The 85th Academy Awards

This is it! The last big award night. I'm already tuned into the red carpet interviews and so far I've seen some great dresses (Jennifer Aniston's and Stacy Keibler's). On the other side, Kristin Chenoweth looks a few years older than her age (44) and Anne Hathaway looks like she's wearing an apron with pointy nipples.

7:30 pm: How many voices are we going to hear from Seth MacFarlane tonight?

7:36 pm: YES. Why can't Tina and Amy host everything?

7:39 pm: Channing Tatum is such a great dancer....oh that man. Is he a father yet?

7:42 pm: The sock puppets!

7:42 and a half: Oh My God. That song and dance was great. Daniel Radcliffe is adorable. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is gorgeous.

7:50 pm: Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz. I think I will watch Django Unchained someday. I've heard too much about it to not see it and make my own opinions.

7:57 pm: Animated Short: Paperman. Yay! It was shown before Wreck-It Ralph. It's a sweet little love story, go watch.

7:59 pm: Animated Feature: Brave. I like the strong, independent woman thing, but I haven't seen the movie.

8:10 pm: Cinematography and Visual Effects: Life of Pi. This movie awed me. The book is long, but worth it.

8:17 pm: Costume Design: Jacqueline Durran, Anna Karenina. Did she also design her strange sweater robe dress? Okay, okay, I actually kind of like it.

8:20 pm: Makeup and Hairstyling: Lisa Westcott and Julie Darnell, Les Miserables. Who did their hair tonight?

8:25 pm: Not sold by this James Bond medley. Or the gold dress. Where's Adele?

8:33 pm: Live Action Short: Curfew. Has anyone seen or heard of this? Care to let me know what it's about?

8:35 pm: Documentary Short: Inocente. All the nominees looked sad/serious.

8:37 pm: Liam Neeson, what a man, what a voice.

8:43 pm: Documentary Feature: Searching for Sugar Man. My mom has actually seen a part of it and said it was good.

8:50 pm: Foreign Language Film: Amour. Old people in love, what more could you want? Oh yeah, subtitles and death.

8:54 pm: Chicago tribute...she's lip-syncing, right?

8:57 pm: Dreamgirls tribute...Jennifer Hudson not lip-syncing.

9:00 pm: Les Misérables tribute...what a strange combination of people. Wolverine, Maximus, Karen Smith, Catwoman, Borat, Bellatrix Lestrange...all together for a French Revolution musical.

9:13 pm: Ted looks pretty legit. Nice work, nerds. For real, how are they doing this?

9:17 pm: Sound Editing: No way, a tie? C'mon, Academy. Could you just not choose between guys with long blond hair?

9:20 pm: Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway. She knew. Again, with that dress. Get the one from the Les Mis tribute back! Even that was better than your current pink atrocity.

9:33 pm: I'm glad that the presenters are making a big deal out of the behind the scenes guys who do so much of the work it takes to make a movie. Sometimes it feels like they patronize them, but not tonight. Way to go.

9:35 pm: Jennifer Lawrence and Adele are both like six feet tall. Look it up.

9:47 pm: Kristen Stewart's limp (unspecified injury) gives her some awkward swagger. I wonder how she feels presenting at the Oscars when she's won a Razzie for Worst Actress?

10:02 pm: Can we talk about how great Barbara Streisand looks for 70?

10:09 pm: Can we talk about how not great Renée Zellweger looks for 43?

10:14 pm: Original Score: Life of Pi. Agreed! Original Song: Skyfall, Adele Adkins and Paul Epworth. Not surprised. Has anyone ever won a Grammy and an Oscar in the same year? Answer: yes. Julie Andrews, Barbara Streisand, and Eminem.

10:23 pm: Adapted Screenplay: Argo, Chris Terrio. Did they start to tell winners to rush through their speeches?

10:26 pm: Original Screenplay: Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino. Interesting that he won for the writing considering the controversy surrounding the language used.

10:34 pm: Director: Ang Lee. Congratulations, man.

10:41 pm: Leading Actress: Jennifer Lawrence. Aaaaaaaand she's down. The youngest nominee was 9, the oldest, 86. Who falls walking up the stairs? The 22-yr old.

10:45 pm: Meryl Streep just picked a wedgie!

10:46 pm: Leading Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis. He got a standing ovation and he didn't fall up any stairs! Sexist.

10:51 pm: Has a First Lady ever presented at the Oscars before?

10:55 pm: Guesses??? Mine is....Argo.

10:56 pm: And I win! Well, Ben Affleck wins.

11:01 pm: Bye, folks. Thanks for reading! See you at the next awards.
