The Oscars...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Are any of you going to watch the Academy Awards in about 10 minutes Eastern time. I always watch it, I watched the Red Carpet show on E with Ryan Seacrest. I have a couple of favorites who I am rooting for but also know they may lose to who the pro's say will win. Oh well, we shall see. Ok it just started, I don't want to miss Ellen, love her.

Probably not, I think I am gonna watch Cops, and then something else.

I don't have cable in the bedroom, and I don't get local channels on our dish any more. So I will watch dish, so I can go to bed and watch tv.

What is up with Phillip Seymour Hoffman's hair?????!!!

I love how 3 of the 5 best actress nominees are all "older". Go the old birds! They're all people I really admire as well

The gun for The Departed was cool too. And the Snakes on a Plane one? Really cool.

Just came back from a mini Oscar girl night party. It's always fun to watch in a group.
I thought they were very good this year. I was really happy about Helen Mirren winning and Forest Whitaker was a pleasant surprise (I routed for Will Smith, but was still happy). Also great was Jennifer Hudson. I love it when the less known win. When she sung with Biance, I thought she really shone. She has a natural type of talent. Hopefully they don't force her to lose 25lbs and look like the rest of the actresses out there today.
Also, I was very happy to see Martin Scorcese win as he has long deserved it. I haven't seen The Departed, but I loved his older films such as Taxi Driver, Kundun and Age of Innocence, the list goes on...
Last night we went to see Pan's Labyrinth. It was a very beautiful film, (though unexpectadly violent). So it deserved the award for cinematography!
The shadow dancer performances were very clever. I also thought Ellen had a great casual, but suitably humourous approach. Loved the vacuum stuff and the digital photo opp with Stephen Spielberg.

I started to watch it and got distracted. I ended up listening to most of it instead of watching it. I turned the channel at 10pm though so I don't know who won the last few awards of the night.

Ellen is usually very funny but tonight her jokes didn't seem to go over very well, at least I didn't find most of them very amusing.

Jennifer Hudson is sure having a wonderful year. I didn't watch it, but I heard she was on American Idol but didn't win. Yet she seems to be the biggest winner of them all from what I can gather.

One thing I really liked was the sound effects choir. To me that was the best part of the show.
