Won't be watching!

T. W. said...

I am relying on the CDaNers for juicy info because I ain't watching it either. I don't get ABC anyhow.

horncusker said...

YAY - cannot wait for reveals after tonight

rosie riveter said...

First off, I'd like to take this time to thank God....

Katherine Manley said...

Aye Tonya

Katherine Manley said...

Aye Jennifer Garner: Givr me a job!!!

T. W. said...

I thank Jesus for bringing us together here tonight so we can have some fun. I thank Jesus for Rosie Riveter and the others to come. I thank Jesus we do not have the problems that these celebrities seen to have.

Genee216 said...

Loving the gowns. Excited for the blinds to come.

TimC said...

i only like it when things go horrible wrong. never two years in a row.

Humor Me said...

@T.W. -

Amen!

Sara said...

Lupita and Danai have arrived to kill it

lurkingxshewolf said...

Lupita is a queen

David Howes said...

Congratulations to Phil Mickelson for the win at the WGC in Mexico!

Pokey Blow said...

Millions of meteors out there, billions, trillions... and not one will do us a teeny favor by landing on that theater.

drewh1979 said...

lets do this! headlights and bumpers ahead

T. W. said...

@Humor Me - Amen & I love you too!

T. W. said...

@Pokey Blow - Keep hope alive!

drewh1979 said...

kimmel just called them all godless hollywood elites! lmao

JL said...

So preachy already.

Speech_teacher said...

I just hit mute. I started watching because I heard it was going to be more positive. But it isn't. Why does it have to get political. We know his agenda. I just want to watch the awards.

Danielle said...

Jimmy did well with the open.

drewh1979 said...

helen mirren on a jet ski!

Humor Me said...

Good for Sam Rockwell!!

lurkingxshewolf said...

yay sam! well deserved

long time lurker said...

Jimmy the Sports Guy

Snootches said...

What a weird night so far. The E Red Carpet show was super awkward. The last 45 minutes was just Gulliana sitting at a table with stylists analyzing photos of celebs. They stopped "sending it over to Ryan" for interviews at that point. As far as I saw, he didn't get any of the big names. I did see Mary J., Taraji, Whoopi, the chick from Baby Driver, Common and a few others.

xyzxyz33 said...

Refuse to Watch.
The Oscars have become a political rally I'm not interested in attending.
Hollywood used to be about entertainment and glamour,
now it's about Jimmy Kimmel crying and spewing his latest talking points from
the political propaganda machine.
Rachel Maddow puts on a better show than any of these fools ever would or could.

Wantsapphires said...

So about 3 people here are actually watching? Lol

Humor Me said...

@Snootches - I read Kelly ripa jumped in to "save' Seacrest and direct people his way......

KatieScarlett said...

You should do one blind about everyone who wins an award tonight. lol

Boldblonde said...

Allison Williams needs to eat something.

drewh1979 said...

helen mirren jet ski time to beat...1:30 Sam Rockwell

Snootches said...

So far, she's been called Gail and Gall. Ladies and Gentlemen Gall Gadote

Humor Me said...

Darkest Hour - makeup and hairstyling. Very well indeed!

Sekrit said...

Won't be able to watch, however, I'm sure Mr X and Enty will give us the goods ;)

Alexandria said...

Hell yeah Sam Rockwell, well deserved win! 🤘

Humor Me said...

Eva Marie Saint - then and now @ 93 - just wow!!

drewh1979 said...

daniel day lewis showed up!

Snootches said...

That makes sense. It was obvi most were steering clear

Snootches said...

Legend!!!!!

lurkingxshewolf said...

Eva is 93?!? Good for her.

drewh1979 said...

EMS looks amazing! good living and great genes

Deborah said...

Loved Sam Rockwell’s speech

Snootches said...

I'd be content listening to her old Hollywood stories for the remainder of the ceremony.

drewh1979 said...

phantom thread for costume design! gotta be the leader in the clubhouse for helen mirrens jet ski for shortest address

Chenin Blanc said...

Stopped watching when affirmation action speech started on the red carpet.

Dena said...

RDJ in blackface...lol!

Unknown said...

I personally don't care - the Oscars are just to sell movie tickets and for the 'elite" to pat themselves on the back. I'd rather just watch a movie. Have your party, but I just don't have any fucks to give. Especially when they start preaching. Until people like Schneider and Geffen and the rest of them are in jail, because the people in that industry put morals and principle ahead of money and DO something about it, they've got nothing to say I want to hear.

Dena said...

Omg, the montages are really good.

Adam said...

Nobody gives a fuck

Humor Me said...

Dunkirk wins for sound editing! Well deserved - old fashioned big screen movie!!

Dena said...

Baby Driver actress in yellow is so hot, but I don't like something about Ansel's tux.

Humor Me said...

Whoa - double win - for sound mixing! Dunkirk!!

drewh1979 said...

dunkirk sweep baby!

lurkingxshewolf said...

Academy loves a good war flick.

Squee said...

I don't get why people who have so few fucks to give about the Oscars are here reading comments about the Oscars. Seems like an enormous waste of time.

Humor Me said...

Dunkirk is the dirty, gritty side of Mrs. Miniver.

Chenin Blanc said...

I was dying for Seacrest to ask Christopher Plummer how he landed his role in All the money in the world. Meh, coward.

B626 said...

I wonder if there is a highly orchestrated plan to enable Michael Straihan and Kelly Ripa to avoid each other?
Is Hubby Mark allowed to say Hi?

PattiJoy said...

Three words--EVA MARIE SAINT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

🥃

Lyla said...

Margot Robbie looks unwell. She's paler than usual and looks like she's lost 10lbs in a fitted white dress nonetheless. Anyone else notice?

lurkingxshewolf said...

Don't know about Margot, but Gael has let himself go.

Fairylights said...

OMG, the guy who started 'remember me' was TERRIBLE!

Do Tell said...

This song sucks.

Dena said...

There's so much paleness tonight, my least favorite is Nicole Kidman - chick needs a new hair color.

Gael was not very good.

one_eyed_bob said...

THe opening segment of the song "Remember Me" has to be the worst performances in Oscar history

Do Tell said...

Rita Moreno, as always, looks unbelievable.

Do Tell said...

Rob Lowe must be all "YES!! Someone sucked worse than I did singing at the Oscars!"

Humor Me said...

and.......Lake Havasu - bring your jet ski!!!

HoneyRiot said...

I'm really liking this Price is Right integration.

Dena said...

I need the number of her plastic surgeon.

Do Tell said...

HEYYYYY YOU GUYYYYYYS!!!!

Julia H said...

Gael Garcia, stick to acting and looking pretty - that’s what you do best. No more singing FFS! 😭

Do Tell said...

Agreed!

T. W. said...

@Squee - Hi! I can only speak for myself. I know I am going to get a good report from those who are watching. Plus we are keeping each other entertained. I hope this helps.

Dena said...

Please let Laurie Metcalfe win !

Raging Bunnies said...

I tried. I tried again. I tried a third time. I can't bring myself to watch.

I will enjoy this thread, however.

Laura Jay said...

Let's just say Rita Moreno is a gift to the world. Damn. We would all like to look like that at 83.

Raging Bunnies said...

Amen and Amen.

drewh1979 said...

kimmel ups the stakes for shortest speech... Lake Havasu!! maybe a new kia sportage is next

PghGirl said...

ALISON!!!!

Humor Me said...

actress in a supporting role goes to........
Allison Janney

Do Tell said...

GO ALISON GO!!!

Griff said...

Sam Rockwell...glad he's being given attention. He's been sadly typed, but is a damn good actor.

Dena said...

Rita Moreno is 86!!!

Do Tell said...

Great performance. Go Janney Go!!

Speech_teacher said...

I'm watching now. My thoughts: I loved the montage. I love old movies and that's why I watch. I adore Sam Rockwell and am thrilled he won, but didn't like the movie. Mary J Blige song was ok but the Coco one, eek, it was terrible. Love Allison Janney in everything she's in. Never saw the movie though. Eva Marie Saint still is fabulous, so is Rita Moreno.

Humor Me said...

I want to know how Alison's dress stays put......

drewh1979 said...

greatest oscar opening speech ever 'i did this all by myself..'

Do Tell said...

Roseanne commercial!!!!

Squee said...

@T.W. being here because you enjoy the commentary is great! I'm annoyed by those who jump in to bitch/brag about how much they hate the show &/or don't watch movies. Go read about something you do enjoy then, it's pretty simple.

T. W. said...

I am happy for Allison! I am willing to pay money to see I, Tonya & Black Panther. You know BP is getting an Oscar for costume design next year.

drewh1979 said...

Kobe gets an oscar!

Do Tell said...

The Star Wars franchise should just be killed off already.

Do Tell said...

Not the first time an accused rapist has stood up there to accept an award.

Dena said...

Kobe Bryan won an Oscar?

Do Tell said...

yep

Dena said...

Gael Garcia Bernal looks like a snack with those frames.

drewh1979 said...

he should have gotten an oscar for his performance in getting off from that colorado case. he did it forced her into anal sex raped her (allegedly) and everyone knows it

Genee216 said...

Do Tell said...

@drewh yep.

T. W. said...

@Squee - Thanks. You have a valid point and so do others. A lot of us refuse to pay to see movies for various reasons. Reasons range from "today's films suck" to "I have a streaming service and/or access to bootlegs" to "I don't want to support Hollywood pervs."

As far as not watching the Oscars, I agree with others in that they have been rigged for a long time. Even if that is no reason to quit watching, myself and others feel like the Hollywood elite are preaching an agenda. These are not the only reasons people have stopped watching.

I have no access to ABC Network so I can't watch even if I wanted. Spending time with friends, acquaintances, and loved ones is more important to me.

I pray you and everyone here have a blessed week. See you in a while.

Genee216 said...

@do tell how dare you lol

Dena said...

Oh man, this song is my morning alarm & it's giving me PTSD. Love Sufjan still.

Maude Labowski said...

Shit, BB-8 was the only one who called out Kobe's rapist ass

T. W. said...

@Raging Bunnies - I love you as well and Amen!

Humor Me said...

That had to be the shortest performance for a best song nominee......

Do Tell said...

I don't have cable, but there are free live streams of the Oscars all over the place.

hothotheat said...

+1 He settled out of court when she sued him and she demanded and got an apology.

Do Tell said...

@Genee lol

T. W. said...

Kobe Bryant won for best documentary short. That's nice because at least it's not make believe (I hope). Documentaries are underrated.

When is the Academy going to have a category for best comedy? Think of all the comedies that should have won best picture. I would rather laugh than cry any day.

Jack Rabbit said...

Yay Allison!! She's a great actress...very good comedic actress too. Love her in Mom, glad she won!

What's up with that Hawkins woman? My God, she looks skeletal. I'm thinking bulimia because her teeth look discolored. She looks like a dish rag.

I'm flipping back and forth and only caught the tail end...did Kimmel call some young kid a little bastard?

drewh1979 said...

kobe had to buy his wife a huge ass ring! no business like ho business

Do Tell said...

The Oscars this year is a shitty-commercial-having telecast. No good ads at all except for the "Return of Roseanne" trailers.

filmfanb said...

Think I am more excited about CDAN after th Oscars rather than the Oscars themselves. Trying to figure out how to get through work without getting caught

Speech_teacher said...

I don't care what anybody says, I love Mark Hamil. Always have. Always will. Luke, Han and Leia will always be A+ to me. With that said, I didn't really like that song from Call Me By Your Name. Only animated feature I saw was Fernando (which I liked). Heard Coco was good, maybe i should find it and see it.

T. W. said...

@Do Tell - what are the free live streams? Google is no help. The streaming sites want a code from the cable or satellite provider. I have Roku and it asks for the same. I do have Amazon Prime...

Spider Rico said...

I vote for Fred Flintstone for best actor. Grandpa from the Munster's for supporting actor. Best Actress I'll have to go with Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie and supporting it's a toss up between Daisy Duke, and Diana Prince Of Wonder Woman.

Seriously Lets not forget these great actors and performances of the past (Al Lettieri Godfather, was so underrated, as was Richard Ward Brubaker, Sydney Lassick (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest), John Cazale..so damn good. Fredo? Not easy to be pathetic. Bill Nunn Radio Raheem, Giancarlo Esposito, Buggin Out, Yaphet Kotto, Across 110th Street - he and Quinn? Anyone see Tim Heidecker in The Comedy/ Amazing performance. Jason Patric in Narc and Rush. Why is he not working more?? All phenomenal actors never won Oscars and enriched our lives and so many more!

Best Picture was the woman on beach still photo used at the end of Barton Fink, or best Picture should be Groundhog Day which got overlooked and robbed. As did Shawshank, 12 Angry Men. Se7en, Dr Strangelove, Citizen Kane, Boogie Nights, Do The Right Thing...etc..

Best VFX the explosion of crimson mist jettisoning from Silozzo's head in the Godfather. Still incredible to this day. The fly on Jack Elam's face in Once Upon a Time in the West.? Or the ticket stub in that film flying off frame? Incredible stuff...

Best Comedy performance would be the Paperboy in "Better Off Dead" who is still looking for his Two Dollars, or Dan Aykroyd in Neighbors, Dudley Moore in "!0," Woody in Kingpin, Griffin Dunne, After Hours, Kurt Russel, Used Cars..etc...oh Matthau in Bad News or Odd Couple..Gene Wilder Wonka, Young Frakenstein...Sandra Bernhard The King Of Comedy. Susan Peretz Chris Sarandon, Judith Malina all amazing in Dog Day Afternoon.... C'mon man...

Best Director hands down would be Stanley Kubrick, Welles, Hitchcock, Lumet (See Prince of the City now, or any of his greats) Leone, Fellini...

If I could I would give an Oscar to these folks and so many more - way to many many to mention. Just remember these GIANTS of the past tonite...amazing artists who have gone forgotten, but their artistry continues on...

Thanks guys!

Do Tell said...

Fuck the Academy Museum. Debbie Reynolds tried her whole life to put one together and even asked the Academy to help her and they wouldn't. I hope Todd Fisher gives them NOTHING from what he still has of her memorabilia.

But haha at the Overlook Hotel ad.

T. W. said...

Can someone please recommend good stuff I can watch on Amazon? I forgot to cancel my free trial & I have no clue how to use it let alone know what to watch. I'm signing off for 30 minutes or so, so I thank you in advance.

Dena said...

Bob Geldof much?

Do Tell said...

TW here is the one I am watching: https://vaughnlive.tv/oscars

Humor Me said...

And NOW they start playing people off? at the 2 hr. mark??? Booooo.

Do Tell said...

They have to play people off since they stupidly want to allow time for a do over for Moonlight to get Best Picture.

Humor Me said...

Three-peat for Dunkirk - film editing!!

drewh1979 said...

i want the 'get out' guy to do his job

T. W. said...

Google sucks. Kobe won for "Dear Basketball." My second search says it is an animated short film, not a short documentary. All I know is it is short and it won.

Do Tell said...

come onnnnn In Memoriam!

T. W. said...

@Do Tell - Thank you! I'm gonna dig out the ethernet cable and take a look see. I hope they finish in an hour cuz I gotta get up early.

lurkingxshewolf said...

O no, stop this Jimmy. Stop.

Do Tell said...

Kimmel is so unfunny.

Do Tell said...

You're quite welcome, TW. It's been a good stream for me so far.

Dena said...

Lol @drew, same!

If I was one of those movie-goers I think I would literally piss my pants.

drewh1979 said...

margot robbie, wonder woman, del toro and lupita going to the local movie theatre to meet with the peasants!

Do Tell said...

crap the stream froze. Hope it is fixed quickly

Fairylights said...

Me too Dena.....I would die. Can you imagine Lin Manuel Miranda delivering a sub to you in the movie?

drewh1979 said...

arnie hammer hot dog cannon! theatre goers introducing tiffany haddish

Jack Rabbit said...

What in the actual FUCK is Maya Rudolph wearing? My God, it's like she told her stylist "make me as fug as humanly possible" and the stylist exceeded her wildest dreams. Seriously, she looks mentally ill in that get up.

Julia H said...

86!!! 💪

Do Tell said...

:/ I would love to have seen Thomas Lennon win an Oscar.

drewh1979 said...

tiffany haddish cracks me up

Sd Auntie said...

Dave Chappelle should be the next host for this snooze fest!

Do Tell said...

what is with Dave Chappelle wearing sunglasses? Coke pupils?

Sd Auntie said...

Preach Common!!!

Hortensia said...

I wish this site would go back to the "like" and "reply" format.
Some of the posters are so clever, or just right on with the commentary.
And some make me laugh out loud.

drewh1979 said...

greatest showman coming up to blow the roof off the joint!

lurkingxshewolf said...

I want Tiffany to host next year.

Sd Auntie said...

Thought the same thing Dena.. I think it's the fillers and hair color...no bueno

Speech_teacher said...

I have to say, this is the most boring Oscars in years. But I am anxiously waiting the song from Greatest Showman. If it doesn't win, there is no justice. Greatest Showman was the most entertaining movie I've ever seen. I have to say, I did enjoy Game Night, though.

drewh1979 said...

tiffany haddish would be a great host! take the crazy to the max and throw in chapelle as co host

Sd Auntie said...

Love Annabelle and Ashley! Good 4 them!

one_eyed_bob said...

+1 on Tiffany haddish hosting next year. Love the faux reassurance from Tiffany and Maya that there are still plenty of white people working the Oscars! Lol

Sd Auntie said...

Good idea drewh.

Do Tell said...

WTF happened to Annabella Sciorra? Were Ashley and Salma holding her up? She couldn't remember what it was she needed to say.

drewh1979 said...

what the hell happened to mira sorvinos face??!! omg annabelle is fab

one_eyed_bob said...

And tiffany’s Story about taking will and jada. smith on a groupon swamp tour is hilarious (google it)

Do Tell said...

This show just gets more heavyhanded, pretentious, selfrighteous, offbase and annoying every year.

drewh1979 said...

mira sorvino has had so much botox she can hardly move a muscle on her face

Do Tell said...

Could not stand the music from the Greatest Showman. So out of place for a period piece, so generic.

Sd Auntie said...

I think Mira looks good. Annabelle appeared to have anxiety.....she was raped by the beast allegedly.

Humor Me said...

Upset - i think....
Get Out - original screenplay

Sd Auntie said...

Oh boo boo on you Chenin blanc.

Kendrick Schroder said...

Congrats to JP, fellow alum of my college (not that it matters), for BOSP. Here's hoping for the best picture.

Dena said...

Get Out as best picture could be tonight's only upset.

drewh1979 said...

i assume original cast will do 'this is me' from greatest showman

vaguesser said...

Am I the only one who sees the logo as 90 Scars? :D

drewh1979 said...

thanks sad auntie! i knew you would know the back story behind annabelle...i hope the harvey monster didnt turn zendaya gay as has been rumoured, so freaking sad and it sucks

Dena said...

Blade Runner 2049 was the best movie that I ever briefly fell asleep during.

Sd Auntie said...

Speaking of Z!! Why is she dressed like an old lady???? Uggh

lurkingxshewolf said...

This guy is coked off his dick. Typical Brit. :')

drewh1979 said...

zendaya and greatest showman! chills...

Do Tell said...

ick

drewh1979 said...

mary j wont give up the standing o even in front of 2 billion people worldwide!

lurkingxshewolf said...

I know I stated I wanted a break down, but I didn't want an amateur dramatic break down. I wanted legit tears, Mary was closer; therefore Mary should get the oscar.

Do Tell said...

Christopher Walken, THE highlight of the entire night for me.

Sd Auntie said...

Emily Blinds dress is a NO...

Speech_teacher said...

Well, it's time to go see Greatest Showman for the 5th time. The fabulous music lifted me up in that short performance as much as when I saw the film. Speaking of Blade Runner 2049. We left in the middle because it was so bad. Did I miss something? Should I have seen the original to have understood it? Is it worth another shot?

Julia H said...

Ashley Judd has so many fillers in her face - it looks like she’s storing acorns for the winter

Sd Auntie said...

Blunt. Lol

Dena said...

Did not realize Rocky the Squirrel passed.

Humor Me said...

Who was left out of In Memory segment?

Jonathan Jones said...

@Julia H - I think Ashley actually got a new face for the event. It's longer, thinner and waxier than it used to be. If you watch the video of her screeching her woman's march poem, it looks like her cheeks are about to tear apart, they're so tight. Now she looks more... elongated. It strikes me as being very similar to Nicole Kidman's latest face, so maybe the same surgeon did both.

Her dress is actually very nice. Shame about her personality.

I wish Rose McGowan would crash the event and freak out on stage calling everyone out for their Harvey hypocrisy!

T. W. said...

Isn't Eddy Veder the Pearl Jam guy?

Why is the live stream at vaughnlive.tv not showing all the dead, only audio? This is the most important part of the show.

HOW DID I NOT KNOW ROBERT OSBORNE PASSED!!!

Speech_teacher said...

Still stunned that the terrible Remember Me song won. Hubby walked out saying it's rigged. Oh well. Saw who died, so I'm turning it off. See you in the funny papers!!

Sd Auntie said...

Hiep.Thi.Li died of stomach cancer in December. She was on Heaven and Earth. So sad

Dena said...

Someone always tries to get away with pants.

Humor Me said...

How many does that make Shape of Water?

dummypants said...

These 4 men and Greta Gerwig... love it!

one_eyed_bob said...

F*ck...wanted PT Anderson to win best director

Jonathan Jones said...

Wow, Maya Rudolph's outfit...

So THAT'S what happened to Baby Jane.

Fairylights said...

The academy must be tone deaf. I can't believe Remember Me won.

ladybugmo1 said...

What the hell is wrong with Jane Fonda?

Sd Auntie said...

Now that's how older women should look...Hello Madonna. Mirren and Fonda

Dena said...

Who wore it better: Jane & Helen or Krystal & Alexis?

lurkingxshewolf said...

Is Gary looking at the statue, thinking about how he can use it to beat up his current wife with? :/

Humor Me said...

Lovely speech by Gary Oldman. He seems surprised.

Itcanhappen said...

Helen

MonicaM said...

I thought gary oldman was the child molester?

Humor Me said...

and no Casey Affleck.....
