I've never tried a live blog before, so I don't know if this will be a success or not. I tend to be more the type of person who likes to sit and analyze things a bit, so stay tuned later today and this week for real analysis. For now, I'll just post random exclamations during the very brief live nomination ceremony.
Is something wrong with my clock? Why aren't they starting?
Ah! There we go! Three minutes to air! Hopefully I'll get a few right!
Lawrence looks great!
OMG McCarthy made it!
Max Von Sydow for Extremely Loud!
Glenn Close and Rooney Mara make it in!
Demian Bechir! I Love It... And now Gary Oldman too!
TREE OF LIFE!!!! MALICK!!!
Margin Call and A SEPARATION! HURRAY! screenplay.
Bullhead. Footnote. In Darkness. Monsieur Lazhar. A Separation,
TWO foreign films for animated. NO TINTIN!
TREE OF LIFE MAKES IT INTO BEST PICTURE!!!!! I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW!!!
Extremely Loud makes it in out of nowhere for best picture! A total of Nine nominees!
I almost got the best picture correct. I predicted the first 8, but had Ides Of March as 9 and ELAIC as number 10.
Looking over the list of snubs now... Leonardo Dicaprio and Michael Fassbender. Tilda Swinton and Charlize Theron. In Supporting: Albert Brooks, Armie Hammer, Brad Pitt, Shailene Woodley.
I went 5 for 5 in the directors!
Only two songs made it in, and I predicted them both wrong. GRRRRR..
Harry Potter gets 3 noms... Makeup, Visual Effects and Art Direction.
My final thought--How do I get to be one of the people screaming in the audience?
More analysis to come later today!!!
