when her daughter's name is announced, and she rushes the stage (while Anne looks on in horror). After all, SHE played Fantine in a national tour of Les Miserables in the early 90s!
I hope this is going to be a night of upsets and outrage.
I hope Hathaway wins, just to piss off the Datalounge AnnE-Haters!
You bitches have really pissed me off.
I understand those feelings, R58.
Streep Troll, "bated"? You're bating to Meryl photos and films now?
What was the "Shakespeare in Love" debacle?
Hope Jennifer Lawrence wins, but I'm thinking it will be Riva or Chastain. I'm good with Riva, because she's my second fave but I don't think Chastain deserves it.
Also, still foolishly hoping for an Amy Adams upset.
I really like AnnE, think she's very talented and would have nominated her for Brokeback. BUT, she has had an awards season that has damaged her public image, IMO. She will win someday, so i hope she has to eat it this year to learn some humility.
If Amy Adams wins, she'll be chased out of the theater with pitchforks (and accusations of vote tampering!).
Also, from before, I don't recall the entertainment journalists acting like they were part of the awards.
They just covered them.
Also, I liked when the red carpet was just one place where they stopped after Army Archerd introduced them and not bejeweled local journalists ambushing them every two steps.
Anne has been a lot more humble than Lawrence has been.
If anyone needs to learn humility, it is her.
OMG! Amy Adams dress looks like a wedding dress that was washed with the groom's black socks. It's not even a nice, soft dove grey, but an ugly dishwater grey!
Streep Loon's picks are like all the rest of his droppings - off the mark. He's now the AMOUR loon, too, and he has to be insane to think it will win Best Pic.
Can't believe they're doing ANOTHER 15 minute opening number. Did they learn nothing from Allen Carr's mess?
R69 is delusional.
No R73, you're delusional.
Anne's only crime is wanting an award too much. Lawrence bombed with two ill timed jokes that were more obnoxious than funny. And when she could have apologized for making the Streep comment, she instead gets an attitude because everyone is supposed to know her favorite films and quotes by heart.
Goop the second. Watch.
R62, "bated" is the correct spelling in that usage.
Is anyone using the Oscar app?
I actually agree with R69/r74. JLaw's pulled ahead in the insufferable stakes the past few weeks. Anne's actually reined it in a bit.
Streep Troll got 4 out of 9 correct. YOU SUCK!
DL was locked down for primetime all day Oscar day. This place is pissing me off.

Then spend the measly $18, you fucking cheap ass.
r80 gets a check every month from his mother.

I love how the Streep Troll thinks she knows what the Academy is thinking. And then she's always wrong.
