Once again I have failed to see ANY of the Oscar nominated shorts, continuing over a decade of tradition.

cookiefleck: Mistymtnhop: Mega Steve: seadoo2006: Wow, where the hell was Woody Allen? He stood up the Oscars?

Mr. Bigshot is too good for the Oscars now, I suppose. What would his mother say?

I have never, ever understood the Woody Allen appeal.

Same here.. the nervous, anxious adopted daughter banging thing never sat well with me.


The dueling scene in Love and Death.

The shoe store scene in Sleeper.

Walken in Annie Hall.

The committing suicide line in Take the Money and Run.

The Greg the Bunny parody of Annie Hall.

Woody has never attended a single Oscars.....nor any award show for that matter.


Wrong. He attended in 2002.

skinink: coco ebert: skinink: "Margin Call". One of the better movies last year that hardly anyone saw.
And Midnight in Paris was not so good. Owen was just a younger version of a typical Woody Allen character.

I'm a film nut and I've never even heard of "Margin Call". Wat?

It's a fictional account of the market crash from 2009 or 2010. It's got a great cast and is worth seeing. Although it is about the financial market they go easy on the terms and use just enough to let you know what's happening without making it a movie only insiders understand. You should like it. Go rent it.


Oh, that's something I would love! I actually heard about that, but thought it was an HBO film.

brigid_fitch: Off the top of my head, Precious won best original but didn't win best picture.


Hurt Locker won the original screenplay that year.

But as others have pointed out, Titanic and Million Dollar Baby were exceptions

Bacontastesgood: Uranus Megahertz: Googled the sound issue

The going theory on the audio issues is a problem with the 5.1 folddown to stereo. A minor theory developing is a speaker processor presenting comb filtering issues.

Have no idea what that means

Somebody farked up is what it means. Like when they greenlit Sucker Punch.


I think that has to be the problem ... I'm watching in DD 5.1 and I can't hear any of the audio stuff other people are complaining about.

LOL @ Scorsese shots ... bahahahahaha

Give it up, man. Whateverinthehell you're trying to do. The moment has passed.

You can go back and revise and extend your remarks tomorrow morning.


Yea, I gave up - was just trying to point out that the other guy that one with Dean Pelton and the guy that spoke was one of the Germans from the movie 'Beerfest'. /fail

HBO had their own about the market crash in general, for all the companies, with the fed involvement.

Triumph: SharkTrager: Triumph: Nice of them to remind Bill Murray that he's never won.

Honest question. How many truly Oscar worthy performances has he had? I like him, but I can't think of a single time I'd say he was robbed.

He was nominated for Lost in Translation. Don't remember any other nods.


Didn't someone (one of the presenters) bring up the fact that he was robbed or that he looked upset that he actually lost that night? He definitely should have won over the fricking Mystic River Sean Penn nod.

Corner-cutting. They should have separate stereo and surround-sound mixers.

If only someone in the academy was a good sound engineer.

He has attended once since his first feature in 1966. Wow, do I have egg on my face.

A crappy Monday Night Raw thread can hit 1800 posts.

Mind you at least 150 of them are "Goddammit Vince, don't bury that guy again"

You know, it may seem trivial, but billions of dollars at at stake. This is a glitzy awards ceremony, yes, but at its heart, it's about business.
