Live Oscar Blog! Join me all night!

Join me all night as I live blog the Oscars. Tune in for winners, losers, speeches and tributes. See how I did in my picks. I’ve never done better than 50%. It’s been a record breaking year for me at the movies, could I beat that. I’m hoping for at least a D -. I’ll be updating throughout the show. Join for the 82nd Annual Academy Award Ceremony!

I will post the categories as they are announced. The winner will appear in green. If it matches my pick, that will be all that appears. If I guessed wrong, I’ll post what was my pick in red.

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin co-host the 82nd Annual Oscars

1941-

Oh the red carpet I remember being there a couple years ago. Got George Clooney’s autograph. Almost got Will Smith’s. Met LA Times columnist Joel Stein. Mark McGrath yelled “ROCK ON!” at me. Good times. I’ll go back one of these days.

2007-

Oh Zac Efron, that’ll pretty much be the last time you’re that close to an Oscar. Unless you start dating Helen Mirren.

2010-

I’d give Matt Damon $10 if he says “SUCK IT AFFLECK!”

2014-

Oh… so they’re calling Jennifer Lopez an actress now…

2015

I like that Ferris Bueller rode a horse to the Oscars. OH! That’s his wife. Why did Ferris Bueller marry a horse?

2022-

Really? Miley Cyrus is there? Why?

2023-

Glad that the Dude is at the Oscars. It would be great if he had a white russian with him. Or if he loses, he leaves to go bowling.

2025

Really Sherri Shephard? Taylor Lautner is the most famous werewolf in cinema history? What about Teen Wolf? Shit, what about Teen Wolf, Too?

2031

It was nice that they gave the 8 people who won’t win a chance to stand on the Oscar stage.

2032

Holy crap… an NPH opening number. That’s awesome!

2034-

Great entrance Martin and Baldwin.

2037

These guys are great. Loving the opening monologue.

2039-

Samuel L. Jackson was next to Woody Harrelson’s wife. Holy crap. This is going to be awesome.

2048

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds

I knew it! I knew it! I would have rioted if he had lost. He’s a class act. I like him.

2100-

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE:

Up

I wish Ed Asner had gone up there to accept the Oscar. But Pete’s giving a great speech.

2103

BEST ORIGINAL SONG:

Ryan Bingham & T-Bone Burnett “The Weary Kind” from Crazy Heart

Such a damn good song. I highly recommend you take a listen.

2115

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

The Hurt Locker

Inglourious Basterds

This marks my first loss of the night. What the hell, Quentin? You couldn’t snake a writing Oscar from that guy?

2117-

It’s good to see these two up there. Molly and Matthew. Claire and Ferris. Good times. Touching tribute. Well said, both of you.

2121-

Does that mean he won’t be making the “In Memoriam” tribute? This beats any other tribute. Good show. Good to see the brat pack back together. Beautiful.

2131-

BEST SHORT FILM, ANIMATED

Logorama

Wallace & Gromit in ‘A Matter of Loaf & Death’

2134

BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT

Music by Prudence

2136

BEST SHORT FILM, LIVE ACTION

The New Tenants

Considering I had no idea where I was gonna go with that, I did surprisingly well in the Short Film categories. 2 for 3, not bad if I do say so myself.

2140

BEST MAKE-UP

Star Trek

I figured if Star Trek was going to get anything out of it’s tech heavy nominations, it would have to be in the one category it’s not up against Avatar.

2150

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

It was a good script, and had the advantage being an obvious adaptation. It’s in the title. CHEATERS!

2154

A couple of legends. Well deserved standing ovation for Corman and Bacall!

2200

BEST ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE

Monique for Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

I’m just glad I went with the press instead of my gut on this one. I originally went with Anna Kendrick. Changed it last minute.

2205

BEST ART DIRECTION

Avatar

It’s going to do well in the tech awards. Of course. I doubt it’ll take director or picture though.

2211

BEST COSTUME DESIGN

The Young Victoria

Coco avant Chanel

Period pieces are always a safe bet in this category. I bet on the one about a fashion designer. Should have gone with the long dead monarch.

2218

Kristen Stewart on stage.  Cue awkward….. NOW!

2222

Disappointed by the complete lack of Romero in the horror tribute. There wasn’t good overall zombie representation.

2225

BEST SOUND EDITING

The Hurt Locker

Star Trek

BEST SOUND MIXING

The Hurt Locker

Star Trek

I was sure Star Trek would take sound. But Hurt Locker was damn good, so I’m really only pissed that it messes with my win count.

2228

Is there anyone more beautiful than Elizabeth Banks? No, I don’t think so.

2236

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY

Avatar

For a guy with a foreign sounding name, he speaks decent English.

2240

A classy, well done, tribute. Dug the James Taylor. But why the hell was Michael Jackson in there?

2251

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

Up

Avatar

I realized halfway through the dance montage that I should have gone with Up. Stupid, stupid me for thinking Avatar would get an artistic award.

2255

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS

Avatar

That’s right, you stick to tech awards.

2304

BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

The Cove

I’m glad that dolphin slaughter is trendier than the food industry.

2309

BEST EDITING

The Hurt Locker

Inglourious Basterds

Normally the Academy gets a raging mega huge boner for Nazis. WTF is with Hurt Locker beating Inglourious Basterds in like… everything.

2316

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

El secreto de sus ojos

Das weisse Band

Another Nazi reference coming now: Couldn’t go with Germany, the birthplace of Nazi’s, so you went with Argentina, the Third Reich’s retirement community.

2334

BEST ACTOR IN A LEAD ROLE

Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart

Way to go Jeff! You done your dad proud. And The Dude! And I really do think he’s high.

2348

BEST ACTRESS IN A LEAD ROLE

Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side

Carey Mulligan in An Education

I figured that if there was gonna be a curve ball category this year, it would be Lead Actress. I was wrong. Should have gone with the press. Even if the press was wrong.

2355

BEST DIRECTOR

Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker

Congratulations Kathryn, for being the first female best director winner. You really deserved it. Quentin, maybe next time. It took Scorsese 30 damn years to get his.

2359

BEST PICTURE

The Hurt Locker

After winning 5 other Oscars, of course it was gonna take home best picture. Good job. Great film. I went 15 for 24. 63%.
