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

margalit

Pins are for Blood Diamonds.

ali

Ooohh. Right. Blood Diamonds. That makes sense, doesn't it?

Amanda

blood diamonds makes me think of the kanye west song.

birdgal

that bald head on Jack is freaking me out

margalit

Cameron, comb that hair!

ahmielyn

omg, I didn't know this thing lasted until 11.30. I don't think I have enough beer. ESPECIALLY IF CAMERON WON'T BRUSH HER HAIR.

Amanda

that hemline confuses me.

Tracey

oh my god cameron's dress was about to TAKE OFF

Jenny I

Ewww... she looks horrid. Mermaid dresses are never a good choice, plus white?

ali

THAT'S what Cameron has been downgraded to? "The voice of Princess Fiona from the Shrek movies"???

(Finally.) (HA.)

NTE

The bald Jack is less cool and more creepy, I think

Erin

she's standing all pigeon toed

Sonja

I know - Jack Nicholson with no hair is even scarier.
And why is Cameron wearing an envelope?

birdgal

I liked Monster House

ali

This is my impression of all Cameron's jokes:

*makes huge explosion sound*
*huge banging sound*
*another huge explosion*

Yeah.

ahmielyn

What in the HELL is he wearing?

Tracey

poor cars! i heard from good sources that happy feet kind of sucked

Amanda

is there something wrong with my tv's color, or is that dude's tuxedo blinding white???

Jenny I

Ha! Sonja

Bald Jack - perhaps for some roll?

margalit

Is it that cold in the theatre that we need scarves?

Sonja

penguin suit

birdgal

methinks someone is none to fond of Ms. Diaz ;)

Jenny I

and by roll, of course I mean dinner roll.

margalit

Ben Afflick. Is he an actor?

Amy H.

Sonja--haha.

ahmielyn

I want to punch Ben Affleck. I think he just got botox.

Amanda

star of gigli, ben affleck

is how he should've been introduced.

ali

Right now J Lo is all, "Why did I have to marry the anorexic dude?"

Tracey

"and the one constant that never seems to change: booze."

ahmielyn

When I think of him, I think of the commercial duck: "AFF-LACK!!"

margalit

Jack with hair...much better!

Jenny I

Now there's the old Jack N. that we all love and adore....

Amy H.

I really wish I could fast forward.

Sonja

Michael Caine.... mmmm

Jenny I

Now what is this all about anyways?

Tracey

ahh, bullets over broadway -- so good

Sonja

love something's gotta give - Jack with hair! And viagra!

margalit

Jack is so creepy bald.

Amanda

confession: i liked "something's gotta give" with nicholson and keaton.

ali

Tom Hanks. I'll never get his appeal.

NTE

I like Helen Mirren's dress

birdgal

Tom Hanks finally cut off all that damn hair

ahmielyn

Fucking Tom Hanks. Cartman said it best: "Tom Hanks couldn't act his way out of a nut sack."

Erin

Helen Mirren looks like she floats!

margalit

Helen Mirren is SO elegant. I just love her. Great dress for a woman of a certain age, too.

Tracey

dudes, BORAT IS UP FOR THIS ONE

amymarie

I think Tom Hanks and Al Gore are the same person

birdgal

I did too, Amanda

Amanda

love mirren's dress. would wear it myself.

Amy H.

that was awkward.

Jenny I

Amanda - me too, it was very amusing! Although I didn't need to see Keaton's girls as such.

ali

Hearing Helen Mirren reading that film title was the best part of my night.

Sonja

We support your war of terror! *snort*

margalit

Jack's Boston accent is SO bad I just couldn't sit through the Depahted without squirming.

Amanda

if borat doesn't win, AMANDA'S GONNA RIOT.

which means i will basically yell "fuck" and throw my water bottle off the couch.

Amanda

FUUUUCCCKKKK

ali

am. so. pissed. off.

Jenny I

It's based on a movie from Hong Kong, not Japanese.

margalit

Boston wins! Yahoo.

Sonja

Question: These are highly paid, supposedly superb actors. Can't they be bothered to actually practice the lines so that they don't sound so... wooden? Cameron was esp. "talented"

Erin

I know this dude's a writer and all, but would it kill him to like...fix his hair before the flipping OSCARS???

Tracey

"valium does work" -- HA! LOVE HIM!

ali

GO AWAY, THE DEPARTED. I HATE YOU. YOU WERE STUPID.

Amy H.

who the hell is this guy?

NTE

Margalit - I haven't seen it yet for just that reason: I'm a Boston girl, and the overdone "r = ah" can make me hate a movie

margalit

I lovew me some Peter O'Toole. My Favorite Year is one of my Favorite Films.

amymarie

Enough Peter O-TOOL. We get it. The dude is old.

Amy H.

wow, Mr. Personality

Amanda

i love sbc's fiance, isla fisher. she's the crazy redhead from "wedding crashers."

Jenny I

What is this now, seriously who makes a little wooden chart to keep track of the Oscars, isn't this 2007, can't we have a laptop with animation?

ahmielyn

KILL KILL MURDER MURDER DIE DIE FUCKING TOM HANKS.

ali

I LOVE THIS COMMERCIALLLLLL

margalit

NTE, well, with Walberg and Damon, it's at least somewhat authentic, and Leo does a decent job, too. But Jack...it's HORRIBLE. I just couldn't get behind the film at all because of it. I know Boston is a very tough accent to get, but geesh, hire a speech coach!

Jenny I

I like this commercial.

Tracey

so far, two people who've gotten all 6 right so far:
Ann Coleman's 2006 Oscar Pool Entry
kobri's 2007 Oscar Pool Entry

PS: LOVE THIS FUCKING WES ANDERSON COMMERCIAL!

Amanda

is it just me or could wes anderson be beck's twin?

Ceej

I like Tom Hanks. He always plays along. Course I'm a 'Bosom Buddies' fan from when you guys were babies,

Tracey

a 357 with a bayonet! HA!

Jenny I

Wes Anderson could TOTALLY be Beck's twin! They would make awesome music and movies together... now that's an Oscar I'd want to see won.

margalit

Great Wes Anderson commercial.

margalit

Die Oprah, DIE!

NTE

That, right there, Tom Hanks' ad lib? Is the epitome of that line from Little Miss Sunshine (Sarcasm is the refuge of losers. [Sarcastically] really? ) "Big Fun Chris!!"

Tracey

btw guys, jamie's doing all the scoring on the Oscars Challenge while i sit here drinkin' and typin'... ALL HAIL JAMIE!

Amanda

still in those terrible shoes.

Tracey

oh shit, i couldn't love meryl streep more.
