I'm stunned, period pieces don't typically win these types of awards.

Well it appears we have now entered the 'let's grind some of these awards out in a hurry' part of the show...

Wow, I would have been satisfied with at least Hellboy picking that up.. but Jesus. Another TDK loss.

I just really didn't care for Benjamin Button.

I have a feeling the voters are throwing a bone to TDK by giving the only award to Ledger as a means of "legitimacy."

What, the kids from Twilight... that's why they kept the presenters secret.

Show a lot of things happing at once,
Remind everyone what’s going on (what’s going on)
And when every shot you show a little improvement
Just show it all or it will take to long
That’s called a montage (montage)
Ooh we want montage (montage)

It's just not the Oscars without "Twilight" and "High School Musical" clips.

My Other Self 02-22-09 08:28 PM

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
Why do they keep showing clips from movies that aren't even nominated? These montages suck.

DGibFen 02-22-09 08:28 PM

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
Really? In the Hollywood romance section we get "High School Musical 3"? (For some reason, "Nick and Norah" doesn't bother me, but I kinda liked that movie.)

Spileberg or Lucas presenting?
