Why do some people despise the Academy Awards so much? Is it political? Is it jealousy?

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2902/24/2013

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).

by Anonymousreply 3002/24/2013

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!

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.

by Anonymousreply 3402/24/2013

Meryl Oscar day, everybody!

DL is waiting with bated breath for my predicions, and HERE THEY ARE!

Best Picture: Amour.

Director: Spielberg.

Actor: DDL.

Actress: Riva.

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!

by Anonymousreply 3602/24/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3702/24/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3802/24/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4202/24/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4302/24/2013

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.

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 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.

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.
