I'm surprised that no one mentioned the way Affleck thought he was going to accept for Argo - all breathless -and was given the heave-ho at the mic by Grant Heslov. Clearly the Argo team has had enough of Affleck's ego now.

I still don't understand why Chastain had to present with Mrs. Affleck. She's not really a movie star.

by Anonymousreply 42202/25/2013

Except for the acting awards which were all presented by last year's winners as is customary, wasn't every other award presented by a duo or more?

Why should Chastain have been alone?

You and I clearly watched different Oscar telecasts, R422. In the one I watched, Heslov spoke rapturously about Affleck before turning the mic over to Ben for as much time as he wanted.

Who was the tranny sitting behind Samuel L. Jackson? Adam Lambert?

You do realize that Billy Crystal wore an earpiece and had an entire team of comedy writers including Bruce Vilanch standing ten feet away backstage providing your much admired quips, don't you?

Wow, you project more than the local multiplex.

Some of Seth jokes weren't funny. Like the Lincoln joke...it had already been done last week by Letterman and Conan.

I saw Affleck step up and then Heslov moved him aside and started speaking...I FFwd from there. It was late. In the UK, they didn't even show the closing number.

So why was he there? Woody feels that way and never goes.

And Heslov explained as Producer he wanted to thank Ben as Director first. He was snubbed of a nomination, apparently the Best Picture directed itself. So he gave him his due. Then Ben spoke as a winning Producer because he couldn't thank himself as Director. It was actually a nice thing to do.

And Heslov had to get in that HILARIOUS quip about him being a part of the trio of handsome producers.

You can be sure that everyone involved with Argo is grateful and madly in love with Ben Affleck. He will always be perceived as the force behind the success of the film, as proven by all the awards, except for the Best Direction Oscar, that he won for Argo.

As we all know now, the Oscar nomin snub probably worked in their favor in the end.

IMO Seth was great as host. He brought the goofy charm the Oscars need. And I love Shatner's line about McFarlane joining the Gay Mens Chorus in July 2015.

I thought they were supposed to have all the past actors who played James Bond present in tribute to 50 years of James Bond movies? What happened? Did I blink and miss it?

I know Tom Cruise is filming in London. Who cares about the Smiths? It's not like every A-list actor has to show up at the Oscars every year.

No, but they do seem to be famewhores R438. They are usually seen preening on the red carpet. A few years ago they were attending the opening of an envelope.

[quote]Why should Chastain have been alone?

Sometimes a nominated actor is allowed to present alone to highlight their accomplishment that year. IIRC Julianne Moore presented alone the year she was a double nominee. Cate Blanchett always presents alone. It isn't that unusual.

The only reason Mrs. Affleck was allowed to present is because she's Mrs. Affleck. Chastain was a good sport, it should have been her moment to bask in the spotlight.

I was also surprised Phoenix showed up. Woody Allen has always stuck to his guns - he thinks these awards are absurd. There's even a joke about it in Annie Hall, of all films.

Has Jess Cagle been sick? He didn't look so well the other night interviewing celebs on the red carpet.

They were approached, it was never announced. Both Oscar winner Sean Connery and Roger Moore are frail and didn't want to be dragged out to just stand there like circus monkeys, so it was scrapped.

What the fuck is with this Indian report in the backstage interview with Tarantino? He handled it well, but weird.

by Anonymousreply 44502/26/2013

It astounds me that people are criticizing him. Consider this: All of the Best Picture nominees (except "Argo") were for gloomy, gut-wrenchingly sad movies or obscure films that no one saw. The nominees were all from these downbeat movies (has there ever been a less glamorous bunch of nominated actors and actresses?)

Somehow Seth MacFarlane was supposed to turn these off-putting films and the notoriously tedious long ceremony into something entertaining that people (especially younger people) would watch. And he...did it!

Instead of celebrating his achievement everyone's going over every second of the broadcast with the suspicious determination usually reserved for purported UFO footage or the Zapruder film fishing for every possible joke that they might have forgotten to be offended about. Are as many people watching "Argo" on Amazon? How many armchair critics pre-ordered their DVD release of the elderly couple facing decline and death? How many even know how to pronounce the name of the little girl from "Beasts of the Southern Wild"-and where were the packed theaters for that movie? I don't think it even played anywhere near where I live, so the notion of a 9 year old winning best actress only added to the absurdity and irrelevance of the event.

It was due for a reality check. The "boob song?" I'm gay, but I know that every straight guy got the joke. Remember how charged up us gays were by the "8th Wonder of the World" between Michael Fassbender's legs-even George Clooney joked about it-and in "Shameless" he played a hopeless sex addict.

So some of the women who bared their breasts on film were portraying victimized characters? People take screen caps out of context., because they are out of context! I'm sure the majority of straight guys enjoyed seeing the bare breasts of movie stars as gay guys like seeing the actors who are brave enough to go "Full Monty." The truer the joke the more uncomfortable people get-that's the exact definition of satire.

And Seth MacFarlane is one of the masters of creative, zany, over-the-top-but bracingly honest pop-culture satire Hollywood has ever produced. He's like Robin Williams with sanity and smarts.

The only revolutionary difference this year is that people were already complaining about how awful the Oscars were-while they were still happening! I think the two jokes that were out of line and awkwardly unfunny: the Adele/Rex Reed joke and the Mark Wahlberg/"Jews run Hollywood" bit seemed to come from desperation at being knocked off balance by the flood of hate Tweets that began seconds into the show.

Rest assured next year Seth MacFarlane probably won't host. Who ever does will be eaten alive, the ratings will never be this high again and by the first commercial break the Twitterati will be crying out-"(blank) is the worst host ever! Why couldn't they get Seth MacFarlane again! He was great!"

by Anonymousreply 44602/26/2013

While it's a shorter list, Seth could have made some DL points with "I saw your dick, I saw your dick." All would have been forgiven.

Seth MacFarlane trolls on DL - who knew?

At least they'll shut up about South Park for a while now.

Will Amy Adams ever win an Oscar? What will it take? Should she go the Hilary Swank route and butch it way up? Should she go the Reese Witherspoon route and play a small part as a dead singer then get nominated in the lead category?

She can't go the Halle Berry route because she isn't a suffering Negro. (Or not just plain nuts.) She's not married to an antiquated and possibly stuff actor, so the CZT route is closed to her.

How about the Charlize way, play a serial killer?

by Anonymousreply 44902/27/2013

She should go half-retard, R449.

by Anonymousreply 45002/27/2013

R449, Amy Adams may be better off without the "Oscar Curse". She really does have an ideal career - alternating critic-impressing indies with franchise films, and avoiding scandal and overexposure.

Why didn't Clooney get to speak for Best Picture award. He was a producer too.
