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!

Erin

I hear "Jesus Camp" is a great one as well.

Tracey

yay AL WON!

Jenny I

I have to search to find West Bank Story...

Go Al Gore!

Amanda

everybody on their feet! you OWN that place, al!

margalit

Al wins. Global warming DOES exist. You hear that, shrub?

Jenny I

I'd better check the background children in Jesus Camp, it reminds me of church camp that I attended many many years ago.

Amy H.

On a different note, I wrote Chrysler an email because that commercial sucked. Here is the URL if you want to do the same.
http://www-5.chrysler.com/webselfservice/chrysler/index.jsp?screenName=customer&country=us&emailUrl=goToEmailForm%28%27R%27%29

margalit

Anyone want a 14 year old know it all that WILL NOT shut up?

Jenny I

What was the commercial's name?

Ennio!!!! Woooooot!

ali

I always wish we could see who stays seated when about 90% give a standing O

Erin

margalit - no thank you. I used to be one of those kids...i know how annoying they are!!! :)

Amanda

OMFG!!!!!!!

I'M TAPING THE OSCARS FOR A FRIEND WHO WANTED TO SEE GORE'S SPEECH AND THE TAPE HIT THE END IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS TALK.

FUCK.

Tracey

margalit: well, i'm tempted.... but no, i think i'll pass ;)

Jenny I

amanda, that sucks. You Tube it?

Tracey

amanda, you really need to figure out that SLP shit, man.

callistawolf

What's the matter with Clint??

Jenny I

Ennio! His music is so moving, I love it!

Tracey

I'M CLINT EASTWOOD, DAMMIT. TAKE A LOOK.

Sonja

another montage = potty break

Amanda

oh, y'all, i am so bummed. my ONE TASK was to get his speech for her, and the tape cut off. so fucking pissed. can't believe it. i even cut out the commercials so the tape WOULDN'T run out. IT'S A SIX-HOUR TAPE.

Jenny I

This is one montage I would play over again!

Amanda

do they re-air the oscars on bravo or e or something?

Erin

Amanda - I think Jenny I is right, it'll be all over YouTube. I'm sure your friend will be able to see it still!

Amanda

i can't believe the tape cut out as gore approached the microphone. the timing would be comical if it weren't so damn turrible.

Amy H.

Amanda--SLP is the only way to record these babies.

good news is that You Tube probably has it.

ahmielyn

NO. NOT HER!!

Amy H.

Celine Deon? WTF?

Jenny I

Guh, Celine, guh guh guh.

Amanda

celine dion = mute button.

Tracey

oh noes! celine dion! HALP!

amymarie

Remember when Celine cut off all her hair?

Erin

do my eyes deceive me or is celine dion actually dressed appropriately?

Sonja

Oh! Celine is actually dressed halfway decent for once.

Jenny I

I feel as though Ennio must be wearing a hearing aid, he was struggling to hear anything that Clint said.

Boy she's got some bling on tonight.

margalit

Kill me now. Celine Dion. Just KILL ME.

Sonja

Two words: backwards tuxedo

Erin

amen sonja!

Tracey

smooooochy face!

Amy H.

not only do you have to mute her, but you have to cover your eyes so you can avoid her stupid hand movements and facial expressions.

but, we have figured out who is coaching the kids on the current season of AI. ugh.

margalit

Could she not find someone to wax those brows? And the faces. The FACES. Creepy X 10.

Sonja

buh-bye celine!

ahmielyn

Oh, I love him!

Tracey

umm, what's he sayin?

Amy H.

dude, no one knows what you are saying...they don't know to applaud.

ali

Clint looks absolutely blind-sided by the Italian. Priceless.

margalit

Tutto Bene!

Jenny I

Where are the subtitles at when you need them?

Oh, go Clint! Multi-lingual! His hotness just went up in my opinion.

Sonja

doesn't matter - the Italian sounds goooooood

Amy H.

Clint is just making this shit up.

ali

Scratch that. I guess that's just how Clint's face goes now.

ali

Ken Watanabe looked kind of constipated in that shot.

Jenny I

See this should be a note to all Oscar winners who want to talk for a long time, just speak a foreign language and have a famous translator!

margalit

Love the look on the faces of the stars as they try to understand Italian. Priceless!

Sonja

GM - we even fire robots

NTE

"Volver-ine" Lame.

ahmielyn

Hugh Jackman. YUM.

ali

Even though Hugh Jackman is on the tele, I think it's my beddybye time.

Jenny I

What is it with woman wearing dresses that match their skin tone? Not my favorite.

Sonja - ha!

Sonja

Philip Glass is all kinds of excellent

Sonja

yesssss - for todos latinos
yay! Ellen is back

Tracey

poor philip glass.... wait, did i really just say that?

spig

Amanda--if my directv was working for Al's speech, I will burn it to DVD from the Tivo for you.

Or is that gonna take too much energy to do? I need to go buy some carbon credits for that.

callistawolf

OMG, I jsut remembered, the always depressing "In Memorium" is coming up. I need a refill on my drink to get through that.

margalit

Is this guy a meth freak?

Amanda

I am all defeated now as a result of my technical snafu, so I think I'm going to turn in.

Sonja

Sid's made me dizzy

Tracey

EAT KIRSTEN, EAT!

margalit

Kirsten, grandma wants her dress back.

Jenny I

Oh that dress is not flattering at all. I really wonder what the Fug Girls are going to say about all of this.

NTE

Poor Amanda - We've all been there. Sucks.

Jenny I

Goodnight Amanda! We will miss your snarky comments.

ahmielyn

Gosh, y'all. I can't take it any more. Ahmielyn, signing out.

Amanda

spig!!! i would owe you big time, man! for reals. you guys want some free babysitting in exchange? DONE.

Tracey

Sonja

Where's Olive? Classic!

amymarie

I think they fug girls are doing their own live blog...

Jenny I

And miss this live blog? I'll just catch up on the site tomorrow.

Erin

goodnight amanda!!

Sonja

Go Michael!

Amy H.

YAY! Little Miss Sunshine!

Amanda

but what if youtube has to take it down? my coworker is outta the country and won't be accessing the youtube link for while. that's my only concern there. a dvd or vhs version of it is a sure thing.

amymarie

...not that ANY of us would go there now.

Jenny I

I am enjoying these short interpretive dances.
