Tempted to pull an all nighter and watch the oscars as I don't have work tomorrow. Is anyone else or am I a fool who will be sorely disappointed?

Punkatheart Sun 24-Feb-13 15:25:24

Best film will be Life of Pi

Best Actor will be Dan Day-Lewis

What else do you need?

RedPencils Sun 24-Feb-13 15:28:35

I've stayed up to watch it once but it was so long I fell asleep before they got to the big awards.
Record it and watch the highlights tomorrow.

BeckyBrandon Sun 24-Feb-13 15:48:55

I want to see the les mis lot sing..

RedPencils Sun 24-Feb-13 21:23:05

What channel is it on?

ChocolateCremeEggBag Sun 24-Feb-13 21:46:52

E! has the red carpet And Sky Oscars channel, I used to love staying up and watching it all, but forgot to book tomorrow off work

ample Sun 24-Feb-13 21:59:37

I'm aiming to stay awake but will probably nod off (and I have a poorly dd too).
I'll say best film will be Argo.
Best actor will probably go to D. Day Lewis
I'm a bit meh about the rest.
I like the frock-talk though wink

Oh you beat me to it!! I'll stay up a while, but not sure ill make it to the end. Ds is likely to be up at 6 when dh goes to work. I will at least watch the red carpet!

Bradley cooper, Hugh jackman, and other shexshy men in tuxedoes!

Sky living has red carpet coverage from 11.30 too. Might be better and less "American"!

FCEK Sun 24-Feb-13 22:28:15

I want to see the les mis cast singing and catherine zeta jones apparently singing from Chicago (10 years ago, wow, I feel old).

I hope Hugh Jackman wins, but I doubt it.

Lincoln dragged on, so I'd be disappointed if it won.

If I wanted hair the same colour as Kelly Osborne what colour would I have to ask for?? Mauve?

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 22:37:07

I'm on E! It's Oscartastic!

Couldn't care about the awards, the RC is the real event.

Plus this year STAIRCAM!

<faints>

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 22:38:54

My dad (84) said by the time Lincoln died he was ready to do it himself.

My mum (76), auntie (70) and uncle (84) all slept through.

They have date night having met 54 years ago.

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 22:39:51

Glaikit I reckon "old lady coloured" would nail it.

foofooyeah Sun 24-Feb-13 22:40:00

Pu this on reminder but I am cream crackered so will have to leave you to it I think.

Southeastdweller Sun 24-Feb-13 22:41:43

I don't want Lincoln to win Best Picture. It was the dullest film I'd seen for ages.

Looking forward to seeing the dresses and perving on Bradley and Hugh! And the James Bond bit with Shirley Bassey.

Maybe, but its not the same as Phyllis from corrie though!

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 22:51:04

G clearly cannot move from the waist down in that dress.

Who is the guy?

Love the monkey!! grin

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 22:54:31

The monkeys got veneers from the same dentist as Ryan and G.

So many adverts!!

BeckyBrandon Sun 24-Feb-13 23:01:46

What what what.... WHAT ARE YOU ALL WATCHING?! I've got sky movies HD oscars on and it's some crap black and white film :0.

Just sent DP to the shop to stock up on crap to keep us going grin

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:05:29

I just watch E! For the fashions. I refuse to pay to watch the ceremony.

Kilt! Kilt on the red carpet!!

It looks windy!! Hope they got there elnett on!

E! Is Channel 151 on sky Becky!

And erm that crappy black and white film was "the Artist" winner of last years best picture!! grin

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:12:34

What a long, boring day for them though? Can you nip out for a fag once you are in?

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:13:00

I'm only watching the red carpet. Will be Argo for picture I think, D D-L for actor, Anne Hathaway for supporting actress, the rest could go anywhere I think.

recall Sun 24-Feb-13 23:15:04

whoaaaa !!!! teeth shock

LegoAcupuncture Sun 24-Feb-13 23:15:12

Thanks for he reminder. Have nipped downstairs to V+ it.

Ooh Jessica chastin! Lovely and understated!

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:15:49

Jessica Chastain looks like a movie star from years ago. Looks fab.

Who is the child??

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:18:26

She's nominated for best actress for Beasts of the Southern Wild.

BeckyBrandon Sun 24-Feb-13 23:19:00

oh was it? Whoops grin

Got it on now, yey!

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:19:09

She's nine y.o.

Oh is that her! I hadn't heard of that film at all!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:19:37

Do you think Kelly Osbourne really knows what she's talking about or, is she prompted? She's come a long way.

recall Sun 24-Feb-13 23:20:43

glakitz grin Elnett

recall Sun 24-Feb-13 23:22:27

she looked uncomfortable

Did I just get a glimpse of Amy Adams?

I reckon there will be lots of golds and silvers/metalics in the dresses tonight!

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:27:32

Yes, Amy Adams in a very big dress!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:28:26

I don't like that very low cut dress.

But if I looked like her I would wear that!!

Hoiking! Love it!

Love reese Witherspoon!

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:33:04

She's very cute!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:33:32

God, I'm getting old. I don't know who half these people are.

Puppy purse! She knows how to rock the red carpet!!

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:34:42

I love that she's so obviously still a little girl!

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 23:35:32

reese rocks!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:40:33

She does but I bet she wishes she hadn't said that to Juliana re the hair and babies. I adore Juliana she has done so well and has finally got her baby! She looks fab.

PuffPants Sun 24-Feb-13 23:41:57

Am so jealous of you all with your Sky subscriptions!

darksideofthemooncup Sun 24-Feb-13 23:45:02

I'm not watching it as Dh is insisting on watching McVicar, I am, however,reading this www.vulture.com/2013/02/fug-girls-live-blog-the-2013-oscar-red-carpet.html
which is fabulous

Here must be a live feed online somewhere of the red carpet.

PandaNot Sun 24-Feb-13 23:51:28

Oooh, Jennifer Lawrence is looking lovely.

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:52:33

It's funny how they are fawning over the A list celebs. Wait until they are back in the studio with Joan!

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 23:56:22

Googling G and babies Lighthouse.

EnjoyResponsibly Sun 24-Feb-13 23:58:48

Oh Blimey.

Lighthousekeeping Sun 24-Feb-13 23:59:06

I'm just been over sensitive probably? She looks fab but, she's been through so much. I love Ryan also. I wonder if Sacha Baron Cohen will make an appearance this year smile

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:01:15

Catherine Zeta Jones looks weird. I love Sally Field and miss Brothers and Sisters.

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:01:28

I'm just watching and thinking that if you know you're going to be on camera you'd have few lines rehearsed.

I've Sally A-Fs dress. Just cast her in fantasy GWTW as Scarlett's mother [ grin]

Dustin Hoffman seems like such a nice man!!

LayMizzRarb Mon 25-Feb-13 00:03:25

Don't think I can watch for too long with the knob of a presenter sooooo Mis pronouncing Les Misérables. It's not Les Mizzer Rarblay you twat. The second L is silent. You pronounce it 'Lay Mizz a rarb' To rhyme with rhubarb.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:03:49

Yes enjoy I bet she kicked herself as soon as it came out of her mouth sad

Ooh czs snubbed by Ryan!

Czj I mean!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:15:12

She looked very pissed off!

H&M aren't very red carpet are they!!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:17:00

She's so old for her age.

Yellow!

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:17:46

I'm watching coverage on yahoo as I am warm in my bed and I only have Sky downstairs

Anne HAthaway just arrived... she's looking very pointy of nip. Can't decide if it's the dress, the cold or just the camera angle. The rest of the dress is a bit odd too.

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:18:12

Agh at CZJ being blanked on the manicam.

Fecking hell is Jane Fonda preserved in amber between awards periods?

Oh oh Anne Boreaway sad

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:18:14

I miss the old Helen Hunt

Hmm not sure about Naomi watts frock, odd

PandaNot Mon 25-Feb-13 00:21:09

There are lots of very sparkly and twinkly dresses out there tonight!

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:22:11

Naomi always wears the same dress, kinda. Nice, but bored.
And her parter is a cheating dreadful arse, and she could do better.

PandaNot Mon 25-Feb-13 00:22:17

Don't like her dress but Charlize Theron looks amazing! She really suits her hair like that.

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:22:18

Liked Hunts dress. Would you have really known it was H&M without being told?

charlize looks fabulous.

Arf at AH nips. Liked the back but v pointy front.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:22:57

Is he?? I was just thinking how hot he is.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:23:26

Did you see Charlize and her mum? Apple did not fall far from the tree, both STUNNING.

I agree about Anne hathaways dress being odd to. Looked like an apron with a skirt!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:23:42

Charlie is beautiful

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:24:09

Like the concept of Naomi's dress, but the fabric looks like chainmail.

Would have worked better in a chiffon. Contrast with the rigid structure.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:24:11

J-Hud always wears the same kinda dress too, but I love her so she can do what the damn hell she wants.

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 00:25:00

Just looking at pics online - nothing wow so far, although Sally Field looking gorgeous as ever. J Lawrence's dress is a statement and a half - you wouldn't want to go home empty-handed in that frock! Weird necklace trick - she's asking to be garrotted.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:25:39

I need to sleep! I'm waiting for clooney and what beard lady he is going to bring with him.

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 00:26:46

Haven't seen her yet but, let me guess, is Naomi Watts wearing a nude shade? As ever. I hate the nudes...such a cop-out.

Ooh Jennifer Anniston! Is the big frock hiding a bump?

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:28:09

Oh, Bradley.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:28:19

Am watching the bit where the slebs pose - repeatedly - for the photogs, and it's really interesting to see how they are, whether they like posing, are nice to the staff... Bradley Cooper there with his miniature mother, and he is so sweet with her, and looking after her very well.

Nope it's gun metal!

Bradders looks greasy, I'm disappointed!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:29:27

There's no bump!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 00:30:08

I would shag De Niro

JaquelineHyde Mon 25-Feb-13 00:30:37

Is it me or does Anne Hatherway's dress look really nippley around her boobs?

It appears to be pointy in all the wrong places?

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:31:15

Bradders always looks greasy. But he's nice to his mum.

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 00:31:41

I am so behind....

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 00:31:59

Oooh we have turned over, what language are these people speaking?

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:32:38

Clooney has arrived, with Stacey Keibler (sp?). She is looking fab, as per.
He was very masterful, ok bossy, with the photogs, the handlers, the other stars. He acted like he's CHarlie Big Potatoes. He probably is.

Who are the women on the panel? I know g and Kelly.

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:33:56

Love Brads mini mum and the way he pulled her back in aft the camera cut away. Not many men can stand on a girls dress on the RC and chat her up at the same time.

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 00:34:03

it's just lots and lots of.....words

scripsi Mon 25-Feb-13 00:34:59

I am assuming the choice is seeing it online or sky? Am awake but in bed, so think I should spend some time on the oscars ...

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:35:03

who trod on whose dress?

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:35:19

Dark it's fashion dahlink! hmm

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:36:52

Best facelift award goes to CZJ.
With Jane Fonda taking lifetime achievement.

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 00:37:23

All this American nicey nicey is getting irritating..

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:38:22

CZJ sounds like she's doing 60 a day, the live performance later might be ropes.

If czs has had a face lift I'd be asking for a refund based on her crows feet! I was thinking how refreshing it was to see a sleb who hasn't been under the knife.

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Mon 25-Feb-13 00:39:34

Why are all the presenters on E! dressed like it's a funeral?

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 00:41:03

enjoy it's making me a bit anxious, It's like Madame Teussades (sp?) has come to life

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:42:55

She has, Glaikit!
But you kinda pull from the cheekbones through the temples and again from the forehead out, so you avoid that startled rabbit look.
Did she have her eyes done years ago and admit it (I could be wrong re eyes years ago).

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:43:13

Oh dear good god what the actual is Nic wearing?

HID E OUS

PandaNot Mon 25-Feb-13 00:44:43

Hate the dress but love her hair.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 00:47:49

The top of the dress is ok, but the bottom?
She's like a fish/statue mash-up. That was rolled in glue, then dragged through a haberdashery.

PandaNot Mon 25-Feb-13 00:47:53

Jennifer Garner looking gorgeous too.

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 25-Feb-13 00:49:39

None of them dare critique Adele. Yeah yeah she looks like Adele blah blah. More black, more half up half down do, zzzzzzz......

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 00:51:02

Oh god, has anyone seen this Galaxy advert with the computerized Audrey Hepburn? It freaks me out a bit

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 00:52:18

charlize theron looks lovely

I was quite disappointed with adele's dress. I'll admit it! I'm a bigger girl and keep my eye on her. The sleeves were too poofy and there was no structure to the dress. I know she has just had a baby, but she could have done better I think. Sorry adele, I still love you!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 00:52:57

In my next life I want to be Charlize Theron

Anyone still awake?

Yikes!

Salma Hayek is in a neck brace!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:00:00

I could so do the job of Fashion Expert. Lots of words. interspersed with Colours. And Names. I will throw in Metallics. and Red carpet. This season. Fishtail. Serious.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 01:01:21

I think I shall bit you adieu now, as I am in bed, without sky or live streaming form the ceremony.

HAve been reading about AnneH's nipular dress - she was originally planning (allegedly) to wear Valentino, who even released a press release saying so. But she changed at last minute to the Prada. Why, AnneH, why??

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:02:44

Why is that bloke off of Strictly come dancing suddenly a fashion expert?

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:05:07

De Niro is just SO cool

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 01:06:24

Can we view this online without a Sky subscription does anyone know?

Kirsten Stewart looks like the undead!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:07:40

What the actual FUCK is Jennifer Aniston wearing?

Not the ceremony puff pants unless its an illegal feed! Sorry!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:08:13

oh Valentino. He obviously hates her

I've switched to sky now because e was annoying me!

Adele is tallllll! 5'9 6'1 in heels!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:12:36

YAY George Clooney is wearing an ACTUAL BEARD

Why doesn't he just come out? We'll all still fancy him. At least I will!

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:14:56

GlaikitFizzog I know!!! Can't believe how tall she was! made Kristen C look like a doll

Although, WHY is Kristen SO obsessed with everyones height?!

Bue Mon 25-Feb-13 01:15:00

E! is so vapid that I am actually contemplating going back to awful Kristen Chenoweth interviews on Sky!

Because she is teeny tiny!!

darksideofthemooncup Mon 25-Feb-13 01:17:26

I hope I haven't misjudged the tone of this thread but this is the most hilarious thing I have seen for a long time

Bue Mon 25-Feb-13 01:17:43

She's 4'11". How many times has she told us now hmm

SoleSource Mon 25-Feb-13 01:19:34

Missing it?

Is Pacino there?

Who was De Niro with???

Here is the apron dress!!

Bue Mon 25-Feb-13 01:20:53

Anne H has worn an apron to the Oscars?! Biggest disappointment of the night so far.

I know!!

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:25:42

Hathaways dress made her look like she had major nippage going on

I cannot wait for Fashion Police on Thursday... That's when the bitching fun really begins!

It's 90 minutes this week!

My fingers are crossed for Argo for best film, and for Seth McFarlane to be really funny!

Ooh here we go! <main lines coffee>

That is not who I thought Seth McFarlane was! confused

I am the only one still up!

Who were you picturing glaikit?

I'm not sure! I hope he gets better. This is painful!

Some contraversial jokes there...

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:35:44

This guy is going down well....

Oh is it meant to be bad!?!?!

A bit risky if that was a set up...

It was a set up! Thank Christ for that!

Dancing!?,

Ooh, I like sock puppet Flight movie!

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:42:34

I ...... I don't know what to think

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:43:07

Yey!!!!

Flying nun,!

BeckyBrandon Mon 25-Feb-13 01:48:06

Joseph Gordon-Levitts face cheers me up

Yay for Christoph Waltz!

Yes love a bit of Joseph Gordon Levitt

Bue Mon 25-Feb-13 01:55:18

Glaikit, were you expecting Seth Rogen? Chubby guy with curly hair? Because I've just realised that's who I was expecting grin

Yes!! Was in knocked up!

I was thinking Seth green. this guy is shit and not funny

Come on brave! <patriotic>

Yay!!!!

SconeRhymesWithGone Mon 25-Feb-13 02:03:33

Glad Brave won!

I love what Samuel L Jackson is wearing, only he could pull off a velvet smoking jacket at 'the' black tie event of the year!

plinkyplonks Mon 25-Feb-13 02:12:10

Seth McFarlane is doing really well, very funny stuff so far smile

How rude!

Can't do it was hoping to see the Les Mis cast but I have packed lunches to make in 5 hours enjoy ladies!

Ps hope they don't do the jaws music again.

I'm up obviously. I've got no idea who has won what since my TV provider (Hippo) doesn't stretch to programs from anywhere outside Malaysia apart from Aus.

Oooh, Dan Day-L has won Best Actor! for the third time... My left foot, for the first one...no idea what his other one was for

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 05:03:09

There Will be Blood, he won for.

TanteRose Mon 25-Feb-13 05:08:21

TanteRose Mon 25-Feb-13 05:09:51

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 05:17:41

I am so sad I'm missing it! sad

TanteRose Mon 25-Feb-13 05:19:35

why are you missing it?

I am just updating the BBC site at work - will watch it when it comes on TV over here, usually on cable, in a couple of weeks hmm

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 05:22:08

We don't have a TV. Usually I stay over and watch it with a friend but had work tonight and a conference with DS's teacher tomorrow.

I guess the whole thing will be online tomorrow but it's just not the same! <wails>

TanteRose Mon 25-Feb-13 05:22:42

oh, hold on...do you mean you are supposed to actually be there, in Hollywood, and you're missing it because you are preggers and couldn't fit into a frock? grin

are you, like, famous? <narrows eyes>

TanteRose Mon 25-Feb-13 05:23:20

x posts!! grin

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 05:25:26

Hahaha! Oh Lord, I would make SUCH a fool of myself if I ever went to the Oscars. I would die.

Jennifer Lawrence (who won, yay!) said that she became such a babbling idiot when she met John Stamos at a party that he asked her if she was on mushrooms. grin

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 06:42:19

Just watching clips on youtube. Daniel D-L, what a classy speech.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 25-Feb-13 07:05:13

Silver Linings was overrated IMHO. I'm glad she won though. I've already forgotten who she was up against!

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 08:50:12

Ooh, I take it back, I actually loved Naomi Watts's dress - slightly weird boob thing but overall but sensational colour and fit.

Anne Hathaway, why would you wear that thing on the night you know you're going to win an Oscar? Very poor choice.

Jennifers Aniston & Garner - lovely choices. Sally Field - magnificent.

Jessica Chastain - not really feeling the colour or the cut. Jessica Lawrence - how many loo rolls was she concealing under there exactly? No wonder she tripped.

Just finished watching loved when Hugh jackman pops up to help Jennifer Lawrence he us such a gent. So pleased Ben affeck won did shed a tear.

Frogman Mon 25-Feb-13 10:21:41

i've just taken a long haul flight and was totally bored (dropped off, mouth wide open) by Lincoln. Don't want to watch Pi. Rest was rubbishy shite EXCEPT the most wonderful documentary/film that I so want to watch again on a big screen and I will buy because I don't want to lose it. Searching for Sugarman. What a wonderful story.

Animation Mon 25-Feb-13 10:28:56

Was a bit disappointed Daniel Day Lewis predictably won best actor. Saying that I haven't actually seen the film, but have assumed it's a performance that ticks all the Academy Award boxes.

Frogman Mon 25-Feb-13 10:30:20

It's politics, in't it.

Frogman Mon 25-Feb-13 10:32:06

Always a good idea to watch films not-nominated. Searching for Sugarman is one of those special ones. Another one would be Man on Wire, again, SUCH a special film.

Animation Mon 25-Feb-13 10:40:33

Yes, politics Frogman. Think it's a film that would bore me as well.

Megglevache Mon 25-Feb-13 10:40:54

Jen Garner with wrinkles on her forehead....what no Botox shocker!

<<love her!>>

Megglevache Mon 25-Feb-13 10:45:37

Jane Fonda- waa-waa-wee-wuu! Amazing.
Quentin T...just looks more and more odd- has he had a facelift?
Christopher W- Ahem...hello grin
Samuel L Jackson- looked like he was going to sit down and read a story on Cbebbies

<<yes...Kelly Osbourne must be quaking in her shoes given my critique>>

Frogman Mon 25-Feb-13 10:54:17

I think Jennifer Anniston (although not a fan) is looking stupendous in red. Are those of you decrying her taste just being anti-Anniston?

BigSpork Mon 25-Feb-13 11:38:45

Nothing surprising, "the Academy" votes for the same thing every time (probably because the Academy is 94% White, 77% male and has an median age of 62).

Was rooting for Quvenzhané Wallis but not surprised she didn't win with the Academy's voting record. The fact Seth MacFarlan made a sexual joke about a 9 year old girl and was not instantly pushed off the stage and was in fact applauded was disgusting.

And I'm trying to be shocked that a whitewashed not-history movie making Americans the heroes and trashed everyone else when really they were only bit players, but that's what they eat up without blinking.

The system is messed up.

FellatioNels0n Mon 25-Feb-13 11:48:42

I am SOOOO delighted that Life of Pi did so well in the end. It was very mcuh overshadowed on the run-up by Lincoln and Les Mis, so I am doubly delighted that it triumphed against the odds.

Ang Lee is a worthy winner for Best Director, and the cinematography was utterly spectacular.

FellatioNels0n Mon 25-Feb-13 11:49:05

in the run up, sorry - it's my bloody autocorrect again.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 11:58:09

Whaaaat????
What the hell was the joke about Quvenzhané Wallis (copied spelling from BgSpork) - I've not seen it mentioned in the 'news'.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 11:59:03

Copied spelling of QW form BigSpork, but seemingly I can't be trusted with the actual 8 letters of BS's name blush

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 11:59:18

Fuck. Can't spell FROM either.

SusanneLinder Mon 25-Feb-13 12:04:08

So pleased Argo won best Picture-great movie,thoroughly enjoyed it! Didnt get much publicity cos of Skyfall
jennifer Lawrence did well in Silver Linings, but I didn't rate the movie much.
Anne Hathaway-her part was great, but I didn't really like Les Mis, dont get the hype.
Life of Pi-cinematically beautiful,but the most pointless story ever, IMO.
Havent seen Django Unchained or Lincoln-hear they were good though

BigSpork Mon 25-Feb-13 12:25:20

It was partially his vocal tone, but what he said was, to show how young she is, that it's be 16 years before she's too old for George Clooney. Yes Clooney is the butt of the joke, but he made a 9 year old girl a sexual object to make fun of him. It was disgusting.

On top all the name butchering by the press whose job it is know names and do quite well on the hard French (which her name is derived from)/German/Eastern European names. One reporter actually told her that she would just call her Annie (thankfully the little girl set her straight on that but shouldn't have too). And someone at the Onion thinking it was funny satire to call a little girl a cunt (the tweet was taken down later without apology due to mass write in that's still going on to have them apologise). And a lot of comments thrown her way that - at 9 - she's too old for her puppy bags that her mum's friend makes her, too ungrateful, too spoiled, and all this other stuff being thrown in public at a child, she gets sexual harassment thrown on top. As if her innocence doesn't matter like other child stars who've been through. The whole event and system around the event is messed up.

And that was just the worst of his jokes, he did a lot more that shouldn't have been done, but apparently he's "funny" so we're suppose to ignore it (according to him and people speaking for him).

Totally agree, I hate hate hate jokes like that, I don't get how anyone could find it funny.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 13:08:28

(thanks BigSpork)

There's just no need for that though, is there? I know that humour pushes boundaries, but surely we can all agree that objectifying a 9 yo is just not ok. And to make it all the more dreadful, she was there, with her mum and sister. Are they meant to just sit there grinning, pretending it's all ok?

And the name thing. Ok, I C+P'd your spelling, but if you're PAID to report on the oscars, then surely you learn the names of those honoured. So ref QW, as well as the foreign names, there's just no reason to not be able to pronounce them.

And I LOVE the puppy bags. And I love that they were made by a friend and she pairs them with Armani! And she seems lovely too. Balls of Steel!

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 13:25:46

Is there going to be a highlights show on one of the main channels, does anybody know?

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Mon 25-Feb-13 13:39:49

Sky Living, 10pm has highlights.

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 14:28:03

Ooh great, thank you.

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 14:43:43

That's disgusting, but then I am no Seth McFarlane fan anyway. Ms Wallis seems lovely and adorable and as for being too old for puppy purses...wtaf. She's a baby!

I haven't seen Beasts but from clips she was fabulous. However it seems to me that a lot excellent film performances by young children (she was 5\6 during filming, right?) are down to a really, really good director. The kids have to have a certain amount of talent and innate poise of course, but it takes an amazing director to really coax it out of them.

Interesting, about Argo.

Animation Mon 25-Feb-13 15:24:10

And that 'we can see your boobs' song was rubbish. Just not a funny guy - even when he tries to mimic Ricky Gervais mean parody type jokes. They came out wrong as well. He comes across as a bit of a twit.

BigSpork Mon 25-Feb-13 15:36:59

Personally, Cheerful Yank, I think Quvenzhané Wallis deserves far more credit. As seen in the video at the top of the page with a clearer gifset with captions here, the repeated talk of her not knowing what and it being mostly the director really do her a disservice and this talk has come up a lot more around Quvenzhané than it has around other young actresses.

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 15:42:48

Oh really? I haven't actually heard it about her, I was just thinking that from things I've seen/heard about other actors when they were children.

She does seem like a very talented kid and she's been amazingly poised through the whole process.

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 17:43:26

Anyone seen the pics of them at the after parties? Most look better than they did at the ceremony.

But if you thought Anne Hathaway could only look better, you'd be wrong.

Can't link on phone but the DM sidebar of shame had it all...

Lessthanaballpark Mon 25-Feb-13 20:03:41

Might have been posted already but this post-win press interview of Jennifer Lawrence is hilarious.

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 21:53:26

Oh I just LOVE her now for that- thanks for posting it grin

MechanicalTheatre Mon 25-Feb-13 22:07:09

I love Jennifer Lawrence, she's so cool.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 22:09:13

In case there's not enough J-Law love on this thread, looky www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7SFtdOjcUw&feature=player_embedded too

Love Jennifer Lawrence.

CheerfulYank Mon 25-Feb-13 23:10:01

I lover her too, she always seems so real. smile

BeckAndCall Tue 26-Feb-13 09:32:47

That's a great interview from Jennifer Lawrence - she clearly doesn't take herself that seriously.

Just wanted to say that I didn't think the host made a sexual joke about the young girl - or about Clooney, tbh. I didn't see it had any sexual connotations at all. So it was about the age of his girlfriends but just mentioning 'girlfriend' doesn't make it sexual. In the same way as just talking about a partner, husband or wife is not having a conversation about sex - I think you're reading way too much into it.

stickingattwo Tue 26-Feb-13 13:13:12

Love Jennifer Lawrence, even more so now that she tripped over her own feet on the way up! Shame Seth Mcfarlane was basically behaving like some creepy uncle at a wedding... they should've had Tina Fey & Amy Poehlr do the gig...
