Live-blogging Hollywood's Grandest Back-patting, the Oscars!

It's the day that Anne Hathaway has been waiting for all her life! The 85th Annual Academy Awards, where one lucky movie will be able to change the accolade on its DVD box art from "Academy Award Best Picture Nominee" to "Winner of Best Picture." Where it's not about what's on the inside, but what's on the outside! Where dreams are made for winners, and losers are granted new fodder for their nightmares! Where the tears of celebrities who find themselves overwhelmed by emotion are collected in jars and used to power Michael Bay's car!

I'll be watching the ceremony right along with you, live-blogging the good and the bad in real-ish time. Because this is a live blog, please excuse the typos and incohesive thoughts. But first, let's start this off with a poll:



MacFarlane's Opening

A lot of people wondered why the Family Guy creator was chosen to host Hollywood's biggest night, but after this opening set of jokes, I think it's obvious: The Oscars have no idea what they are anymore. Seth didn't come out singing a big dancing number, opting instead for a standup set that called out Tommy Lee Jones' inability to do what he humans call "laughing," and then a video screen with William Shatner came down from the sky and the show went into this bit about Seth being the worst Oscars host ever. Maybe they're right, because it wasn't long before he made a gay joke and then got borderline racist by saying Denzel Washington was in The Nutty Professor movies and yikes, Seth! You couldn't grow up for one night? The guy sang a song about seeing celebrity boobs, for crying out loud.

And THEN he sang "The Way You Look Tonight" while Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron danced like that boring part from Singing in the Rain. Then there was another bit with Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, also dancing and singing, and at this point, everything stopped making sense. Absolutely bizarre! And therefore kind of amazing because of its terrible-ness? What am I watching? Are you guys seeing the same thing here? Was that 19 minutes of the weirdest Oscar opening ever?


Best Supporting Actor

That nice lady from The Help handed out the award to Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained, officially solidifying him as a big player in the world of Supporting Actors. But did you see Tommy Lee Jones' wig in Lincoln? If that thing doesn't get an award by the time this is over, tonight will have been a big waste of time. Also, Quentin Tarantino is looking more and more like a real-life caricature drawing of himself from 10 years ago. Was that a gypsy who drew him on Venice Beach, and did that gypsy throw in a curse on the side?


Best Animated Short Film, Best Animated Feature Film

Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy are genuinely funny people, so to see them come out and do a bit about character voices that was really just the two of them talking to each other was confusing. But to do a bit that had zero jokes with such confidence was truly inspiring to all actors who hope to be award presenters someday. Oh, Paperman won for Best Animated Short Film, and Brave won Best Animated Feature Film.

Oh hey, The Walking Dead is on right now. You should go watch that instead. Seriously.



Best Visual Effects, Cinematography

The men of The Avengers came out to give out this award, and when you see them on a stage wearing suits, you realize, "Hey these guys aren't that super at all! I could totally beat them up." Hollywood is all lies. Anyway, Future Legolas won the award for Best Cinematography for Life of Pi, and a bunch of dudes won Best Visual Effects for Life of Pi. And then the orchestra played a LOUD version of the Jaws theme to play them off. It was mean, but hey Visual Effects guys, YOU'RE VISUAL EFFECTS GUYS! Know your role in this delicate ecosystem: Stay behind the scenes and don't look Clooney in the eye.



Best Costume Design, Makeup and Hair Design

Now things are smokin'! Costume Design, y'all! Anna Koreninaniniaina wins! Les Miserables won for Makeup and Hairstyling because they got "freshly scalped whore" PERFECT. Is this thing over yet? The two ladies who won it were delightful, though, and let's give credit to them, they kept their speeches short to something like, "Thanks. Family." That's knowing your place. Take a lesson, Life of Pi jerks.


James Bond movies tribute

Hollywood celebrates 2,500 years of James Bond movies with a clip piece featuring moments from the Bond films (as if the annual Bond movie that's released each year wasn't enough), including Halle Berry jumping out of the water and sending lots of business to Beverly Hills plastic surgeons. Then Shirley Bassey came out and nearly ate the microphone while singing "Goldfinger." Sorry Adele! There's a new old queen in town!


Hey, Enlightened is on, East Coast! You should be watching that.


Best Live-Action Short Film, Best Documentary Short Subject

Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx hand out the Best Short Film award to Curfew. Best Documentary Short Subject went to Inocente and the woman who made the speech nervously mumbled like crazy! That was an authentic Hollywood moment, except it was just Documentary Short Subject so I'm not sure it counts.



Best Documentary Feature

Ben Affleck pulled an envelope out of his beard and gave an award to Searching for Sugar Man for Best Documentary. I actually saw this movie and can honestly say it's fantastic. And it's a feel-good story! Unlike all those others. Man, I think I lost three years of my life watching all those depressing clips. Lighten up, documentaries! Also, another Jaws musical play-off for long acceptance speeches. Rude.


Best Foreign Language Film

Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Garner gave Best Movie You Have to Read to Amour, representing Austria. The guy who made the speech was the least Hollywood person on stage so far and totally rocked it. He didn't care. He didn't care at all.


A tribute to musicals!

Bathroom break!




Technical Awards flashback

The Oscars' way of saying, "You do great work, nerds."


Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing

Oh God, we knew it was coming and it was still terrible. Ted the foul-mouthed bear came out and asked where the orgy was while Mark Wahlberg played along and fulfilled his final commitment to that movie. Les Miserables won the award, and the guys who won were very proud. And Anne Hathaway looked like she was going to have a heart attack, her proudness was that intense. But Ted wasn't done being Ted, so he made the centuries-old "Jewish people run Hollywood" joke. I hate this bear. But holy crap guys, the Sound Editing award was a TIE because the Academy couldn't decide which long-haired blonde guy should win. I think Argo and Skyfall took something home.


Best Supporting Actress

Wow, the Oscars just got classed up when Christopher Plummer came out. This is the first smidge of respect the ceremony has had. If you don't love Christopher Plummer then you're dumb—fact. Anne Hathaway won, and started her speech with "It came true..." Now I think I understand why there's backlash against her. But I'll admit here that part of my wedding vows included "going to see Les Miserables" and she killed it in that bit. You know, the one where she sang? Anyway, we also went to the same college and I interviewed her and she was nice so I can't hate on her. Just me alone on that island, though.


Best Editing

Sandra Bullock (Miss Congeniality) came out and handed out the Best Editing award to Argo. She made a joke about a ham hock, which was probably the best ham-hock joke of the night. Nice one, Sandra! Then she tried to open up the envelope and it was difficult! I bet that asshole Ted pranked her.


Adele sings!

Oh like I'm going to say something bad about Adele. I'm smarter than that. She sang "Skyfall" and all the woodland creatures stopped what they were doing and just stared in awe.


Production Design

Kristen Stewart's case of debilitating constipation continued, as she still couldn't muster the strength to look like she gave a fuck. Thankfully, Daniel Radcliffe was chipper as the sun is hot. Stewart then threw the award at the guy who Production Designed Lincoln before he even got to the stage so she could get back to smoking cigarettes.


The Governor's Awards

Salma Hayek came out in the goldest neck brace ever and let everyone know that four guys won awards the other day for, let's say, "intangible" contributions to movies. One dude was honored for being really good at honoring others, seriously.


In Memoriam, or "Oh Right, That Guy Died This Year"

Look out Christopher Plummer, George Clooney is bringing some class to this joint, too! Seriously, we should put him in a time capsule or something because he's really the best thing about the human species. The reel itself was actually solid, not going for over-sentimental heart-tugging but preferring self-satisfied bravado thanks to a performance by Mecha Streisand singing "Memories," from her hit film The Memorizing. Just the way Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys wanted to be remembered.


Best Original Score, Best Original Song

Have you heard the score for Beasts of the Southern Wild? Well, it belonged here. Criminal! Out came the cast of Chicago (Richard Gere, Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Queen Latifah) and except for Latifah, it was smug overload! At least try to pretend you aren't better than us, guys! Ugh. Anyway, Life of Pi won best score. Adele's "Skyfall" won for best original song. Snooze. Adele even cries with a British accent.


Best Original Screenplay, Best Adapted Screenplay

Dustin Hoffman rode in on the back of Charlize Theron to hand out some writing awards, and this is the part of the broadcast where they just rush out awards because the timing is all jacked up. So let's quicken this up: Argo won for Best Adapted Screenplay and the guy looked like Stifler from American Pie. Quentin Tarantino won Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained and was his typical Quentin self, signing off with a "Peace out" and looking redder than W.C. Field's nose. He also said this was the year of the writers, which we all know is bullshit, but nice try Quentin. Then there was a commercial for the Galaxy with Tim Burton, and I realized that he stole Bono's sunglasses.



Best Director

Michael Douglas and Jane Fonda handed out the Best Director award, which went to Ang Lee for Life of Pi. Ang Lee is ADORABLE. He thanked his agent because he felt like he had to, not because he wanted to. Ang Lee is METAL. Best Director for Life of Pi, I guess that means it's winning Best Picture?


Best Actress

That guy from The Artist handed out the award and by golly if he didn't do the best work with his teleprompter material! Maybe it was just his accent, but maybe he should host next year. The award went to Jennifer Lawrence for The Hunger Games Silver Linings Playbook, and she fell on the way up to the stage because her dress was like 100 Hollywood starlets wide. She's a charmer, this one; she was genuinely shocked that she won. Can she be my favorite actress even though I've never seen one of her movies? Can I do that?


Oscars 2013 Red Carpet Photos


Best Yeller

Meryl Streep is still a goddess among us Earth trash, and she gave the Best Actor award to Daniel Day-Lewis. Lewis has won so many of these awards that he used the time to crack wise, and said that he was supposed to play Margaret Thatcher and Streep was supposed to play Lincoln. Then he went earnest, thanking his fellow nominees, his woman, and the Lincoln crew, including Abraham Lincoln! He crushed that speech. You win, Daniel! YOU WIN!


Best Picture

Jack Nicholson and his funky glasses and goofy grin came out and tag-teamed the announcement of Best Picture with MICHELLE FRICKIN' OBAMA and her private Rope Brigade via FaceTime! It was weird, but Michelle is nothing short of amazing and I like to think that if things had gone differently, we would be dating and running a mom-and-pop hardware store. Anyway, Argo won, which meant that Bryan Cranston got to go up on stage at the Academy Awards. Yes! Take that, Lincoln. Then Seth MacFarlane and Kristin Chenoweth sang a song for the losers and the audience stampeded out the door so they wouldn't have to listen to it and I changed the channel PHEW. They may still be singing, I dunno. Thanks for watching the Oscars with me! Now go watch The Walking Dead!

I can't believe the back lash to Seth. I thought he was great. I laughed at the Boob song it was very Monty Pythonesque (I'm a female and was not offended at all). So glad ARGO won it's a fabulous film, just a shame Affleck wasnt nominated for Director. But as they say you can't please everyone all of the time.

I watch the Oscars for the show itself and not for the hosts. But, kick out Seth! Get back Hugh Jackman for next year!

Is this site overrun by teens or something? Jennifer Lawrence winning was nothing short of a slap in the face to the other amazing nominees. Jessica Chastain was robbed, I tell ya!

Btw, didn't you see Kristen's crutches? She looked like she did because her foot was injured. But I wouldn't hold it against her anyway since she's not fake.

Tim, I'm with you about Anne Hathaway. I love that woman. Lewis gave the best speech.

I found Jennifer Lawrence flipping off the press backstage to be a huge turnoff, and this was after I found her trip up the stairs to be so endearing! But I hated her in Hunger Games (loved her in Silver Linings), so I have been hugely wishy washy with her ever since she started to show up a lot. Meh. Guess I'm back to neutral.

Favorite part was this: "Kristen Stewart's case of debilitating constipation continued, as she still couldn't muster the strength to look like she gave a fuck. Thankfully, Daniel Radcliffe was chipper as the sun is hot. Stewart then threw the award at the guy who Production Designed Lincoln before he even got to the stage so she could get back to smoking cigarettes."

Haha. Thank you, Tim, for saying what I was thinking. Daniel really did to seem to be trying to make up for Kristen's lack of caring. I almost wanted to pat his head, but then I remembered his awkward musical number, so I was like, "Hm. How about just a good job?"

Seth MacFarlane held his own...not very remarkable as live performance goes, but not bad for somebody who makes a living writing and doing voice-work. What I'd like to know is what on earth was wrong with Kristen Stewart, she looked absolutely STONED. Has she been in rehab lately, and they just let her out for the night? I mean seriously...focus your eyes, inflect your voice, and maybe even smile, robot-girl!

Loved Seth as the host. During the last half I decided to just record it so I could stop and watch The Walking Dead (eh) and then came back and watched only the parts he was in. I actually thought one of the funnier skits was the one with the nazi doing the scene from The Sound of Music right before Christopher Plummer came on. The actor playing the nazi's over-the-top exclamation and Seth's reaction were essentially a Family Guy Flashback Skit.

I felt he was held back by the venue and would love to see him host something where he can completely cut loose. HBO needs an awards show maybe...

Say what you will about Seth as a host, Everyone is entitled to thier own opinion. He earned my respect for actually staying and HOSTING the show. There was hardly a commercial break or a presenter that he was not there to guide. He showed up and did the work, while there were some years you'd go a full hour w/o seeing the host.

Funny read, Tim.

I only watched the latter half because there was more interesting TV on. I just saw Argo this weekend and I thought it was good, but not best movie of the year. I don't think that I can love Jennifer Lawrence any more than I could but yet she keeps being amazing. Next year they should haul in Tina and Amy to do the show.

I thought Seth did fine. Yes, there were crude jokes, but what would you expect from the guy who does Family Guy and Ted? He looked very comfortable on stage and handled the hosting duties very well. He's a very good singer, so that helped. I liked the musical numbers (OK, the boob one was over the top), but highlighting music this year makes me even more upset they didn't even have last year's 2 best song nominees performed at all. Yet they had time for Cirque du Soleil. Ridiculous.

In all honesty, I watched it for the Seth MacFarlane jokes from the last time he hosted SNL and the Roast series. But where are the jokes that made him this time round. Seems he self censored himself into being just an announcer. It was actually painful to watch. Ah well. It's over and good riddance!

I just wanted to hurl my remote at the TV each and every time MacFarlane showed up and opened his mouth. I'm not usually a prude, I don't get offended about everything, but this man just represents everything wrong about entertainment today. His show Family Guy, in my opinion, single-handedly destroyed television.

Forgive me if I don't find rape jokes funny.

The most terrible person that evening was Anne Hathaway. Self explanatory.
And I loved how McFarlane destroyed the Oscars(or at least ruined the evening for 75% of the audience), way more entertaining than Franco and Crystal f.e., the most funny thing being the smug audience silenced by Seth's painful-to-watch performance. WTG, Seth!
Was also pretty o.k. with most of the wins, very spread amongst the nominees, no film "dominated" the night. Maybe Lincoln was a little bit slighted but thankfully this ZeroDarkThirty crap wasn't winning anything but the crappy sound-editing(?) Oscar.

Yes, you can have Lawrence as your favorite actress without seeing any of her movies. You can be exactly as all of those pre-teens fans out there who think they have a 'great' concept in films and all they're basing their 'criteria' is that Hunger Games movie -or twilight reborn as many people are calling it-.
Or you can be like the Oscars, that have been trying to get 'young audience' for a few years now but havent got a clue how to do it. Finally they came up with the 'bright' idea of giving an Oscar to a teen sweetheart, no matter the talent. Boy! They I was afraid they were even going to throw in Kristen too to pump it up even more!
Anyway, Chastain, Watts and Riva's amazing work went to hell, but the 'Academy' got viewers! so Yay Industry!

The Hunger Games is nothing like Twilight and Jennifer Lawrence is a fantastic actress. I'm neither a teenager nor a Twihard, and I have seen both of Jennifer's Oscar nominated performances. She was AMAZING in Winter's Bone, and as for Silver Lining's Playbook, the Oscar was well deserved. She has a scene in that movie where she goes toe-to-toe with De Niro and that scene alone was Oscar-worthy. Nobody's work went to hell but there can only be one winner and lucky for J. Lawrence she received the most votes.

I will openly admit that I thought the "Boobs" song was funny (Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actresses, but how true was that part about her, huh?), but I REALLY wish it were on later. My young daughters asked to stay up to see at least the first 1/2-hour and I, thinking that 8:30 was still part of "Family Hour", let them. And, while I thought that he had a phenomenal singing voice, someone should tell him that laughing at his own jokes is lame. I also take personal issue with the comment above about the Governors' Awards. One of the recipients, Hal Needham, single-handedly changed the entire Stuntman profession, revolutionizing the entire Action Movie genre by coming up with innovations that made stunts both safer and more spectacular. WTG, Hal!

I JUST watched the Oscars. Preferred to watch The walking dead last night instead. Well, compared with last year DISAPPOINTING wins, this year I have to say, I was happy with pretty much everyone winning. Plus, very happy about Tarantino and Anne Hathaway! The only wins I wasn't too convinced they were worth it, were best animated short, The Simpsons should have won. Best leading actor, Daniel Day Lewis has won enough already if you ask me. Hugh Jackman should have won that one. And last but not least, Argo for best picture? Seriously? Yes, I really liked the film, but best picture?

Yep Jennifer Lawrence can be your favorite actress even if you haven't seen any of her movie. She's just that amazing.
As a French who sees Les Miz as the equivalent of what-if-the-French-(terrible)-musical-Roméo-et-Juliette-had-made-it-to-the-big-screen-and-we-pretended-it's-a-big-deal, I'm meanly delighted that they didn't win anything important apart from Supporting Actress which was, sadly, a given.

Kinda disappointed the Beast of the Southern Wild didn't get ANYTHING!

Ok, the Oscars have been going on for 85 years now. Thats great, it still doesnt justify them as anything more than an overpriced soiree of self-congratulation. These people are actors. The fact that they have jobs and that people watch the shows and films they make should be honour enough for them. Same goes for all the other award shows.
There are people out there who dont have jobs. There are people out there who risk their lives in their jobs, and who save lives, and who make an actual real difference in the world, and yet, in this age of celebrity-obsessed gossip-mongering, what gets talked about most is who wore what, who's been spotted with who, and who gets an award for pretending to be someone else. Shame.

...And then there are the people like you that just NEED to make a stink about everything to feel validated. Obviously there are many people out there that make much more of a contribution to society than many of the actors at the Oscars. However, are you aware that there are thousands of policeman/fireman/doctors to every talented actor? Much like any professional athlete, these people are idolized for their ability to portray characters that few others are able to.

Jennifer Lawrence was so great! I love her dress, I love the way she stumbled on her way to recieving the award. Everything she does is amazing. I LOVE HER! <<< XD

I'm a bit dissapointed, "Life of Pi" took all the awards though, "Silver Linings Playbook" deserved more recognition..Also Bradley Cooper should have gotten the oscar for best actor...I'm pretty sure that guy that won also won last year. That's rather unfair, I don't think he deserved the award as much as Bradley did.

He didn't win last year, the guy who presented Jennifer Lawrence her award won last year. Daniel Day Lewis has won twice before but hasn't won since 2008. Bradley Cooper was great in SLP but he wasn't as good as Hugh Jackman and Daniel Day-Lewis. The only category I genuinely felt like SLP was robbed in was writing. Argo has a horrible script.

i dont think i've ever really watched it before, but my wife decided to put it on, and well crap, i started watching it, and the highlight of the night for me was bill shatner in his uniform, the man STILL looks good in it just like the last time he had it on, yes i proudly admit, i am a die hard trek fan :)

Haha this was amusing, I'm glad I don't have to watch the Oscars now your coverage was enough and probably a lot funnier than anything Seth McFarlene did on the night.

Phew, I'm lucky I didn't bet money on this year's winners, I would have lost big. I really messed up my predictions. Last year I did pretty good, almost 4/5 of my guesses were right. But this year I only had a few right in all the categories. This year, in the more important categories, my only correct pick was Daniel "The Machine" Day-Lewis.
