Jen O.

My girlfriend! You know, if I swung that way.

amalah

Jill-en-hall? I always say Gill-en-hall. Shit.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

This is stupid. Why are they doing this like this?

Fawn Amber

Rachel McAdams is going to be pissed when she sees her hair all wonky when she watches this later.

rebecca

peter saarsgard = hot.

Laurie

Up in the Air depressed me for two days at least.

Sweetney

District 9 should win that.

Major Bedhead

I do not understand this method of presentation at all. It's very annoying.

Sweetney

Aaaaand I'm wrong. Again.

amalah

District 9! District 9!

rebecca

i hereby predict a Precious Sweep.

amalah

Bah.

Amy (Not Amalah)

He looks like Nipsy Russell!

rebecca

I like the presentation!~ But i am a theatre geek..i love screenplays.

Sweetney

Laurie -- Is that depressing?

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Don't forget GOD (underscore.)

amalah

I read the book, but haven't seen Precious yet. The book SLAYED me, so I'm not sure I could survive the film.

Major Bedhead

Dood, you're doing the heavy breathing thing. You sound like a late-night crank caller.

Jen O.

No disrespect. SPEAK FASTER. Why do they never learn?

Laurie

I am ashamed to say this but my mind is making Jermaine Jackson associations here.

Laurie

I am ashamed to say this but my mind is making Jermaine Jackson associations here.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

HA @ Major

Major Bedhead

@Amy - Oh my god, he totally does.

Sweetney

I made an executive decision that I could not emotionally or psychologically handle Precious. I think in this instance I was right.

Laurie

@sweetney I thought it was. Existential heavy shit. Bah. ;)

amalah

Quick! Pan to all the black people in the room!

Major Bedhead

Queen Latifah. That woman is smokin' hot.

Amy (Not Amalah)

it's The Queen! Wowza she looks amazing!

katy

Queen Latifa looks AWESOME. You go girl.

Sweetney

Queen Latifah looks AMAZING.

Snarky Amber

@Sweetney cosigned on Precious

Miss Banshee

Sweetney, I made the same decision. No way I could handle "Precious."

Amy (Not Amalah)

Jinx on Sweetney

amalah

@sweetney Seriously. Precious. THAT BOOK. My copy is LITERALLY tear-stained because it tore me up that much.

Laurie

@Sweetney Added that to my list of films I could not see - which is clearly longer than the films I could, which consist of Up and Up in the Air. 50/50 split.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

Hi all!

Why is Queen Latifah around all the time? I don't get it.

Sweetney

@ Snarky Amber I kind of get the sense that with the possible exception of Inglorious Basterds, I can't really handle ANY of these movies. I mean, Up made me weep. I'm a total pussy.

jodifur

@Amalah. I read that they made the movie lighter than the book. Which wouldn't be hard. I haven't seen it either. I stopped doing child abuse in my non at work hours. Just got to be too much.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Did they do Supporting Actress and I missed it?

Pennsylrican

10:00 and we're finally getting to supporting actress? Christ.

Major Bedhead

Is 9 like Showgirls?

Sweetney

Is Up In The Air the Lost in Translation of 2010?

rebecca

i really have no clue in this category.

Sweetney

Maggie Gyllenhall, making herself cry. That's sweet.

jodifur

@Major Bedhead-9 is based on an old Musical.

Laurie

@Sweetney re: Up in the Air. SEE?

rebecca

yup yup yup...I am happy with that.

amalah

Oh Jesus, that clip alone.

*shudder sob*

Major Bedhead

@jodifur - thanks. They just keep showing clips of scantily clad girls. I couldn't tell.

Sweetney

You know, just watching that clip of Monique, I'm thinking she should win. Because jesus christ. Just that clip was hardcore.

jodifur

Monique has been so gracious in every interview I have read during awards season.

mamaerin317

Woohoo! Mo'nique! I kind of love her!

Pennsylrican

Yes, Mo'Nique.

Heidi T

Yay Queen Latifah!!!

Major Bedhead

Wow, Monique referenced Hattie McDaniel. That was cool. But I still don't know if I can actually watch the movie.

Jen O.

That was an excellent speech.

Fawn Amber

Monique would look perfect without the flower.

But I'm glad she won.

Haven't seen the movie, same reasons you guys all listed. Not sure i can deal.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

@ jodifur I thought the same thing. She's been wonderful.

amalah

"...and thanks to the cast of 'Beerfest.'"

Laurie

Okay so that was great.

Heidi T

I could barely read that book - there was no way I was going to watch that movie

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

She's channeling Billie

Major Bedhead

Pardon me while I go drool on the keyboard now.

Laurie

So will you all come over and watch Precious on dvd with me so I don't have to do it alone? A marathon, maybe.

rebecca

'and, oh, yeah, a couple more awards in another hour.'

Sweetney

Laurie, if you'll hold my hand..... maaaaaaaaybe. Seriously though, that movie scares the piss out of me.

Major Bedhead

I'm going to have to Netflix An Education now. I didn't realize Emma Thompson was in it.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

When I grow up...I want to have more sense than to watch the Oscars.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

A tribute to horror films? Is this an award show anymore?

Cincy

Mo'Nique referenced Hattie McDaniel because she's pushing a bio-pic about her.

TwoBusy

My wife fell asleep on the couch about 20 minutes ago. I'm kind of envious.

Heidi T

There is no way this award show will be over at 11

amalah

My husband just added our very first ever Season Pass to Dancing with the Stars after seeing that Buzz Aldrin will be on it.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

They need Scorcese and Tarantino up there foaming at the mouth about Truffaut and Simone Signoret smoking a cigarette and the significance of the ghost in Japanese film.

TwoBusy

Although Sigourney just woke me up. Still dig her, big-time.

jodifur

@Laurie-I'll watch it with you.

Sweetney

Pamela Anderson AND Kate Gosselin in Dancing With The Stars? Uhh... TRAINWRECK AHOY.

staC

How many awards have they actually given out tonight??

Sweetney

Has anyone seen Sherlock Holmes OR Nine? Aaaaand?

Miss Banshee

ugh, Avatar wins an award. EVERYONE DRINK YOUR DRINK.

Major Bedhead

@StaC - three, I think.

Heidi T

Boo Avatar!

amalah

James Cameron can take his "vision" and stick it where the sun don't shine.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

I saw Sherlock Holmes. Too much action, not enough cerebral.

Major Bedhead

@Sweetney - I've seen Sherlock Holmes. It was a fun movie.
