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!

Comments

birdgal

yeah, they haven't shown Brad once, if he is there (I don't think he's nominated personally, though)

Erin

who is that guy?? he's HOT

Elizabeth

Why is Jack Nicholson BALD?

Staci

Oh good I thought it was the stupid internet here

ahmielyn

It IS him! WHAT HAPPENED TO JACK NICHOLSON'S HEAD?!

Tracey

yeah but with babel and all he should be there. GWENYTH IS THERE.

Amanda

nice speech.

Elizabeth

ahmielyn-Chris and I were just discussing that. Maybe he's just really nervous. But it was sweet how proud Will and Jada looked.

ali

Who has seem Letters from Iwo Jima? I have not. Please describe.

Amanda

gwyneth looks good in that color.

Jenny I

Ahh, small Smith, it make sense now. For a minute I thought he was one of the bad guys from the Matrix.

I totally want to see this, does anyone have comments on Letters from Iwo Jima?

Suzy Q

Did anyone else notice that Nicole Kidman's boobs were about 3 times normal size?

Tracey

personally? i have ZERO interest in a movie about iwo jima. sorry, but just keepin' it real.

ali

I love how Clint Eastwood has, like, a 30-year-old wife.

birdgal

same here, Tracey

NTE

Dear Announcer Lady: we know what we are watching. Please don't keep telling us. It's getting old fast.

ali

In an unrelated note, my fiance was just talking in his sleep, and goes, "Oh, Woman, no!" then sniffed his finger. I don't even want to know. Maybe I could have been nominated for short film, if I'd only had an 8-millimeter...

Amanda

i hate all war movies. won't be seeing iwo jima.

Tracey

OMFG what did i do before they put PEARLS in shampoo?!! it was like living in the dark ages!!! (grumble grumble)

Amanda

ali: LOL!

Jenny I

I want to see Iwo Jima largely because I am curious about the actual use of Japanese actors in a movie about a Japanese event (compare this to the Last Samurai which didn't use as many Japanese actors and the fact that TOM CRUISE was the main actor). Plus Ken Watanabe = totally hot!!

Amanda

trace: how are you seeing diff't commercials than i am? makes no sense.

birdgal

I can't help myself, I like those Geico commercials

Ceej

Ali--your beau is asleep alraedy?

Erin

that K-Fed commercial never gets old

margalit

Jada homeschools Small Smith. She's certainly not the brightest bulb on the tree, so maybe the kid can't read.

Tracey

amanda, are you watching DC channels? TRAITOR!

Staci

LOL Ali!

Jenny I

Any Geico commercial with a caveman in it is totally up my alley. Although I too am seeing different commercials than others in this crowd.

Amanda

give it up for the musicians, folks. my hubby's a percussionist.

birdgal

the sound effects choir?

ahmielyn

My favorite caveman commercial is the one where he goes, "First of all, I'm not 100% in love with your tone right now."

ali

You don't even wanna know. He falls asleep by 7:30. Which leaves me with my hummus and crackers and Oscars.

Ooh and my Penelope Cruz, who looks lurvely.

Jenny I

Amanda - in this event? Musicians rock.

Jenny I

This is so cool!

Staci

OMG this is totally cool

Tracey

oh fuck, sound effects choir IS THE AWESOME

ahmielyn

This is great. For reals.

Amanda

oh, trace, you're right. i'm tuned to 7 instead of 13. will switch over later.

NTE

This is very ... weird.

ali

Hm. That thing with the tongue a minute ago looked pretty dirty...

birdgal

if they're really doing this, it's pretty cool

ahmielyn

I want to know what their score looks like.

Erin

wow....wow.

margalit

Sound effect choir, now how do you get that job?

Amanda

jenny: no, he's not performing at the oscars.

ali

Is Beyonce growing coral on her chest?

NTE

(but I'm weird too, so I liked it.)

Jenny I

Can you imagine what is written on their letter music?

Steve and Greg! Woot!

Ceej

Do they need a fart noise ? My hub is way available!

Jenny I

Amanda, too bad, you could have gotten an awesome dress and been a seat filler!

Tracey

wait, where did the sound go?

birdgal

playing with mud in a bucket=Oscar

ahmielyn

SOUND EDITING joke, Tracey. :)

ali

There is a movie missing from all these nominations: CHILDREN OF MEN. WHY HAS PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN II had TWO noms so far, and my beloved Clive Owen's star vehicle has had NONE?

Jenny I

Clint Eastwoods wife just mouthed "yay!". I love her dress.

Amanda

am i horrible for wanting apocolytpto to win nothing because mel gibson is a douche?

ali

Dude. I really wish I could pull off the kimono look. Is very forgiving.

Amanda

jenny: my oscar dress would not have coral on it like beyonce's.

ali

Amanda: No. You are a non-douche for wanting such a thing.

Staci

Not at all Amanda

Amanda

jessica biel = HATE.

birdgal

I feel the same way, Amanda, though there's a guy who did the sound (not the editing) for Apocolypto that has lost at the Oscars 18 times

ali

Scottish accent *drooooooooool*

ahmielyn

In an interview with Clint Eastwood right after he married that hot young thang, someone asked him if he was concerned about heart attacks during sex. His response was something along the lines of, "No, I made sure she was aware of the risk she was taking." I love Clint Eastwood.

Staci

I love the accent

Ceej

Jessica has no place there.

ahmielyn

I hate Jessica Biel too. I don't understand the fascination.

birdgal

and he lost again!

Amanda

never seen a pirates of the caribbean movie.

omg, trace: i saw a pirate's dictionary at b&n the other day and thought of you.

ali

Jessica Biel reminds me of the performers at Lucky Cheng's. (Tranny bar in lower manhattan.)

Erin

I was wondering why she was there? Does being seen with Justin Timberlake really open THAT many doors??

Jenny I

Ahmielyn - that is awesome! I love Clint as well, the man without a name trilogy are some of my favorites.

Amanda - now why wouldn't you want a sea creature growing out of your dress? You could do starfish or squid?

Tracey

so far, these ladies are 4/4 in the Oscars Challenge, FYI:

Ann Coleman's 2006 Oscar Pool Entry
Debbie Morgan's 2007 Oscar Pool Entry
Jenny Berggren's 2007 Oscar Pool Entry
kobri's 2007 Oscar Pool Entry
wendy schleicher's 2007 Oscar Pool Entry

Amy H.

when are we getting to the best supporting actor/actress category? I thought they always started out with something like that to get me all excited...and then moved to the people I don't know!

Amanda

weisz's dress? meh.

ahmielyn

oooh. Me likey her dress.

Jenny I

Aww, I lost. Oh well...

What is the consensus here on Dreamgirls? Love, hate, in between?

Amy H.

DAMN THOSE GIRLS THAT ARE 4/4. (freaking good guessers)

ali

Rachel Weisz = Loooooooooove

Amanda

holy shit! i'm good friends with wendy! go, wendy!

Tracey

c'mon marky mark!

ahmielyn

I disagree with her necklace choice, but I do like the dress.

Erin

here you go amy h!!

Amy H.

ok--here we go...
