What time does the streaker come on?
Most of those I don't care about. That's why the show is so long and so boring.
So AnnE will have to wait close to two hours? Oh dear.
What did we think of the opening Magic Mike number with Seff MacFarlane, Daniel Radcliffe and Gordon Love Levitt?
I want to see Ben Affleck and his new hair
I want to see Jennifer Garner and her dimples
I want to see Jen Law and her sarcasm
I want to see Bradley Cooper and his tiny teeth
I want to see Hugh Jackman and his smile
I want to see Anne with an E and her ego
I want to see DDL and his whiskers
I want to see Sally and her field
I want to see Jessica Chastain who is she again?
I want to see Tommy Lee Jones and his scowl
I want to see Bo and his jandras
I want to see Mandesa and her feets
I want to see slobbering monkey
I want to see dinasours
All that and Stewie on the most exciting Oscars evah in the history of all mankind
James Franco waiting in the wings
I LOVE YOU R5!!
They really should do what they do with the Tonys and give the craft awards on a separate show on ABC Family.
URGENT: Anyone know where I can watch this online?? I've googled and googled and googled.
Robin Roberts looking very healthy and VERY GAY.
Don't be surprised when Ben Affleck win Best Director with the write-in votes.
Shut up, R10!
why is chenoweth there?
I also want to know where you can watch online. Anyone?
Thank you for this schedule. Now I know what times to turn the TV back on:
5:40, 7:15, and then 8:35 to the end. All that other shit I don't care about.
Chenoworth is supposed to do a musical number with McFarlane at some point in the show. Why? Don't know. She's not known as a movie actress.
You can stream the ceremony online at ABC.com and Hulu tomorrow starting at 6AM, but you can't watch it streaming online live.
Remember when Jennifer Lawrence didn't do anything except mimic Cher's performance in Moonstruck. What's the point of pretending she's a revelation in Silver Linings Playbook?
I forgot what it was like to see Reene Z. on tv.
Renee Zellweger is there! She's been found!
Oh no, Queen Latifah looks like a fluffy white cloud although her skin and make-up are divoon.
So this is it, right?
There were no *asterisks* around "OFFICIAL", so I was nervous
Thank G*D we are done with Chenoworth
Shut up, bitches! It's starting!
Bullshit, R7. Its about celebrating movies, not celebrities. These people are all instrumental in making movies work. They should all get their moment .
And why isn't Robert DOwney Jr applauding?
Luekwarm welcome for that guy but he's kind of self effacingly funny.
Iron Man no likee Seff?
Was that Jensen Ackles?
Seth is soooo fuckable!
Start off with a Ron Jeremy joke. Way to class it up.
I love Seth
Seth looks like my cousin.
How old is he?
George Clooney is embarrassing. Come out of the closet, already. It's pathetic.
Seth is bombing.
Poor Jean Dujardin didn't understand a word Seth said.
I am holding my breath for sound mixing
on FB, David Ehrenstein weighs in on George Clooney:
"George is a true phenom. A Big Star and actually smart. He's enormous fun to be around too."
Oh, jeez, he knows him??? Or lying?
So far Mcfarlane is too Hollywood insider-y for general audiences.
Seth is bombing so far.
I just looked at Halle Berry's photos on Just Jared and this is the first time I've thought she looks old. She almost looks haggard to me. The last few months must have taken a toll.
These people are humorless, R36
Thanks R16 and R17. R18, You can fuck off.
This is fucking dreadful.
Mcfarlane is laughing through his own jokes--sort of unprofessional.
He better start working blue, this is not working
Seth MacFarlane is so adorable...
Hope Seth is better than this
This is awful.
Is Seth on tape? It feels like he's in another room than the audience.
Am I insane or is he killing it?
[quote]on FB, David Ehrenstein weighs in on George Clooney:
i like seth but his opening monologue is awkward. he's a tv guy who is in over his head.
McFarlane is making me nervous.
[quote]And why isn't Robert DOwney Jr applauding?
Odd given he voiced Lois's brother on an episode.
WTF!? JOHNNY DEPP IS ON THE RED CARPET,RIGHT NOW, IN A RED DRESS. ARM IN ARM WITH KEITH RICHARDS!
I think he's engaging and low key charming. I think he's a great host.
He's telling the jokes I'd love to tell in front of an audience of Hollywood phonies.
Oh my god it's awful so far.
Shatner is thirty million years.
He's very attractive.
[quote]Mcfarlane is laughing through his own jokes--sort of unprofessional.
He may as well since nobody else is.
OMG...what is happening?
OK the boobs thing is a disaster. Holy shit.
This is Rob Lowe, Snow White bad.
Seth is painfully bad.
Wow who eyerolled?
Shatter. Look into the camera!
This is awful.
This is awesome you old farts. And the L.A. Gay Men's Chorus.
I think he's doing great!
THIS IS GREAT TELEVISION!!!!!!
Dancer Spencer Liff made it into *another* awards show opening number.
This is dreadful so far.
Why, Charlize? Why??
This is great. He's making fun of it and the audience cannot take it.
Broadway dancer Charlie Wilson is on the fucking Oscars! Is there nothing he's not in? Dude has the greatest agent that ever lived.
Samuel Jackson is taking over for TLJ in the scowling dept.
It's really funny.
Is JGL gay? Any rumors?
This is awful. Even the attendees are hiding their faces
This is beyond horrible.
He's not even trying.
Letterman, all is forgiven.
Charlize Theron is a goddess. That's how short hair is done, AnnE!!!
No, Charlize, NO!!!
OMG, the boob song pissed off Charlize.
Holy shit? Who knew Charlize Theron could dance well?
I like it so far.
Charlize can dance!
It's weird. You hear all this raucous laughter at the jokes but the audience isn't laughing.
This actually is Rob Lowe Snow White bad. The Tommy Lee Jones thing was funny for a second (also has that not been done before?)
Charlize is fucking hot though.
Wow! Great old Hollywwod Dance number
I liked the boobs song and the Chris Brown joke.
Why is William Shatner here.
OMG! It's Dancing with the Stars....with stars!!!!
Why can't they ever do a truly classy, quick, simple oscars?
Charlize and Chatum: it's working.
its classy, it's silly, this is a great show.
oh lawd...I was holding my breath that Charlize was going to get dropped on her ass....she is such an amazon...they couldnt find a more suitable dance partner ... phew... that was frightening
Am I the only one who liked the Gay Men's Chorus singing "We Saw your Boobs"?
Okay, the Channing Tatum/Charlize Theron dance was pretty good.
Haha the socks in the dryer
Now I know why Channing Tatum was there. Not bad with Charlize, she looked lovely
Those audience shots during the boob song were prerecorded.
Bunch of miserable cunts. Love Seth.
omg someone help
Flight sock puppets - great!
Oh my God.
Seth has a great voice.
FLIGHT with sock puppets? This is in such bad taste.
You people are nuts, this is a fabulous mess. So much better than Billy Crystal's Borscht Belt shit. You bitch when its boring, you bitch when its crazy.
You guys DO understand that the boobs song was pre-recorded, and the few actresses who reacted to it were doing a bit? You didn't notice they were dressed differently than they are tonight?
Geesh - this is pretty good. It's not THAT BAD for crying out loud.
Ok I laughed at the socks in the laundry twirling around in the dryer.
To make fun of the ceremony would require some actual wit.
This is just infantile crap.
I think it is funny
While I join in with your question, r100, I wouldn't have this schloclfest any other way.
This is horrible and I've always hated Seth McFarlane. They should have had Tina/Amy or Jimmy Fallon.
I really watch for the fashion and to see who wins.
We've already seen numerous "this is awful" and "Mcfarlane is great" posts.
What's example of a widely praised hosting job over the last 10 or 15 years? And, what made it good. Do people want basically someone who does nothing other than provide chatter between presenters? Or something more purposefully risky?
This opening is going on way to long.
Make it stop. Please!
Oh take the poles out of your asses. This is funny!
Charlize trained as a ballerina.
[quote]This is beyond horrible. He's not even trying. Letterman, all is forgiven.
Are you kidding!! This is 100 times more intricate and thought out than Letterman's stand up shit.
God, when are they gonna start giving out the fucking awards??
High Hopes amused me but SHATNER wtf
Audience applause suggest they're loving it.
You're all crazy. He's doing great.
R91, you're kind of a moron.
WTF is this mess. I'm turning the channel
[quote]OMG, the boob song pissed off Charlize.
Umm, Einstein, that was obviously footage from some other award show.
Do try to keep up.
The parts with the stars singing and dancing to old-fashioned songs are great.
The meta-shit with Shatner is shitty.
I would fuck every guy on stage right now (Seth MacFarlane, JGL, and Daniel Radcliffe).
Maybe this is too meta for for you all's tastes.
This is cool!
Isn't this show a tribute to movie musicals?
I like it so far.
I think it's time for me to vacuum my apartment.
OK, Sally Field indirectly shitting on AnnE in this bit is worth the price of admission.
Flying Nun thing is sort of funny and Sally's deadpan, confused/annoyed reaction.
Smokey and the bandit!!!
But why did the Boobs actresses who were there have to be pre-recorded?
TOO FUCKING LONG
and not funny
Okay, the Sally thing was great. "I have a bottle of wine and some Boniva."
Sally Field just became my personal hero.
R130, did you see the Snow White number? People clapped and hollered for that too.
Sally! Very funny and cute. Love her
This is like watching a retarded person strip and shit live on stage.
The Sally bit was a laff
Ugh...this opening makes me uncomfortable.
Okay, they're using 'Beauty and the Beast", one of my favorite films of all time.
All is forgiven, even the awful Shatner!
Love it so far
OK that not a roar from an audience that think's it's sucking.
Tina and Amy were able to keep things funny and moving along at a fast pace.
Gervais took the piss out of the whole thing with genuine humor and true bad taste.
This is just lame. Bad delivery and it's going on too long. Either shit on it or gently mock it.
I'm liking it.
17 minutes? Is this a record?
Oh ma god. When will these shenanigans end?
Let's present the awards already, goodness!
The suspense is killing me! I cant take it!
Mary! (yes, I just Mary'd myself).
The real headline should read: Seth MacFarlane hosts gayest Oscars ever
I knew it would suck; that's why I'm watching a rerun of Chopped.
Is Mary Hart doing the voiceover announcements?
He's trying to hard to be funny and hip. Not gonna happen.
Seth has a great voice--he should totally be Nathan in the next Guys & Dolls revival.
Nikke Finke is blogging that it's godawful and that Macfarlane sucks. She's right.
So they could make it "funny" R145.
And now the opening is over, thank god.
He's trying Waaaaaaay too hard
The "Khaleesi" is one lucky bitch. Love Seth.
[quote]But why did the Boobs actresses who were there have to be pre-recorded?
Wow. You're just not getting it.
Seth was watching a PLAYBACK of what hasn't happened yet.
Do try to keep up.
The opening went a little long but it was mostly funny.
Wow, Seth is bombing more than David Letterman. Hollywood is full of humorless phonies; no wonder Woody Allen hates this thing.
In Hollywood, where facelifts are routine why doesn't Tommy Lee Jones get one?
Yay! Christoph Waltz!!!!!!
HOLY SHIT! UPSET!
Wow. First upset?
Damn I wanted Philip to win
Christoph Waltz? Holy shit!
Ugh .. not WALTZ again.
2 Oscars for the same role.
OMG Christoph Waltz is a two time Oscar winner for the same role!
Waltz plays the EXACT same character in every movie.
And he just fucking won.
I fucking hate him.
Tommie Lee Jones was robbed. Just sayin'
UPSET!! He deserves it.
First surprise! Christolph! Who knew? Maybe we'll have some fun tonight.
I love CW but damn his speeches are weird.
Christoph Waltz--first surprise of the night! Did not see that coming!
Christopher Waltz: Pure Class
I liked Hoffman.
20 minutes until the first award?
Music...play him off.
Goddammit! I'm 0/1 already in my Oscar pool.
What the hell is Samuel L Jackson wearing?
I like Christoph, but every time I hear him speak, I think SS.
Quentin Tarantino looks like a monster.
Waltz is such a wonderfully humble award winner. He always come across as one of the nicest men in Hollywood.
WHAT. THE. FUCK.??!!
I love Christoph Waltz and he was the best part of Django. But, just a couple of years after another Tarantino flick?
Isn't this a MAJOR upset? Does the Academy hate Tommy Lee Jones?
This could be an interesting evening.
Nicholson looks ridiculous and insane.
I was cheering for Christoph.
Jack Nicholson but no Sally Kirkland.
Seth needs to speak faster.
Does this mean Waltz will waffle year after year? Dreary speech, yawn.....
His speeches are SO overwrought. He's not doing fucking Shakespeare in case he didn't notice.
Seth made it about himself, not movies.
OMG! Bradley Cooper looks exactly like his Mother. Scary. So sorry Mrs.Cooper!
I think I'm gonna be sick.
It's official. The show is going to suck hard.
Christoph Waltz is hot! And a surprise - he's become Tarantino's golden boy. Like Dianne Weist for Woody Allen.
Christoph Waltz is so fucking gorgeous and talented and sexy and...it's funny how he's now won Oscars for playing two completely different (yet lovable) characters...one a villain and one a hero.
haha, tarantino is already drunk, his face is soooo red! LOL
I think Tommy Lee Jones' date is Gloria Ruben who played Mary Lincoln's slave...er, servant.
Has Jack Nicholson gone blind?
The Boniva joke was so DL.
Wow. Amazing. Maybe it will be a night of favored old-timers canceling each other out and the then the favored new-comers canceling each other out for the other awards.
He's a cutie
I'm happy Waltz won!! Good for him...suck it HATERS!
"boobs"? clearly shows the Oscar are produced by middle-aged men with frat boy mentalities.
Capt Kirk, Channing Tatum, JGL and Danielle Radcliffe - my geeky/gay self just orgasmed.
But Tommy Lee Jones was robbed.
As Tarantino gets older and fleshier he looks more hideous. The faux orange skin coloring doesn't help matters.
Jack Nicholson has no fucking idea where he is or who any of these people are. " 'Quentin?' Who? What?"
Why didn't AnnE win that one???!!!
[quote]Wow. You're just not getting it.
Seth was watching a PLAYBACK of what hasn't happened yet.
Do try to keep up.
I think the opening was too complex for the average audience. I loved it and gasped in a "no he didn't" way a few times.
I think votes for DeNiro and Lee Jones probably cancelled each other out allowing Walz to sneak in. Happens sometimes.
[quote]Nikke Finke is blogging that it's godawful and that Macfarlane sucks. She's right.
Go back and read her live-blogging from the past 6 years. She has never liked an Oscar telecast, even the one with Hugh Jackman, which was well-received.
I can only hope Olivia is not there tonight. This would surely kill her.
Seth should thank God for Franco and Hathaway.
Nikki Finke isn't holding back.
"I can NOT believe the telecast has wasted 17 minutes already on this dreck. Thank god Academy President Hawk Koch can only serve a year. And AMPAS top exec Dawn Hudson should be fired immediately. Presumably thei both thought this was riveting stuff. How can everyone associated with tonight have such awful taste in material?"

Bradley Cooper's mom has total bitch face. He probably has woman issues because of her.
AnnE is shitting her pants - we're off script! Anyone could win!
Leo will self-combust tonight.
Nothing tonight is going to top CZJ being denied access to E!s mani-cam by Seacrest.
Are you people for real?
I don't watch entertainment shows and I saw none of the films, but I still knew Waltz would win because it was his name I kept hearing. And he also won every other award for his performance.
I'm liking Seth so far... I do get a little tired of Rob Ashford's same old choreography. But his butt fuck Charlie Williams (How to Succeed, Promises, Promises) is cute.
Nicholson had a big stroke, this will be a sort of reemergence for him.
[quote]Christoph Waltz is hot! And a surprise - he's become Tarantino's golden boy. Like Dianne Weist for Woody Allen.
SLP cast looked pissed. Idk. In my opinion, they often nominate mostly unremarkable supporting roles because of all the politics.
WITH WALTZ WINNING AGAIN THIS WILL BE THE ONLY UPSET FOR THE NIGHT.
PIC = ARGO
SUP ACTRESS = ANNE
ACTOR = DDL
ACTRESS = JL
Isn't Tommy Lee Jones known as being rather dismissive of other actors? He starred with Kate Blanchett, who is supposed to be a consummate professional, in The Missing and he sounded rather dismissive of her in an interview, but noted she was better than a lot of others. I'm sure this attitude doesn't sit so well with the people who vote.
[quote] I like Christoph, but every time I hear him speak, I think SS.
I totally agree. His voice makes me uncomfortable
Travolta doesn't look too bad tonight.
The opening fell flat until Shatner and the musical numbers commenced.
Seth wasn't as insufferable as he usually is.
Travolta's hair doesn't look so bad
i'm sorry but so far, i'm not impressed.
Man...Angelina Jolie sure has packed on the pounds. I guess planning a wedding must be stressful!
Boobs -- why Hollywood people were kept out of the Country Club.
Tommy Lee Jones is an asshole!
Not upset about Waltz winning.
Mcfarlane had a few funny jokes but that bit went on way too long and this bit with Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarty is also too long.
What the hell is going on?!
WTF were RUdd and McCarthy about?
When did Paul Rudd go from being an pretty good actor to being a lousy wanna be improv comedian?
This bit with McCarthy and Rudd was insufferably unfunny. They really bombed.
She's wearing a grey tent.
Quentin needs to loose weight he looks like an Ogre.
Ditto Melissa McCarthy
A Brit here - who was the frightening tiny blonde skeleton doing the the red car????
Rudd and McCarthy dragged.
Melissa M looking kinda like John Belushi as LizT.
The people who claim they are liking the show are only doing so because the men are hot.
If this was Ellen delivering this shit, she would be getting her ass ripped to shreds. So let's cut the bullshit. We can all smell a turd when we're near one.
R224 Maybe that's because there hasn't been a decent Oscar show in ages? The Jackman show was like an elementary school production of the Allan Carr Oscars.
Paperman was a cute film...although I was personally rooting for Head Over Heels.
What's the problem with the microphone.
"Bill Shatner, Seth McFarlane, the gay men's chorus of LA and a musucal number about boobs. This is epic."
George Takei liked the opening.
How long before we see if it's Sally or Anne? ZZZZZZZZZzzzzz I'm dying here. I think the highlight is going to be old Gray Poupon commercial.
Brave sucked donkey balls.
Drag queen alert
Is Quentin drunk?
Mark Andrews HUNK
Brave??!?! Lame! Worst in the category.
Okay, the AMPAS must be just giving the the fucking Best Animated award every year out of habit, because it wasn't a very good movie.
I want to be in the VIP box
Guy in the skirt will never live this down.
I'm the one who always defends the Oscars.
But this year...so far...is TERRIBLE.
Seth is worse than Letterman.
Is this the most Scottish Oscars ever?
Gross. It's "The Chin" and her tiny ass tits.
Reese is getting a big butt
Weird shadows under Reese's boobs.
Beards are really "in" these days.
Musicality: is that a real word?
So no more acting awards for another hour and twenty minutes? Yawn.
Why does Reese sound so nervous? Because of the boob song?
R225, she's the wet dream of every Broadway queen who likes cheesy talent.
r255 Ryan Seacrest?
What happened there? One minute Peanut Butter Cups is talking about Beasts of the Southern Wilde and then I'm watching AnnE.
She did it, didn't she? She did on purpose.
"probably cancelled each other out allowing Walz to sneak in. Happens sometimes."
Let's hope that happens with Anne.
So many saggy tits on young ladies with dresses which pull them down further- like Reese - IMHO
[quote]So no more acting awards for another hour and twenty minutes? Yawn
The next one- Cinematography is usually a clue for Best Picture.
I think the actresses were in on the boob song
I don't think Waltz's win should be seen as an upset. I had him marked as the winner right after I finished watching Django Unchained. He deserved the award.
Reese wasn't meant to be thin.
Occupy Jeremy Renner's Pants
As long as Anne Hathaway doesn't win, I don't care who wins.
Kill RDJ. DO it now. Now.
I detest Robert Downey's face
Samuel is wearing one of the left over suits from his Django character
WHAT THE HELL IS SAMUEL L JACKSON WEARING???
Mr. Insufferable is on now as is Fug face Renner.
The shot at Winslet and the fact that she shows those breasts in every movie made the boob song worthwhile.
How short is Mark Rufaljwhatever?
Ruffalo looks dreadfully dull clean-shaven.
OMG, now what the fuck are they doing? Jesus! I'm ready to watch old reruns on TV Land
Renner talks like he's at Fiesta Cantina.
Thought Chatlie Theron looked and danced amazing. Radcliffe was cute. Fabulous that Waltz won, as a mini-surprise.
That wasa good intro from the Avengers
10 losses for Roger Deakins!
Fabio finally get's his Oscar
OMG Bob from Twin Peaks won an Oscar.
But he's so much nicer than I remember.
I can see how Seth's humor wouldn't be everyone's cup a tea, but people need to get a fucking grip. The Oscars are treated like this venerable event that celebrates quality, but think about it...the people on stage now include 2 former hardcore drug abusers/criminals, a bisexual manwhore, and a certifiable idiot...and Mark Ruffalo.
J'adore the Chilean Queen with the silver hair!
[quote]I think the actresses were in on the boob song
I find it hard to believe that Charlize didn't know about it beforehand, and she's one of the two who was shown as "pissed off" on cam.
Who is this long haired babbling bafoon?
Weird show thusfar. Cinematographer and Avengers (some of them) included
This long-haired dude looks like Grandmama from The Addams Family.
If AnnE loses I am going to go outside my house and dance in the street naked.
Can we have the presenters speak less and the ACTUAL WINNERS speak longer?
When did Ruffalo morph into a gameshow host?
Wow, the cinematographer didn't get the memo that old crones shouldn't wear long hair.
I like his look.
They should let Sam Jackson host. He would refuse to do any "bits" and wrap the show in 2 hours.
Renner looks hot, I want him!
 sorry i am a little slow tonight-which one of those is love biscuit Renner?
LIFE OF PI.
Ang Lee is going to win Director.
[quote] Chatlie Theron
Is Barbra supposed to be performing tonight? The only reason I can think of to keep watching this train wreck.
Could Life of Pi win best picture?
[quote]How short is Mark Rufaljwhatever?
Yes, that last "-lo" is so very hard to remember.
r297 I agree that dig at Winslet was good because she deserves it
It's a sweep for Life of Pi!
[quote]OMG, now what the fuck are they doing? Jesus! I'm ready to watch old reruns on TV Land
No you're not. You may not like it, but you LOVE complaining and making comments. Be honest with yourself.
Sam Jackson is the best dressed, male or female.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Life of Pi might be winning big tonight.
I'm loving all the Life of Oi love! Beautiful movie.
Sad Wreck-It Ralph didn't win.
Christoph Waltz is not an upset. Most sites predicted him or Jones.
Lots of disappointed geeks out there, usually their favorite films only get nominated for Special Effects, and they care deeply about a minor award.
Tough shit, "Avengers" and "Hobbit"!
This show is incredibly boring.
Didnt they previously announce these boring one's at the end???
I thought Christoph Waltz should have won after watching his performance in Django too but I also thought Joaquin Phoenix should have won Best Actor for the Master but the Master sucked and Daniel Day Lewis has a lock on this.
brilliant send off
Bill Maher liked the opening.
Painful how that guy was played out.
Robert Downey Jr. is a massive piece of shit. I hope he ODs soon.
OK, the Jaws Theme play-off music was great!
Wow it's cruel to literally cut that Oscar winner off while Seth McFarlane jerked off for 17 minutes at the beginning.
Turned the mike off on that windbag. Ha-ha!
oooooh awwwwwwwwwwkward cut off.
Even Nicole Kidman managed to emote that she felt bad for that guy!
I thiught it was funny that they played Jaws to get the guy to shut up.
OK that acceptance speech was rambling but I thought the cut off was brutally rude.
I liked the beginning. Enjoyed William Shatner and the Boobs song. So far Nate Silver is 0 for 1.
Why isn't Brangelina attending
Wow, that last play-off music was pretty harsh.
It's one thing to play the winner off, another to just cut the mic. That was rude.
I'm depressed about these Oscars. What happened to real showmanship, class and humor? These people are HORRIFIC and have no dignity. William Shatner beamed down as Kirk? Charlize ballroom dancing? Seth MacFarlane preemptively admitting that he sucks, so he can laugh off the inevitable headlines tomorrow? WHAT THE HELL, this is horrible.
[quote]Is Barbra supposed to be performing tonight?
Yes. It's rumored she will be performing "No More Tears (Enough is Enough) with a hologram of Donna Summer.
Once I read that the tiger dies, I couldn't go to see The Life Of Pi. I can't stand seeing animals die. I own an animal and I worship the ground she stands on. I can cry thinking about her. She's the most perfect soul to have ever entered my life.
Look - NOTHING Seth McFarland said in the opening was untrue. Rhianna is in an abusive relationship. Kate Winslet takes her top off. Mel Gibson says the n-word a lot. What the fuck. it was great.
Yikes...I actually thought the way they played that guy off was kind of rude.
I thought Downey was just going with the joke.
Is there a best supporting actress nomination from Life of Pi? I really haven't been paying attention.
R330 Jackson looks like he went to a thrift store.
I think they should let the winners go on and get the bloated movie stars to shut the fuck up.
I hope Denzel wins Best Actor
And hope he is not present to collect it.
It was rude of the winner/windbag to go on and on when his team mates didn't have a chance to even say thank you.
This show is awful. What were they thinking?
Oh, get over it drama queens, this is a long way from horrible.
Such a bunch of miserable, humorless, old cunts!
You're seeking something that never existed. Some perfect broadcast that never existed. If DL was around when Bob Hope or Johnny Carson hosted, you'd still be bitching!
Seth is pretty funny. Get over yourselves.
[quote]Ruffalo looks dreadfully dull clean-shaven.
This! He's so hot when he's scruffy, so bland when he's cleaned up.
I just got a text from a well-placed source inside the theater and everyone's panicking. Not going well.
Too bad he was cut off, I think he was going to talk about digital artists being laid off in LA.
The tiger doesn't die, r354.
Why are they waiting so long for Best Supp. Actress??
In the past that award was always one of the first out the gate.
JC, lighten up, R352.
Aniston's dress is lovely. Too bad it's on that has been.
Charlize Theron = Attack of the 50 foot woman
Is Tatum wooden on purpose?
Waltz isn't such an upset although he should not have won. TLJ should have. Waltz won the GG and a couple of others.
Jennifer Aniston got a facelift! You can so tell....
Seth is ruining this
R349 I am pretty sure they only attend when one of them is nominated.
Let's see a wig or two!
R355 no one is saying it's untrue, but my god those jokes are fucking dated. He's like the 100th person to make those jokes.
Were there costumes in Life of Pi? I'm really getting nervous.
Is JA high? her eyes are watery
I think Seth is smart and talented but he never looks genuine.
He's always wearing a mask.
Anniston looks good, but her and Channing seem nervous/high/off.
R354 I thought the tiger lived?
[quote]I'm depressed about these Oscars. What happened to real showmanship, class and humor? These people are HORRIFIC and have no dignity.
I agree. It used to be that the Oscars were the one classy show, but now it's just trash. You may as well be watching the MTV Movie Awards.
Is Lincoln getting shut out?
I actually thought the costumes in Lincoln were very authentic.
Scottish guy here - Joy of Joys as I just found my emergency stash of Columbian Marching Powder so I am now in it for the long haul to see Hathaways disappointed face!!
I have a dark sense of humor and not the type to be uptight about things. However, this show sucks. It's not funny at all.
If he had a joke, he should have told it sooner. Seriously, you can not thank everyone and your fucking mother. It's rude to do that.
[quote]Once I read that the tiger dies, I couldn't go to see The Life Of Pi.
The tiger doesn't die. You read wrong.
If a group of people are nominated and win, then they should get extra time to speak, for ex if a solo award winner gets a minute, then a group of three should get a minute 30 sec and they can each speak for 30 secs. Why should some winners be jipped at the biggest moment of their professional lives because they won in a group?
They let the big award winners (actor/actress and picture, director) go on for minutes. Not fair to the lesser known people.
[quote]Seth is pretty funny. Get over yourselves.
Are you Seth's PR?
[quote]I find it hard to believe that Charlize didn't know about it beforehand, and she's one of the two who was shown as "pissed off" on cam.
Jesus fucking CHRIST.
They were wearing completely different outfits in the reaction shots then they're wearing tonight. And how could they have even GOTTEN a reaction shot from Theron given she was backstage waiting to dance with Tatum?
THE SHOTS WERE LIFTED FROM OTHER AWARD SHOWS.
Christ you people are stupid.
jennifer aniston looks awful. don't like what she's wearing. she got a facelift, seriously?
"Once I read that the tiger dies, I couldn't go to see The Life Of Pi. I can't stand seeing animals die. I own an animal and I worship the ground she stands on. I can cry thinking about her. She's the most perfect soul to have ever entered my life."
Gawd, I just want to slap you senseless.
The winner of best costumes showed up in a bathrobe
Haha, Jennifer Aniston can't pronounce "Jacqueline".
Was there hair and makeup in Life of Pi? I'm feeling ... I can't remember anything. Help. HELP! I DREAMED A DREAM, DIDNT I?
Channing Tatum. Yum.
Some very damaged people in this thread (looking at you, R352).
4 funny jokes so far out of how many?
Jenn's face is beginning it's journey into old age. She may have to think about giving up those ingenue roles in the next few years.
Thank God. Back on track. Mo-MENTUM!
channing is so hot.
Who the fuck invited the homeless chicks? They look like trash.
A well-placed source tells me things are not going well.
"I just got a text from a well-placed source inside the theater and everyone's panicking. Not going well."
What are they panicking about?
Dont these two have a cooking show?
What r365 said.
It's a fucking show--try to have some fun you sour, boring, humorless, Chicken Littles. Jesus.
I have heard many times that Jack Nicholson has dementia. Maybe early stages?
Is Seth McFarlane gay?
"Didnt they previously announce these boring one's at the end"
It used to be in the middle, then the March of the Death. That way, death seemed like a relief.
I love this freakish makeup winner in her hideous fuchsia tights!
Brit Fraus are cleaning up.
Every time they play the Les Mis music I involuntarily sing along.
You and your pal r365 are really bringing your own special kind of cheer to this thread, r410.
Halle channels Sheena Easton.
That makeup lady winner looks like Estelle Parsons.
I still hate Halle's dress.
Well there's one for Les Miz
And now Bond--Bassey!
Halle looks absolutely fabulous
Why are some cunts getting mad that others are trashing the show? This is what we do every year.
R354, stop drinking.
At least the "fraus" know how to share a mike. Braggy men are hogging it.
Halle does not age!
Don't like her outfit though
Seth is hot. I said it.
They should have had Mike Meyers and Liz Hurley introduce the Bond segment.
With her dress and mega-bitch personality, Halle Berry would make a decent Aunty Entity in a Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome remake.
Is it time for Dame Shirley yet?
I like Halle's dress, but I'm sooo sick of her spiky short hairdo. It's a great cut, but she's worn it forever. Though, what other cut would work? At least she's not rocking extensions/wigs.
Aniston gained a few pounds and it suits her.
Agree with the poster upthread re: tired jokes.
As mean as Ricky Gervais was at the Globes, at least you didn't know where he was going.
Personally, I found Gervais funny, but I could see why people wouldn't.
This is just lame.
This show is sooo boring.
Haha, Jennifer Aniston can't pronounce 'Jacqueline.'"
Very few can.
I contend that I'm not stupid, R394. I'm doing a research paper while simultaneously watching. I could easily assume you're a pop-culture obsessed fascist who is, therefore, quite stupid indeed. Or maybe I should say QUITE STUPID INDEED.
Halle Berry's gown is gorgeous.
If I wasn't a nominee or a presenter I would be at the Vanity Fair venue just now, watching it on TV and comforting myself with Dom Perignon
Seth is doing fine. Some of you seem to equate being a miserable desiccated cunt with being witty. They are not the same.
Seth is hot! He's tubby but not too tubby that he's chubby.
r411, yes. There were numerous blinds about an aging A lister with dementia. The leading guesses were Nicholson and Voight (Beatty was also mentioned).
Some old black chick!
Gold - finGAH!
Oh, dear... sounds like a slight key problem.
Oh my fucking Christ! Shirley Bassey? This night just redeemed itself in those queen's eyes!
Now there's something worthy of all caps.
Bow down, bitches it's Shirley Bassey!
Ladies and gents...
Shirley. Fucking. Bassey.
This show is such a snore I'm actually catching up on emails while I watch just to break the boredom.
Jesus, she looks good. How old is she now?
Shirley Basseys perfòrmance is very anti climatic
Ironic R440, that's Seth's entire act.
And don't call me Shirley
fuck you, r354 . haven't seen it yet.
Her voice is not sounding great.
Bassey still sounds great and looks great. Real classy.
Shirley's voice is gone, but God love her she's selling it anyway.
That's what a true diva does!
At least this old woman is wearing sleeves.
R 432 make up your mind already!
Shirley is not a vocalist anymore.
i like how the stage and lights look. can't wait for babs!
God bless her, she cant really sing it anymore can she?
[quote]I like Halle's dress, but I'm sooo sick of her spiky short hairdo. It's a great cut, but she's worn it forever.
I agree - it looks so dated and 90's. She really needs to grow it out and try something different.
Shirley looks & sounds amazing! "Gooolllllddddd!"
The introduction of Bassey and her just starting to sing when it seemed she was going to speak, seemed awkward.
Oh thank fucking God for Dame Shirley.
There you go, decrepit queens.
Go Shirley! Sing your song!
Goddamn SHIRLEY BASSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!
Loving Shirley Bassey. This is why live singing is great, and autotune, prerecorded tracks suck. It may not be technically perfect (at least those first few seconds), but it's "real," it has character, there's connection between the voice and the person. And, she killed it. It got better and better. Amazing!
When is Adele singing?
Oh he'll, I can feel a flu coming on...can watching the Oscars actually make you sick?
OK, SB was pretty fantastic. Thank God these rubes stood up for her.
Fuck Jack Nicholson to hell. That pedophile deserves to be under the jail. I hope the underage girl fucker does have dementia. We all know Jack only fancies women 12 and under just like his tagteam/gangbang buddy Roman Polanski.
I'd rather hear Sheena Easton perform her Bond song.
r457's comment is the first laugh I've had since the show started!
Bassey was the true whore of Gomorrah back in the day, here she is, how fabulous is that?
adele should have waddled on and taken over
Dame Shirley is 76, bitches! She looks and sounds great for 76.
I think she sounded damn good for 77 years old.
Exactly, r461. Best moment of the night.
The last time I saw anyone own the Oscar stage like Bassey just did was when Sophia Loren helped present the Best Actress award in that group thing they did a few years back.
AnnE's segment coming up.
There's a bit of Dietrich in her later years creeping in on Dame Shirley but she is still amazing.
She should have lip-synched
I think she just turned 77.
Funny that so many Brits have been given honors and Dame Shirley keeping the Welsh flag flying!
Of course the ancient Queens are wet over Shirley Bassey... she's as close to Helen Lawson as they're ever gonna get.
Halle dress designed by Donatella on the week she went cold turkey
She doesn't look a day over 76.
Dame Shirley Basey was incredibly fabulous. Fabulously wonderful. And so on.
Best moments of the night so far.
Pretty Girls! Beware
It took her a long time to get to the mic and she was a little wobbly on the first few notes, but she pulled it all together in the end. She looked great too.
Well done, Dame Shirley.
[quote] I like Halle's dress, but I'm sooo sick of her spiky short hairdo. It's a great cut, but she's worn it forever.
I agree - it looks so dated and 90's. She really needs to grow it out and try something different.
WRONG!! Halle looks better than any woman I've seen with this haircut. SHe looks BEYOND amazing.
Glad she is not wearing wigs or extensions like so many of these beautiful Black girls mistakenly do.
Vidal Sa- Soon
The Academy Awards are a classy awards show and the number one awards show in the world. If you want to sing a boob song or do stupid jokes, do it on the MTV movie awards show not here.
Kerry looks oddly skeletal.
Why does Seth McF. move around so much?
Nothing but a classic black tux looks appropriate at the Oscars, Jamie Foxx.
Kerry Wash. needs to be locked in a room for two months and fed pizza and chicken wings
Kerry Washington's dress is nice.
I like MacFarlane when he's announcing the presenters, but not the schtick.
That was horrible. Did he write his own stuff, or do they make him use the writers?
Kerry Washington is thin and pretty, but she CAN'T DRESS FOR SHIT. I've never seen her in a dress that didn't make her look like a blind prostitute.
Jamie Foxx annoys me.
This guy is really adorable.
AnnE and her E getting ready for her award
I fuckin want to be in the theatre box
I hope Ang Lee pulls an upset.
I hope J Law wins.
I hope Amy Adams pulls an upset.
Perks of Being A Wallflower should be nominated for Adapted Screenplay!
Kerry needs to eat and lay off the botox, fillers and fake hair. She looks cancer thin
Kerry Washington has the voice of a bitchy high school student.
Kerry Washington is wearing a prom dress from JC Penney
That Inocente short film doc was interesting. It's about a homeless teen artist. Good for her.
The Oscars are so "classy" they gave an Academy Award to "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp."
I agree R508
The Academy Awards are not classy. Bob Hope used to do sex jokes. Decades of women have shown up with their tits hanging out. Best Song winners have included shit like "It's Hard Out There for a Pimp." Quit acting like this telecast has been the epitome of class when it hasn't.
I like this woman's weird white dress with the black stripey things on it.
These documentary nominees are always about such traumatic subjects. Has a documentary about something happy ever won?
Wow. My very nice high school classmate Bryan Buckley was supposedly a shoe-in for his short film ASAD. He didn't win. I'm sort of crushed, it would have brought a lot of joy to our little hometown in Massachusetts.
Well the guy who did win seemed very sweet, good for him.
Gays, I am SO SORRY you have to go through all this boring stuff before you see my win.......
anne h. - did i mention I have a gay brother?
Seth should've gone for a Natasha Richardson joke. Pussy.
Liam Neeson is aging very nicely. Still handsome into his 60s.
Is Liam going to suddendly wrestle a wolf on stage? please please please
WORST OSCARS EVER!
Per Nikki Finke:
OK, here’s what really happened with this tribute to 50 years of James Bond films. Besides the fact it looks like it was edited with a blunt meat cleaver. The Academy and the show’s producers hoped to gather together all the living 007 actors. But Sean Connery refused to come because he hates the Broccoli family. Something about how he thinks they cheated him out of money he was owed. Then Pierce Brosnan refused to come because he hates the Broccoli family as well. Something about how he thinks they pulled him from the role too early. Roger Moore was dying to come because, well, he’s a sweetheart. And Daniel Craig would have come because he does what he’s told by the Broccoli family’s Eon Productions whose Bond #23 Skyfall just went through the box office global roof. So there you have it.
[quote]Kerry Washington has the voice of a bitchy high school student.
LMAO...she *did* go to Spence...just like the beloved Gwyneth Paltrow.
Documentary is next. It's Searching for Sugarman's to lose I think. Is RODRIGUEZ there?
The Anne H. jokes are funny every time, and have not become at all tired.
Just hearing DDL's voice as Lincoln reminds me yet again of how great he was.
He really deserves this 3-time win.
Did those two winners bring their dates on the stage? Their was two names, two awards and yet there was four on the stage. How tacky!
How can makeup and hairstyles be in one category?
Lincoln was shot.
Sally Field looks good in red.
Was George Lazenby available and alive?
I agree, R533. I really hope Day Lewis takes this one. It was a memorable performance.
Ok, he calls out Ben Affleck for Gigli...then sucks up to him.
[quote]Their was two names,
Oh dear oh dear.
Please welcome Ben Affleck
Did Affleck just make a bitch slap? I missed it but I got a sense of attitude in his voice.
Ben Affleck's hairpiece is looking good. But it even looks like he's wearing a fake beard too.
An assisination joke about Lincoln on DL?
Bring it on.
On the Oscars? That's going to far for this fuddy-duddy.
Wow. Affleck just super-dissed McFarlane, for real.
HUH!? A Lincoln Assasination joke? Really? I laugh at everything, but that shit ain't funny at all. It's tasteless and juvenile and nasty. McFarlane deserved those boos!
OMG Ben A is just so hot.
[quote]Did those two winners bring their dates on the stage? Their was two names, two awards and yet there was four on the stage. How tacky!
they all made the doc even though the award went to the directors. The Latina girl is the homeless subject of the doc.
I was expecting all the 007s on stage. That was a pathetic excuse for a tribute.
Mmmmm....what nationality is the guy with the thick WEIRD accent?
R529, how about George Lazenby? Everyone always forgets about him.
"How to Survive a Plague" didn't win! I'm really shocked, and saddened.
But the skinny weird guy is hot.
Yes R543, the "acclaim" has gone to his head.
Ben Affleck was PISSED!
[quote]Did Affleck just make a bitch slap? I missed it but I got a sense of attitude in his voice.
Honey, we're going to be paying for YEARS because this bitch didn't get nominated for director.
South African accents are so weird--they sound like a weird cross of English and Dutch (which is understandable) but also Australian (which is not).
Having people coming up behind the winners to get them off the stage is supremely tacky.
What the fuck is Willow Bay doing there?
Ben Affleck looks like he wants to beat up MacFarlane.
That Jaws music is still pissing me off.
I know by the time they need it the speaker is going on but generally they're going on quite sincerely, if boringly. There's got to be a politer way.
The only thing that can save this mess would be a backstage brawl between Seth and Ben Affleck.
Bottom line: The Oscars is a TV show. I've been there. its like a game show with movie stars. nothing more. acting like its a nobel prize ceremony is laughable. its been an entertaining tv show, which is exactly what its supposed to be.
The assassination joke was just a set-up to do the "Too soon?" line.
Yeah, it fell flat. Up until now, I think he's been really good.
What did Ben say/mean?
Coming on time for a second thread with a good link-back. Anyone...
We've got a few minutes.
Looking FOr Sugar Man was expected to win, supposed to be amazing. Most said the clear runner up, but still a definite runner up, was How To Survive...
Finke of DH claims Seth IS the worst Oscar host ever, but she's being ridiculous. Nothing could be worse than Franco-Hathaway. Nothing.
Ben Afflecks is not happy!
[quote]What the fuck is Willow Bay doing there?
You got me! I hate it when these LOSER nobodies appear elbow their way into these things with those of us who truly belong!
It upsets me so much, I can't even breathe...
They should have brought out most of the people responsible for the Bond songs at least.
A medley and capping it off with Adele doing her song.
That was lame. They shouldn't have made such a big deal about the tribute if it was going to be half-assed.
Wouldn't the producers know ahead of time if they could get them all there? Why bother otherwise.
Shirley Bassey was even better than she was in Hazel.
"Make them let me present, Ben. Make them!"
Cinema Paradiso is one of my favorite melodies.
Garner and Chastain's dresses complement each other.
Jennifer Garner seems learning impaired.
I thought you were supposed to be good-looking to get into pictures.
Jennifer Garner looks like all she does these days is eat and pop out babies.
