Here's Anne Hathaway in her shimmy dress introducing Billy Crystal for a halftime monologue, to great cheers and a standing ovation from the audience. "So... where was I? Some things never change; the producers have told me to tell you that we're running a little long. So here are the nominees for Best Picture..." Bob Hope, he says, hosted 18 times and "was what every Oscar host should be: a really sexy movie star. (*preens*) Drink it in, Hugh." And now! A montage of Bob Hope, who once blew Billy Crystal a kiss on camera and gave him the finger once it was off! (I have always liked his "Or, as it's known at my house, Passover" line.) And... somehow this segues into Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law presenting. Don't mess with footage of dead people, it's not cool.

Since my fing is suffering, I can only say that the following banter involves the line, "When you got busted, in a cheap hotel, with a girl dressed as Batgirl, in 2001." "It was $1250 a night with a corporate discount, she was dressed as Wonder Woman, and it was in 2000, and THAT is the attention to detail that has won the respect of the Academy."

Visual Effects
“Alice in Wonderland” Ken Ralston, David Schaub, Carey Villegas and Sean Phillips
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” Tim Burke, John Richardson, Christian Manz and Nicolas Aithadi
“Hereafter” Michael Owens, Bryan Grill, Stephan Trojansky and Joe Farrell
“Inception” Paul Franklin, Chris Corbould, Andrew Lockley and Peter Bebb
“Iron Man 2” Janek Sirrs, Ben Snow, Ged Wright and Daniel Sudick

Winner: INCEPTION, YAY. Seriously, I like to just watch the hotel hallway chapters of the DVD. I'm not going to argue that it was the best movie of the year, but it had fantastic practical effects and absolutely would have deserved Editing had it been nominated, goddamn.

"Jude Law no longer has a ride to the after parties, if anyone's interested."

Film Editing
“Black Swan” Andrew Weisblum
“The Fighter” Pamela Martin
“The King's Speech” Tariq Anwar
“127 Hours” Jon Harris
“The Social Network” Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter

Winner: The Social Network. Well, that was my second choice, since David Fincher films are so much about the editing. Aw, the guys hug up on the podium, and then they thank their wives for "allowing us to have incredibly passionate love affairs..." (ruh?) "...with both our families and our work."

omg commercials already

Yeah the "love affairs with the family" line was unintentionally incestuous no?

He's just incredibly BAKED.

James Franco is high as a kite, srsly. He;s just standing there IN AN ALMOST STONY SILENCE [bad puns ftw]

J HUD is looking incredible.

I know! She's my Weight Watchers inspiration.

Gray tuxes should not be allowed. I keep rubbing my eyes thinking that my vision is fading. I love Anne's new dress.

Hooray for Jennifer Hudson!

Wow, Florence is everywhere nowadays.


Stars in my eyes forever.

That was a pretty song, but so brief!

I think they are doing edited versions of the songs...

Yay for Inception winning. This was a great year for special effects, which means that this win is even sweeter.

As for The Social Network, that means that it still has a good shot for Best Picture, at least according to what Roger Ebert has written. He thinks editing is very important.

Sorry Paltrow, you are just not a country music singer.

She was actually good in the film. Off tonight, though.

Paltrow is looking very one-tone, it's all orange/beige.

Gwen looks like she's in pain...or furiously trying to remember the words.

@r_a_black: I now vote that Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr. should host the Oscars, they were the funniest tonight next to Kirk Douglas.

Just sayin'.

and the sympathy oscar goes to.....

Oh man....Tangled got robbed.

Still mad Inception wasn't nominated for editing! It would've made no damn sense otherwise!
