    I'm beginning to wish that the boulder had won in 127 hours. Franco is killing me.

    Don't agree - that is an amazing movie - certainly not a TV movie - which I happen to think The Social Network has more claim to be IMOH.

    I thought it looked more like that outline they put on a picture of a cow showing where the different cuts of meat are (although Benning herself looked great)

    He needs a joint. He should have smoked before the ceremony.

    If it was me, I would have had a smoke before.

    I just didn't see any creative shots in The King's Speech or anything really daring. IMO Inception deserves Best Director the most, but I think The Black Swan or Social Network would've been much more interesting choices. The King Speech was a very straightforward telling of a typical feel-good story, IMO of course.

    I'm wishing they televised the Governor's Awards not the Oscars. That sure looked like a lot more fun.

    The whole soundtrack is just amazing.

    :rofl:

    It's from the Battle in Henry V. Highly recommend that soundtrack. Patrick Doyle's first score.

    I don't think The King's Speech looked like a TV Movie, but I don't think it deserves Best Picture and definitely not Best Director.

    So he is old enough to be her dad. Wow, still not as bad and Zeta Jones/Douglas.

    Men don't age as well as women, IMO :)

    I can't imagine having to do it with a 60 year old and I"m 40.... :scream:

    These ads for the Dana Delany show are not making me want to watch it.
