Does the actual show start at 4:00? Where is everybody?
The red carpet doesn't end until 5:30 so I assume it starts around then.
Love Jennifer Lawrence's hair lighter. She looks great!
show starts 8:30pm EST/5:30PST
Dam g2g. When I come back tell me if Channning Tatum Strip.
I'm unenthused about making picks this year because so many of the top categories are clearly locks between one or two top candidates. It's always more fun to pick a winning dark horse, but I just don't see any with better than 10-to-1 odds.
Remember, as I said before, true CDAN aficionados should be rooting for Django Unchained to win Best Picture because of the welter of QT-related debauchery BI's that would ensue.
Jessica Chastain is hot!
half the neighbrhood is at my house. the kids told their friends that we print out ballots and see who wins. everyone wants a ballot! first drinkng game rule here; drink eveytime someone says "unbelievable".
I love QT. If you like feet go for it!
Thank you for game Me, amazing it is! I think someone else mentioned the word Blessed.
He is also very intelligent in interviews.
is amanda drunk?
I have not seen any of these movies. I like Chastain and Lawrence, so if one wins, I will be happy. I really don't like the dresses both ladies chose tonight.
Wait, I forgot one: Ladbrokes has Moonrise Kingdom at 33-1 against for Best Original Screenplay. I would tout it at at least 5-1. QT and Boals have already won writing Oscars and Amour is foreign. Put your money on Wes Anderson for the upset.
@me…i thought drunk or stoned – definitely has something in her system…
If you can't watch it on TV they are live streaming the Oscar's on Hulu and some other sites check out deadline for the sites.
Dammit, I forgot that Ladbrokes doesn't take bets from USA IP's. Anyone care to put a tenner down on Moonrise Kingdom to win Best Original Screenplay for me?
oh sorry, sorry they are streaming the whole show starting tomorrow, read it wrong.
AnnE: NipplEs is all I see in that dress.
Right, it's midnight here and I've recorded the red carpet so I can speed through the ad breaks.I've had a few cocktails, so maybe it's me, but is Ryan Seacrest channeling Jason Priestley circa 1991? Look at his 90210 quiff!!!
Liev and Naomi zzzzzzzzzzzz
@me and @pink palace Amanda always acts like that. She's kind of odd. She looks absolutely stunning!
thanks @renoblondee! i never noticed it, but i did think she looked great.
Kneepads is busting on Brandi's dress – she designed it herself…the bottom is great, but the top is designed for a porn convention, not the Oscars…nip slip waiting to happen – again and again…
Oh oh oh! Is Bradley the answer to the blind about having to get mom to go with him?
Would it be catty of me to say that since CZJ is "younger" than me (oh hell, even I couldn't contain the laughing fit) my under eye area looks much, much better than hers.
Hi, Y'All!! What is everyone at home wearing tonight. Me, personally, I am wearing my workout clothes from going to the gym earlier. I know, such a slave to fashion.
Under- we did that in the lady thread. 🙂 most of us are in sweat pants or pjs.
@pink, OMG what is Brandi doing there anyways?
BTW, for all you Anne-haters, the touts have her as a massively favored to win. So if you did bet the field against her, you'd get the satisfaction of seeing her face when she lost and make a nice piece of change.
@under, LOL my avi pretty much speaks for all us girls tonight. 😉
@lotta, someone said she was working for ABC…i say she slept w/a producer…expect to see the answer on Twitter…lol oh, and she is there to rub it in Leanne and Eddie's faces…lol
Did Charlize ger revealed as the vindictive X who sends flowers and shit?
@B – It isn't so much as people thought she'd lose – it's that they want her to lose Personally, I hope she wins. She never did anything to me to make me dislike her. Well, except for "Get Smart."
@pink, working for ABC? lol doing what? Holding Robin's train?
I am honestly shocked that Stacy Kiebler made it to the Oscars. Wasn't there a BI she was on the chopping block?
@smash, yes that was Charlize.
No money bet but I'm still Team Helen. If more people had seen the film i bet they'd agree.
Ryan said something like "your afraid of no man". That made me laugh.
My Oscar prediction: Argo, Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Tommy Lee Jones, and Adele.
actually @lotta, it isn't abc…but she is THE fashion correspondent for: the On The Red Carpet live stream show
hahahahaha – got this via Huffington Post…I had to know…ABC sounded wrong…
Brandy that is a pretty good list, I think you may be right all around.
Salma does NOT look like Salma! What the?
I cant do 2 running threads at once. Apparently I'm having trouble multi-tasking.
Lola- I thought once the awards start we would move over here?
@pink, oh ok. Lol I was like wth would they hire her for! I was getting worried I would have to deal with her popping up in my morning routine which includes GMA.
For the red carpet, how high is Jen Aniston?
Smash, me too but people seem to be going back and forth.
I'll be over here in a bit.
my first time watching the show live w/CDaN crew, so I have jumped back and forth as I didn't know what to do…
GMA is a must see, especially w/Robin Roberts back! i had to switch to Amazing Race for a few minutes before the show started. Priorities…lol
Christ! Chenowith. o_0 There are no words.
And good to see Aniston has crows feet like us normal gals!
I don't normally play into the baby speculation, but I think that Jennifer Anniston might be pregnant. It was a bigger dress than she usually wears, and she kept doing this smoothing over her stomach thing.
Does anyone else think that maybe Jennifer Affleck may be in the early stage of pregnancy? It was when they showed her from the side…
Is it just a burrito or baby on the way?
Aniston needs to put her hair up, or do something different for once.
Amanda Seyfried seems to have issues articulating herself in live interviews… Gorgeous girl and dress despite the above
What? I missed the Jen Aniston food baby? What channel is everyone watching?
I hope JA is prego. That would be one beautiful babe.
E site is still down. 🙁 I'm watching Freaks & Geeks, I guess it's kind of the same thing, right? :b
@RenoBlondee, Kristin might be my favorite! i love her anyways…but for such a short frame, she has a gown fitted for her size! love love love it!
Ooh, I didn't know Charlize was that blind. Haha, I'd think of her as the ex who looks right through you at events.
just saw Anne Hathaway's dress and have to say HOLY NIPPLES BATMAN
besides that I've got my cookies and wine and I'm ready to get this shit rolling….
Jennifer Garner looked pregnant to me. Not sure about Jen but I did see the tummy grabs now that I switched to ABC.
Not sure about Jen A*
what the hell was jamie foxx talking about??
For the last time those are not her nipples it is called a Dart seam. They are stupid and look aweful when done on the bust to strong. You have to understich and I am sure it is diffucult. But yes! It is heidious!
Agreed, JenGarnAff looked pregnant. That dress was very slim fitting and unforgiving in the tummy department.
Chenowith just said "OH CRAP" when showing off the wizard of Oz ruby slippers, ha. Boy she's a skinny minnie.
forget Amazing Race…this is one night a year…speaking of those who look pregnant – did anyone see the bump on Halle Berry? OR is it just the ABC cameras?!?
do you think Kristin Chenoweth regrets doing the cruise ad?
Oh @Pink. Kristen is just awful. She's a total idiot. I still love ya though! 😉 and she does have a great voice!
Remember this blind from the other day: http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2013/02/blind-item-3_22.html?m=1 ? I think it's Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington.
Love Kristen Chenowith's dress.
Whoops, I hope I didn't confuse anyone – but I'm referring to Jen Garner/Affleck. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks she looks preggo. And I'm not saying she looks bloated or anything, it really was the strange way her dress looked from the side.
AnnE's dress looks kind of like a just "meh" prom dress.
Renee Z looks great!!
Renee looks really good too. Much healthier than she has in the last few years.
@Renoblondee – i loved her show GCB, but she had wayyy too much plastic surgery and didn't need it! she looks a little more normal now, but i have a girl crush on her. my friend in LA did some music w/her recently and loved her. OMG, she looks like a munchkin next to Queen Latifah.
Renee looks so much better and I actually didn't want to retch while watching her just now. Amazing!
Jamie Foxx's daughter is gorgeous.
My goodness, did anyone see Renee Zellweger? I'm extremely worried.
Renee looks healthier but what's going on with her face? Mainly the eye area…. Something is definitely off.
AS a tall woman, people like Kristin drive me nuts when they do the "oh, look how tiny I am" as she did with Adele.
We all know you are just a dear mite of a thing. Knock it the f#$% off. Keep your shoes on and your mouth shut.
Renee seems sweet, I like her. She just needs more of that Bridget Jones weight
I admit, she does look better as far as her weight…but her face isn't alright. I'm not sure…her whole energy is off, too. The interview was just weird.
@Betty K — as a really short woman, I agree completely. It's always the really skinny ones though, plump girls like me can't afford to be so.. obnoxious
Renee always looks shiny. Why! Was RDJr not clapping?!
Lets get this party started!
@Underthebigsky-thanks for asking! 😉 I'm wearing an OldNavy tank and some Target brand pajama pants, glasses courtesy of one of those online places.
Here we go!
Wow, Tommy Lee Jones actually smiled! Crazy.
RDJ so conspicuously NOT clapping as McFarlane came out for his intro!
Smug-assed RDJ. DON'T CARE WOULD STILL HIT IT
@smash, I know – but isn't it so much more fun to make nip jokes than dart jokes? :b
Remember that episode of Family Guy here they used Reese's chin to pry open a door? I wonder if she does?
Yes b! What was up with that?
Wasn't RDJ on Family Guy at one point?
And McFarlane is already going down in flames….
@Jason, wasn't she a squinty creature thing?
Seth seems very nervous.
Good grief. Not good
And the first boo of the night
Omg did he really just make a slavery joke?
@lotta – I don't remember.
I want a Lindsay joke from Seth.
Ahahaha, when he made that joke about Rhianna and Chris Brown, only RDJ clapped!
Why the hell is Shatner here?
Notice they aren't showing anyone's reaction
Drunk Captain Kirk! bwahahaha. Worst Oscar Host ever.
Loopymommy, that's a great guess.
awww, Jack Nicholson in the front row! i still think he is the actor who had a stroke, because he disappeared for awhile – missed all his Laker games – and now he is back! i love him for some weird reason…
I love the shat!
I wish Tina and Amy were hosting!
Naomi Watt's face was priceless!
OMG the boob song! Some ladies are not thrilled, but JLaw was game!
This is funny to me! I might be the only one.
Oh not that I think he's the worst host, it was the headline of the paper, lol. I'm loving this.
Ohhhhh, the producers are already fishing around backstage for a big hook….
Props to Naomi, Charlize & JLaw
Lol i love the pre recorded reactions to the song.
Wow…he can sing!
hahahahahaha- i think seth is doing good!
Omg the boob song was awesome to me!
if channing tatum doesn't take his shirt off now..
There's Channing showing off those dance moves he learned in stripper school. Charlize, swoon.
The dance was random.
Seth is doing great. Normally he annoys me.
Omg the puppets! Hahahahahahha
WTF happened to Rene Zellweger! I had to wait for the caption to be sure it was her!
And ladies and gentlemen, the best skit of the night!
Seth's doing pretty good.. oh, JGL and Harry!
Was that Denzel's real voice?
Sam Jackson didn't look amused either.
Liked the boob song too! I think JGL and DR belong to that choir *cough*Seth's doing a good job
JGL…. Highlight of my night! So handsome.
Now I'm fairly entertained.
Samuel is not impressed
Yeah Sam does not look enthused at all.
Weirdly enough, the dance bits are the best stuff so far.
I'm pretty sure James Franco got a bad review.
Get it Sally!
The Sally Field shit was FUNNY!
It's getting better…
yeah Samuel L Jackson looks like Tommy Lee Jones…
Sally Field has aged really well.
Okay, Anne & James or Seth McFarlane?
Joaquin with his sister Rainn!!
This Sally Field bit is hilarious!
Lol whoever said JGL and DR belonged in that choir, you called it!
Joaquin sitting next to his sister. Hmmmmm.
This is a bad concept.
I hope De Niro wins.
Grosss hag but yes!
That was awesome!
Sally Field is beautiful.
I really like Alan Arkin…but I don't think he's going to win.
isn't Rain or Rainbow Phoenix married to Casey Affleck?
I think PSH will win.
Seth is on a Roll!!!
I'm rooting DeNiro.
Love Christoph but think Tommy will win this one.
Wow! First shock of the night.
Christoph Waltz FTW! love love love him. very deserving
Wooow! Nice! I am glad django is getting cred!
Hoping for Alan Arkin but DeNiro was amazing in Silver Linings.
Go Chris! I wanted him in the movie more.
And as you can see I'm like 30 seconds behind LOL
Love Christoper Waltz!
The chic with qt is HOT!
Holy crap the supporting win was a dark horse victory. think it signals a sweep?
Casey is married to Summer Phoenix, btw.
Joaquin is with Rain.
This is live for everyone right? No worry about spoilers for anyone?
She must have great toes.
E.T score forever!
Woo hoo! for Mr. Waltz!
@Steampunk, I think that will be Django's "bone" for the evening.
Live for me
I loved the opening and the boob song was hilarious
thanks @lola…i can't keep them straight. i do remember when joaquin wanted to be called leaf…SMH
Heehee on the toes comment. I think she's an author f I remember correctly they've been together for a while. I hope he's doing better since Enty's experience with him in Russia, that story freaked me out. Regarding QT
WOW what a surprise but am glad Christoph won, very glad.
I thought the opening was funny, we laughed a lot. It's a hard gig, he did fine.
Waltz was a semi-dark horse. Django could do better than predicted.
Seth has pulled it out somewhat and is safely better than James & Anne at the moment.
Whops! But I got my drink!
Travolta got new hair?
@ Steampunk – A sweeps would be interesting!
I can't believe John Traviolta has the nerve to show up there on camera he has no shame!
Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy are painful. That bit sucked
Rudd is so College greasy. Is he Trying to downplay his cuteness?
This is so awkward. Just give the award!
I loved paper man!
Going back the Joaquin Phoenix, real quick: is he "with" Rain, or..? Cuz there was a blind item..
Agree, thay was awful.
yay for Brave!
He is also pictured with rainn at events. Ergo the blind link to the sibling couple
Switching over to Walking Dead. Hope I don't miss AnnE losing…..
I am glad we are moving at a clipping pace. It is going to be a long night as it is.
i love kilts, but at the Oscars? the blue dress the lady (who wrote Brave) had on was a disaster…80's mother of the bride dress…bless their hearts…
Bend and snap
They sang that shit live!!!! Wow. Just wow.
I was harkening further back to Tracy Flick
Surprised to see Travolta there.
Congrats to Mr. Waltz, still need to watch Django.
I noticed Joaquin and his sister too and thought ew!!!
Not sure about Reese's dress. :/
If you're actually Scots, and you're nominated for a film about Scots–even a cartoon–ye wear the kilt!
Movies with animals always make me cry. It just pulls some heart string in me. Also the music notes, certain pitch triggers some emotional response.
I didn't love beasts. But I like upsets. So hooray.
I dated a scot. Kilts are hot. He was also 6'10" so a kilt looked good on him.
Ah that montage made me teary. Q is totally adorable.
DRINK IT CLOONEY.
@Smash, I was about to freak out crying at Life of Pi, as well.
That little girl from Beasts of the Southern Wild is adorable!
Beasts is really touching. Loved it.
No Scarlett is not ALL the Avengers together, now is it?
I actually loved the opening. Love Q girl! Wished I had seen the movie but surprisingly it did not show in SF very long.
RDJ!! *wayne and garth voice* We're not worthy!! We're not worthy!!!
Poor Sam. lol.
Sam looks awesome in velvet! That shit is rich!
wow, that was Painful
Damn, I was pulling for Roger Deakins to win best cinematography.
I want that mans hair!!
Yes! Life of Pi should have won and did.
Sebastian Bach is a cinematographer?
I think Ang Lee is such a handsome guy.
YES, Pi! My favorite movie from this year's crop. Beautiful film, very affecting.
Love the Fabio hair. Travolta is hating hard right now.
I saw fabio in my wholefoods! He was doing a book signing.
So that wasn't scripted fighting… oopsie
What is going on… Is this scripted because it's painful.
I actually kinda liked Prometheus.
Nice makeup, Jeremy Renner. :-\
Pi again, hoorah. And that little tiff didn't seem scripted. Why so snippy tonight, RDJ?
Spielberg is soooooo gonna lose.
The pi crew looks so happy! Yay.
@smash haha that's awesome
@kloie, he really nailed his concealer tonight lol
Loving Seth! Awkward moments, chances taken – way way way better than AnnE and James
The jaws music lol!
Lotta my grandma loved the books he was on the cover of, I tried to get her to go meet him but she was to shy!!!!
Well that dude just bogarted the mic! The others were just left standing there behind him holding their Oscars. Rude!
BWAHAHAHA the Jaws theme to play them off and then cutting the mic. Ack. I don't know about that. Who was he talking about having financial problems?
was the shark music scripted?? if so, how did they know he was going to win?
Ok that Jaws music bit was awkward.
@b. profane & @smash,
like i said, i love kilts, but when he didn't have the accent – ruined it…also i have never seen those colors before…oh well, to quote someone else – different strokes…
can't believe those windbags got played off by music! nicole and keith loved it as much as the rest of us…lol
Awww, that was sweet of Nicole. She was mouthing "poor thing".
Blast my lousy typing skills, I miss too much looking at the keys! Did anyone else see Helen Hunt? She hasn't looked anything but Pained since the show started. 🙂
disembodied thumb- that's why i initially thought it was a scripted bit- bc it was just too weird and awkward to be natural? haha
Playing the Jaws music was hilarious.
He got cut of saying "remember……" I understand that sucks, but the other guys didn't get to say hi mom!
How rude was the jaws music cutting off special effects winners?
does jennifer aniston wear her hair any other way?
i am no fan of jen anniston, but her dress is amazing and she looks beautiful
These speeches are way too awkward. It pains
Jen looks rough and that dress!
Jennifer Aniston looks better now than she did 15 years ago.
Channing was funny. I like him.
I love the woman's outfit that won for Anna K
Now that costume designer! THAT is how you dress! she looked tasteful and striking.
So basically this woman nominated when she dresses Kiera Knightly. Good job, on those period pieces.
Those are some pink legs!
Good flu joke 🙂
Halle still looks like Jinx
I came back just to see the tight!!! Wow! She won for best hair and makeup!
I can't wait for Adele!
Dear God! LOL (Flu) Did ANYONE show up for Oscar rehearsals? they act afraid to clap. or react much at all.
Halle is almost greasy with all that oil. Since I'm making smackaroni and cheese I'm missing stuff. Keep running from the kitchen to he living room. I think Adele wil wim for Skyfall though. (
Bond has GOT to have an std!
My favorite Bond song by far!
why are we celebrating james bond movies??? shouldn't we be celebrating movies that are actually nominated for awards??
OW, Ms Shirley.
One of my fav bond songs.
Holy crap! Shirley Bassey! And she looks marvelous!
Shirley really looks into this! At least she looks like she's enjoying herself. Other than most of the other people there.
That's how you sing beyonce!!!
Adele is gonna have to sing really really well to beat Shirley Bassey's performance.
2 bad they scrapped the Bond reunion I was looking forward to that
I just checked – Dame Bassey is 76! Wow, she looks great!
@smash LOL Beyonce shmeyonce. It's J Hud's territory here!
@Erik I just said the same thing! She better bring it.
I know people also hated how Ella enchanted was done but I'd blame the director and writer.
Sean Connery is the only Bond!
@hag, interesting point, and the same one rjd made. The movies nominated are different than the ones making the money.
Brilliant performance!!! Absolutely sublime, Dame Bassey.
I second time bob! Mayor timebob if your nasty!
Lord I love me some Scandal.
Jeez, I leave to go fix dinner and come back to 100+ comments.
Christoph Waltz is so deserving, I applaud him. Maybe this will make folks go rent Inglorious Basturds which he qas phenomenal in.I like the ladies in colorful dresses, not these ones that are just about flesh colored and blend in with their skin. Why do they do that??
Kerri Washington needs a burger…Stat!
@Lotta – it's becoming one of my favorite shows
Lola I made a milkshake and there were 30 more. This is so fun!
So are they replacing the people in that little box next to the stage as they are being nominated?
That was a really nice speech
@V- Olivia Pope is so fierce, isn't she?
Mistang, I think the little boxes are the more minor award nominees.
Sorry B but I love that stripped dress.
well i guess that does make sense love/hate- but it shouldn't matter what movies make money. if they are not artistically worthy enough to get nominated, they should make way for the good stuff!
That Conor oberst look a like gets an a for a short, sweet speech! These girl look terrified. So cute.
@Lotta – I want to be here, but I'd keep my fro of course 😉
Amy Adam's boyfriend (husband?) is awfully cute.
That girl was so in awe. Very moving to see that.
Hoffman looks pompous. LIAM! wanna..
Lola that's what I thought too!!! 🙂 not manly enough for me but cute.
Some of these presenters have more trouble reading their lines than Lindsay did on SNL.
I liked SLP better, but Argo was a damn good movie. (And I'd kinda like to see Ben win)
The boxes are where the not as famous sit.
Lol Gigli reference was genius. Poor Ben.
Christoph Waltz rocks. Love the ladies that picked colorful dresses! I'm not a fan of these blah colored ones that practically blend with their skin. Why do they do that?
Seth just stole that Kardashian joke from 'The Dictaor'
Ohhh that's definitely Rain with Phoenix. O_o
Kate Capshaw looks like she could be related to Julie Christie.
Am I missing it on the not so good live stream or are they really not showing too much of the audience reactions?
Yeah not many audience reactions.
I wish, @hag! We need more good movies and less crap. Let's star writing!
@smash…now I kinda want a milkshake.
I love me some Seth M. But it has been downhill after Kirk. .
I really, really like the back of Jennifer Garner's gown.
Did I hear Ennio morricone's Cinema paradiso a minute ago?
Lola- 🙂 I made cashew milk and cut up banana strawberries froze then and with a little real milk bam! Super delicious.
Jessica Chastain does not look happy up there.
Jen G looks like she's 3 months preg.
Jennifer Garner neefs to stop with the lip injections. Seriously.
My daughter just offered to make me a mint chocolate chip shake. Yours sounds healthier.
@Reno…Haven't her lips always looked like that?
Yes except for the year titanic won
Nice new hair, Johnny. Blech.
Holy shit, I can't believe they put Travolta up there
Well…his rug looks A LOT better!
Mint chip sounds awesome! I drank 2 lattes so a full ice cream shake would kill me! I love mint chip ice cream.
Go home, fem bot.
Hello, Seymour Plow-Me!
Travoltas hair plugs are sooooo obvious!!!!
He's a presenter?! HE'S wearing his Pulp Fiction Hair!
The orchestra isn't even in the same room?
Travolta's new plugs look way too fake.
The LES is silent, honey.
lol love/hate i bet we could write a pretty damn good drama from CDAN blinds…starting with the lannister romance that is joaquin and rainn…im thinking "The Forbidden Fruit: Even Making Pervy Hollywood Types Go 'Yeeeeeesh, Really?'"
Good on CZJ
Im here Im here. WHAT I MISS?
Squee! I fucking LOVE Chicago!
Haha, hubby just said "CZJ looks good for 65."
LOL! I just came to make a comment about JT's toup. All that money and he buys that thing?
Pound for pound Jack Klugman on the old TV show Quincy always had the best toupee. Seriously.
Not much dragon you just missed travoltas hair plugs
I do not care for CZJ. she is not singing.
Catherine's still hot. Love this.
CZJ looks damn good for her age. Only compliment I'll give her tonight.
Is she lip syncing?
LOL. My daughter just said, "she's definitely older than 38."
CZJ can NOT lip sync! hahahaha
Oh look it's CZJ. Umm yay? I know it's supposed to be about movie musicals this year, but I think that's what's killing this show for me. It's just a little too much all together.
I LOVE this song!
Idk. I thought they were less puffy earlier.
Czj wiki says 43?! She is younger than my mom by only 2 years. And my mom looks so much better.
I don't understand this at all.
You think Beyonce is watching this? 🙂
I kinda like this dress better on JHud
Now she can sing! They are celebrating music in movies I believe.
I want a standing O for Jennifer!
Love the dress
@mistang well we know Renee definitely is lol
@dragon, hey! not much J but Hud is killing it! Stick it to to Bey girl.
JHud's dress- daa-yum.
Why are they doing old songs from old shows?
Okay Girl I will Love you
How did she not win American Idol?
JHud can wail!
Dayum…she brought it!
Yesssss team Hudson!
now she was singing!
whoa. Jennifer just took us to church.
Im gonna cry y'all!! I can't help it. I don't know why but this makes me cry
Jane Fonda looks GREAT! Last time I saw her on Kathy she looked like she was wearing a badger on her head.
She got it @Laura! Woot that was amazing.
Can JHud sing live at every awards show? Pretty please????
JHud is incredible, and now Hugh…if Anne could just slip on her dress and chip a tooth or something…she looks like a younger Liza…
SHUT UP ANNE
@lotta aigh thanks
Look anna anna trying to steal the spotlight
Anne should have worn this dress. Gorgeous.
I like this dress on Anne better than the one she showed up with.
hugh jackman is my hollywood fantasy man. gay rumors be damned.
susan boyle should crash this les mis number and take them all to school.
Geez…how is she trying to steal the spotlight? It was her solo.
I'm getting chills.
Waiting for Russell to come out with his guitar…
Lol @ Russell's "singing"
pleasepleaseplease no russell crowe! argh he got in
Who's the chick that's not amanda seyfried or hugh jackman? She was great?
… and Russell Crowe waddles out.
Ok I just got chicken skin.
Yes Russel Crow sing that SHIT!
Off topic, I miss Alan Gregory.
I liked J Hud's solo better. This was too busy for that tiny stage.
Damn it! Onions. Really beautiful! Much prettier dress on Anne.
LMFAO @ Russell Crowe with his guitar. He would have if he could have gotten away with it!
After seeing Hugh on the red carpet with his wife, I officially retract my years of gay rumor believing
Eddie Redmayne actually impressed me w/his voice…CZJ – hmm, didn't every other person sing LIVE?!? I agree that she is gorgeous, but i think she is my least favorite actress right now, even more so than Anne – thanks to her red carpet stunt!
"Les Miserable with additional lyrics by Russell Crowe"
Please take this to the Tony's and bring back the Oscars.
As an OT, I would like to thank the friend who gave me her spare Electric cigarette. I couldn't have lasted thru this without you. 🙂
Please tell me Eddie Redmaine and Amanda Siegfried are a couple. hot!!!!
@Mango – Hahaha! It did kinda look like he almost forgot to go and then just plopped out there.
I wish they wouldn't have rated oz PG. I may have gone to the theater but now I will wait for dvd
@dragon, they gave best supporting actor to Christoph Waltz from Django. I don't think any other major awards have been given out.
What stunt did CZJ pull?
@Betty, that's Samantha Banks, who played Eponine.
I'm watching vicariously through all of you. I wish they'd get the acting awards out of the way. Anne already has it in the bag for supporting actress. I want to see who wins best actress before I head off to bed!
@megan, she was being such a bitch when she didn't know the cameras were on her.
Let me reiterate that I love the bottom of Zoe's dress (don't love the belt).
She was way to good for Bradley!
Zoe is trying to not look down at the front row. Don't look at Brad, don't look at Brad.
What did her elder highness CZJ do on the red carpet?
Aaaand there's the Ted joke.
I wanna wipe that smirk off AnnE's face. Hope she loses. First time poster, longtime lurker. Hi!
How did Russel Crowe get cast in Les Miz? He was so outclassed.
LOL Ted is so cute.
Barks, not Banks. 🙂
@kloie… thank you. She was just stunning in every way. but I have never heard of her.
Russel Crowe actually has a band. Yes outclassed but he still can sing a little. I am over the Anne hate we know this.
Oh, this is going to be good. Loved Ted.
@lola I was remembering your comment when she walked out, and I agree.
she had a hissy fit (silently) but looks could have killed Jennifer Hudson's sister for walking by her and being in her way of talking to Ryan Seacrest – and then when CZJ wanted to show her nails on the manicam – it looked like Ryan Seacrest didn't hear her, but @lotta made a good point – perhaps he did it on purpose.
btw, JHud's sister was a big girl before, but she is now morbidly obese and considering all she has been through (losing her son, mom and brother), it was nice to see her smiling…
Thanks LottaColada.I should've known
Amy Adams looks ridiculous in that huge gown. She seems so down to earth and then the Alba thing and the "look at me" gown makes me rethink. Bummer.
I want to get to the award she is nominated for so I can see if she loses and makes a stink. Then I may like her less. For now I don't see the point.
Thanks Pink_Palace… Glad to hear JHud's sister is doing better
How are they doing the Ted thing? Is there a midget in a costume?
Why couldn't they have had Colmn Wilkinson have been in it? He was in the movie.
@pink, don't forget to add how she was coldly directing Michael Douglas where to walk as they were making their way through the crowd. She had such a smug look on her face the whole time the overhead cameras caught them walking. Then all of a sudden it was all smiles when talking to Ryan.
Really, jewish jokes?
That dude needs a haircut.
I feel like I'm in To Wong Foo – A TIE??
A tie? WOW.
Lol "No BS, we have a tie" Mark can be funny.
"no bs- there is a tie" – mark wahlberg very cute there
A tie? Has that happened before?
maybe the audience was told not to clap and maybe they are using long panning shots so that when the Major awards come, we won't be burned out on their features and Maybe Aliens have come at last.
We have a tie? WTH?
Weird long hair on a guy, pt. deux.
How can there be a tie? There should be no ties!
@lotta, i never got to see that…i still thought i saw icebergs between them w/Ryan…lol
for those loving Zoe's dress, include me…
What's with all of the long blond hair…on guys?
only long haired blondes can make it in cinema music in this town
"He is Viggo!"
They should've had a cage fight for the award.
Yeah, how many long haired blond guys will win Oscars tonight?
It's a great night for guys with long hair. I just want to see one of the long-haired guys wear it up in a pretty updo.
Hahaha I thought you guys were talking about how that one guy, who congratulated this winner, was wearing a tie instead of a bowtie. I was like wow, no one has ever shown up in a tie? I see what you guys are talking about now. I'm such a dork.
I must say Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and Grease are the only musicals I can sit through.
I'm so jealous. The guys are watching some smash bang loud movie and the online feeds aren't working. I want to see the Best Actress win!!
@Lotta, did you see the clip where CZJ was posing and Michael grabbed her arm and pulled her away? Weird.
funny joke 30 years ago for the Von Trapps. Jesus.
Ok, at least here is christopher plummer.
Christopher Plummer looks damn good. How old is he? Like 100?
Here it is!!!!
O.M.G. Will AnnE win????
Oh shiz it's time for Anne's speech!
Hey, I'm back to rockin' the lions mane so all power to the longhairs.
You're all waiting for it….
Katy what about chitty chitty bang bang?!
i have been in love w/Christopher Plummer since I saw the Sound of Music…he looks like he might have Parkinsons though…shaking kind of bad…makes me so sad!
Crossing my fingers for Ms. Field!
@prolixe, really? I totally missed that.
Anne makes me cry every time! Every time! I hear that.
Oh lord……..upset, upset!
Yeeeeeeeeeesss hahahaha eat crow!
Boo! Big fat boo.
@Smash…me too. She deserves it. Good for her.
(But she should've left the other dress on.)
Okay now we're past this.
And there is the oscar for annE!!
"it came true…"
then false humility.
ah well- i still think she deserved the reward
"IT CAME TRUE" Bitch shut the fuck up. You can go home and Shave ur back now
why no music for her?????
Hugh likes Anne!!! Why can't you? 🙂
well if hugh jackman likes her, she can't be all bad!
And she had to spoil it with,
"And it came true".
How many times do you think she rehearsed this speech?
Ah, well. Good for her.
I can't keep my eyes off the necklace, so pretty.
It was on the short list but thought three sounded better than four! Bed knobs and Broomsticks number five. But the first three are the only ones I can watch over and over again.
See, she's being very gracious.
Well that was a fun past couple of months wasn't it?
Agree she should have wore the other dress the remainder of the show.
Play her off!
you know she practiced the hell out of her speech! idc, she deserved her oscar
Did AnnE win?!!
@Lotta, it was on the E carpet film above, very brief. The lady in red who was doing all of the direction was next to Michael and then he took two steps back, grabbed CZJ's arm and started pulling her away. It seemed like she was really reluctant to leave the staging area. Just an awkward moment.
Wow, name-check half of Hollywood as your "team" and then you thank your family and the hub?
Surprisingly, a very toned down acceptance speech. That was really long and no jaws music though? I guess only the ones no one care about get that treatment.
Oh puke!The end of that speech was just forced and goofy.
Were those cigarette girls I just saw?
I would have rehearsed too. She was a shoe in; she turned out an amazingly moving performance.
Ugh I wanted Sally to win!
@mango, yeah she could've done without that line. But that's Anne!
Yes prolixe Anne won
Didn't seem a little odd that they played off Hathaway with the theme from The Godfather?
I can't believe AnnE didn't get the Jaws music.
OT, but what?? Hayden singing "Fame"?!
Yes. And Smash and I are very happy for her.
Glad that's over. I've said it before but I gotta say Sally Field looks incredible! I loved the skit earlier with Seth and the Flying Nun bit. She's a classy, beautiful lady.
I'm not an Anne hater, but oddly enough when Christopher Plummer announced her name, I really did have to go puke! Think I'm coming down with a stomach bug 🙁
In the immortal words of Willow, "bored now."
@erik, right? Very long speech with no music.
Oh maybe the Bonds will come out with Adele – fingers crossed!
Damn, would have loved to see Sally give another "You Like Me!" speech. Plus AnneE would be pouty.
Damn, I reached for the fast forward button, and realized that I'm caught up and watching live now 🙁
Seth is awful.
The Orchestra seems to only be playing John Williams music. With a Morricone, Rota and Goldsmith thrown in every now and then.
I love this! Score one for the normal folks!
They always want to be culturally relevant, then why do they always insist on having the academy members speak? I do like that they brought out the film makers, though.
LOVE Sandra's dress.
from Nikke Finke at Deadline (http://www.deadline.com/tag/oscars/)
OK, here’s what really happened with this tribute to 50 years of James Bond films. Besides the fact it looks like it was edited with a blunt meat cleaver. The Academy and the show’s producers hoped to gather together all the living 007 actors. But Sean Connery refused to come because he hates the Broccoli family. Something about how he thinks they cheated him out of money he was owed. Then Pierce Brosnan refused to come because he hates the Broccoli family as well. Something about how he thinks they pulled him from the role too early. Roger Moore was dying to come because, well, he’s a sweetheart. And Daniel Craig would have come because he does what he’s told by the Broccoli family’s Eon Productions whose Bond #23 Skyfall just went through the box office global roof. So there you have it.
Apparently AnnE learned from those other awful clunky acceptance speeches she gave. That or her PR team told her to at least pretend to be humble.
Hayden P. is gross. That commercial is sick.
So, what did Plummer's "Pick on someone your own size" comment mean? It went over our heads.
Yeah you guys were right about Sandy's nose :/
Sandra, darling, you're one nose job away from Voldemort. And this is from someone who likes you.
Argo should take this.
oh sandra, what did you do to your face?
I feel I've seen this dress on Sandra Bullock at least five times before in varying shades of lace. Heh it was pretty the first time
Betty k thanks for the insight. Watching behind the scene footage and commentary not many people were happy after chubby died. Things went downhill.
It's another guy with -berg on the end of his name. Can we please have Ted host the rest of the show?
Oh no! AnnE won. I so wanted Sally to win. She'll be insufferable now.
Looks like all the "Argo" awards are starting now.
Why is George sitting in front of Ben?
That dress is amazing on stage.
Jlaw can't read off a promoter to save her life.
JLaw gets love from that room!
The second half of the Shirley Bassey vs. Adele death match.
JLaw looked nervous as all heck. Adele's so gorgeous.
JLaw's dress has a nice flow to it
Adele looks stunning with her hair like that
So is Taylor Swift going to be mad at Jennifer Lawrence for introducing Adele?
Wow…Adele looks really beautiful.
She should wear her hair down more often.
Jaws dress looks like the tablecloth my Nana used to bring out at Chrstmas. I would be more excited to see Adele if she hadn't of said she wanted to work with the Difficult Brown. I liked she changed her hair up.The sounds not great
And look, it's another Oscar winner with long, blonde, unkempt hair. Oh Adele, you have the rest of the look perfect.
thanks @betty k! my big brother loved Bond movies, so i am a closet bond junkie. had no idea!
Adele looks gorgeous!! she should wear her hair down more often!
That ring is blinding me!
is it only me that thinks she sounds like Amy Winehouse (bless her soul)
Adele is sooooo pretty, her skin is amazing.
Gold finger was better.. Sorry Adele.
The sound people are doing a horrible job of letting the music drown her out.
Adele is definitely going to steal the show like she did at the golden globes. She's so effortlessly amazing.
Is it just me, or is Adele's voice sounding strained?
Adele looks fabulous.
Thank u. I did think that either Connery or Pierce mucked it up. I don't blame Pierce he was an awesome Bond until Daniel now I swoon for him
Damn, Adele was great.
I love Adele, but that song? Not so much. I actually like the Taylor Swift song better. 🙁
Did anyone else see Skyfall? The opening credits with her song were visually stunning. One of the best sequences I've seen in a long time. Worth renting just o watch the first 15 mins.
Sound was not right for that performance.
Dame Bassey and JHud sounded much better.
But, yes, Adele seemed a little drowned out by the band. 🙁
Is the Taylor Swift song nominated?
I think Shirley beat Adele. I kept waiting for her to bust it, but I guess not tonight.
Totally agree. It was a stunning beginning. (And quite a good Bond film.)
Is there something wrong with me: I think 9 out of 10 James Bond songs suck and they all sound the same. Sorry, Adele. You're no exception.
I'm actually loving Seth as host.
Damn, Nicole Kidman looks incredible.
Live and Let Die is probably my favorite Bond song.
And Nobody Does it Better.
I love Nicole, she has a cute giggle.
@Lola, no it wasn't or trust me Swift would be there in person if it was.
Don't George Clooney and David O' Russell hate each other? They got into fistfights on the set of Three Kings. I'm surprised thy haven't clocked each other yet. Then again, h night ain't over.
THe chick sitting next to David O Russells has some lovely melons in that small shirt.
"well if hugh jackman likes her, she can't be all bad!"
Hugh Jackman is bff's with Rupert Murdoch. 'Nuf said.
Am I the only one who sees Django Unchained and thinks "Wild Wild West"?
I can't wait to buy django. It looks like a great movie.
Ahhh…thanks, Lotta. (Yeah, she would've been there.)
Dayyaum Nicole! That dress is awesome! She looks Great
OH LORD K STEW
What is Kristen Stewart on?
ugh kstew- she gives us hags a bad name
@Seachica – Django had something Wild Wild West didn't have. A finished script before shooting began.
Wow a good child actor and a bitch who thinks getting her photo taken it like rape. She is an idiot who looks like my aunt who used to do speed and meth.
Safe and Sound should have been nominated. It's pretty amazing.
Okay what the hell Kristen Stewart!
Kristen is such an idiot stomping around in that dress, she's painful to watch, in everything.
Kristen looks like she just came back from having sex in a car.
I thought she would've hobbled out in crutches. For the love of God KStew wash your hair.
Take a nap Kristen.
Nice bruise, Kristin!
Um Kristen forgot to brush.
Nice bruise on your arm, Kristen.
Do you think she always talks in a monotone, even when she's out drinking with friends.
She's also looking a little "methy"
Good lord, Has she got the crack crawls going? Kristens' hair looks terrible. Lincoln got a Bone! y
Who did KStew blow to get this position? Doesn't she hate this stuff?
Kristen looks like shit. Wtf?
@hag, lol! You're funny
@mooshki, never heard of that one, but i do know that you never hear a bad word about hugh. as far as anne goes, i always liked her til the boyfriend was convicted and she played the innocent angel…then her smug attitude over awards season – reminds me of natalie portman a few years ago. i like her again, so i am sure i will like anne too. RM – no comment needed…
I like that Daniel Radcliff still kind of has a bit of the geek about him.
Best Bond song EVER: A VIEW TO A KILL, Duran Duran…..
Kinda hoped she was limping because Radcliffe kicked her in the shin.
Her hair in Snow White and the Woodsman (when she is being chased through the woods, running for her life) looks like her hair on the red carpet or in any photo op. Tangled, unwashed, unbrushed.
I hope Hugh Jackman wins best actor
Even I can see that Stew is an entire mess. And why are her upper arms bruised and flabby?
Haven't watched the awards yet, just came to say DAYUM Carl's voice dropped!!
I'll be back lata guys, gotta catch up with everyone else!
Thank you fancy! I was trying to remember that!!!
OK, seriously…these are some of the most beautiful women in the world, with perfect bodies and tailored dresses. There is NO excuse for armpit cleavage like on Salma Hayek.
Twighlight gal was coked out of her mind.
the high neck on her dress would make be feel like I was being choked.
You guys should've seen Kristin on the red carpet with the crutches.
Kstew looked seriously fucked up
Kristen Stewart is a freak. What is wrong with her?
My God its 11:00 in my area, how much longer?
@Seachica…especially when you consider who her husband is.
(Runs PPR…parent company of some of the biggest fashion houses.)
Somewhere Michael Eisner is gnashing his teeth over Jeffrey Katzenberg's award.
Omg @B Profane Exactly. Lol
Maybe Kristen's on some good pain meds.
Salma looked good I didnt notice the armpit cleavage will look for it in pics. She looks like a movie star unlike the spoiled crackhead that preceded her.
@Lotta…it is scheduled for another 35 minutes.
I think another 2 hours!!!!
Oh sorry Lola. :)!
@Smash…I thought it was until 10:30 central/mountain
Thank you, Mooshki. It hit me during his red carpet interview.
How can that be? What about best actor/actress, director and best picture? It's going to much longer than I expected.
George, Just say no to the beard. Didn't you learn anything from your buddy Brad P?
And yet he still looks incredible.
Mango – Michal Eisner s still smarting over that hug payout to Jeff years ago.
It is scheduled until 830 here in Seattle.
Okay who did they leave out this year?
I don't know that they can cram all of that in 30 minutes.
Thanks V. I am away from the tv for a moment. 🙂
John Barry music – which score is this? Out Of Africa?
Thank you, Mooshki. It came to me during his red carpet interview.
I didn't know Nora Ephron died!
I'm flipping to Amazing Race, let me know what I miss
And now Barbra schools Adele.
She looks beautiful. And sounds incredible.
Sorry seachica I love the beard on Clooney.
I forgot about the performances. I think it's going to run over the time slot another 15-30 minutes.
She does look great.
OMG. I'm kinda wigging out about Barbara right now.
My grandma saw Barbara in person and said she was tiny! And her face is flawless.
I mean Barbra. Eeep!
I forget how beautiful Barbra's voice is…and then I hear her sing and…WOW.
And Barbara Too? Talk about looking good. Hit it out of the Park!
My cable box has the until 10 pm blocked out and it is only 8 right now.
bring Barbra back every year – but Babs, you need to leave the lips alone!
Wow. Goosebumps for sure! She is lovely.
It is entirely possible I looked at the time wrong.
@smash lol they are taking precautions
Crikey. That's why Barbara is Barbara.
Oh no Lola. It says oscars red carpet so I think they didn't even know how long it would run.
Why didn't Babs sing thru the whole In Memoriam? She came out and gave props to Marvin only. This whole show makes no sense. Mark my words these producers will never be hired again.
Would someone please give John Travolta the name and number of Babs' botox artist?
kstew has inspired me to change my avatar pic. just unreal
for a 70 year old broad, these other celebs need to be chasing her down and getting her beauty regime and number of her surgeon because she looks better than most half her age
Babs brought it. Chills!
Hag I think I saw her earlier although I was watching The Walking Dead. Shit she should of stayed at home
Smash…I'm having some mint chocolate chip ice cream! 😀
OOOHHH SNAP! This show wasn't gay enough so here's Richard Gere, Queen Latifah….
@hag, tee hee!
CZJ looks Asain now.
No kidding! Ridiculous!
@ Jason _ I'm sure Eisner is either throwing darts at a photo of Katzenberg or drinking himself silly.
Here's some Eisner gossip – Years ago there was an infamous gay bar in Orlando, the name escapes me right now, but I knew people who partied there. Eisner would come to Orlando to visit Disney World and a colleague of mine swore that Eisner would visit that bar. This place was notorious for crazy shit going down.
Meanwhile in California, Eisner had a wife and kids.
I don't get this huge focus on musicals. And this is coming from a fan of musicals, especially Chicago. This broadcast is so god damn long. Shit.
@Theresa, I would include Jane Fonda too 😉
Babs really sounded great. It's nice to see older broads schooling us "younguns"
renee's face looks like it is melting – i am thinking her false eyelashes are not helping! isn't she younger than CZJ? she looks @ least 5 yrs older!
Wow, Rene is really NOT pretty!
Oh man. I wish they all would have performed. Chicago is my fave.
Heard in our house:"Catherine Zeta Jones doesn't look like Catherine Zeta Jones anymore. She's had too much work done.""Neither Does Renee Zellweger""Or Richard Gere""Oh my god, the zombies have arrived!"
Oh get over yourself CZJ!
John Williams and Thomas Newman are my fvorite composers – and I'll bet they both lose.
Wtf why didn't Renee read the damn envelope?
tell me about it katydid! honestly, i think now that twilight is over her days are numbered anyway
queen latifah for the save! why is renee wobbling??
life of pi is SWEEPING the lower categories…. Still can't get over Rene face work
Cmon Renee don't be shy!
Mango – the club was probably Parliment House. I spent many a fun night there. Spent 20 years working for Disney, most in the Eisner days, and can tell some tales. He sucks balls, but Iger isn't much better.
Richard Gere and Renee Z. have the tiniest eyes in Hollywood.
@Mango – i bet it was Firestone. i went there w/my best friend for Halloween one year. there were a bunch of Disney employees and the costumes were the best i have ever seen in my life! it was notorious in the days Eisner was in charge – i think it is still around?!?
Renee always looks shiney! Always.
Wtf is up with Renee's eyes?? Squint much?
What are Renee Zellweger and Kristen Stewart on? I can't believe it's 11:15 and there have been 2 major awards so far. The Grammys were so much more enjoyable than this.
OMG go check out Mia Farrows twitter about who is on coke at the Oscars. I'll save you the link, Kristen Stewart.
Seriously, how did Renee achieve to age herself this much?
