Boy, are Matty and Jared Leto going to be pissed off if they lose tonight.

Wow. There are a lot of movies I have never heard of but I will be looking them up. Congrats to all the winners!

I enjoyed "Mud." Slow-moving but very satisfying. Glad to see it get some recognition, albeit small.

@unknown I agree, it was understated but I loved it.

I liked Jared's speech last night - albeit not suitable for Oscars - he thanked his "future ex-wife Lupita" and all the women he's been with and all the women who think they've been with him, lol. Don't believe the stories about him and Lupita, Miley and Taylor.

Happy to see wins for 12 Years, Leto and MM. Agree these awards need to reclaim their soul and keep big corporations out of this. More Independents please!!

Short term 12 is showing in my neighborhood this Thursday. Really want to see it!

Is Lupita naked at all in the slave movie? I'm trying to decide whether to watch that or the last Thor movie.

I watched American Hustle and The Wolf Of Wall St last night. Leo blowing coke up a hooker's ass was great.

That the Amy Adams low slung titties in Hustle and they couldn't throw us a nipple? Assholes.
