Frank DiGiacomo February 25, 201312:04 am

Frank DiGiacomo February 25, 201312:00 am

Ben Affleck -- "You can't hold grudges. It's hard. But you can't hold grudges."

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:59 pm

Ben Affleck gives the fastest Oscar speech in history. And thanks his wife, who "I don't normally associate with Iran."

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:56 pm

Best Picture. Argo! Amazing.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:55 pm

Jack Nicholson needs a tailor. Stat.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:53 pm

Michelle Obama still has bangs.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:53 pm

Jack Nicholson is ad-libbing.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:50 pm

Daniel Day-Lewis is funnier than Seth MacFarlane.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:49 pm

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis. Streep didn't even need to open the envelope.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:46 pm

Meryl Streep is, too.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:46 pm

Meryl Street is wearing one helluva dowdy dress.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:44 pm

Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence. She got it.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:38 pm

Ang Lee says he won't "waste" time naming the cast, but then thanks his lawyer and his agent.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:35 pm

Ang Lee for Best Director.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:34 pm

Jane Fonda is still foxy, even if she's starting to look like Carol Burnett.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:31 pm

Like 'Django Unchained,' Quentin Tarantino's Oscar acceptance speech has two endings.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:28 pm

Actually, he gamed the system. Faked out the orchestra.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:28 pm

Quentin Tarantino is going to hear the 'Jaws' theme. Guaranteed.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:27 pm

Original Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:26 pm

Chris Terrio is sweating and talking like he's speeding.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:25 pm

Best Adapted Screenplay. Argo. Chris Terrio

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:19 pm

Surprise of the night: Scarlett Johansson's "Before My Time" song for 'Chasing Ice' is really freaking good.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:16 pm

Is this the Oscars or the Tonys?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:14 pm

'Life of Pi' Score Composer and Oscar Winner Mychael Danna is hard to spell.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:09 pm

MacFarlane's Rex Reed joke works for me!

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201311:01 pm

In Memoriam: Andrew Sarris, Lois Smith. Miss you.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:54 pm

But, seriously, Ben, it was a joke. And that movie really sucked.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:53 pm

Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck was furious about MacFarlane's remark about 'Gigli'. That would explain Affleck's weird comment when he came onstage shortly afterward. http://www.deadline.com/2013/02/oscars-2013-live-coverage-commentary-nikki-finke-live-snarking/

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:41 pm

Adele's 'Skyfall' performance is oddly flat. I suspect that Harvey Weinstein had Trazodone included in the Oscars gift bag in honor of 'Silver Linings Playbook' and everyone has taken some.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:36 pm

Especially if she gets some velocity.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:35 pm

The "unstoppable" Adele.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:34 pm

The Hathaway haters are already finding fault with her speech. She didn't thank the "I Dreamed A Dream" writers.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:31 pm

Seriously? I wish I got this much attention when I was an intern.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:28 pm

The fake Michael Haneke is tweeting a laugh riot. https://twitter.com/Michael_Haneke/status/305881087945605120

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:23 pm

Surprise! Best Supporting Actress Winner is Anne Hathaway

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:21 pm

Watching Mark Wahlberg and Ted, I couldn't help but think that this is an Oscars telecast that Charlie Kaufman might have imagined. But his would be funny.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:18 pm

This is the night of the white-haired men.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:16 pm

Here's some trivia on Oscar ties. http://weeklytrivia.blogspot.com/2004/09/oscar-ties.html

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:15 pm

An Oscar tie? For Sound editing?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:06 pm

Never thought I'd admit this, but Russell Crowe wasn't bad at all.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:05 pm

I'm really surprised that 'Les Miserables' didn't do better in the Oscar buzz department.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:00 pm

Oh, Les Miz.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 201310:00 pm

Chicago, DreamGirls honored. What next, The Music Man?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:59 pm

Jennifer Hudson is killing it.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:54 pm

Oh boy, Russell Crowe singing. Time to fold my laundry.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:53 pm

John Travolta actually looks good.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:53 pm

So, wait? The orchestra is not even in the house?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:52 pm

Michael Barker and Tom Bernard are having a great night.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:51 pm

Amour wins Best Foreign Film.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:27 pm

Shirley Bassey nails it. But why didn't the producers have her duet with Adele?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:25 pm

Shirley Bassey, please save the Oscars.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:24 pm

Hoping the Bond tribute is going to be more ambitious than just a film montage.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:12 pm

Wave Tank gets thanked. 'Life of Pi' guys played off with 'Jaws' theme.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:10 pm

Life of Pi gets Best Visual Effects, too.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:07 pm

Best Cinematography: Claudio Miranda, 'Life of Pi'

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:07 pm

That Avengers bit was so weird. Who's writing this stuff?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:05 pm

Avengers Assemble.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20139:01 pm

'Brave' wins for Best Animated Feature. Mark Andrews' kilt is most exciting thing about the Oscars so far.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:58 pm

After watching Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy, I'm thinking this may be the weirdest Oscars ever.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:52 pm

Quentin Tarantino has obviously been binge eating in response to all of those journalists' questions about violence in his work.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:51 pm

Jack Nicholson in the house.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:50 pm

Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz! It's going to be a night of surprises.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:49 pm

Tommy Lee Jones smiles a second time. World record.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:47 pm

Joaquin Phoenix clapping for Seth MacFarlane. Right before he goes backstage and kicks his ass.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:46 pm

William Shatner is still on?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:44 pm

Old soft shoe numbers are not appealing to a younger crowd.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:43 pm

If Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes his shirt off, I'm outta here.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:42 pm

Sock puppets have been introduced to the Oscars. Somewhere David Letterman is smiling.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:41 pm

The Oscars is deflating before my eyes.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:39 pm

"We Saw Your Boobs" would have been mildly funny if Peter Griffin had sung it. But on the Oscars?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:37 pm

William Shatner's tunic is massive.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:36 pm

First 'Star Trek' marketing reference.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:35 pm

Even Jennifer Lawrence's +1 looks like a younger Harvey Weinstein.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:34 pm

MacFarlane isn't tanking, but he's playing it too safe.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:34 pm

The opening is weirdly flat. Where's the pomp?

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:33 pm

Interesting that the Academy Awards are now simply introduced as "the Oscars" during the opening.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:32 pm

Academy knows "they screwed up," regarding Affleck. MacFarlane says. Safely funny.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:31 pm

Ron Jeremy reference? Wow.

Frank DiGiacomo February 24, 20138:31 pm

Tommy Lee Jones laughs! Score one for MacFarlane!
