    Of course. I didn't know that. I actually believed it counted.

    Sounds like Day-Lewis is the hot favourite for best actor.
    Which means he probably won't get it!

    I seem to hate awards ceremonies. BAFTAs, Oscars, Grammys etc.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Good to see that Twilight horseshit scoop the majority of the Razzies.

    I'm all on my own for my own Oscar party. :( My wife's gone to a birthday/Oscar party, but I'm stricken with the flu so didn't want to go and spread the illness around. So I'm lying on the couch under a blanket, eating a twix, watching the red carpet stuff, and I figure this is about as close to being a woman that I'll ever be in my life.

    Are you watching commentary on the red carpet fashion frocks and shocks? That would be even closer.

    They just asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt what colour socks he was wearing, so I guess that counts.

    What colour were they?
  • Deleted user 25 February 2013 00:40:42
    I think one was a Mutant Turtles sock and the other had bicycles on.

    Odd socks. Interesting.

    Anyway, I'm thinking Lincoln as Best Picture. Not that I liked it that much, but it seems pretty conventional Oscar bait.

    I'd prefer Argo.

    This is very weird so far.

    Yay Christoph. I think he's possibly my favourite actor at the moment.

    Fucking LOL at Rene Zellweger. Fucking ripped to the tits.

    Lots of people seemed pretty hammered. Tarantino looked drunk the moment it started.

    What's this shared Oscar bullshit (Sound editing shared by Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty) - fair enough if it's a quantitative award, but on qualitative grounds something had to be 'better'. Perhaps they forgot they'd already given Adele the token Bond anniversary award (deservingly!).

    So, people's thoughts on Oscars results then?

    Happy to see Ang Lee get best director (IMHO, Life Of Pi was more deserving of best picture than Argo - though both were great). How LOP didn't get adapted screenplay for brilliantly transferring an "unfilmable book" to the big screen is just staggering.

    Not sure about Jennifer 'porcelain doll faced' Lawrence getting best actress. I've not seen SLP TBF, so I should probably check my impulsive urge for condemnation.

    DDL deservedly cements his place as the most overrated actor is history.

    Would've liked A Royal Affair to get best foreign language film, but haven't seen Amour, so hard to be critical.

    Uninspiring year for animated films. As such, no surprise to see the academy adopt the default tactics of voting for Pixar...

    Very pleased Argo won best picture. Superb stuff. And also Jennifer Lawrence was the one I'd hoped would win. SLP is an excellent film, in an ideal world I'd have wanted Bradley Cooper to win best actor too, but Daniel Day Lewis is always going to win that if he has a film out.

    Not seen Life of Pi yet, but good to see such a mix of movies grabbing awards this year.

    For the uninformed (like me), here's the list of oscar winners and nominees

    Seems fairly predictable all down the line to me. Glad Seaching for Sugarman got the nod, even if it's not a classic documentary, it's easily the best I've seen this year.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Fairly predictable, although I wasn't expecting Argo to win. Good!

    Having a Best Animated category is useless. If the film is good enough it should be considered for Best Picture, animated or no.

    Pleased for Searching for Sugar Man.

    You guys should try watch it if you get a chance.

    Or have a best childrens film category, which is what it mostly is.

    You could use your argument for best foreign film too. I often see that category as a fop to stop decent foreign films getting nominated for top film.

    Really pleased with most of the results, DDL and Hathaway well deserved. Waltz and Lawrence were really electric performances that lit up their respective films IMO.
    Argo was a great film and very pleased for Affleck. Not hard to see how it did so well and its also a celebration of how Hollywood saved real Americans from nasty Iranians so a no-brainer for the judges I'd have thought.
    Not sure about Life of Pi - a bit preachy and too much religion but was ok, it was mainly CGI so Best Director - I dunno.

    Compared to the book it's actually less religious-centric than it could have been. The whole point of the story is the nature of belief contrasted with the cold brutality of nature - I felt both were toned down for the film.

    Personally, from my perspective as a staunch atheist, I actually don't find The Life Of Pi (book or film) as an endorsement of religion. For me, the book portrays religious belief as a lie. A wondrous, splendid lie, but a lie nevertheless. It's asking whether you'd rather believe the beauty of a pretend world over the cold, harsh reality of truth. The set up allows it to pass judgement or condemnation on those who shun religion but it doesn't really do that either, and the way the central character embraces belief more than religion - by attaching himself to multiple religions - avoids tacit endorsement of organised faith.

    That's my two bobs worth, and merely my opinion/perspective which is not absolute and possibly inaccurate.

    Amour was nominated for both (and won best foreign).

    I'm not really sure why they have any of these specific categories of film. It's not like the Globes which really splits them up into genres. It's a halfway house really.
