I so wanted him to win :( His voice is one of the best voices in movie history. He was so good in this. Helena should’ve won Best supporting as well… it’s not “cleaning up” like I’d hoped.

I’m watching it for Mr. Darcy Colin Firth.

I also watched every year that Lord of the Rings was up for anything.

UGH! Cannot get away from this jerk! Hollywood isn’t satisified having him as POTUS, they have to inject him here, too.

My husband just laughed when I started cursing@ the screen.

Ask 90% of Americans who won the Oscars for any of the “major awards” last year.


Exactly. Who cares.

PappyD61 on February 27, 2011 at 10:20 PM

The American Wrecking Ball at the Oscars even pre-recorded…..bbbbblllllech. And I didn’t like when Bush did it either.


Politicians and Politics don’t belong at a celebration of…..

…MOVIES!!!!

Bush was at the Oscars once? Hollyweird invited him? If it was after 9/11 that makes sense. O here tonight made zilch.

Best movie kiss ever…..

Bridget Jone’s Diary.

Colin Firth is hot, as I already mentioned on the first page of this thread.

Knucklehead on February 27, 2011 at 10:29 PM

Teh won showed up? Campaign mode, I reckon. Not that he’s ever NOT been in that mode.

The Oscars show has no appeal for me as long as they feel they have to lecture us on politics, as if their profession makes them somehow more knowledgeable, competent or intelligent than the rest of us.

Knucklehead on February 27, 2011 at 10:29 PM

Conlin firth’s next movie is going to be pro-paleosimian/anti-Israel. I want him to win tonight…but he’s a leftist jerk.
I want Rush to adopt me.

annoyinglittletwerp on February 27, 2011 at 10:50 PM

Follow @jamesfranco on Twitter, he’s posting TONS of pics!

ProudPalinFan on February 27, 2011 at 10:52 PM

He posted this one backstage, with him, Anne and Billy Crystal. It’s like a dual hosting thing or something. He’s tweeting A LOT!

ProudPalinFan on February 27, 2011 at 10:56 PM

Holy crap! Fincher didn’t win?!

Doughboy on February 27, 2011 at 11:03 PM

Or, you could read the 24 page Donald Duck comic book the entire plot was lifted from. Still a fun movie, though.

DrAllecon on February 27, 2011 at 9:55 PM

*gasps, laughs* Thanks for the link. Inception was a very fun movie, and who can beat the awesome special effects. Just thought the story was just a leeettle melodramatic and self important. YMMV. And not as complex as they were portraying it. Hence my laughter at the comic book ref which I hadn’t heard of. My brother who loved the movie will be mad if I send him the link. Should I? Heh heh heh.

Aslans Girl on February 27, 2011 at 11:31 PM

This has to be the hokiest, cheesiest, most embarrassing ending to an Oscar telecast evah. Changed the channel pronto. Some of those kids who are affecting their movements so much are going to look back on this and cringe at theselves, lol!

PappyD61 on February 27, 2011 at 10:22 PM

Link please. As far as I can remember, the only times Bush was at the Oscars were when Michael Moore, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and others mentioned him. I never remember him giving or getting an award.

unclesmrgol on February 27, 2011 at 11:48 PM

To complete the experience put gum on the bottom of one shoe, sugary soda pop under the other and have some crying infant sit right behind you.

SKYFOX on February 27, 2011 at 1:30 PM

You forgot the cellphone, the two people who’ve seen it twice before (and want to ruin it for the rest of us), and the fat lady sitting next to you who’s going to use both armrests come hell or high water.

unclesmrgol on February 27, 2011 at 11:53 PM

So TOTUS thinks “As Time Goes By” is the greatest Oscar winning song of all time and Obama was there to tell everyone what it thought. What a weird appearance.

Marcus on February 28, 2011 at 12:34 AM

unclesmrgol on February 27, 2011 at 11:48 PM

Both Reagan and W gave pre-recorded speeches at the Oscars that were well received. I believe of course W’s was a 9-11 message.

Marcus on February 28, 2011 at 12:36 AM

Sorry, but it is tough for me to care much about the world of entertainment when our country is struggling over issues far more important than who could recite somebody else’s words in the most believable fashion. Besides, the real actors currently hold high office.
 
Nancy Pelosi – the best wicked witch evah
Harry Reid – the most believable cadaver
Barrack Obama – best Erkel impersonation

:lol I was rooting for So Cal 14 year home town girl, Hailee Steinfield.(From the movie True Grit) She has such grace in such an adult place where some adults act like children. Watch this kid….she looks to have a very bright future in what ever she decides to do.

I didn’t watch, did any of the actors make pro union remarks?

The guy who won for…cinematography?…made to emphasize his wonderful, UNION, crew-but that was ’bout it.

Mr Darcy…yeah baby :)

The most political moment of course was the Best Documentary winner who stated falsely that no financial executive has ever been sent to prison (evil Republicans!). Don’t tell Bernie Madoff.

Who should care?

petefrt on February 28, 2011 at 8:31 AM

Ha!

Can’t vote. Hate Hollywood. Haven’t seen a single movie on the list.

Thank you.

All the self-congratulations from people whose only talent is to pretend to be somebody else. It’s such a farce!

Christian Conservative on February 28, 2011 at 11:52 AM

Always remember:
They are just movies. And the people getting the awards are just actors/directors/writers/etc.
Do they portray real life? Not really. They are just a way to entertain oneself on boring days/nights/dates/whatever. Turn your brain off and watch the action go by. Seriously, best way to watch movies…
If my friends start taking movies so super-seriously, I stop hanging out with them because frankly, they are a huge buzzkill.
And I loved “The King’s Speech”, “Black Swan”, “The Fighter” and “True Grit.” are they the best movies ever? Nope. But I was entertained and that is enough for me.

mjk on February 28, 2011 at 1:02 PM

Isn’t it Ironic
People will pay 10 bucks to hear Mellisa Leo cursing in a movie, award her an Oscar and when she does it for free on TV people are offended.

woogs on February 28, 2011 at 1:42 PM

My brother who loved the movie will be mad if I send him the link. Should I? Heh heh heh.

inviolet on February 27, 2011 at 11:04 PM

If he gets mad enough, he might sputter like Donald, lol.
