Rooney Mara's bangs have to be taken out back and shot.
This Sacha Baron Cohen gag is bullshit and shouldn't have been allowed. I can't say how unfunny I think he really is.
I love those grouchy old Muppet dudes. They are my true inspiration.
First win: Cinematography - Hugo
Art Direction: HugoHugo was my favorite movie of the year. I'm happy to see it winning at least a couple of awards before that sissy-ass French crap takes over. ANd I don't mean Midnight in Paris.
Now the French sissy shit. The Artist wins for Costume Design.Really? How hard was it to get the main actor in a classic tux?
Makeup: The Iron LadyTorie skank.
Foreign Language Film: A Separation.I tried to watch this today and just couldn't get into it. It was 40 mins of watching Iranians argue about who will take care of their old dad. What am I missing?
Supporting Actress:Octavia Spencer in The Help
Is that really Ned at the Chapter 11 Theater??http://twitpic.com/8p7v7w
Editing: The Girl With The Dragon TattooSound Editing: HugoSound Mixing: Hugo
How did you miss Ned? Main page updated.
How did you miss my comment from 6:17?
Too much wine!
Documentary Feature: UndefeatedI just screened this film yesterday afternoon. I strongly recommend it for fans of either a) sports or b) the human condition. DO IT!
@OrelNo, I HAVE had too much wine.
Animated Feature: RangoSure to cause anger in my DreamWorks household.Personally: This fucking movie blew. Only the most contrarian, trying too hard hipster could like this. I wanted to shoot myself before finishing this, which I barely did. And I like damn near any feature animated movie that ever comes out (except for the second half of Up when the talking dog appears; sorry Nomo).Fuck this movie.
Rango does not, in fact. rock.
Telecast about 6-7 mins behind. Not bad.
Supporting Actor:Christopher PlummerOldest to ever receive an Academy Award. He's only a couple of years younger than the awards themselves.Hear's to his deserved win.
Score: The ArtistThis is the only category that I think The Artist should win. Clearly, the score drives a silent movie, and is therefore deserved.
Original Song: felt puppets
Crystal:"Front row, do you know what I'm thinking? Why don't we can just chip in and we can buy the Dodgers?"
Not only can Anjelina not eat, she can't read, either.
Wine status, Dusty?
Adapted Screenplay: The Descendants
@OrelFinished the French stuff. Moving on to the Coppola Director's Cut cabernet sauvignon (in keeping with the theme).Good thing I don't have a cross country flight at 8:40am tomorrow morning.
Original Screenplay: Midnight in ParisYea, Woody!
^ And I'm glad Woody Allen won.
Short Film, LIve Action: The Shore
Documentary Short: Saving Face
Animated Short: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Director: That dude who directed The Artist whose name I'm not even going to begin to try to spell.
Harry Morgan left out of the In Memoriam section? SHAME, Academy!#MASH
Actor: John of the Garden
Safe flight, Dusty!
I'M GOING STREEPING!!!
Actress shocker: Meryl Streep for Iron LadyWow.
Best Film:Fuck it. I disagree so heavily I can't even type.
@OrelThanks. I'm not flying the plane, luckily.
I very much liked the adapted screenplay win for Dean Pelton and the guy who played the guy in the milkshake costume in Reno 911
@FB: It must have been Reno 911 night at the Oscars. Deputy Clementine also presented an award.
Impressive poster work, Dusty. I was part of a campaign - led by Friend of SoSG Todd - to get Randy Savage in the Memoriam lineup. Alas, even with a contact in the Academy Award editing room, no dice :-(
@Dusty - did you do the photoshop of the posters? If so, color me impressed. Or Color Me Badd
I cannot claim credit for doing this. It was swiped from a website that I didn't directly credit because it has its logo on the posters themselves so I thought it would be redundant.
