    Quentin! Oh yeah baby! I picked Flight, but glad to be wrong on this choice.

    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Yeah Oscar hates the shit out of Leo.

    9 out of 10 people agree that in a room full of 10 people one person will always disagree with the other 9.

    The only categories I have a feeling about are:

    Best Film : Django Unchained
    Best Actress : Naomi Watts for "The Impossible"

    Other than those, no strong feelings about who should win what.

    Not entirely sure Spielburg is a shoe in, Ang Lee has been tipped by many to take this one.

    Daniel Day Lewis and Anne Hathaway are the only real "Just give them the award let them use the extra time on their speech instead" entries.



    Edit: Well there you go.

    If they have him back, he'll do better. He's been pretty nervous all night - this is a new venue for him.

    Honestly I don't think he's been bad at all tonight, if anything I've enjoyed it. He's not stuffy and pretentious, nor is he trying too hard to get himself over with ill fitting humour.

    There's people waiting to rip him just because he's known for crude humour and mainstream entertainment that goes against the stereotypical "Tux and gown" setting that is the AA's.

    Oh, I agree - I've enjoyed him tonight completely. Much fresher than some of the other long-time hosts.

    Early on he had a few jokes that just fell flat; especially in the first hour. But after the first hour he got better and less and less bad jokes.

    Does anyone know what he said about Rihanna because all my friends keep posting about it but no one will take the time to tell me what Seth said.

    Chris Brown and Rihanna consider "bloody and violent "Django Unchained" "a date movie""

    Am I the only one bothered by the fact Michelle Obama televised this, rather than appear on stage?

    And suddenly the Oscars are over shadowed by every news network focusing on how Michelle Obama cut her bangs.

    There you go, Scrapbot. Is my Signature small enough now? Will you finally shut up, you automated pretentious &##(@)!?

    I wouldn't want to taint my flesh by appearing live at the Oscars, either.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.
    - Thucydides

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.
    - Eugen Weber

    I bet the Secret Service asked her not to show live - security would have been awful for everyone.

    My favorite joke of the night.

    'Django' is a movie where a woman is subjected to violence, or as we call it, a Chris Brown and Rihanna date movie.”

    Stopped respecting Oscars when Depp didn´t win for fear and loathing, Oldman didn´t win for Dracula and Titanic beat Starship troopers for best special effects. it´s nothing but a pad on the back club for latte drinking old men.

    Didn't watch it, just one useless PR jippo but from what I've read it was perfectly bland just like it should be
    The hosts, the performances were okey but nothing more than that.
    Putins agresssions brings back the cold war.
