Posted by on February 24, 2008 in Film | 0 comments

I love that Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill were introduced as Halle Berry and Dame Judi Dench.

Best Sound Editing: NOT Transformers again. Ha ha.

Best Sound Mixing: NOT Transformers again. Ha.

Sense a theme?

Best Actress: ALREADY??

Winner: YEAH! Marion Cottilard totally deserved it. Amazing. Brief speech. Perfect.

Colin Farrell. Not a major movie star. Ever heard of shampoo?

I LOVE Once. This song is stunning and I want them to win.

When was the last time that Jack didn’t attend the Oscars? Is he 80 too?

These montages are a waste of time, for the most part.

We all booed when they showed Crash for Best Picture. Ha. This is a Brokeback crowd.

Do Renee Zelweger’s eyes open? Has she been bodybuilding? Is she on the Mitchell List?

Editing: Bourne. The technical categories are being stolen away from No Country and There Will Be Blood.

Okay, if Nicole Kidman is pregnant…we are all very fat. But she is porcelain perfection.

We need to buy North by Northwest on DVD, asap.

There is a lull. I pulled out my Daniel-Day Lewis “milkshake” impersonation, and my friend Brian performed his Ruby Dee in American Gangster act. Good times.

Oh Penelope Cruz. You can afford a dentist.

McDreamy. The best hair in Hollywood. The other girls in the room are loving his glistening eyes.

Third song from Enchanted. I am sleepy. Moving to caffeinated beverages now.

Are we on a cruise ship? Those are some tight pants. This is like American Idol in Disneyland, with costumes. The horror.

John Travolta, who do you think you’re kidding?!

Best Original Song: YES! ONCE! Oh my. I love it, love it, love it.

RUDE! They didn’t let Marketa thank anyone or speak.

Ok, yes they did. So great.

F”ing Cameron Diaz. Not even a movie to promote. Heard of a hairbrush. She looks disheveled at every awards show.

Cinematography: There Will Be Blood. YES!

Oh. Here comes the Heath Ledger stuff, along with the others.

Where was Brad Renfro among the memorials?

Original Score: Atonement. GREAT sound. One word: typewriter.

Nice inclusion of the troops.

Ok, now we need to see Freeheld, the winner of the Best Documentary Short.

Best Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody. YES. Holy cow. She gives me hope.  Awwwww…she is a wreck. FANTASTIC.

Did Helen Mirren just say cahones? Yes, yes she did.

Best Actor: A lock. Daniel-Day Lewis. Best win ever. Go see There Will Be Blood. Right now. Leave your homes and go.

It’s a clean sweep for foreign actors. Marion Cottilard, Day-Lewis, Tilda Swinton, Javier Bardem. VERY impressive.

Best Director: Coen Brothers. Well, good for them. I think that Paul Thomas Anderson should have won, but they did an excellent job as well.

Best Picture: No Country For Old Men. Again, my second choice.

Time to go home and deal with my pending hangover.  Overall, no real surprises. Very happy with most victories.
