Every time I see Rick Baker in anything, I think of Summer School: "that is why we admire makeup artist and creature creator Rick Baker very very very [etc.] much. 100 words on the dot. You can count them if you want."
Aaaaand, there's the Academy kissing Oprah's butt again.
:yay Jimmy Kimmel after the Oscars! I can't wait to see if he can top "The Handsome Men's Club"!
All we have left is the "In Memorium" segment, the lead acting awards and Best Picture. They might actually make it on schedule!
Summer School reference and Oprah hate? Will you be my best friend, Critical?
I thought Esperanza Spalding did a lovely job with that song, although I'd hate to be sitting behind her.
I held it together in that "In Memorium" segment until Peter Falk - "As you wish" = :bawl
Nicely done In Memorium 2012. I loved the black and white photos. They kept it simple and the audience was quiet.
I really appreciate when the audience holds their respects until the end.
Beautiful In Memoriam. No clapping (thank you very much) during. Few quibbles (Steve Jobs? And I hate the trend to label actresses as "actors") but over all well done.
Peter Falk. As you wish. Tearing.
I have no clue who's going to win Best Actress. I keep going back and forth between Viola and Meryl. I want both of them to win. I keep thinking Meryl will win, but then hoping Viola will take it....and then it flip flops the other way! :lol
