Liveblogging The 2007 Oscars

* A continually updated, running commentary on the broadcast in real-time (hit refresh as necessary)*

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


The night has come. Hold onto your sombreros, folks.

And for the record: I watched both The Departed AND Babel today, so needless to say I'M PUMPED!

BTW, the voting for our Oscars Challenge has been closed since 5pm today, so to those of you who tried to slip a ballot in after that I can only say: YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE, MAN!

8:00: Oh, I guess the telecast doesn't actually begin until 8:30 (?). Ah well, its never to early to start drinkin'

8:04: Nicole Kidman needs to eat a freakin' sammich

8:06: Who is the black Liberace dude?

8:07: YAY STEVE CARRELL!

8:10: What year was it that dogs became fashion accessories, exactly?


PLEASE JOIN US BELOW FOR MORE SNARK, AS I HAVE RETREATED TO THE COMMENTS, TO MINGLE WITH THE LITTLE PEOPLE OPEN-THREAD STYLE!

Amanda

LOVE KATE WINSLET. Gorgeous, smart, funny as hell. And that dress is hott.

ahmielyn

Gosh. Kate Winslet is hot, too.

Amanda Y

Lisa Ling looks 12

Erin

kate winslet looks great!!

birdgal

kate winslet rocks ya'll

ahmielyn

Lisa Ling is in a cheerleader ponytail. It's the OSCARS. WHAT THE FUCK, LISA LING?! For the knees, I might forgive you. For the workout hair? NEVAH.

birdgal

hmmm, it seems all the Brits are classy ladies

Amanda Y

One hot mama that Kate is

Elizabeth

Sigh. Kate Winslet is just perfect.

Amy H.

Lisa Ling's ponytail = ridiculous

ahmielyn

It's the K/Cate phenomenon. Like curly hair.

Amanda

Helen Mirren dresses so well. Age appropriate and sexy at the same time.

birdgal

I used to watch Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect in high school

ahmielyn

Lisa Ling's dress just looks like it's falling down.

Erin

must.not.have.inflection.in.voice.while.reading.teleprompter.

ali

Who WAS that gay guy in the navy blue tux with black accents (for godssake) that ABC hired? He was AW. FUL.

Amanda

Thank goodness no more Lisa Ling and Blue Suit.

ahmielyn

OK, I feel all primed and ready for the actual festivities. What's everybody drinking?

Amy H.

ASIDE QUESTION: for the moms in the group...my 7 month old is coughing up a storm. it is crazy. She is in her crib...asleep...coughing soooo much. Our doctor tells us it is just because she is teething, but she is coughing at least once a minute.

any advice? I feel bad for her (and also I want to watch the oscars in peace)

Amanda

Water. I tied one on last night. And I also had cocktails on Friday too.

NTE

I was glad to have missed the pre-show (chatter = not my thing), but now it looks like I missed out on snarking the pre-show too... should've thought of that

Tracey

HERE IT COMES!

ahmielyn

haha! I love Clint Eastwood. That guy is hysterical.

birdgal

My daughter did that same thing a couple weeks ago, Amy H. I just had to let her 'cough' it out, I sat up with her for awhile and she eventually stopped

Erin

Triaminic makes a great nighttime cough formula. My ped started telling me my son could have it around 5 months but I don't remember how much he could take which makes me useless...

ali

For some reason, Abigail from Little Miss Sunshine bugs that CRAP out of me in real life.

birdgal

Peter O'Toole looks kinda scary, man

Tracey

i'm on vodka and fresca. because i'm classy like that.

ahmielyn

Vodka and Fresca? That sounds refreshing and delicious, and effortlessly intoxicating.

Amanda

Trace: It's refreshing.

Tracey

The Departed made me like Leo DiCaprio. Before that? could do without him.

ali

OMG RANDY NEWMAN (neuman?) Makes me want to watch Family Guy.

Amy H.

Thanks for the advice!

Erin

right now I'm eating a sonic M&M blast because I'm feeling depressed but I will be having a glass of wine (or 2) in about 20 minutes

Amanda

Um, what the hell are we watching?

Tracey

ahmielyn: BINGO!

ahmielyn

I should not even be on this thread, because I watch almost no movies. But I started liking DiCaprio when he did The Aviator. It sounds like I might have to check out this Departed flick, no?

birdgal

I'm enjoying some ice cream myself

Amy H.

this is a pretty cool opening.

ahmielyn

Oh gosh, it's the drumroll. It's like Hell's Bells before kickoffs at pro football games. Chills.

jenn

the Departed made me like Leo too! NEVER before it. Couldn't stand him.

Tracey

well that's kind of awkward.

Amanda

Leo DiCap needs to quit it with all the gel.

ali

If The Departed wins, I will throw something heavy at my TV. No offense.

Erin

white shoes...NO MA'AM!!

birdgal

is that a velour suit she's wearing?

Tracey

c'mon ellen! make some twat-lovin' jokes!

Amy H.

Amanda--totally agree.

ahmielyn

Was that Jack Nicholson with a shaved head?

Staci

Hello everyone!!

ali

LOVE. Ellen's look. LOVE. It.

Amanda

Ellen, I get it. You're not a girly girl, but you just know she'd look lovely in a gown. Just once, Ellen. Please?

ahmielyn

Yes, Erin. YES.

Amy H.

the tux is ok. When she said she was wearing a tux I couldn't picture it being anything good.

birdgal

those kind of look like bowling shoes...

Amy H.

welcome, Staci!

Amanda

Birdgal: Ten bucks says that when she turns around, there are giant 9's on the backs of those shoes.

Tracey

ps: jack nicholson in the departed? AMAZING

Erin

oh..the shoes...the SHOES...I HATE white shoes!!! white sandals are one thing...white SHOES, I'm repulsed. I can't even eat my ice cream

NTE

Birdgal - bowling shoes... that's what I was trying to think of.

ahmielyn

I have tried and tried, and I WANT to, but I just can't bring myself to think that Ellen is funny.

Amanda

Ha! Americans Are Fat joke.

birdgal

ah, Ellen is a box of wine lovin' fool

Heather B.

I can't comment on her outfit as I'm wearing a do-rag, slippers, and blue pj pants with martinis on them.

Amanda

No, y'all: hers are Ducky's shoes from Pretty in Pink.

Amanda

Ellen: You're making me miss Billy Crystal.

Tracey

oh i love this intro

ali

Um... boring speeches like this monologue?

Amy H.

YES, exactly. Say something interesting. (ahem, Dixie Chicks)

ahmielyn

Easter threw up on Abi's dress.

Amanda

what color is her suit?

ali

Okay, Abigail Breslin is wearing larger diamond earrings than I am.

*hate* *haaaate*

Tracey

yeah i'm wearing velour sweat pants. not really a fashion plate myself at this point.

birdgal

yeah, I'm meh on this intro

ahmielyn

Peter O'Toole: "What is she saying? Is she speaking English?"

Amy H.

YEA! She took off the awkward coat thingy.

ali

Oh thank GOD, J Hudson took off her godawful gold lame jacket

Amy H.

yesss! Al was ROBBED.

Staci

Nice tie into Al Gore

Amanda

LOL! LOVE THE AL GORE JOKE. AND LOVE AL GORE.

birdgal

yeah, I'm sitting here in sweatpants too so really, a velour suit would be a step up for me

NTE

So far? Not funny.

Tracey

AL GORE IN THE HIZZZ-OOUSE! i love that man.

Erin

I'm wearing a t-shirt, shorts from Target, a ponytail, and a cast. i'm totally ready for the red carpet!!

Amanda

Carrell is such a gifted comedian.
