Here is a new post for the live blog. Continuing on…
9:01: HERE IT COMES. RUSSELL CROWE LIVE!
9:02: Why are they wearing modern clothes? That’s not fair. Catherine Zeta-Jones is probably pissed.
9:03: OH MY GOSH. RUSSELL CROWE SINGING LIVE. Only for 5 seconds, but it’s still amazing.
9:08: To all respect, that was great. Les Mis must be watched on stage. It’s so good live…
9:11: TED at the Oscars. This might be bad…
9:12: Best Sound Mixing goes to Les Miserables. No surprise there. Musicals ALWAYS win Best Sound Mixing.
9:15: WHAT?! A tie?! But great to see Zero Dark Thirty wins first tie!!!
9:17: Skyfall wins! Wow, that almost made my night. But I predicted Life of Pi but I’m okay because ZDT wins an Oscar and Argo doesn’t. Pyah!
9:20: I kind of loved that Sound of Music joke.!
9:22: Best Supporting Actress goes to Anne Hatheway! OH MY GOD! Shocker.
9:25: Still have a lot to get through but Oscar making a decent time. Though that Jaws cue music could’ve worked when Hatheway was listing all the people in her life. Stop.
9:28: If the night continues this trend of predictablity, it’s going Argo’s way. But we still have a lot of categories to go through. Editing and Screenplay will be very very important.
9:29: Harvey Weinstein would get up during the President’s speech.
9:31: Seeing the twitter and Facebook reaction, people are starting to see the harsh realities of the Academy.
9:33: There goes Best Picture. Argo wins Best Editing.
9:35: Adele is great. No doubt. But if she’s the only original song performing this year, then why even have the category? Just give her the Oscar then. Dumb dumb dumb.
9:37: While Adele performs, an update on my predictions. I’ve missed Supporting Actor, Best Documentary Short and and Sound Editing. Everything else is good (depending on your definition of good)
9:41: This is how the rest of the night is going to go. P. Design: Anna Karenina, Song: Skyfall, Score: Life of Pi, O. Screenplay: Django, A. Screenplay: Argo, Director: Spielberg, Actor: Lewis, Actress: Lawrence and Picture: Argo.
9:44: Right, mental illness, slavery and dying love all should be grouped together. Though I see the love underlying. Blah blah blah blah blah.
9:47: Amour’s highlight reel was amazing. absolutely amazing.
9:49: LINCOLN WINS! LINCOLN WINS! Only Production Design, but still a big deal!
9:52: The next step is Tony Kushner winning Adapted Screenplay. Just as Lincoln deserved to win for Production, it by far, deserves to win Screenplay. Come on Academy.
9:56: I love watching the redubbing of Les Mis. Great.
9:57: In Memoriam. Editing this thing is probably the easiest thing to do in the entire show, but probably feels the most pressure not to screw it up or forget someone.
9:59: George Clooney is currently working on the sequel of Lincoln.
10:02: Next year’s theme for the Oscars should be based off the movies that were nominated. I know, so progressive.
