The Annual Academy Awards Topic

Recommended Posts

Carey is so happy and proud of Emerald, sniff. I love the detail of the Oscar being cold and her childhood fantasy of marrying Zack Morris.

At least the seats look more roomy and comfortable unlike the usual theater seats during a normal year.

Promising Young Woman takes screenplay, so I'm off to a good start on my Oscar pool!

I like Sorkin's work well enough, but that backstory is making me picturing behind a concession stand, somehow still finding a way to go on a five minute speech/rant, while he serves customers their popcorn and drinks.

Union Station is STUNNING

It really is.   I was there a couple of years ago and just love the architecture and decor!

This show looks like it's on film as opposed to...live on video?  Whatever it usually looks like.  I like it.

I'm guessing nobody had "Zack Morris" on their bingo card  for tonight. Lol

This awards show is very much like the traditional Golden Globes. It's not a bad thing.

Waaaay too chit chatty presentation format. 

It's so confusing - I can't follow it at all. I thought Regina was hosting until she said "and the oscar goes to".

Emerald Fennel is adorable.

I've got no problem with winners using their platform. Since I, a Black woman, don't have the luxury nor the option of "avoiding" certain issues,  as long as they're respectful, it won't bother me none.

Dude, that's kind of selfishly fucked up. Unless he and his co-writer decided he alone was going to speak, why would you talk this long knowing you're sharing the award with your co-writer.

Hopefully Florian and Christopher agreed that only one gets to speak, or the latter is going to be like "Not sure if we're going to reunite again after this, jerk!"

Is there anyone in Hollywood who didn't get a screenwriting credit for the Borat sequel??

That really was a mouthful. I thought Regina was still going to be reading that off come Tuesday.

Like Regina King, but not liking this presenting format or the winners.

It sort of reminds me of what the actors at the SAG awards do In the “And I’m an actor” intro. They did odd jobs before they hit it big. 
 

So the screenwriter got to dress up, sit in a London theater, get his name called, looks around...and sat down. At 115 am. Yeesh. Really hope they had a deal where the other one would be the one to talk.

Sesame Street is 50???!??!? Incidentally if I were to ever win an Oscar I’d like Oscar The Grouch to present it to me. 

Wait there’s a movie with Mads dancing around? 100% my jam.

Yeah they really need to address that. If they didn't agree in advance thats so messed up of him.

Another Round wins International, because while I'm sure all of the films were great in their own way, did any of them also have Drunk Dancing Mads Mikkelson?  I think not!

How many swans had to die for Laura Dern's gown?

I want to believe she wanted to be sustainable and repurposed Bjork’s dress.

So far I'm pretty comfortable with the Soderbergh-esque production design. 24 fps, letterbox, and having talent framed way left or right.  I do hope at some point we get a peek at director Glenn Weiss. Hopefully he's wearing shorts, a T-shirt and no shoes working out of his home office like the DNC Convention.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the director look like Hugh Grant?

The outside patio set is really pretty. I think this format would be more fun, drink outside until you have to come in and vice versa, do your categories then you can go outside.

These speeches need to be cut off, they are all so long, it's going to be 45 minutes over at this rate.

Laura Dern is a good actress and probably a nice person but every time she presents an award it sets my teeth on edge. Idk why exactly.

So, not hasten anyone in their moment but um, did this alternate format mean no time limit? Because these people so far have BEEN talking.

eta: Oh, I was wondering why Laura wasn't giving Supporting Actor per tradition, since she won Supporting Actress last year.

Even if there is a time limit they'd have been heartless to cut him off mid tribute to his daughter. Well, it's Hollywood but at least Heartless means bad PR so that would be enough to stop them.

Jesus Laura's little blurbs on each of the actor nominees is eating away at time. She reminds me of a first grade teacher being all "and we're all special and unique in our own way."
