Winner: The Cove, and a big cheer. This is the one I'd heard the most about going in--about the slaughter of dolphins. Huh, Fisher Stevens. They hold up a sign that says "TEXT DOLPHIN TO" some number that had a lot of 4s in it. Sorry I didn't catch that. (Ah, particle_person says it was 44144.)

Please welcome! Tyler Perry! "They just said my name at the Oscars. Heh. Heh... I better enjoy this, because they're never gonna say it again!" Aw. Let's explain film editing! Closeup! Medium shot! Wide shot! Wide shot of the audience! Shot of Martin and Baldwin on a couch in Snuggies backstage! "I wanted to get back at Baldwin for saying I was really good in The Blind Side."

Achievement in film editing

    *      "Avatar" (20th Century Fox) Stephen Rivkin, John Refoua and James Cameron
    *      "District 9" (Sony Pictures Releasing) Julian Clarke
    *      "The Hurt Locker" (Summit Entertainment) Bob Murawski and Chris Innis
    *      "Inglourious Basterds" (The Weinstein Company) Sally Menke
    *      "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" (Lionsgate) Joe Klotz

Winner: The Hurt Locker. They thank the Academy for awarding a movie "made without compromise," no test screening, no interference. Well, not like James Cameron had to compromise anything either, but...

Please welcome! Keanu Reeves v. srs up on the dais with a clip from The Hurt Locker. (Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. You're welcome.)

Ahhh, commercials. My fingernails, of all things, are starting to hurt.

The number was 44144. God only knows how I even caught that, but ... yeah.

The Academy pulled away from that real fast when he held it up.

I was wondering about Keanu; thanks for clearing that up.

What is with the lamps? Was there a sale at Ikea?

Keanu sounded odd to me, I don't remember his voice being that low. I kinda like him more when he's clean shaven as wel- OMG QUENTIN!! I love me my Quentin.

I recommend you watch both "The Cove" and "Food, Inc." Then again, I'm a treehugging science professor. I would like both of those.

I really do not like Keanu's facial hair. It needs to go away.

He looks like a starving hobo. And to think, I was bitching about Jon Hamm's beard for so long...

How was Broken Embraces not nominated? what the hell


Maybe it came out too recently to have been eligible?

Props to you for going through all this - I think I dozed off around the time of some dance number and just woke up...

"Thank you for not considering Na'vi a foreign language."


(Deleted comment)
why are all the foreign guys the most adorable on stage?

"Domo aregato, Mr. Roboto!"

Is it just me, or but has there been quite a number of people taking stabs at Avatar? Jokingly, at least?

You're going to have to ice your fingers when this is done. Keep up the good work!

SHE WAS IN TITANIC! Do I win anything?

Oh snap...I got the actor-movie connection for the presentation of avatar.

I feel smart.
