Oscars Live Blog

-- It's ON. Ern is rooting for The King's Speech for best picture, and Leeard is rooting for The Social Network. Gloating rights to the victor!
-- We are loving the new "ten nominees for best picture" thing.
-- That wasn't funny, but it wasn't the fault of the actors involved. They were pretty good. And Back to the Future? That was random.
-- Anne Hathaway must think she's in Star Wars with that dress. She needs to sing.
-- You get naked, you get nominated! Ha. That explains quite a few awards.
-- Just what we need. A throwback to Gone with the Wind. We have to be in bed some time this century, thanks.
-- Best art direction: Ern wanted Harry Potter and Leeard wanted Inception. Alice in Wonderland won. Ok, we can see that. But there goes the trifecta.
-- Dude, no one cares. Maybe your mom. Maybe.
-- We both wanted The Social Network for cinematography. Inception won. We're not too mad.
-- Michelle Williams is sitting with Busy Phillips. That literally just made our nights.
-- This old guy is depressing us. It's like when they let Dick Clark talk on New Year's.
-- Ern wanted Amy Adams for Best Supporting Actress and Leeard wanted Helena Bonham Carter. We both knew Melissa Leo had it in the bag though, so we set our hearts up for heartbreak for nothing.
-- Ern and Leeard are fighting because Ern doesn't know who Kirk Douglas is, nor does she care/she hated him on the Oscars.
-- Leeard rooted for The Gruffalo, Ern for Day and Night. The Lost Thing won.
-- Ern wishes so much that How to Train Your Dragon would have won for Best Animated Picture. It was sooooo good. Leeard picked Toy Story 3, and that's what won. Laaaame
-- Ern and Leeard both picked The Social Network for Best Adapted Screenplay, and we knew it was going to win.
-- We both want Inception. It deserves it after its shunning of best director. But The King's Speech won.
-- Leeard thinks "best idea for a screenplay" should be a category.
-- Good, she sang. We're loving these shoes.
-- Did Hugh Jackman-hating Dr. Cox hijack this show?
-- Oh James Franco, you would.
-- Best Foreign Language Film: Biutiful was Leeard's pick, because she really loves Javier Bardem. Ern shunned it solely based on the spelling of the title, which irks her, and missed the other nominees. In a Better World won. We guess we will have to see it.
-- Best Supporting Actor: Ern and Leeard both think it is about time Christian Bale won an Oscar. Ern really likes Geoffrey Rush though. But why is he so bald? Bale won.
-- Why did Christian Bale choose to have that beard for when he KNEW he was going to win an Oscar? What, is he too cool to look good at this nice event? Funny speech though.
-- Leeard wanted The Social Network for Best Original Score. And it won. Ern didn't care at all.
-- Leeard literally screams in joy every time The Social Network wins something. Ern remains underwhelmed by that movie.
-- Nice Fake 'n Bake, Matt McConawhatsit (however you spell that).
-- Inception deserved the award for sound mixing.
-- Is anyone else wondering why True Grit is nominated for so much? It was good, not great.
-- We love you Cate Blanchett, but this is the one time we disagree with your fashion choices. Agree with The Wolfman for Best Makeup. That movie sucked though, and everyone was miscast.
-- James Franco said "Congratulations, nerds" to the recipients of the technical Oscars. COULD THIS SHOW BE ANY MORE YOUNG AND EDGY??
-- Best costume design: Ern wants The Tempest, even though she hasn't seen it yet. She's seen enough. Alice and Wonderland had good costumes too though.
-- Oh yay, we love when people read their speeches off of a card (sarcasm). She looks really nervous though.
-- They have to show a bunch of good movies songs, because the movie songs nominated this year all suck.
-- Leeard wants the Tangled song to win, but that might just be due to her Chuck obsession. Also, Tangled was a really cute movie. Ern thought the Country Strong song was the strongest, but that just might be because she likes Gwyneth and her voice. Leeard still hates Gwyneth.
-- We saw no doc shorts, thus no opinion. Leeard wanted Banksy for regular documentaries Inside Job won. (Great choice in Oprah to present this one). We didn't see any Live Action Short Films. But can that guy with the afro do EVERYONE'S speech. Except Colin Firth's. That had better be good.
-- Love the autotuning the movies into musicals.
-- Ern would like to make it clear that every time Harry Potter is nominated for anything, it should win.
-- Ern picked 127 Hours for editing. Everything Ern wants loses.... Leeard rooted for the winner, The Social Network.
-- Never thought we'd say this, but we want Jennifer Hudson's body.
-- Leeard is sad about many of these dead people.
-- Ern thinks the dead people portion of this show has gone on long enough.
-- Finally, the good stuff. We both wanted David Fincher for Best Director, but Tom Hooper won.
-- Ern hates these Oscars. What a bore. Lame musical performances, lame hosts (even though we like them as actors), and unsurprising awards. Leeard has called 11 out of 13. We need an upset or something.
-- Leeard thinks that the autotuned movie montage made up for everything else being crappy...except for David Fincher losing for Best Director.
-- Why did the talented Jennifer of Winter's Bone dress and dye her hair like a common slut?
-- Natalie Portman is the most gorgeous pregnant woman we've ever seen, and we are really happy she won.
-- Once again, not shocked by Colin Firth's win, but we are happy about it.
-- Yay for The King's Speech winning. But really, there was no reason for us to have watched this. We called most of them, and so did everyone else.


  1. Such a boring awards... -.-
    So lame, no surprises and not funny like other years... The King's Speech was a great movie but I think the best film is Black Swan. Doesn't matter, I'm bored to death -.-

  2. Black Swan was great, but it was a little too soapy and melodramatic for best picture. Still, we can't wait to buy it and watch it again.

  3. Well, maybe I just don't understand what good films are, because I really like The King's Speech, the acting is amazing, and the movie leave in your face a smile, but I don't think is the Best Film of the year, but well, having different points of view is what makes us humans. I think Fincher was robbed U.U he deserves the Oscar since he made Se7en or Fight Club. I really loved True Grit, but maybe because I love so badly everything that the Coen Brothers make, even Ladykillers :$ haha. Love you blog!♥

  4. Fincher was SO robbed. We couldn't bear Ladykillers though, haha.

    And we didn't mean that we think Black Swan is not as good as the King's Speech. We just meant that it was never best picture material as far as Oscar voter opinions go. Last year, the best movie was The Dark Knight, but the Oscars doesn't usually like horror or action. It has to be a well-done, script driven underdog story, lol. Black Swan's craziness and drama would have put the voters off.

  5. And Natalie Portman deserved the award for No Strings Attached, no for Black Swan... Hahahahaha just kidding, I hated No Strings Attached >.<

  6. You hated No Strings Attached? Aww, we thought it was funny. But almost no chick flicks are really good.

  7. Hey I've got a question for you because really I love the way you express and you give your points of view. Do you think that if Temple Grandin, the HBO movie wasn't a TV film Claire Danes would have won the Oscar against Portman?

  8. We actually didn't get to see Temple Grandin, but we want to. We are saving it for the summer, when TV is lean. We will let you know what we think.

  9. I really loved that film and well thank you so much for the time you took for answer (:

  10. Ok I loved the Gone with the Wind tribute. Pretty much anything GWTW makes my life a better place. But that might have something to do with my obsession with the book and movie...

    - Clapped loudly every time King's Speech won
    - Why is the Social Network nominated for anything? Not saying it was bad, but... Oscar worthy? Really?
    - Natalie Portman is my hero. Loved her for years, so glad she won.
    - All the songs this year sucked. If that's all that's out there, we really need to reevaluate our "musical talent." (PS Gweneth is on my STFU list ever since she hijacked a crappy Glee episode)

    Aaand most importantly...

    The autotuned "musicals" compilation was awesome. Especially because it started with a love song between Ron and Hermione.

  11. We like Gone with the Wind too. At least one of us has read the book.

    Gwyneth is coming back to Glee soon, as you probably know. Hopefully the episode will be better now that they have introduced the character.

  12. Leeard is thrilled that Ern skipped the Social Network question.

    Leeard wholeheartedly believes it's Oscar-worthy. Should Jesse Eisenberg have won for Best Actor? No. Should the movie itself have won for Best Picture? Maybe, maybe not - it's Leeard's favorite film of the year, but The King's Speech was also very, very good (not to mention obvious Oscar-bait). The score, writing and directing? Yes. Absolutely Oscar-worthy. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' score was so distinctive and thrilling, Aaron Sorkin's script was OUTSTANDING, and David Fincher was robbed.

  13. ^Yeah, I left that for you and your rabid Social Network-loving self.

    Since comments go directly to my phone, I get to swoop in on most comments. But I had to let Leeard go for that, because I thought that movie was merely "pretty good."
