{I apologize in advance because I am not editing this, and we are 3 bottles of champagne in.}

George Clooney is old Hollywood. And pretty.

Seriously, my mom could have been more successful interviewing these celebrities. LAME questions.

John Travolta should have worn a dress.

We all love Laura Linney. She needs to win. If not this year, then sometime in the near future.

“I would go camping with Javier Bardem.”

Where’s Ben Affleck? His wife was in Juno and his brother is nominated for the film he directed.

Amy Adams is not married to Borat; that would be Isla Fisher from Wedding Crashers. Common mistake.

Regis, are you really backstage interviewing the Enchanted dancers?

OOH NOOO. The governator? Let’s hope he’s not really there.

Great opening though! Of course now I want to TiVO-pause and name all of the films.

Very Star Trek, Jon Stewart emerging from the beam.

Oh boy, the first Hillary joke of the night.

Ok, at least he’s making fun of Obama too.

They changed the order. They usually start with a major category, like Best Supporting Actor. Weird.

Sweet. Elizabeth: The Golden Age won for costume.

Nice iPhone plug.

Best Animated Film: Ratatouille. No surprise. Pixar rules.

Katherine Heigl is also old Hollywood. Beautiful. Love the hair.

Makeup: La Vie en Rose. Totally deserving. Marion Cottilard was transformed into an entirely different woman.

Why is Amy Adams singing by herself on stage, and is she lip-syncing?

So..The Rock is officially Dwayne Johnson. The presenters seem quite random this year.

Visual Effects: NOT Transformers. Ha.

Art Direction: Sweeney Todd. Didn’t see it.

LOL. Cate Blanchett. Jon Stewart is doing a great job.

Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem.  Very nice.
JHud. Um…not a good dress.

Did they just bleep him out in Spanish?? WTF?

Um…a tribute to binoculars and periscopes. Wow.

Oh, Keri Russell. I loved Waitress. And Felicity.

I hate to say it, but I haven’t seen any of the live action shorts. I should really watch them online beforehand. Same for documentary shorts.

Oh no. Jerry Seinfeld needs to let Bee Movie go.  Now a bee montage? Jesus.

Are they that hard up for presenters?

Best Supporting Actress: YES!! Tilda Swinton. SWEET. OMG, loved the Clooney/Batman joke.

Best Adapted Screenplay: No Country For Old Men. As predicted.

We must be drunk. There is Miley Cyrus again. For no reason. Yawn.

And can I just say…the fact that Into the Wild and Eddie Vedder weren’t nominated is outrageous. Three songs from Enchanted seems excessive. That being said…I do love Kristin Chenowith and Pushing Daisies.

Ummm…someone just left me the dirtiest comment I’ve ever received on my blog, about the red carpet blog. But, my nieces read this, so I am choosing not to approve it.  Sorry, Man Spackle!
