Oscar liveblog #7

Please welcome! Marisa Tomei in black! Ah, she's our Sci-Tech Nerd Oscars Babe. NO TELEVISED AWARDS FOR YOU. "All right, congratulations, nerds," says Franco. And then he stumbles over "Queen Elizableth." Please welcome! HER CATENESS. She is here to present Makeup and Costume to the strains of Lord of the Rings music.

“Barney's Version” Adrien Morot
“The Way Back” Edouard F. Henriques, Gregory Funk and Yolanda Toussieng
“The Wolfman” Rick Baker and Dave Elsey

Final nominee clip: The Wolfman. "That's gross," Blanchett announces with great authority. Well, that's why it wins over Normal People Makeup! Heeee, Rick Baker waves to--his wife?--in the audience. Dave Elsey announces that it was always his ambition to lose an Oscar to Rick Baker: "This is better."

Costume Design
“Alice in Wonderland” Colleen Atwood
“I Am Love” Antonella Cannarozzi
“The King's Speech” Jenny Beavan
“The Tempest” Sandy Powell
“True Grit” Mary Zophres

Blanchett is just like, "Colleen Atwood, Alice in Wonderland," no hesitation. The announcer: "This is the third Oscar and ninth nomination for Colleen Atwood." Yeahhhh. Well, I guess you would get someone from Lord of the Rings to hand out Oscars to people who win All the Things. Now, why they had her accept in front of a shot from Fellowship of the Rings, which was costumed by Ngila Dickson, I don't know. Also: I like Atwood's transparent black gloves. Wow, for someone who's already won, Atwood has the longest prepared speech ever. The piano is not patient.

Let us ask the plebeians what their favorite songs are and have them sing along! Seriously, "Footloose"? Did that win? President Obama prefers "As Time Goes By," apparently. Kevin Spacey starts singing "Top Hat" at the podium, and finishes with: "Good evening, I'm George Clooney." He is here to introduce some actual performances! Here is Randy Newman for Toy Story 3 with his twentieth nomination, damn. Here also is Alan Menken, Mandy Moore, and Zachary Levi with the Tangled song! Wow, that is a fluffy blue dress there on Mandy Moore. Wait--that's it? What about the other two songs?

Why... why is Adrien Brody singing in a Stella Artois beer commercial? Everything is confused.

I love Amy Adams dress! It's two of my favorite things, blue and sparkly!

this whole show has a very confused feeling to it, like they have no idea what is going on in the back. Cateness is awesome as always.

I agree with that part. It's nice when people are actually enjoying stuff instead of pretending to laugh.

The Adrien Brody commercial premiered during the Super Bowl. It seems like an audience of mostly straight men wouldn't be the best to respond to Adrien Brody singing to a room full of crying women in a commercial for a European beer.

This commercial was for the ladies who love football and sometimes want something a bit prettier to swoon over.

Those envelopes seem to be giving a few people trouble.

I think we'll get the two songs from live action films later. This segment was for the songs from animated features. At least "Tangled" got some recognition.

I missed the costume design nominees, but did see Alice in Wonderland win. Good.

Time to run up and catch the documentaries.

Squishing those two songs together came across rather bizarre and hurried though.

This guy is so tall and his hair is about 3 feet of that tallness.

Everything is confused. INCLUDING ME.

Does it help if you're actually watching? Because I am not. Is that the problem?

it doesn't. the show makes no sense, franco is out to lunch and anne is awkawd to me.

Man, please stop nominating Randy Newman. All his songs sound the SAME.

Oh my god, I totally agree. I don't understand why they keep letting him do movies.

OMG. Harry potter music number. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?!?!?!?


(Deleted comment)
I was hoping you would mention the Adrien Brody thing. Really? REALLY?

I cannot get excited about Rick Baker winning another Oscar. I just can't.

I am pretty sure you can get Colleen Atwood's gloves from Sock Dreams or Frederick's of Hollywood. The irony of that is not lost on me.


WHAT THE ACTAUL FUCK. Auto tuned Harry Potter? And Toy Story???


Okay, I will admit the "Twilight" shirt thing was kind of funny!
