8:53 pm: This thing is totally starting late. My mom was all, “Oh, watch the first few awards with me.” So I did. Rundown so far…. I miss Jon Stewart, but I liked the number a lot. This whole presenting thing is going to take FOREVER. I’d so much rather see clips. And I haven’t seen Vicky Christina Barcelona, but I wanted Amy Adams to win. Now, Steve Martin and Tina Fey are being funny and presenting Original Screenplay…
8:56 pm: Wow, I haven’t seen any of these movies. And the winner is…..Milk.
9:03pm: Animated Picture…. Yeah, I don’t even have to wait for them to announce it. The award goes to Wall-E.
8:59pm: Steve Marting is HILARIOUS. Now onto adapted…. I’m hoping for Button, but I’m not expecting it. The winner is…. Slumdog. Of course.
9:02pm: I totally spelled Steve Martin’s name wrong up there. Oh well, nothing I can do now. It’s a live blog, bitches!
9:07pm: It’s like I’m a prophet.
9:08pm: Hmmm…. animated short. I CERTAINLY haven’t seen these nominees.
9:10pm: HA! Best thank you of the night. Mr. Roboto. Hehe.
9:15pm: They need to realize that people don’t watch these things for the stupid fucking interludes.
9:17pm: Oh man, please let at least one award tonight go to Revolutionary Road.
9:18pm: Art Direction goes to Benjamin Button. My favorite movie of the year, so I’m more than okay with this. Revolutionary Road still has costume design, I think. Because lord knows Michael Shannon’s not winning.
9:19pm: Costume Design…. The Duchess. Blech. And Revolutionary Road wins no Oscars. This is my sad face.
9:23pm: I can’t understand why there’s a horse presenting all these awards. Is it the horse Craig rode in Defiance? Oh well, Make-Up goes to…..Benjamin Button. Of course. The only answer.
9:25pm: OH MY GOD, IT’S EDWARD! I’m dazzling and dazzled! *Sparkle* Wait….. I don’t like that these two are talking about my classic movies. NO!!! Don’t you dare connect Wings to Twilight and Mama Mia! FUCK YOU!
9:32pm: People need to stop making fun of Joaquin Phoenix. It’s breaking my heart.
9:34pm: I’m not sure what category this is. Oh, cinematography. I can’t believe Revolutionary Road wasn’t nominated. OH MY GOD. Slumdog’s cinematography wasn’t that amazing. I can’t believe Button didn’t win.
9:37pm: Oh no! This is the commercial with the dog that makes me weep. I thought they didn’t show this one anymore!
9:43pm: I don’t get this…..
9:46pm: I don’t get it!
9:51pm: Hmmmm… I wish Nathan Fillion would make a good series.
9:52pm: Oh, I’m not pleased with this number.
9:53pm: Kill it. Please.
10:01pm: Finally, an award I really care about! Supporting Actor!
10:03pm: Oh, Joel Grey is presenting! I love him!
10:07pm: And the winner is…… Heath Ledger.
10:11pm: That was pretty rough.
10:15 pm: Man on Wire. duh.
10:19 pm: WHAT? An action movie montage? What is this, the MTV movie awards?
10:22pm: That Jimmy Kimmel commercial was hilarious.
10:24pm: Yeah….. I love Wanted.
10:26pm: Effects awards. These tech awards kind of suck. Because of them, Pearl Harbor is an Oscar winner. But hey, Button just won another award.
10:30pm: I don’t know the difference between sound editing and sound mixing.
10:35pm: Editing goes to Slumdog Millionaire…… eh……
10:41pm: I kind of hate Jerry Lewis. I’m taking a shower now. I’ll see you in 5-10 minutes.
10:50pm: Oh, they’re talking about Moon River! That’s my favorite song.
10:53pm: Original score goes to….Slumdog. This is getting ridiculous. I liked the movie, but no, the score was not better than Benjamin Button. Or Defiance, for that matter.
11:00pm: This medley sucks.
11:01pm: Original song goes to something from Slumdog. Jesus. Of course, we all know it REALLY goes to Bruce Springsteen.
11:05pm: Oh my god, Liam Neeson is sexy.
11:07pm: I didn’t see any of these movies. I hate myself.
11:11pm: Richard Widmark better be in this tribute…
11:15pm: We lost too many greats this year. A little insulted Anita Page wasn’t included. She was the last living attendee of the first Academy awards ceremony.
11:18pm: Director… too bad Fincher won’t take it.
11:20pm: Danny Boyle takes it. Is it weird that I’d even want Ron Howard to win over him? Because I would.
11:24pm: If Winslet doesn’t win, someone’s getting punched in the face.
11:32pm: I don’t think I’ve ever been happier at an Oscar win!
11:36pm: I honestly don’t care what happens anymore. Kate won. I’m happy.
11:37pm: Wow, one quick clip of Yul Brenner and all I can think about is his TERRIBLE performance in The Sound and the Fury. That movie is insulting to the book.
11:43pm: Best Actor goes to…. Sean Penn. Haven’t seen Milk, but I was so rooting for Rourke.
11:47pm: Hey, we’re onto picture. Let’s not even kid ourselves with this presentation thing. It goes to Slumdog. Okay.
11:52pm: Damn, I should have entered an Oscar pool this year. I would have made a fortune.
