Oscar thread


Recommended Posts

Here it is.

 

Every year I take a day off work and stay up till 5:00 AM and watch the oscars. I've no idea why, I generally despise awards ceremonies but I have a soft spot for the Academy Awards.

 

I shall be keeping you up to date whilst drinking some nice Spanish wine.

 

If I start to slur my typing please forgive me.

 

If I get really drunk and start off on a anti-bush rant, please forgive me.

 

... I'd love to thank the Academy, my parents, my cats, my G5, my esteemed collegues at the SSS, my chiropodist, my feng shui consultant, Mister Botox and a guy called Dave who gets my coke.

Nice Tim Robbins moment ... victims of abuse

Did he get a vote of confidence re. his and his wife's liberal leanings?

 

Even if he did, some important non-political words there.

Yep, Digi won for most expensive, er ... best, ummm audio stuff.

 

If Steinberg were to get their act together they could be up there. Will it happen? I foresee Pixar ruling the awards soon using ... Logic?

 

LOTR is winning practically all the 'little' awards. Does this mean the biggies will go elsewhere?

Sound editing for Master and Commander?

 

I've not seen it it though Peter Weir is a great director, Picnic at Hanging Rock was amazing.

 

Lost in Translation had some pretty nifty sound but wasn't nominated.

So has anyone figured-out why so many "old-men" and young "hot" women?

 

Tits, I wanna see some tits! Is Janet Jackson there, I don't want to see her tits anyway.

 

I hope I'm not wrecking the thread, I'll shut-up now :rolleyes:

Howards Shore? yeah probably, There were some great themes in the but I felt he overused them ... they got old after the first 6 hours ;)

Best performance by an Orc in a supporting role:

 

Best Wizard.

 

LOTR is looking good at the moment.

Jack Black and Will Ferrell are NUTS! That song and setup were hilarious. Hey, you know what, this is the longest I've ever watched the Oscars. Congrats to Annie Lennox on winning for co-writing that LOTR song.

Peace

Why does the Canadian woman "Best Foreign Language Film" pronounce "Quebec" as "Kwhu-beck"? Just curious. These are the sorts of things that make me wonder... :D

Is the instrument that Shting was playing alongside Alison Krause a hurdy-gurdy? It looks different from the others I've seen. Thanks.

Congrats to Lord of the Rings for the sweep! I'm really pleased the Academy got over their fantasy bias in such a big way.

 

One of my good friends (Joe Letteri) was one of the winners for Visual FX for ROTK - he's the guy responsible for Gollum (among other things). It was pretty cool to see him up there. He won last year for The Two Towers also...

This was a year of great movies. I've only seen a few of the highly nominated films, but the trailers and buzz surrounding the rest were all so full of critical acclaim that it's my belief that any of the nominated films could easily have won any of the awards. It was truly a year of consistantly great performances from the nominated films.

 

I was a little bummed Mickey and Maude singing "Kiss At The End Of A Rainbow" didn't win best song for Michael McKean and Christopher Guest. Much as I liked Annie Lennox's performance, it was the weakest song of those nominated, IMO. The two songs from Cold River were fantastic, especially T-Bone Burnett and Elvis Costello's tune.

It's easiest to find me on Facebook. Neil Bergman

I loved the two songs from Cold Mountain...but what's up with Elvis Costello???

 

Y'see, there's this thing called a 'tuner'. It enables one to actually get his guitar in tune before hitting the stage. Of course, before the day of tuners, there were these things called EARS!!

 

Yow.

 

Nice looking guitar, though...

 

BTW - Mickey and Maude would have been my pick also. "Thank you. On drums......................."

 

Also, Blake Edwards provided me the best moment of the evening - I really thought he was confined to the wheelchair, old and frail...his face when he took off across stage was priceless! I gave him a Standing Ovation in my living room.

 

Up much too late last night,

Tim from Jersey :bor:

Play. Just play.
