    Was upstairs watching the biggies w/my Mom and have caught up w/the three pages that were created while I was up there.

    I really didn't have a favourite in the Best Actress race, but Jennifer Lawrence has really come across as a very grounded and charming young lady and I *loved* her speech. Although, ITA w/you all, as w/whom it was rushing to help her, she should have stayed down.

    DDL is such a dorky guy, but he's a funny and obscenely talented dorky guy. I would also love to see that version of Lincoln w/Meryl playing the President. If only... Congratulations to him on becoming the first actor to win 3 Best Actor Oscars.

    And I am thrilled that Argo won Best Picture!! A shame that Ben had to rush his speech because of the "trying to not go long at Award Shows" stupidity, because just about everyone know they're going to go long. A rant for another time though. Anyway...Really happy for Ben, as it was looking like his career had flat lined for good a few years ago and I've always liked him for some reason, so very happy for him tonight.

    And that's another Oscars in the book. I think I can sum up how I felt about the show and Seth this way...

    For once since the Cdn Curling Association moved the Championship Final of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts to Prime Time, which is always Oscar Sunday, I was so very, very, very happy they did. I at least had something else to check out inbetween the actual awards being given out and during some of the more awkward and flatter moments. I know there are some out there that were not so lucky.

    Of course, things were also made more bearable due to all of you!! I say it every year, but there is nothing like following the Oscars here on FSU. Thanks to one and all for the great snark and posts!!

    I think my girl JLaw's fall threw her off her game, and she prolly didn't give the whole speech she would've.

    I think it was pretty quintessentially JLaw that she fell, honestly It fits in with her general irreverent attitude and awkwardness

    She doesn't usually give long, thought-out speeches. And she says she never really prepares much on the fly. AND I'm guessing for the Oscars, brevity was her best chance at avoiding something like an f-bomb. She probably didn't trust herself, lol!

    I saw one posted on Twitter a little while ago but can't find it now. Try Googling it though because I know someone out there made one!

    Jennifer shouldn't worry about being one of those Oscar winners who are out of work the day after the ceremony. She's got three more Hunger Games movies, 1-2 X-Men films and a slew of other Oscar bait films, including TWO more with David O'Russel. It will be a long time before she becomes irreverent to the current movie world. :p

    Well, if it's any consolation, I "hate" the following Best Actress winners:

    Julia Roberts -won for a Lifetime Movie of the Week and has no range. She has actually managed to be unconvincing at portraying herself

    Sandra Bullock -won for an even worse Lifetime Movie of the Week and has no range

    Gwenyth Paltrow -although she has some talent, she was the weakest of the nominees in the year she won, constantly puts down her home country, named her child after a fruit, made comments like " I was sitting in front of my wood burning stove ,when I realized I hadn't thought of dessert " and " I would rather die than let my children eat cup of Noodle soup" ... the list goes on.

    I admit that ( especially compared to those three) Jennifer Lawrence is a solid actress; I don't think she was really the strongest in this field, but I wasn't crazy about Jessica Chastain either. I just found her speech to be very cringeworthy/awkward and contrived , as in ,worse than Anne Hathaway's GG and Halle Berry's Oscar combined. I will admit, however, that tripping up the stage was one of those caught off guard endearing moments. I have liked her in some movies, and she wasn't bad in SLP. Maybe she'll grow on me.

    I wouldn't have minded. Laura was okay and First Ladies are supposed to be neutral, picking causes like getting kids to read or childhood obesity, etc. that we can all get behind. Of course, it would have reminded me that Bush was in office but my annoyance over that was fairly constant for 8 years so I got use to it.

    Now, I just adore Michelle, more than Hillary when she was FL, so I wouldn't have been as super excited to see Laura as I was to see Michelle. But I wouldn't have snarked like I would have over Nancy Reagan who I could. not. stand.

    I don't think having the FL on such an event is inappropriate. Having the POTUS would be.

    I liked JLaw better in other movies. It was ridiculous that she won against 3 of those actresses who were better (not counting Wallis because I have not seen the movie). It was not a surprise though, since she won the SAG and the GG (comedy), just like Paltrow who also won against stronger performances. It was not as bad as Sandra Bullock's win but why can't the academy respect older women who bring depth to their performances? Jennifer could win 5 Oscars at this rate, before she grows old.

    Yes, exactly. She has no chance of being irrelevant any time in the next decade with all the projects she has lined up.

    The highlights of the evening for me were:

    Argo won Best Picture -very happy for Ben
    Ang Lee won Best Director (I was OK with Spielberg winning it too)- his reaction after each Pi award was wonderful.
    DDL's win- although the most predictable award of the night; totally deserved
    Adele singing 'Skyfall'
    Barbra Streisand singing 'The way we were'
    Catherine Zeta Jones has quite a singing voice! I hated Chicago's win that year, but she was awesome in it.

    Looking back, Lee's BD Oscar was justifiable. It was perhaps the most challenging movie to make this year. I had read somewhere that not many thought one could make a movie out of that book.

    FFS, show some pride in your appearance, chickie, especially when you're at the biggest and most-watched awards show on TV! My momma would me bald-headed if I was on camera looking like that. Hell, my hair looks better when I do an early morning run to the store to grab a gallon of milk.
