Oscar liveblog, part 8

I would be more interested in thanking the musical director if he hadn't entirely played over that one guy.

Ah, it's a Paranormal Activity skit. Martin and Baldwin in bed, at a "weird" hotel. Speed-mo of them sleeping all over each other in various strange configurations. And then Martin slaps Baldwin. And then Baldwin falls off the bed. Fin.

Bella and the Wolf Boy! Wow, they are still playing the New Moon music over them talking. Kristen Stewart looks like she's got to go put a quarter in the meter, or maybe dash to the restroom. Taylor Lautner reads his lines from the teleprompter with unwonted flair, as if anyone in this room is taking either of them seriously. Also, I just realized they're here to present a tribute to horror because... somehow, that has... something to do with Twilight. (Well, to be fair, Twilight does make me feel a fair amount of it.) It's a montage! Gotta have a montage! We haven't had a montage all night! And in the middle of all these clips of people staring at each other and terrible things happening, they show a shot of... Bella looking at Jacob. Apparently the montage editor is Team Edward.

Ladies and gentlemen! Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick! I wonder if Stewart ran into him backstage and did a double take? And then maybe stepped on Kendrick's dress. Morgan Freeman is narrating the sound editing nominees! THIS IS GENIUS.

Achievement in sound editing

    *      "Avatar" (20th Century Fox) Christopher Boyes and Gwendolyn Yates Whittle
    *      "The Hurt Locker" (Summit Entertainment) Paul N.J. Ottosson
    *      "Inglourious Basterds" (The Weinstein Company) Wylie Stateman
    *      "Star Trek" (Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment) Mark Stoeckinger and Alan Rankin
    *      "Up" (Walt Disney) Michael Silvers and Tom Myers

Winner: The Hurt Locker. We see Bigelow stand up in the audience to applaud Ottosson as he goes to the stage. It sounded like a very nice speech, but I can't type fast enough, woe.

Achievement in sound mixing

    *      "Avatar" (20th Century Fox) Christopher Boyes, Gary Summers, Andy Nelson and Tony Johnson
    *      "The Hurt Locker" (Summit Entertainment) Paul N.J. Ottosson and Ray Beckett
    *      "Inglourious Basterds" (The Weinstein Company) Michael Minkler, Tony Lamberti and Mark Ulano
    *      "Star Trek" (Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment) Anna Behlmer, Andy Nelson and Peter J. Devlin
    *      "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (DreamWorks and Paramount in association with Hasbro, Distributed by Paramount) Greg P. Russell, Gary Summers and Geoffrey Patterson

Winner: The Hurt Locker. Awwwwww snap. And here's Ottosson again. "You get to say something!" he says to Beckett--and then turns back to the mic. "Again, thank you!" Heh.

The E.T. music? what? Elizabeth Banks? Sometihng? Wow, that is one frilly strapless gown. Kind of a grey color, although watch it have a bluish tone in daylight. I think I like. "No one in this room can explain what nanocubic technology is! KEEP IT TO YOURSELF, JAMES CAMERON." Banks was the Sci-Tech Babe, apparently, that they send out so the nerd winners don't have to take up seats. Sigh.

Please welcome! John Travolta! With a clip from Inglourious Basterds! At least we all know why they picked him.

Hm. Two hours in, fingers still finging reasonably well. Good times.

Oh God, they're threatening to bring in "the hottest dance troupe on TV!" I knew Adam Shankman would have to bring in the So You Think You Can Dancers.
