Oscar Open Thread

Ok.  So guilt didn’t work.

This is a place you can talk about all things Oscar, from the couture on the carpet to how much more talented Steve Martin is than Alec Baldwin.

Don’t expect much of a contribution from me, my main interest is that TV Guide Channel started their carpet coverage 2 hours ago and reduced their already teeny tiny window to a microscopic unreadable sliver.


My other observations are that having not seen any of the nominees in anything it would be cool if Sandra Bullock got an Oscar and a Razzie the same year, and that I read a very persuasive leftist critique of Avatar that contended the Na’vi were inherently racist.

Talk amongst yourselves.

  1. I’m not even watching.

  2. Her last one after almost 30 years.

  3. Standard time!

    Well, over to the right for now.

  4. …. it’s not bleepity bleep bleep RAINING here on the Left Coast right now.

    What am I doing on the computer ?

    Digesting lunch and digging around for something to use later.

    Really, everybody go outside and expose your non coffee party assed selves to lots more of this wonderful vitamin D enhanced pollen.

    kkkaaaaablew.  snot. snot.  Please, God, make them stop blooming soon.

  6. for a protractor.

    Homework time. She has one. She just cant find it.

    The woman was wicked worse than Mr. Blackwell.

  7. You know, I’m actually proud I’ve never heard of most of these people.

  8. The reason Babs is not doing any more of these is she’s sick of it!

    That’s pretty honest, though she does segue right into a self congratulatory mental masturbation montage.

    About Cervical Cancer Awareness. Very imaginative.

  9. I like to see them when they’re acting like normal people, in the movies.

    I’m going to smash the security tags off of the stuff I ordered from Kohls instead.  

  10. I’m already hating the E! and TV Guide coverage, and the awards show hasn’t even started yet.  When Ms.ds gets back from the meeting she went to, she’s gonna find a very grumpy, somewhat intoxified guy in front of the TV.

  11. Sandra Bullock.

    Don’t laugh, I’m sure it will be on Jeopardy or something.

  12. inside the park Granny.

    C’mon, I told you I wasn’t watching.

    Set up by 3 walks, and an RBI single.

    The ball rolled under an outfield pad and wasn’t ruled a ground rule double so after he camped on third for a while the coach sent him home.

  13. ABC’s Oscar Red Carpet 2010.

    And they wonder why people tune out.

  14. Principal Skinner was trapped in a pool full of worms from Friday ’til Tuesday by Andrew Hamilton?

    I have it from Groundskeeper Willie himself.

    • TMC on March 8, 2010 at 2:17 am

    Yes, I occasionally do house work. And cooking “dinner”, translation, browsing take out menus.

  15. Then again maybe its because its always Monday morning here when its broadcast.

  16. Loooser.

  23. So I’m thinking Frog Princess is getting shut out here.

    Fuck you Walt, you anti-semite.

    Hmm… Avatar gets shunned?
