Christ. It usually takes at least 15 minutes before I wanna turn the channel ...not the first two.

Picked up at the end there but still overall not good. Except for the total agreement for how hot Anne Hathaway was.

That was a pretty good opening. Wow, who knew that Hugh Jackman could actually do more than just play Wolverine?

If Jackman could (and not take a paycut), he'd be doing a lot of musicals.

ok so far. i was wondering why the empty thread over at TV Talk, then realized that everyone else is here.

Angelina Jolie is really just too damn good looking. Especially when they go from her straight to Meryl Streep.

I think a lot of people were going to hate the opening no matter what. I think it was a pretty good song and dance number.

My Other Self 02-22-09 07:43 PM

I actually liked that opening number. I thought it was pretty funny. Jackman's doing alright. Loved the Wolverine plug at the end.

To some. I've never found her all that attractive.

really reminiscent of Billy Crystal, not as funny, but equally entertaining.

The final five? Oh, sorry wrong thread...

Does Tilda know she is wearing a burlap sack?

Well, this new format really ought to speed things up (?)

Dear God I hope they calm these nomination intros down, getting through this is going to take 10 minutes.

This is taking a long time.

Why does this feel like a rose ceremony from "The Bachelor" more than an awards show right now? I'm expecting someone to hand out four roses and an Oscar.

Oh god. At this rate, the whole shebang will be done no earlier than 4am. :lol:

A Sister Act reference.

I thought the intro was okay. Best part was: " I am a slumdog, I am a wrestler, I'll rent the reader, I'm wolverine"

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
I can't help it. I hate Jackman. He could do a barbershop version of Spinal Tap's Sex Farm and i'd loathe him.

Autotelik 02-22-09 07:46 PM

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
geez. they need to cut down the nominee introductions. way too long.

Derrich 02-22-09 07:46 PM

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
Did Angelica Huston just make a crack about Penelope Cruz's accent? And when did Cruz morph into Audrey Hepburn?

I'm going to hate this show. Not showing clips from their performances? blah!

When did The View starting doing the Oscars?

This is insane, I'm stunned they're leading off with this marathon.

Somehow a stripper is a "real working girl"?

Just to jump on the bandwagon, this nominee introduction format blows. They're all going to be like this?

My Other Self 02-22-09 07:47 PM

Re: The 81st Academy Awards 2008 Awards Show Discussion.
 
Penelope Cruz? That's a shocker.

Patrick_N 02-22-09 07:47 PM

70 seconds delay. words are so dangerous... OMG! this takes forever to get just one category done!
