Didn't have my shiate together enough to plan an Oscar party so I'm going to go watch it at the Bell House in Brooklyn if anyone cares to join me.

Here's the venue details. (new window)

If BC gets to telling political jokes, will he blast republicans or democrats more?


In hollywood, a 4:1 ratio is considered balanced.

I think the Oscar nomination of Jonah Hill is the film award version of the heel in professional sports. People don't like him, don't want him there and only will watch just to see him lose.

This has been a shiat year for movies. Here's who should win each of the major categories, with an acceptable second place choice:

The Artist (or Moneyball)
Michel Hazanavicius (or Scorsese)
Jean Dujardin (or Oldman)
Viola Davis (haven't seen any of the other four, but please no Streep)
No opinion on supporting actor
Jessica Chastain (Bejo and Spencer both acceptable)

Midnight in Paris for Screenplay
Moneyball for Adapted (or Tinker Tailor)

That's all I care about right now.

DamnYankees: No opinion on supporting actor


Good calls across the board, but for Best Supporting Actor, it comes down to two nominees: Christopher Plummer for Beginners and Max von Sydow for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Both are 82 years old and neither one has won an Oscar.

Plummer has the edge since he knocked down every award in his path.

You can probably bank on Plummer winning, unless the Academy feels particularly sentimental for von Sydow.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Good calls across the board, but for Best Supporting Actor, it comes down to two nominees: Christopher Plummer for Beginners and Max von Sydow for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.


Yeah, I just haven't seen either of those movies. The only actor on that list I've seen is Jonah Hill, and he really shouldn't win.
 
2012-02-26 02:51:45 PM
The Artist-Hazanavicius-Dujardin-Davis-Plummer-Spencer. And Midnight in Paris and The Descendants for the screenplay awards. Good thing I liked The Artist, this is going to be one boring night.

robsul82: this is going to be one boring night.


It's just been a terrible year for film, unfortunately.
 
2012-02-26 03:05:11 PM
the artist hasn't done shiat since purple rain. why is he even in the discussion?

DamnYankees: Yeah, I just haven't seen either of those movies. The only actor on that list I've seen is Jonah Hill, and he really shouldn't win.


Yeah, I don't think you have anything to worry about there!

I'd put everyone else in the category above Jonah Hill at this point.

I think the worst Academy Award nominee for best picture ever was Dr. Dolittle.

I loved The Artist, but it totally appealed to my sappy nostalgia and dopey romanticism. The Asta-type pooch in that movie deserved a best supporting actor nod IMHO.

I don't see why you need the word "but" in that sentence. There's nothing wrong with appealing to nostalgia and dopey romanticism.

Along those same lines, The Greatest Show on Earth or Around the World in 80 Days could be the worst Best Picture winners.

Will I care enough to watch the Oscars?
 
2012-02-26 04:08:45 PM
I thought the Oscars started at 7 EST or is that just when the preshow starts on ABC?
 
2012-02-26 04:15:22 PM
Anybody have a reliable stream for it?

Totally disagree about Viola Davis. Best actress should be Michelle Williams, hands down.
 
2012-02-26 05:25:49 PM
It's raining in Florida. Could go either way, but I think they're gonna go for it. At some point.
 
2012-02-26 05:39:59 PM
I want Moneyball to win so that means it'll be The Artist.

Want Von Sydow to win so that means it'll be Plummer.

Cos that's how the Oscars work. Finally figured it out.

I haven't seen the movie, but I like Williams. Wouldnt mind if she won.

I'd like to see Gary Oldman win even though I haven't seen it. I guess they really shouldn't give out awards for bodies of work but since they do it all the time anyway, Oldman deserves it.
 
2012-02-26 06:14:18 PM
I really hope they bring the Jack Russell from The Artist, and the Thoroughbred from Warhorse.

In a surprise move, the best film award will be given to Adele, just to round out the year for her.

Brilliant, sir.

I currently have the EOnline feed up, it sucks. I need a better pre-show feed.
 
2012-02-26 06:43:16 PM
Yeah, OK. I'll be back later. I don't think I've seen even one of the movies nominated for anything.

Rooney Mara's dress is going to fly away with her boobies.

And speaking of boobies, DAMN Viola Davis has a great rack.

She should have won last year for Blue Valentine IMHO.

Tough call for us Canucks. Plummer is a Canadian boy but Max WAS in Strange Brew with the Mackenzie Brothers. It's a toss up.
 
2012-02-26 06:53:34 PM
ABC Family has the movie that should have won best picture in 1994: Lion King.

Okay, I'm kidding. No way it could have beaten the top movie Pulp Fiction. But it is still a good movie.

They often do the "body of work" Oscar. Martin Scorsese did not win Best Director for "The Departed" so much as he won it for "Raging Bull" or "Goodfellas." Paul Newman did not win Best Actor for "The Color of Money" so much as he won it for "Cool Hand Luke" or "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
