Oscars Live Blog:
7:28 ugh what time is it? anyhoo, hopes:
that TKS doesn’t sweep though Desplat should finally get his Oscar
that Deakins gets his Oscar too
that Kidman pulls an upset
that BP/BD splits with TKS/TSN
or willingly, that TSN wins BP
can’t think of any more right now.
7:35 oh velvet, so many commercials. Hailee Steinfeld is so cute
8:02 yeah, nothing’s really happening. brb, trying to finish some scripts
8:11 lol, Jesse Eisenberg is ~precious~
8:24 now I’d want to watch a show about that choir. more heart, less autotune.
8:31 Cate Blanchett is a goddess. (i’ve been overusing that word. lol) beautiful dress but not liking that yellow stripe)
also, I forgot about Being Human. brb, downloading.
8:33 mom montage. Matthew Libatique’s mom is sooo Filipino.
8:35 NICOOOOOOLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! my other goddess has arrived<33333
8:37 also, aren’t you supposed to see everything first and live on these shows? I’m seeing more things in the internet. what the hell, red carpet show, you’re doing it wrong.
8:52 not so sure about Nicole’s dress. it looks bad in pictures. I wish she’d worn something colorful and stop washing herself out.
colors of the night: red and silver
9:00 just gave in and opened a bag of cheetos. oh show, when will you start?
9:05 30 mins more y’all. love natalie’s earrings and i just did something weird to my computer screen. come back taskbar!
9:11 all these red carpet interviews have been awkward. and james franco seems tired. dude, the show hasn’t even started yet
9:12 is Nicole’s hair getting lighter again? I hope its for a role. Gwyneth looks so flat
9:20 the dresses seem so blah this year.
michelle williams is rooting for the king’s speech? nooooo i refuse to believe it.
9:25 i love that they’re shooting inside the kodak theater now. gorgeous!
9:33 darn it velvet, you cut the first few moments of the montage!
love that they’re using tsn’s score.
9:37 anne hathaway is too cute
9:42 this opening is kinda slow
9:45 ugh i don’t care how much they hate it, i love montages. that scenic transition is just gorg
predix (will/should/want/spoiler): tks/tks/inception/inception
winner: alice in wonderland
winner: pfister, inception
oh too bad for deakins. that’s 0/9 now. he’s got to get it someday :/
okay, love how they want to recapture old hollywood but that’s just hard to understand.
bet they run out of time again and the best actor/actress clips get cut. /unfair
hahaha. this is funny but stop wasting time
so does that mean no upsets tonight? oh well.
SHE JUST SWORE! LOL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT LIVE TELECAST
predix: ts3/ts3/illusionist of httyd/ts3 (is there any point to this?)
winner: toy story 3 (yes totally writing that now)
lol, justin you are not banksy
honestly, those transitions are beautiful.
so I love that they didn’t chase Melissa Leo away with that dreaded music but they’re doing it to the “smaller” winners. unfair oscars is unfair. yep, toys story.
hopefully though, this is the last year of pixar’s reign thanks to next year’s cars 2. ugh.
10:14 velvet don’t you dare delay the telecast again because of commercials.
okay, too much white Brolin and Bardem
much prefer how they presented screenplay last year
BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
predix: Sorkin/Sorkin/Sorkin/ uh, ts3?
winner: The Social Network. yay!
lol, Sorkin refuses to be shut up. you go Sorkin!
oh, best original screenplay gets cuter presentation. why?
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
predix: tks/tkaar/another year/tkaar
okay, so Seidler has that wonderful british charm. i like him.
so it’s 1/1 on tsn vs. tks. this is actually a nailbiting year for oscar. i was thinking last night that this is sort of a man is evil vs. man is good battle (a la Community 1×09) and that I’m firmly at the cynic’s corner.
10:27 lol, anne. lolololol, james.
ohmygosh i actually understand helen mirren’s french! it wasn’t that hard to get though
BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE
winner: in a better world
lol, i actually have no idea about this category. i just love incendies as a title.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
shave your face, bale! don’t you have a batman film to shoot? I’m getting flashbacks to Certified Copy. i only shave every other day and lol, o’russell was never known for being kind on set.
best score up next. *nervous* though i’m actually okay with any of them winning (except for rahman, of course)
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
in other news, i kinda suck at predicting. lol.
too bad about Desplat. but he’s the hardest working composer in hollywood. he’ll get it someday
BEST SOUND MIXING
okay, i keep mixing sound mixing and editing up. if i’m right, this is the overall sound design (as opposed to sound elements). if I’ve switched it in my head again. sorry the predix goes the other way around
can’t really argue with inception though. the soundscape was one of the best things about it.
does anyone even care about this category? even the voters couldn’t care less. it’ll go to the wolfman, i suppose
LOTR SCORE FOR CATE BLANCHETT. HELL YEAH!
and it does go to the wolfman.
low batt. must get up and look for charger. noooo…
predix: alice in wonderland/i am love/i am love/the tempest
winner: alice in wonderland
yeah, i really need to watch the tempest.
best song performances. *still doesn't get toy story 3* and that's kind of an awful song performance, forgive me randy newman.
mandy moore and zachary levi!<3 though I can’t help but wish Mother Knows Best got nominated just so we get the awesomeness that is Donna Murphy on stage.
and why does mandy seem like she’s having a hard time. zachary levi i just might crush you. we’ll see
I’m not even gonna pretend I can predict this category
Best docu winner: strangers no more
best live action winner: god of love
well at least a filipino finally won an oscar, albeit minor (Stefanie Walmsley, producer)
OMG i think this is the first time I’ve really love autotune. I’ll totally listen to “Does he own a shirt?” best thing to come out of the twilight series, imo
predix: inside job/inside job/inside job/ bansky?
winner: inside job
got another thing right. yay!
er, still not the best sherlock/watson of the decade (cumberbatch/freeman 4eva!!!!1)
BEST VISUAL EFFECTS
predix: inception/inception/inception/um what else is nominated?
would it be totally crazy if inception suddenly wins best picture? it’s leading in number of oscars so far. lol. Oscar, you just got inceptioned!
predix: tsn/tsn/tsn/er, tsn
winner: tsn, yay!
ugh. need to rethink the font i used for that Dexter teaser /personal dilemmas.
love this wardrobe change, anne.
i’m getting so hipster about Florence. love her but don’t want her to become too mainstream :/
the best song category is so uninspiring this year
winner: we belong together ugh
kathryn bigelow is so statuesque<3 jane campion should make another movie so she can win one too (as if)
oh deer. get it next year with girl with a dragon tattoo fincher
…and the Oscars were going so well…
oh Oscars, plus points for putting Garfield behind Kidman so they’re in the same shot. i just may forgive you
gosling firth or bardem/firth/eisenberg? franco? so hard to pick this year
winner: all hail king firth
yeah, using tks speech as the basis of the montage isn’t a big clue on what’s gonna win.
oh well, there goes another year of Oscar disappointment. the feel good film wins and i’m feeling bitter, as usual. better luck next time. saying now that i’ll probably be rooting for Malick’s The Tree of Life. though why do i even bother?
