Please welcome! Sigourney Weaver in a flowy crimson one-shoulder! "You know, when I first arrived on the set of Alien..." This story does not end as entertainingly as it might have.

Achievement in art direction

    *      "Avatar" (20th Century Fox) Art Direction: Rick Carter and Robert Stromberg
      Set Decoration: Kim Sinclair

    *      "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" (Sony Pictures Classics) Art Direction: Dave Warren and Anastasia Masaro
      Set Decoration: Caroline Smith

    *      "Nine" (The Weinstein Company) Art Direction: John Myhre
      Set Decoration: Gordon Sim

    *      "Sherlock Holmes" (Warner Bros.) Art Direction: Sarah Greenwood
      Set Decoration: Katie Spencer

    *      "The Young Victoria" (Apparition) Art Direction: Patrice Vermette
      Set Decoration: Maggie Gray

And the winner is: "Avatar!" Oh, bite me, cat people. "Jim Cameron... this Oscar... sees you." OY. The other winner: "Thirteen years ago, I thought I wasn't going to survive." Well, this speech suddenly took a different tone.

"And now, to present Best Costume Design, two world-renowned clotheswhores!" "Zez. Clotheshorses." "I don't think the plural of 'whore' is 'whorses'!" It's kind of a retro Catskills comedy kind of thing, I don't know.

Achievement in costume design

    *      "Bright Star" (Apparition) Janet Patterson
    *      "Coco before Chanel" (Sony Pictures Classics) Catherine Leterrier
    *      "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" (Sony Pictures Classics) Monique Prudhomme
    *      "Nine" (The Weinstein Company) Colleen Atwood
    *      "The Young Victoria" (Apparition) Sandy Powell

Winner: The Young Victoria, which I called the moment I saw the first still from the movie. Sandy Powell: "I already have two of these, so I'm feeling a bit greedy..." So she dedicates it to the contemporary designers, the ones who don't do the Oscarbait movies about "dead monarchs or glittery musicals." AWESOME. 

 Please welcome! Charlize Theron with a clip from Precious! I'm beyond even trying to figure this out. CAN'T TYPE FAST ENOUGH.

Because Charlize played someone HORRIBLE AND UGLY OMG in Monster, but is actually gorgeous, just like Gabby?

cause she was in that one movie where they made her really really ugly... ya know the one...

Charlize Theron's dress reminds me in a bad way of the slave outfit princess Leia wore.

I liked that Sandy Powell recognized other designers, but I got a bitchy vibe from her speech. Loved her hat, though.

Yeah, the speech was kinda "I would like to acknowledge the little people who deserve this award. BUT THE OSCAR IS ALL MINE BITCHES!!"

I wonder if Kristen Stewart could look a little more like she'd rather be anywhere but on that stage.

(I just have to go off-topic to say, awesome grumpy Lacey Thornfield icon is awesome.)

To be somewhat more relevant, I always feel a little bad for KStew. She just looks SO INTENSELY uncomfortable, I get sympathetic performance anxiety for her.

YOU CAN'T JUST SPRING THE HOBBLING SCENE ON PEOPLE WHAT THE FUCK.

Did they really just show a Twlight clip with all the other horror movies.

REALLY?!?!!?

I actually screamed NEW MOON ISN'T A HORROR MOVIE at that point, because, REALLY?

TWILIGHT IS NOT A HORROR FILM! DO NOT SHOW CLIPS OF IT DURING A HORROR MONTAGE!

OH GOD NOT NORMAN BATES MOTHER

YOU CAN'T JUST SPRING THAT ON PEOPLE

OH GOD NO

It's like Slumdog Millionaire all over again, except this time the film is actually pretty good.

i don't know, twilight is pretty terrifying to me...just not in the way they're implying.

After getting over the shock of seeing it up there, I started think about it a bit more, and I fully agree with you. RP weird nipples are a bit terrifying.....

I like how they tossed in Beetlejuice and shit like that so they could be like "well horror is obviously anything with ghosts, vampires, zombies, whatevs, it doesn't have to be scary, oh look it's Twilight how'd that get in there."

I thought it was a mix of truly scary like the Saw films, Nightmare on Elm Street and other classic slasher films. The funny scary as in Beetlejuice, Little Shop of Horrors, there is probably more but I can't remember right now. And the what are people on when they love this like Twilight. I mused aloud if they were going to show anything from Twilight during the beginning of the Horror film montage... and then giggled when they actually showed the pre wolfing clip.
