Agree, I just can’t imagine how frustrating it was for his colleague 😞

The most famous instance of this was probably when "Falling Slowly" won best song in 2008 and Glen Hansard talked through the entire speech.  After the commercial break Jon Stewart brought out Marketa Irglova so she could give her thank yous

Popular selection!  Parasite really stuck with me.  I keep thinking about different aspects of it even several weeks after I saw it.

I'm happy for Parasite winning Best International but now I'm afraid it won't win Best Picture.  That's ok though, they done great tonight.

And he's ready to drink!  I love it!

Okay, I haven't seen any movies this year (don't hate me...), but saying he was going to get a drink in English has made me love him!

Parasite was a great movie, but it seems unfair for it to be in both best international film and best picture. I thought the same thing last year with Roma. But I guess people submit whatever they qualify for. It was certainly a well deserved win.

I dunno, ROMA fell just short of Best Picture last year, maybe this year PARASITE will make it across the line.  🙂

Only on a Weinstein set.

Well, I'm loving this Elton John song and I don't care who knows it.

I'm dancing and typing, about to drop the laptop

Bong is so supportive of his people. He must be wonderful to work with. 

He really is. He's not difficult to work with, even with the reputation that he's a hard core control freak.

My parents got to see Elton in his recent tour a few months ago and they haven’t stopped talking about it! 

I saw him in Vegas a few years ago and he was great! But honestly I have no idea what the hell is going on right now.

That might be cultural though. I have read that Asian directors in general expect/demand more respect from the cast and crew, and directors like Ang Lee have said that it was a big culture shock to direct in Hollywood where movies are an assembly of moving parts. Akira Kurosawa was infamous for terrorizing his sets.

I don't think it's any different from animated films also nominated for Best Picture - Beauty & the Beast, Up, Toy Story 3, etc.

Okay, there's NO way they are wrapping this up in 30 minutes. 

I hope not.  I have about 45 minutes more wine to drink.

Okay, I love this American Idol commercial (homage to Almost Famous) with "Tiny Dancer"!  That song will never get old for me.

Folks we're going into overtime.

As usual.  I don't know why they don't just schedule an extra 30 minutes.  Oh, wait, I do know -- if they scheduled 30 extra minutes, they'd still run 30 minutes long!
