  1. I’m ready for the show.

  2. I couldn’t care less lol.

  3. To bad the oscars have lost all integrity. And 10 nominees? Lame.

    If only the oscars were as honest as the razzies. Best moment in oscar history? Brando sending the native american by proxy to reject the academy.

  4. We’re having a blast in the live chat, most people we’ve ever had attend one!


    • Sorry I missed it. Something told me to log on during the Oscars but I didn’t listen.

      • I should have promoted it more/ahead of time – but I didn’t expect it to be as successful as it was and have so many people join in.


  5. Seriously the worst AA I’ve EVER watched !!!!!

  6. This was the best Academy Award Oscar production EVER. The staging and guest stars including Kirk Douglas were just wonderful! The co-hosts were perfect especially Ann Hathaway — she ignited excitement and her voice in her song was awesome — didn’t know she could sing, let’s hear more in her movies! All the dresses were beautiful including all the changes Ann Hathaway went through….stunning! Sandra Bullock and Jeff Bridges were fantastic. The person/team who produced this whole production tonight did a great job and the touch of PS 22 was wonderful. Thank you for a front row seat at home to a great four and a half hours of producing a great program while honoring the movies and entertainment of last year. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  7. I thought it was a good show .
    congrats to all the winners .
    I wish The Fighter had won Best Picture,
    But The Kings Speech is an excellent film.

  8. I am very happy with the Oscars this year although the only thing that turns my stomach is the Oscar for most original screenplay. Trust me I have seen the kings speech and I’m very happy with it but I believe that Inception should have won. Christopher Nolan took a original idea and pushed it to the Max in my opinion that deserves all the credit in the world.

  9. Personally I hope that when Nolan wins The Oscar that his winning film is more like The Prestige than Inception.
