OT — Last chance before the broadcast starts to get in/change your picks for our Oscar pool — Pool name is “TCH” password is “crawdad”

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Just switched over to ABC from E!. E! does the Red Carpet so much better.

  5. myiq2xu says:

  6. myiq2xu says:

    So far “We Saw Your Boobs” is the highlight of the show.

  7. myiq2xu says:

  8. myiq2xu says:

    Finally! An AWARD!

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Who picked Christoph Waltz ?

  10. myiq2xu says:

    It’s gonna be a big night for Django – I may have to turn off the show in disgust.

  11. DeniseVB says:

  12. myiq2xu says:

    These two are even worse than Seth McFartland.

  13. myiq2xu says:

  14. swanspirit says:

    Robert Downey Jr is always good .When he isn’t rudely interrupted .

  15. myiq2xu says:

    So far I have a perfect score. 0-4

  16. myiq2xu says:

    Too much cocaine

  17. myiq2xu says:

  18. DeniseVB says:

    I voted for The Avengers in this category, awesome effects. Awkward they didn’t win it, maybe because their jokes were bad too. 😉

  19. myiq2xu says:

    Well that was rude.

  20. myiq2xu says:

  21. swanspirit says:

    I wanted Tommy Lee Jones to win best supporting actor . o well

    • angienc (D) says:

      I picked Tommy Lee too — but I knew that the Django guy might get it — the Oscars like to use the supporting categories to give awards in movies that aren’t going to win anything else but they *like* (for whatever reason — in this case because the movie makes white men look so bad).

    • myiq2xu says:

      I’m still running an ofer.

  22. myiq2xu says:

    Surprise, surprise, surprise – Angie is in first place right now.

  23. DeniseVB says:

    The office pool link isn’t working for me 😦

  24. DeniseVB says:

    I don’t know who’s writing the bad jokes tonight, but they should knock them off and go right to the reading the noms.

  25. DeniseVB says:

  26. angienc (D) says:

    I really thought that was going to be either Open Heart (my pick) or Mondays at Racine.

  27. DeniseVB says:

  28. angienc (D) says:

    And every else in that audience will go to their parties, do coke all night & forget that formerly homeless girl ever existed.

  29. swanspirit says:

    Liam Neeson has a great voice .

  30. myiq2xu says:


    I won one!

    Here comes the big comeback!

  31. angienc (D) says:

    John Travolta really has not aged well — even with that toupee on his head — he used to be such a good looking guy.

  32. angienc (D) says:

    Catherine Zeta Jones, OTOH, still looks FAB!!

  33. angienc (D) says:

    I swear to God, this is the *worst* Oscars ever — they are spending so much time on songs from previous years — are we even going to hear this year’s nominees?
    (And I say that despite how hot CZJ just was in All That Jazz).

  34. angienc (D) says:

    Oh look, a song from a movie that came out THIS year — whoddathunkit?

  35. DeniseVB says:

    Les Miz = goosebumps

  36. angienc (D) says:

    Skyfall should have won for sound mixing — it is really difficult to do sound mixing in an action movie & Skyfall was top notch. Plus, fact: Les Miz’s sound mixing sucked.

  37. driguana says:

    Who cares about all these liberals blathering…what a bore…

  38. angienc (D) says:

    “Lets hope the misfortunes of Fontine are only found in storybooks, not in real life.” ~ Anne Hathway.

    What a load of bullshit — Hollywood is one of the leading pimps of women out there. Just because one in a million gets to receive a gold statue while wearing a dress worth more than most people make in a month doesn’t change that.

  39. HELENK says:

    not watching oscars, do not know half the people involved.

    has anyone watched Betty White Off Their Rockers? I am laughing so hard. think I have a new favorite show

  40. myiq2xu says:

    Richard Gere looks like he’s got a gerbil up his ass.

  41. angienc (D) says:

    Charlize Theron is just about as pretty as you can get — even with no hair that woman is gorgeous.

  42. angienc (D) says:

    I can’t fucking believe they gave that hack the Oscar for that derivative, racist, piece of shit screenplay.

  43. myiq2xu says:

    Ruh-roh! Jeffhas just shot into the lead. I’m still sucking hind teat.

  44. myiq2xu says:

    I shoulda took Jessica Chastain.

  45. myiq2xu says:

    Not many actresses get better with age. Meryl Streep is an exception.

  46. myiq2xu says:

    DDL was a slam-dunk. The Academy loves his movies.

  47. myiq2xu says:

    OH FUCK!

    Shoulda known those attention-starved Obamas would find a way to shoe-horn in on this.

  48. myiq2xu says:

    I picked Les Mis, Django is gonna win.

  49. angienc (D) says:

    I can’t fucking believe Michelle Obama announced best picture — as a society, we have reached the nadir.
    Cult of Personality. (for realz this time).

  50. myiq2xu says:

    Angie wins with a score of 76

    I came in with less than half of that.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Can someone do a screen cap of the results, I still can’t get in 😦

      Congrats Angie !

    • angienc (D) says:

      I came back at the end to pull it out & beat Jeffhas by 3 points, but I, jeffhas & brimicbed (who is that, btw?) all got 16 of 24 picks right. But we are playing by the pool’s points rules, so I still win — I believe I’m batting 1000 at this. 🙂

      I know people are having a hard time logging on, so here are the final results:

  51. angienc (D) says:

    And with that, I wish you all good night.


    • lyn5 says:

      Honk! I think Mooch’s appearance sealed the deal for Worst Oscars Ever.

    • DandyTiger says:

      It kind of sucked before MO showed up, then it really went to the dogs. And ate them.

    • yttik says:

      Good grief, that really was bad. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, Michelle Obama shows up.

      I’m getting sick and tired of watching really bad television, only to have it ruined by cameo appearances from the Obamas. It’s like you can’t escape. They show up on everything from Sesame Street to Myth Busters.

  52. myiq2xu says:

    YouTube going crazy over J-Law’s stumble.

    Dear actors and actresses at the Oscars or elsewhere:

    I love movies, and TV. I enjoy a great many of you in your various roles. But you are, in truth, kind of shallow and boring when you step outside your roles as entertainers, and opine on this or that. It’s sort of like watching my plumber launch into advice on my Power of Attorney. This is not his function in my life. His function is to fix my plumbing. Your function is to entertain me. When you are not engaged in doing so, you really have nothing to offer me.

    So, DANCE, monkeys, DANCE for my amusement, dammit!

  57. angienc (D) says:

    I was going to bed & just realized — this show started with a song about boobs, segued into a Roman Polanski/Jack Nicholson orgy joke at midway, honored a derivative hack whose movies gratuitously use foul, racist language and violence and ended with Michelle Obama.

    Shame on the producer for approving that script (although they aren’t to blame for the Tarantino win) knowing the FLOTUS was showing up; and shame on Michelle for laying down with dogs.

    Now, good night for realz.
