I stayed up till 5am local time to watch it live.
It would have been a dream to see District 9 win best picture but alas.
I'm just happy Avatar didn't win everything.

I now want to see District 9 very badly.

Also, Neil Patrick Harris!

Oh District 9 was awesome! We rented it and I was so sorry we didn't see it in the theater.

Neil Patrick Harris was great- he should've been the host. Steve and Alec were meh, nothing special.

I wish they'd leave off some of the technical awards and foreign and such.....knock an hour or so off, lol.

LOVED the salute to horror movies! :supz: Also, the bittersweet salute to John Hughes....I (like many of us) was a teen when those movies first started coming out, Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller being faves.
I was sad to see that they put Patrick Swayze at the beginning of the memorial-compilation and he was a bit overlooked.

Best Animated Feature- UP. :thumb: It won for its music, too!

I was so happy that Christof Waltz got Best Sup Actor for Inglourious Basterds- :supz: Same for Monique as Best Sup Actress!

Jeff Bridges was a given and I haven't seen Crazy Hearst yet, so can't really comment, but was happy for him.

Sandra Bullock's speech was one of the best I've seen. Sweet and funny. I loved Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia but I think they figured "she's got a few...." so gave it to Sandra for (what I hear) was her terrific turn in The Blind Side.

I was super-duper surprised that The Hurt Locker won for Best Director and Best Picture! :o

Was the Academy sending a message? And if so, to whom? James Cameron, that "just because you spent $xxxxxxx.xx making this movie and it made $xxxxxx.xx you don't get to win!" ? Or, was it saying to small, independent filmmakers that "we value what you're doing, keep doing it, and we'll reward you." ?

My vote would have gone to Avatar. :) But again.....I have yet to see The Hurt Locker.

The show was ok....every year I think they need to cut stuff out and shorten it, but every year I tune in! :D

The Hurt Locker is excellent, Laura. Very suspenseful, and worthy of an Oscar.

Tom Hanks' announcement of The Hurt Locker as the winner was sort of odd. He was practically running by the microphone as he did. I'm sure he did it that way because of a lack of time, but Mr. eejm and I looked at each other wondering if The Hurt Locker had actually won, or if Tom just forgot to mention the other nine nominees. :)

LOVE the Christoph Waltz clip, Laura. I'm guessing we'll be seeing a lot more of him in the coming years, which is a good thing. It looks like he has a really good sense of humor.

Yes! I love when an actor (or musician) is laid-back enough to not take himself too seriously and have some fun! :D

I also thought Tom seemed a bit rushed but was also glad....I mean, we'd seen the clips/presentations of all 10 nominees- why read them again?
I thought the actor/actress nominations were quite redundant! Each one gets individual high-praise......and then their names need to be read again?? *groan*

I didn't watch the Oscars, but I'm SO glad Avatar didn't win best picture or best director.
The only worthwhile aspects of it were the technical jiggery-pokery, and it won for those :)
It's all about the music.

That moment did seem weird to me when it happened. I did think of Kanye lol.

The Oscars is a giant movie preview show to me. hehe I hadn't heard of 1/2 the films. I really want to see Up now. That looked good!
