Open Caption: The Academy Awards

Here it is, faithful Open Captioners of TV.com: the moment you've all been waiting for. (And just because it arrives daily doesn't mean you should be stripped of your right to squirm with anticipation.) Here are the winners from yesterday's Person of Interest-themed contest:


From crazylegs99:
POI: "Who are you?"
Reese: "I'm Batma---I mean Reese. My name is Reese."


From ben45tpy:
POI: "Trading's simple. It's all about playing the numbers."
Reese: "I've seen your number. It doesn't look good."


From shre123:
POI: "You just wait till we get back home. I'll show you! The guy you're working for used to be on this crazy show about some island that can move and sh*t!"


Today's Image: The 84th Annual Academy Awards

Oh yeah, I went there. If the Oscars are going to make my life harder by shutting down one of the biggest through-streets in Hollywood three days before the event airs live on television, then I'm going to take every possible opportunity to jab at it. Besides, making fun of celebrities is fun! People make a living off this stuff! And you're going to need some practice if you're still thinking about kicking off that celeb-bashing blogging career you keep talking about.

Anyway, though I love Billy Crystal, I'm already getting a kick out of all the things he must be thinking about the other Academy Award participants... Especially as he's running down the street, panicked, in this promo shot below. Post your best caption ideas in the comments! And keep an eye out for Price's photo recap of the ceremony this Monday, February 27!

Oh no, the entire city is blacked out. Well, atleast we will have an excuse for the low ratings of the Oscars.

The Academy certainly went with much higher brow nominees this year which I think will lose them a large portion of their young audience. After doing better at being in touch with the public the past two years, these stiff nominees just fall flat. I usually have something in common with the choice but not this year- if the contenders seem stuffy to you, check out my own Top 10 Movie Picks of 2011 at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/01/top-10-movie-picks-of-2011.html where you won't see a single of the Academy's nominees for Best Picture but you will get some movie artwork I drew up as well as the reviews!

"Why are we asking Billy to do this for the millionth time?"



"Because he's the host the Oscars need right now, but not the one they deserve. So we'll ask him, because he can do a passable job of it without pissing anyone off. Because he's not our ideal host. He's a safe mainstay, a man with nothing better to do... a Crystal Knight."

P.S -

Billy Crystal --- This year's MC for the Oscars.

So that would make him the Real Curly MC!

I'm more famous than the following people I'm spoofing:

Val Kilmer - definately, check.

Michael Keaton- it was close for a while, but check.

Christian Bale - check, and my extras like me more.

Kevin Conroy - who? voice actors don't count, check.

George Clooney - I might have to give him that one.

Adam West - I would Adam a batjob right now if he were he, I love that guy.



What's a batjob?



If you gotta ask, you don't want one.
