Ladies and gentlemen! Nicole Kidman! In some kind of--black--chokey--something? Well, we had a nice run of great dresses, I guess. Without further ado because WE HAVE RUN OUT OF TALKY TIME, CHRISTIAN:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
JEFF BRIDGES / Rooster Cogburn – “TRUE GRIT” (Paramount Pictures)
ROBERT DUVALL / Felix Bush - "GET LOW” (Sony Pictures Classics)
JESSE EISENBERG / Mark Zuckerberg - "THE SOCIAL NETWORK" (Columbia Pictures)
COLIN FIRTH / King George VI - "THE KING’S SPEECH" (The Weinstein Company)
JAMES FRANCO / Aron Ralston - "127 HOURS" (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

Man, they are really bad at picking representative nominee clips. Colin Firth (who wins) looks like he got it for Most Shoutiest Oscar Bait Movie, and James Franco seems to be in a movie about feeling really bad that he didn't call his mom back. Aw, Colin Firth says he used to flash his SAG card around hoping it would get him "female attention, into night clubs, high-level government facilities... Looking at who's here, I'd like to thank security for letting me into this building." Aw.

Please welcome! Donald Sutherland! SIR, YOU HAVE FOUR MINUTES.

HUGE cheer for The King's Speech, which wins, and also just took the DGA last night, even though the visual direction was the one thing I complained about--we do seem to be moving away from The Social Network here. At the same time, the SAGs are a bit of a statistical outlier, because a lot of Great Movie Best Picture nominees aren't the ones with the most acting nominations COUGHAVATARCOUGH, so this is a chance for a really strong group of actors to be rewarded separately from the overall movie. But yeah. It is looking ever more certain. And all this time, by the way, Geoffrey Rush has been delightfully rambling on about the various actors and what it means to be actors acting and the little boy who welcomes the Duke of York to his first appointment "and the delicious Claire Bloom who I only got to meet in the trailer" and how a little girl in the movie could be standing on this stage seventy years from now and holy shit, I just noticed that Donald Sutherland has the most amazing muttonchop whiskers IT IS NINE O'CLOCK GOOD NIGHT.

It was absolutely imperative that we end on time, you see. Next up, on TNT/TBS... the Screen Actors' Guild Awards. Oh.

Actually, TBS over here has Get Smart.

Your icon. YOUR ICON. I LOVE IT.(What happened to books like that winning Newberys?)

Seriously, The Westing Game just gets more awesome every time I read it.

Have you read When You Reach Me? It won the Newbery and it's pretty awesome.

Yep :D

I thought it was really good; I also thought part of the reason it won was because of the Wrinkle in Time connection.

This year's list, though :( It was one of those destined-to-be-forgotten years.

Strange!

(Which is to say: what you said.)

Bless Rush, I'm so thrilled that he won SOMETHING, even if it's only a group award.

Question about Rush's lack of hair - you wouldn't happen to know if he's shaved it for a role, or if he's undergoing chemo, would you? I can't find any news on it. His voice sounded pretty awful (though his speech about all of the children in the film was lovely).

I *really* need a King's Speech icon....

I didn't even watch the awards, so I didn't see it. Was watching & tweeting on "Downton Abbey" and following Cleo simultaneously (yay for Internet multitasking!). Last I heard, Rush was doing a play in Australia; I haven't heard of any illness. I do hope he's all right.

There are heaps of lovely "King's Speech" icons at the Whispersunreal comm. That's where I got all mine, and I'm going back for more as soon as I can make room!

Not to intrude, but I saw a story on Sunday Morning earlier about how he's playing "a mad man" (I assumed they meant a man in a mental institution, based on the costuming) in a play, and the role required him to shave his head. No chemo going on here, no worries!

Hurrah! Thanks for the info!

No problem, glad I could help. :)

The play itself is called Diary of a Madman, is based off a Ukrainian (I think) short story from the mid 19th century.

(I watched that same segment, too! It was Oscar week on Sunday Morning yesterday. Hailee Steinfeild is more and more awesome the more I learn about her.)

Thanks for clearing that up, I zoned out during part of it due to a a cinnamon roll distraction.

(Yes indeed she is!)

Donald Sutherland's facial hair frightens me.

Awesome. Thank you as always for this!

Awww, I love Colin Firth.

Love you, too, Cleo :D Thanks for doing this!

I'm so glad Mila Kunis is getting more positive attention for film roles lately. I've loved her since That 70's Show. Fact: Mila was 14 when she auditioned for the show but lied (or rather, omitted) her age and made it sound like she was 18.

She also plays World of Warcraft and Settlers of Catan.

I always enjoy your live blogging of award shows, not least because I'm in New Zealand where the shows aren't screened live (or if they are, it's during the afternoon on a weekday when I can't watch).

thank you so much for doing this! also, just for reminding me to watch - I'm west coast and was able to catch most of the rerun. tuned in just in time to see Colin, Helena and Geoffrey introduce their movie!

Thanks again for this blog. These awards didn't get a UK showing though I did see E!'s red carpet bit before bed so a few of the dresses and will catch 'The Fashion Police' tomorrow (my guilty pleasure that show).

Great that 'The King's Speech' won a few awards.

I know I'm late, but I am SO SO glad King's Speech won for Cast. That is phenomenal!

Just saw Rebel Without a Cause, so I now know what it means to *Jaaaaames Deeeeaaaaan*. But alas, not a single motorcycle. Which James Dean film is the one with the motorcycles? Or am I thinking of Brando?

That'd be Brando. Which is why Edward and Jacob have a James Dean/Marlon Brando-off in the Eclipse 15M.

Aaaah, ok. At least I'm not the only one to get confused, because I told my dad that I got the movie, and he said, "That's the one with the motorcycles, right?"
