Oscar liveblog, part 7

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.
