"That win for Octavia Spencer is what the Oscars is all about," says Crystal, who is not at this moment wearing blackface, and then makes a joke about how he wanted to hug the first black person he saw after he saw The Help and was in an area where there were no black people.

RT @SmartBitches: "That moment with Octavia was what the Oscars is all about." Good thing you rushed her offstage so you could come on and make racist jokes.

LOL ENDLESS FOCUS GROUP FOR THE WIZARD OF OZ SKIT WITH THE CHRISTOPHER GUEST REPERTORY TROUPE. "I didn't get the thing with the kids." "The munchkins? Those... those weren't actually kids." I hate all of you. Seriously, all of you. Catherine O'Hara, you are on notice.

Please welcome! An end to our misery! Tina Fey with a giant updo and Bradley Cooper! Ridley Scott said that editing is like a marriage! Fey: "And just like a marriage, [the director and editor] sit in a dark windowless room, order in food, and look at pictures of other people."

Film Editing

    "The Artist" Anne-Sophie Bion and Michel Hazanavicius
    "The Descendants" Kevin Tent
    "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall
    "Hugo" Thelma Schoonmaker
    "Moneyball" Christopher Tellefsen

I'm just going to groove to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo music while HOLY FUCK, IT WON!

@christylemire: Woo hoo! Dragon Tattoo wins for film editing. The title sequence alone deserved it. #Oscars


The winners are speechless, and David Fincher could not be here, and Rooney Mara looks fab in white. They laugh and say, "Hey, let's get out of here." "Yeah!"

@ropeofsilicon: Hugo wins Best Sound Editing: #Oscars

The weird thing is that this appeared before they actually said this on TV.

Sound Editing

    "Drive" Lon Bender and Victor Ray Ennis
    "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Ren Klyce
    "Hugo" Philip Stockton and Eugene Gearty

"Hugo!" "No, Hugo!" Oh, PUNS. "I'd like to thank everyone who has been born or will born or may be born or may be born again..." AMAZING.

More rushing! Still Fey and Cooper! I can't wait to see the skit they're making room for!
