  1. let the show begin!

  2. 1 for 1! Congrats Jared.

  3. Jonah Hill got robbed

    • ^What he said…

      or Fassbender.

  4. I was not surprised about Jared at all, I was extremely happy for him. I loved him in that film, he was superb. Whew!

  5. I guess I really need to see Gravity, Smaug the dragon looked so awesome and photo realistic, I thought for sure the Hobbit would at least win best CGI

    • Gravity, visually speaking, is unlike anything I have ever seen before.

      • Yeah, it accomplished something distinctive, visually. Smaug was great, as were the Jaeger sequences in Pacific Rim. But Gravity rendered something real, except that it wasn’t. So I think that Gravity deserved the win, with all due respect to the other films.

  6. It was a crime ‘Man of Steel’ wasn’t nominated in the SFX category

    • The only scene I saw that was worthy of a nomination was the flight scene, plus his cape managed to look real in some scenes but that’s just about it. Not that surprised that it didn’t get nominated.

      • There’s the opening scene with Krypton and Zod’s armor suit. I think the SFX of Man of Steel is better than The Lone Ranger.

        • Yeah there is that scene, but honestly who knows what the heck the people running these events are looking for. I have not seen The lone Ranger yet, but I can only assume that the scene that got them nominated was the train crash sequence which looked nice in the trailer.

          • Okay, say what you will about Man of Steel but the fact that it wasn’t nominated and Lone Ranger was is a complete travesty.

            • LOl you don’t think I find it odd that MOS wasn’t nominated for any effects category? Of the films nominated, Lone Ranger and Gravity are the films I did not see, so I am stuck in this position where I can’t make valid arguments about their nominations.

              • Gravity deserves every award it wins or gets nominated for. Lone Ranger I haven’t seen it either so I can’t make judgement on it either.

              • As I predicted, Gravity dominated the “Techies” award.

    • ^What he said…

  7. The krypton opening for mos was worthy of a nomination in my opinion.

  8. The Hunt was robbed, Bull****

  9. 2 for 2! Congrats Lupita

  10. Lupita N’Yongo for Ororo Munroe!

    • Oops, Nyong’o

  11. So happy for Lupita, very well deserved.

  12. Come on Leo, it’s you’re year brah

  13. Frozen over The Wind Rises!?

    • +1

      I know! Nothing against Frozen but it just seemed like The Wind Rises should have gotten it…

      • You guys have already seen it? It was just barely released stateside.

        • It was released last Friday where I lived, and just watched it today. Powerful stuff and thought it should have won, but Frozen was a close second.

  14. YES LUPITA! I’m very content with Jared and Lupita winning. I’m not sure who I’m pulling for most on Best Actor it’s between McConaughey and Ejiofor for me. As for Best Actress, I only really saw American Hustle and it seems like it’s most between Adams and Blanchett.

  15. Can anyone post a version of the photo without Lupita’s brother?

    • How can we not? He was right in the front.

  16. Pink still got it!!!!

  17. Really surprised The Great Gatsby won two awards, but it deserved both of them. Especially since otherwise Gravity seems to be cleaning house in the technical categories.

  18. Jesus, I’m not actually watching the show, just keeping track over updates. At this time it’s been 30 minutes since the last award?!! Christ, why must the Oscars waste so much time?

    • Well I guess they gotta pay tribute to film related topics in honor of cinema, and then you got all the bogus commercials…

  19. NIce! Spike Jonez for ‘Her’.

  20. Wow! I’m out of touch and out of the loop… Is that the same Spike Jonze who directed music videos back in the 1990s? I think he did a Beastie Boys video or two or some others…

    • Jonze used to do music videos. I don’t know if they were Beastie Boys vids but yeah he used to direct those. Then he went on to direct feature length stuff like Where the Wild Things Are, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and Her.

  21. 3 for 3! Congrats Alfonso!

  22. Nebraska & Wolf of Wallstreet went home empty handed.
    I actually saw Nebraska. It was like watching paint dry. Bruce Dern just played a grumpy version of himself.
    Once again Scorsese and DiCaprio got snubbed.

    • I don’t think DiCaprio was snubbed this year. This is the one time that I’m not like “OMG WHY NOT?” where he’s concerned, this time it belonged to McConaughey or Ejiofor and McConaughey won and rightfully so, especially if it wasn’t Ejiofor.

  23. If McConaughey doesn’t win I give up on Hollywood.

    So happy for Leto and Lupita!

  24. No surprise there. 4 for 4. Congrats Cate.

  25. 5 for 5. Congrats Matthew! Superb performance.

    • Everyone knows if you lose a ton of weight you’re coming home with a Oscar.

  26. Alright, alright, alright. Go Matthew !
    Congrats Jared. Both actors deserved their win.

  27. 6 for 6! 12 Years a Slave!

  28. Yep, Totally expected of the Academy. If it’s one thing that Hollywood loves more than Movies-About-Making-Movies (The Artist, Argo), it’s White Guilt (Crash, Dances with Wolves). >_> Oh well.

  29. 12 years a slave won top honor. Guilt is powerful in Hollywood.
    It was a nice shutout to the late Harold Ramis by Bill Murray.

    Captain Phillips and Philomena went home empty handed.

    • Naturally Captain Phillips wouldn’t win anything major. At it’s core, it a true story about the smart moves a ship captain made to protect his crew, and how the military destroyed a handful of terrorists to free him. And we all know Hollywood hates anything that makes the military look good.

      Also, 12 Years was an awesome movie, but even if it hadn’t been, white guilt will always rule the day in Hollywood.

      I’m with several of the other rant posters here. I haven’t watched the Oscars in probably 6 or 7 years, and didn’t this go-round either (althoug I would have loved to watch Ellen host it, she’s great.) The Academy is obviously biased and I don’t see the need to watch something that is just going to make me angry (life’s too short for that.)
