Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Laurie

@kdiddy Yeah, Natasha Richardson got like .5 seconds.

@jennie I am a vampire.

amalah

rebecca

oh, he was at the beginning. i was busy snarking.

Amy

@rebecca - he was first

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Thank junk on her hip is doing her no favors.

mamaerin317

JLo's dress kind of looks like bubble wrap...

rebecca

what about Farrah?

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

@ jodifur Roy hasn't been involved at Disney for years.

TwoBusy

Quick: somebody smack the dude with the fauxhawk.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

When she said her dress was pink (on the red carpet) my first thought was, "Did she give that pink diamond back to Ben?"

kelly

oh barf , rush the rest of the show and devote time to this stupid bs?? lame

rebecca

@mamaerin...i totally agree! at least she is safe if she *g-d forbid* falls off the stage.

Amy

I completely do not get dance. I wish I could, but I think I was forced to attend too many of my sister's recitals as a child.

amalah

Dancing? At 10:47 pm? Oh come ON!

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Yeah...where was Farrah?

TwoBusy

Y'know what these dancers need? Black leotards and plastic props. And outlets. LOTS of outlets.

Sweetney

INTERPRETIVE DANCE... hey, copycats!

kelly

NOONE CARES ABOUT DANCING EXCEPT DANCERS!!!!!

jodifur

@Amalah-you ok there?

@Andrea really? Who is running the show over there?

rebecca

methinks someone is trying too hard.

jodifur

Do we really need a dance montage?

Major Bedhead

Because the Death Montage wasn't enough to suck all the energy out of the room, now we dance.

Sweetney

Two Busy Outlets placed at random heights all along a wall!

Laurie

Bring on the inflatable beavers and giant ice sculptures, pls.

mamaerin317

Oh good God, at this rate I'll be lucky if this is over before I have to go to work tomorrow. Could someone just tell me who wins best picture so I can go to bed already??

rebecca

i like dance, but am missing the point of this one.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Welp..they are showing Frost/Nixon, The Women and Wanda Sykes on HBO.

Heidi T

OMG - do these people realize that I need to get up in the morning and put a 7 year old on the bus and drive a 4 year old to preschool?

rebecca

oh, are they playing the original scores???

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Goodfellas, NCIS, Law and Order..why are we watching this?

kelly

seriously, I am not impressed. all I can think is "I could do that, if I wanted to" (I mean I am nine monthes preg and ginormous so I may be delusional but dancing bores the crap out of me)

Amy S

Oscars, you are not helping me in me and my husband's fight between Oscars or Halo.

jodifur

I AM OFFICIALLY DECLARING THESE THE MOST BORING OSCARS EVER.

Have we even done the blah, blah humanitarian award nonsense?

I'm totally going to have to bail and go to bed before this over. But that may be NEVER.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

OMG, the dancing might put me to sleep...

rebecca

it is kinda...gap commercial tribal.

rebecca

it is kinda...gap commercial tribal.

Sweetney

EFF YOU, OSCARS.

Out-Numbered

LOOK!!!! INTERPRETIVE DANCE!!!!!

rebecca

more clooney.

kdiddy

this is starting to look like a Christopher Guest movie.

Out-Numbered

TwoBusy

@Sweetney I'm convinced there's a logic to it. That if I stare it long enough - like one of those old "Magic Eye" posters - it'll suddenly come into focus and I'll understand the outlet rationale.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

@ jodifur Some guy named Robert Iger is CEO. I think he took over after Michael Eisner.

Heidi T

The walking chicken cutlet is back.

kdiddy

Everyone needs a stool!

Major Bedhead

This Oscars should be sold as a cure for insomnia.

rebecca

am i the only person who doesn't think sam worthington is hot?

Amy

"I was more creative than you are when I was nine, suck it bitches!"

Out-Numbered

This guy's getting cut off.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

I don't think one person tonight has made a witty, moving speech yet. One came "kinda" close, but overall? Bleh.

jodifur

@Andrea I thought Roy came back after Eisner. Fascinating.

Major Bedhead

@rebecca - I don't even know who he is.

rebecca

the spartan and the douche.

Snarky Amber

@kdiddy from the parlor to the pool room!

Amy

"...Oh, sorry, I meant, 'follow your dreams.'"

mamaerin317

oh...hello boys! *drool*

kdiddy

And now it is time for the Ikebana portion of our program set to the sound effects of Avatar!

rebecca

@major bedhead...the guy from avatar

Jennie

I'm exhausted. And the visual effects award is not helping.

kdiddy

And then there will be a recreation of the tea ceremony from Karate Kid II, just because it was in a movie

Laurie

Bradley Cooper does nothing for me but Gerard Butler is hot hottie hot. (I allow myself to say that like twice a year. ;))

Sarah

Gerard Butler and Bradley Cooper=Hottest gay couple evar!

Snarky Amber

Can someone please tell me how many more awards I have to suffer through? I can't even be funny. This show is sucking my will to snark.

kdiddy

And then the competitive eating portion, featuring James Cameron's wife and Nicole Richie. Place your bets!

rebecca

is he gonna say vision?!?!?

Sweetney

Go to hell, James Cameron. I swear, this show is just starting to make me belligerent.

WineandSunshine

And the award for scruffy Scottish sexiness goes to...

Amy

Everyone get ready to do a shot when they say something about James Cameron's "vision."

kelly

family just got home from mall of america.. 10 pm , 3 yearold soaking wet from log flume ride, she is pissed, 6, 8, and 11 yearold have school in am and husband has to work in 45 minutes I guess I will be busy for awhile... thank god for dvr...

amalah

Oh my God, an Avatar speech without the world "vision."

Am drinking anyway.

rebecca

@kdiddy...LOL

Major Bedhead

@rebecca - I've avoided that movie this far although my husband is pushing hard for me to see it.

mamaerin317

I'm almost out of wine...this could be tragic.

rebecca

yeah, clooney is hot, but i am so over him.

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

I am so tired of the gushing over James/Jim Cameron.

jodifur

I don't understand Avatar. Why is it a "vision?" So he made up a planet, and a people, and a language, and technology. I could totally do that. I'm just, you know, not.

rebecca

@Major Bedhead...i hate to out myslef as a non-avatar hater...but i took my husband to see it for valentine's day, and it was actually kind of lovely.

but i totally hate james cameron on principle.

TwoBusy

Great promo. "Will the Academy, at long last, give the Best Director award to someone other than a white dude? Or do we give it to a white dude and try not to feel weird about it afterwards?"

Major Bedhead

Oh! Who's the bigger douche? James Cameron or Rocco DiSpirito?

rebecca

am in love with modern family

Andrea from Big Blue Momma

I love Modern Family.

Washington "My Cube Is Fred Leighton" Cube

Amber? Do what I'm doing. Multi-task. I've already gone through mail and cleaned phone up. Emptied garbage cans, given myself a facial, plucked eyebrows and about to brush hair 100 times...or something.
