The Oscars. Have at it.
..the winner is..ME, for not watching this bloated, self-congratulatory freak show of botoxed "artists" and cretinous producers. Viva Cinema! Down with Hollywood! :)
Yeah, it's actually really---zzzzzzzzz.
 Yep! Home with a sick Jazz Princess, "Goodfellas" is on tv. Now that's a film! "We'll hang the furs in the freezer with the meat."
A very flawed broadcast, but better than last year's. I hate Brett Ratner and I'm glad he wound up NOT producing the show, but I would have enjoyed seeing Eddie host.
All the love for The Artist will seem puzzling a few years from now. It's a cute little movie, but it's paper thin and cloying.
4 - completely agree.
Was great to see Christopher Plummer win an Oscar.
Confess that I was holding out for Terence Malick/Tree of life. Know it was a love/hate option and I just loved it with every fibre of my being. That such convivial tripe as "The Artist" (in name only) wins out, well that's nearly as bad as "Crash" winning....but I keep watching!!
 With you on Tree of Life. Loved it. "The Artist" isn't as bad as "Crash" by a long shot because it's not some puffed up, pretentious "social issue" movie. It's charming in its way, it's just not THAT good. I liked the Scorsese movie very much as well as the Descendants.
Tree of Life was great/near great. A lot of people have a negative reflex for anything with that sort of ambition, but if you can just accept what they were going for, you gotta see how well-done it is.
Tree of Life? Unwatchable. I can't remember very seeing anything less like a movie that was marketed as a movie. Absolutely stomach-churning horrible.
 That's what I love - with The Artist, everyone says, "Oh, its nice. It's charming. It's cute." With The Tree of Life, you get "It changed my life" or "I walked out 20 minutes in." I know which one I'd rather discuss, that's for sure.
