2011 Academy Awards GT (Feb 27 @ 5p)

That's right, it's the 2011 Oscars! Will the early front-runner The Social Network connect with Academy voters, or will the late surge of The King's Speech prove to be more eloquent? Did Natalie Portman's crass comments at the Golden Globes give Annette Bening the opening she needed to strike gold? Does Anne Hathaway have a funny bone in her? Does James Franco have any bones left beyond the wrist?

Bring it!

*makes fun of random actress' haircut*

*ducks Karina's thrown object*

Dusty Baker said...

Looking to take the trophy back from Mrs Dusty-in-law this year. I usually win the family Oscar pool but she wrested the title from me on a technicality last year. I've been bitter ever since.

Great minds, Dusty?

Dusty Baker said...

I like how you think, Orel.

Orel said...

Who watches this red carpet crap? Besides my wife?

Dusty Baker said...

My wife and sister in law. So, me too.

Dusty Baker said...

More than ever, the on air "reporters" are just talking to each other about wearing a lot of jewelry. Is this entertainment?

Dusty Baker said...

KTLA 5 studio correspondent is HIDEOUS! In what world did she think that outfit and look was working for her?

Even Karina would gag at this get-up.

karina said...

want some pics!

I also watch the red carpet (look, a nice dress here and there!) but I'll be doing that after I end watching Up in the Air <3

Dusty Baker said...

I think you can watch here, Karina: http://www.ktla.com/

Dusty Baker said...

Melissa Leo's eyes look like they were filled in with Bondo.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker saw the woman,she's not hideous but she doesn't look pretty.I wonder when women of the world will realize fake tans are awful and distasteful. Her fake tan clashes with the color of her dress and her classic red lipstick, IMHO.

@Czar you had me at Alan Smithee, hilarious!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't wait to see what bird Bjork wears this year.

karina said...

@Czar I sense you have a passive-aggressive attitude towards Sex and the City

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Karina - I'm sorry, what were you saying? I was too busy thinking of Kim Cattrall.

Josh S. said...

Bjork got a raw deal. She wore one swan to the Oscars and got run out of Hollywood on a rail. Lady Gaga wears a fucking Denny's Grand Slam to every award show and is lauded as a genius.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: what can we say, that's just Human Behavior.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Lady Gaga creates bizarre outfits to disguise the fact that she's relatively unattractive.

Spank said...

Business as usual

Dusty Baker said...

@karina

The dress was hideous. This is unquestionable. Added against her faux everything, the effect wa ls less than stunning.

You're allowed to hate. It can happen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Holy shit, John Ely knows how to get between Glendale and LA fast.

Dusty Baker said...

"Ely" looks lime he's aged 10 yrs - stay out of the sun, bro.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I wish I could get the red carpet treatment when I go to places.

"Who are you wearing?"
"Adidas and Levi's."

Dusty Baker said...

Are you trying to give me a stroke, MLASC? #apostrophe

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Take it up with corporate, Dusty. They make the apostrophe part of the logo.

Dusty Baker said...

And I know that's how the company spells it, but they're wrong.

Josh S. said...

Hell, I can get from Glendale to LA pretty fast. I do it every morning.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for sharing those two separate, distinct facts, Josh.

Josh S. said...

Mila Kunis's boob tattoos.

Dusty Baker said...

I THOUGHT THE SAME THING, Josh. I even noted it to Mrs Dusty, who can vouch.

karina said...

@Czar awwwwwww, a Kim Cattrall fixation?

hahahaha, Adidas and Levis' (to please Dusty), my response would be Zara and Forever 21...

@Dusty Baker she's not hideous,just not pretty...in the other hand,you know who looks hideous?Giuliana from E! can anyone give that woman a couple of extra large hamburguers, with fries, soda, milkshake AND ice cream?
girl, you won't ever look pretty if you don't put some meat on...

one question: do men actually think a woman that skinny is attractive?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

No, I definitely don't. Women should have a burger and fries.

What I think is ugly Is gaudy dresses, skanky hairdos, and fake tans.

Orel said...

@karina "do men actually think a woman that skinny is attractive?"

No.

Spank said...

Just tuned in and I'm already tired of this Franco mutt

Spank said...

I like burgers and fries

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

The vote is still unanimous. That woman needs a sammitch.

Orel said...

I haven't had In-N-Out in a while.

Orel said...

On a tee, people.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I could go for a burger right now.

Spank said...

Aw man.I missed Amy Adams walking the carpet. She never did accept my friend request.Bitch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sure, when Roberto Benigni walks on seats, he's lauded for being a great moment. But when I do it, I'm labeled a flight risk.

karina said...

@Czar I think you're allowed to do that only if you just won the Academy Award.

Thanks for validating my opinion of too skinny women.

@Dusty Baker you're right about fake tans, sporting one's color is elegant! what's wrong with pale anyway?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Conan did this better.

Josh S. said...

Monologue (dialogue?) is death so far.

karina said...

RT @sportsguys33 BREAKING: Buster Olney reports that Billy Crystal is warming up in the Oscars bullpen


spilled my drink!

karina said...

no complaints about the first technical-category winners

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So if I can talk in a thick Boston accent, I can be nominated for an Oscar?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why couldn't Kirk Douglas host?

karina said...

can we have more Kirk Douglas, Academy, PLEASE?

Spank said...

I almost threw my plate at J.T and tat-tit.Retards.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn you Blogger!

Horrible tux, Javier. I want ton hand my empty drink glass to you. Don't wear white tuxes.

rbnlaw said...

WTF did Kirk Douglas say?
I caught the reaction.

Mila Kunis: Better as the voice of Meg Griffin. Tittat or no.

Dusty Baker said...

Assisted suicide for Kirk Douglas please.

rbnlaw said...

@DB: Sorta like drinking gin and tonic in the winter.

BTW: How to Drain Your Dragon was an awesome movie.

rbnlaw said...

Drink Status: Pinot
Drunk status: Close.

rbnlaw said...

I'm not a member of the Anne Hathaway Marching and Chowder Society.

Spank said...

killKillKILL

rbnlaw said...

Hiyoooooooo

Dusty Baker said...

Note to award accepters: watch British folks and learn how to make a classy, humble acceptance speech. Looking at you Melissa Leo.

rbnlaw said...

How come the foreign films look better than ours?

#GODANES!

Dusty Baker said...

Russell Brand, you are a fucking clown.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker when you already won an oscar and you father Penelope Cruz babies, there isn't much to judge you. Just sayin'

Dusty Baker said...

Dint get me wrong, Karina, I love Bardem as an actor. It's just that a grown man who is not a waiter shouldn't be wearing a white tux like that.

Spank said...

About fucking time.

rbnlaw said...

Damn. Have to go see that King's Peach movie. Seems well written.


and Christian Bale is a nutty mofo.

rbnlaw said...

Bale: Shut the fuck up already.


Sheesh.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I'm not very much into white tuxedos either...they are First Holy Communion wardrobe!

rbnlaw said...

Wait. Who's this guy? A Dodger fan?

karina said...

so he's a Dodgers fan and he knows a thing or two about loyalty <3

Spank said...

It's pat ourselves on the back time

Dusty Baker said...

That makes me even less into them now that I know they have some sort of dogmatic ritual purpose.

karina said...

but you also know about heartbreaking and a couple of capital sins like anger and jealousy :(

rbnlaw said...

Hugh Jackman is Australian?

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck yeah, represent Dodgers bro!

Dusty Baker said...

Is hateHateHATE a sin? Please tell me no.

What fool made up these rules?

rbnlaw said...

I'm just the guy getting in the way of the DB/karina tete au tete.

Or however they say it in Norwegian.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Dragon, win something for Mrs Dusty!

rbnlaw said...

Thank the loahd that I won't have to hear those annoying Inception commercials after tonight.

Which one's Reznor?

Mr. Customer said...

Trent Fucking Reznor. That's awesome.

Mr. Customer said...

Franco annoys.

rbnlaw said...

Franco=plywood.

Spank said...

ScarJo looks like she got rocked backstage.

rbnlaw said...

Chocolate covered pretzels rule the school, fool.


Just sayin'.

rbnlaw said...

@Spank.
I was just thinking the same thing.

Dusty Baker said...

Reznor = sell out

rbnlaw said...

They're bringing back Crossing Jordan,and they're calling it Body of Proof.

Dusty Baker said...

ScarJo looked like she just sold a foot of her hair for some meth in the alley out back.

rbnlaw said...

Dudes, and lady, I bought a bottle of Crane Lake pinotfor less than $4, and it rocks.

My kids are all up on Alice in Wonderland winning something.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon, drop that statue. Or the card.

Dusty Baker said...

That gasbaggery Alice is going to cause me to lose the Oscar pool this year. That movie licked giant stinky rim.

rbnlaw said...

I Love LA. C'mon Randy. . .say it!

rbnlaw said...

DB gets a +2 for that last comment.

rbnlaw said...

Who was passing out the bronzer this year?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm rooting for Randy bc of I Love LA, RBN.

And bc I need this category to catch up with the missus.

Spank said...

Who let the peacock in?

rbnlaw said...

100

rbnlaw said...

Shit, I almost had 2 100's in one day.

rbnlaw said...

Twitter is all f'd up right now.

Dusty Baker said...

This Franco kid is flatter than a second grade girl.

Spank said...

I want to give my oscar to Amy Adams.

Orel said...

Hey, I'm back. Just got back from rockin' ScarJo backstage.

Dusty Baker said...

Did you sell her some Meth, Orel?

Spank said...

I'm getting high just watching this guy talk

rbnlaw said...

MSTI had a good tweet about the Dodger fan guy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

AUTOTUNE IS THE SCOURGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate it like I hate Simers.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, shoot me now. Hide your children, hide your wives.

rbnlaw said...

Cause they snatchin up yo people up in here.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Originally the Academy would not let Oprah present an award, so she bought the Academy instead.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus fucking christ who let Oprah on here. killKillKILL me now!!!

Josh S. said...

Waaaaaayyy behind on this bish. Gonna go order some Thai food and play catch up on the DVR.

rbnlaw said...

Oprah looks boobalicious tonight.

Spank said...

I want to take a trail hike through Oprah's breast.

Dusty Baker said...

Be careful in Tiramisu pass, Spank.

rbnlaw said...

Spank with a +2.

Orel said...

Scarlett's a good girl, she is!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I sincerely hope Billy's here to take over as host.

rbnlaw said...

My god. They've raised Johnny Carson from the dead. . .oh wait, Billy Crystal.

Nevermind.

Spank said...

Bring back Oprah!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The corpse of Johnny Carson would make a great host.

The corpse of Aubrey Huff would make a great host.

rbnlaw said...

Bob Hope was funnyyyy.

Dusty Baker said...

Jude Law? Totally forgot he existed.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I already got plenty of Winter's Bone jokes from that sketch of Wayne's World.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

karina said...

I want to keep Billy Crystal...and thanks the God,Blogger is working again,people hate me on Twitter because I think Inception is a VERY GOOD movie but not a masterpiece :(

Spank said...

*changes channel*

rbnlaw said...

As singers go, Gwenneth Paltrow is a great actress.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon Randy!!!!!!

karina said...

Congrats Randy!

Spank said...

Barney Frank

Dusty Baker said...

They should play I Love LA for Randy Newman!

Dusty Baker said...

*returns to pithy remarks*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'd rather be watching Modern Family right now.

rbnlaw said...

RIP Dead Guys and Gals.

rbnlaw said...

RIP Halle Berry's career

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nothing for Len Lesser? He was the movies, you jackasses!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ah, this whole production can go to hell.

Dusty Baker said...

Long live halle Berry's assets.

rbnlaw said...

Time for the best bi-polar guy award.

rbnlaw said...

. . .and Halle Berry's front-sets.

Spank said...

Aww..Que cute

rbnlaw said...

The good, the bad, and Eli Fucking Wallach!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

TUCO YOU MAGNIFICENT SONOFABITCH

rbnlaw said...

Just remember, from The Good. . etc:

"Known as The Rat."

rbnlaw said...

Fire in the fireplace, drinking the pinot, and kids making their own lunch.

Life is damn good.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hope he entered the Kodak through a window.

Spank said...

Ryan Gosling should have won best actress

rbnlaw said...

GEEKGASM!!

Spank said...

Portman is acting better here than she did in Star Wars

Dusty Baker said...

I have a fire in the fireplace, too. Claret poured ready to toast KING'S SPEECH.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javier already has an Oscar and Penelope. What more does he need?

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, when does this damn thing end already?

Steve Sax said...

How many more awards to go?

Spank said...

one more,saxy

Spank said...

or 2.

rbnlaw said...

What? No music slowly playing in behind?

Fuckers.

rbnlaw said...

Go PS22!

rbnlaw said...

Damn.The fire, the wine; might have to call in sick tomorrow.

rbnlaw said...

Whoa. The Hathaway Marching an Chowder Society may get a member.


*rimshot*

Spank said...

10 movies is too much.too much

rbnlaw said...

King's Speech

rbnlaw said...

. . .and the winner is. . .

rbnlaw said...

Told ya.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I thought True Grit should have won.

rbnlaw said...

I saw The Social Network. I told a friend that it was like a really good movie of the week.
My kids only sort of liked TS3.
Black Swan was too scary.
The Fighter looked good. Just never saw it.
Inception was too CGI heavy.
Were there others?

Spank said...

lipsynching

rbnlaw said...

Oh yeah, True Grit was technically a "remake," even though it wasn't.

Finally: British accents win; best made pics, not so much. Still does not explain Titanic, which was a huge BORE.

Steve Sax said...

Who's on? Firth?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sorry Saxy, Orel already made that joke.

Orel said...

Gotta be pretty quick to make the most obvious pun around here!

Steve Sax said...

Yeah, I saw Orel's early joke. I thought it was all in the delivery however...

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

That's exactly my take on SOCIAL. It was a two-part made-for-TV special on Monday and Tuesday night on ABC about some kids who made an internet site.

karina said...

I know I've been torturing people with this BUT

who thinks Inception is a masterpiece?

rbnlaw said...

Thanks for the affirmation, DB. Good movie, but not earth-shattering.

rbnlaw said...

And I'm out.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

As I think we talked about when INCEPTION came out, my take is a bit less than yours. I thought it was a brilliant conception that fell apart about 2/3 of the way in. Love the idea; don't think it was well operationalized. The whole shooting at each other on ice made me laugh out loud - ill-conceived tripe. But yeah, it had some moments for sure.
