Oscarspam!

And then we can move on, but this stuff ain't gonna keep more than a day.

(As to why I was so tired: entropy_and_me put yesterday's liveblog entries into Microsoft Word, and apparently they added up to more than 7000 words. Yeah.)

The red carpet:

What Really Goes Down On The Oscar Red Carpet?

Three Worst Red Carpet Flubs By Ryan Seacrest [VideUhOh].

Oscars: Best/worst fashion. My favorites were Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz and Taraji P. Henson (apparently I dig white gowns this year).

(Once you see it, you can't unsee it: almost every single actress poses with her left hand on her hip.)

Go Fug Yourself goes above and beyond.


The show:

Complete List of 2009 Oscar Winners.

Heath Ledger Wins Posthumous Oscar.

Sean Penn's Wonderful Oscars Acceptance Speech.

Kate Winslet's 'Extras' role oddly prescient.

Cruz becomes first Spanish actress to win Oscar; Javier Bardem didn't come to the Oscars because of Penelope Cruz--because they're dating?

Hugh Jackman's opening number (video). ("Ladies and gentlemen, your Craigslist Dancers!")

Oscars: 13 best/worst moments.

Top Ten Moments of the Oscars. Clips: the Judd Apatow/Pineapple Express short; the Jennifer Aniston/Angelina Jolie thing; Philippe Petit balances an Oscar on his chin; the... ill-advised Great Musicals medley; Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix; Tina Fey and Steve Martin; Heath Ledger's family accepts Best Supporting Actor on his behalf; Kate Winslet looks for her dad; Dustin Lance Black's emotional acceptance speech; Sean Penn and "you commie, homo-loving sons of guns."

Secretly, the Oscars Have Always Been This Gay.


Backstage:

OSCAR Thank You Cam.

Oscars: The view from backstage.

Oscars on the scene: Reports from the theater, parties...and bathrooms!

The Top Five Things You Didn’t See At The Oscars.

Bits: Twittering Celebrities Take Fans Backstage.


Screwups:

Oscars "In Memoriam" Omissions... Patrick McGoohan and Eartha Kitt, wow.

Scoop: Oscar or not, Rourke still talk of Hollywood; Could Any Actress Have a Comeback Like Mickey Rourke?

1/6 Joker Police Officer Version by Hot Toys. "To salute the Best Joker ever! - To celebrate Health Ledger won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role at OSCAR with his brilliant performance in The Dark Knight as The Joker, Hot Toys decided to issue a very rare version of this character to enrich your collection." I'd snark on the timing, but... Hot Toys makes really awesome Joker figures. Like, I even considered adding one to The Shelf. So... at least they have that going for them.


And now, to sleep. Remind me to tell you about the Bowl of Galadriel tomorrow.
