    Somebody have a stream for me somewhere? Where I can watch the red carpet and the actual show?

    If I pull on the Red Carpet Open Thread will it come undone.

    I predict:

    In the next four hours, half of us are gonna want to throw something at our TV/computer.

    In the next six hours, Sascha and Ryan will seriously reconsider running this site for another year.

    In the next eight hours, half of us will be in a drunken stupor, muttering obscenities.

    In the next two days, half of us will announce quite loudly that we are done with Oscarwatching.

    in the next six months, those people will slowly climb on board for another round.

    In the next year, we will claim how this year’s Best Picture is the biggest piece of shit ever made or seen.

    In 365 days (give or take), we will be rooted once again, wondering why Leonardo DiCaprio was passed over for sterling work in The Great Gatsby.

    I have no problem with Kelly Osbourne but E! Red Carpet coverage bores me.

  12. February 24, 2013

    Naw I don’t like Kelly Osbourne either. But I watch E! because they always get all the best stars.

    I just spotted a Chinese celeb/starlet named Pin-Pin (sp) (I forgot her family name) or at least someone who looks like her about 15 minutes ago. As usual, she is very beautiful.

    Is there any chance that Hollywood is in process of doing some Chinese-related epic or modern-day movies? (She walked the red carpet but on her own so I suspect she happens to have come with Ang Lee or someone related to Life of Pi project….)

  14. Jade Fox
    February 24, 2013

    I see you Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams.

  15. Bryce Forestieri

    Paddy I read your great wrap up of the best of 2012. There are some wonderful titles for me to pursue. Movies that either haven’t opened here or i overlooked. Thanks. It is always lovely to read how people react to sublime movie moments and how it has an indelible impact on them. That’s what it’s all about! Cheers!

    Uh E! That’s Octavia Spencer, not Viola Davis.

  20. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    Olivia and Zoe look fab. Zoe must be a size 0. These women are dressing so chic, they’re taking the fun out of talking about the fashion! Where’s Joan Rivers?
    Chastain looks good.

  21. February 24, 2013

    Octavia Spencer is “going everywhere tonight”! Love her!

    Just saw Jason Schwartzman. He looks amazing. Old Hollywood slick glamour. Nice. :D

  24. eclipse22
    February 24, 2013

    i have a nagging feeling AMOUR might steal the show! don’t know why …maybe has to do with listening to french coverage of the oscar red carpet, i don’t look forward to the most annoying part of the night, them translating live what presenters and host says .
    That shizz annoys the heck out of me because i don’t need the translation, i’m bilingual, i keep thinking shut upppppp!
    maybe this year they…

    YES in the corner of the tv screen just appeared sign saying this program will be available in multi-language woohoo hope this means no voice-over or subtitles distracting me!

    I wish I knew Jacki Weaver in real life

  28. February 24, 2013

    Jennifer Lawrence looks perfect!!! YAY!!! :D

  29. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    THAT is TOO MUCH gown on Jennifer. That train is obscene.

  30. Greg Schlager
    February 24, 2013

    J.Law is wearing the same exact Dior dress I wanted her to wear. She looks like a winner tonight, perfect beauty!

  31. February 24, 2013

    THAT is TOO MUCH gown on Jennifer. That train is obscene.

    If you are in danger of winning an Oscar, you MUST wear the dress you want everyone to see you in in photos long after you’re dead. THAT is one of those dresses.

  32. Robin Write
    February 24, 2013

    Whenever people write JLAW I just think of Jude Law. And I don’t want that.

  33. William Chase
    February 24, 2013

    Oh I pray everyday that the craziness of Hollywood doesn’t change Jennifer Lawrence’s perfect personality.
    “I’m staaaarving!”

  34. christiannnw
    February 24, 2013

    I was wowed by Jennifer Lawrence when I saw her top half get out of the limo, but that train is brain-numbing.

  35. Leocdc
    February 24, 2013

    How much time until it really begins? :)
    Thanks AD for this whole year of Oscar’s coverage, your insightful notes and reviews and your unending philosophy of going deeper with every movie you love.
    You’re not perfect, but how much I love you :)

    So, here’s hoping my favourites win their nominated Oscars. Not hoping so many miracles, but I pray for Riva, Ang Lee and Haneke to bring some gold to their respective houses :D

  36. SallyinChicago

    Q Wallis just sang The Sun Will come out Tomorrow — from ANNIE! She nailed it.

  37. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    Jacki Weaver looks like a star this Academy Awards.
    Jennifer looks beautiful – oh to be young and spontaneous. She has great spirit.
    For me, so far – Jessica Chastain is #1. So elegant.

  38. christiannnw
    February 24, 2013

    Seriously, I’m afraid she might fall up the stairs to the podium should she win.

  39. February 24, 2013

    I don’t know why Olivia Munn is there but she looks freakin’ fabulous.

  40. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    Oh and great to see expression lines and wrinkles on wonderful women like Sally Field and Jacki Weaver.

  41. The J Viewer
    February 24, 2013

    Ha…. Quvenzhane Wallis is so cute.

    And she loves eating pizza when it’s all been done. [LOL] Good for you, kid.

    All the best!

  42. February 24, 2013

    I almost feel like a jerk for hoping Riva wins, but I’m not changing my mind.

    February 24, 2013

    You can keep Bradley Cooper and George Clooney – the sexiest man alive (or the one with the cutest dimples and sexy voice) is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He makes me smile just looking at him. And a great actor.

  45. Bryce Forestieri
    February 24, 2013

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt OMG <3 <3 <3 Another perfect human being. I love that he's with Sally Field :)

  46. February 24, 2013

    FYI, I will not be able to choose a best dressed tonight. I’ve already overloaded. Now Jane Fonda, Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta Jones, it’s not stopping. It’s an onslaught.

  47. eclipse22
    February 24, 2013

    yeah i don’t like lawrence or chastain dress!

  48. Reno

    Jane Fonda looks incredible! She is 75 years old !?!?!?!

  50. The J Viewer
    February 24, 2013

    (Then) I can’t believe I missed Jane Fonda. She’s of a certain age, but she’s always had that aura about and around her in my opinion. Good for her.

  51. February 24, 2013

    Nobody told me Don Johnson was gonna be there. *dies and iz ded* He’s so perfect. Still.

  52. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    Jane Fonda — fabulous….who is her cosmetic surgeon?

    Is Amanda Seyfried high? She looks a little shifty-eyed.

    Everyone looks pretty good so far. I kind of miss the fashion disasters. I hope Cher shows up!!!

  59. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    I dont know, Anne Hathaway always fails me with her choices.

  60. CMG
    February 24, 2013

    I was sort of hoping Jessica Chastain did the Gilda, black cocktail dress turn but wow on that dress. Her grandmother looks great too.

    Jacki Weaver is all-class.

    Sally Field is such as a mom to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, love it.

    And Mark Harris (Kushner’s husband) is letting off some steam by joking that George Clooney is holding an anti-Lincoln sign around the entrance.

  61. Robin Write
    February 24, 2013

    Anne Hathaway really needs to eat something. And you want to talk about Legend – ladies and gentlemen, Norah Jones!

  62. February 24, 2013

    Does anyone here know first aid? I just saw Naomi Watts.

  63. eclipse22
    February 24, 2013

    finally i dress i agree with 100% charlize theron!

  64. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    Anne Hathaway is gorgeous but not in that dress. That is not dressed for success. It doesn’t suit her – she needs bold colour or if not, something that gives her shape. That frock does not. Very disappointed.

  65. Alfredo
    February 24, 2013

    Jane Fonda looks amazing! It’s unnatural!

    Also are those Anne Hathaway’s nipples???

  66. Stephanie
    February 24, 2013

    Anne Hathaway’s dress looks like Calvin Klein circa 1997, like Gwyneth Paltrow wore this when she was dating Brad Pitt.
    Naomi Watts looks hot. Great choice, something a little different.

  67. mel
    February 24, 2013

    Jennifer wore the same to the Globes but a different color lol

  68. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    Naomi Watts is a truly beautiful woman. Fonda is spectacular, but my eyes popped out with that colour. Woah! Charlize Theron – another elegant beauty. Timeless.

    Catherine Z-J and Michael….gossips are reporting they’re not too cozy these days, working on their marriage. DonJohnson looks like a paper cup next to his wife.

  71. February 24, 2013

    Is there a good reason for the scruffy beard on Tommy Lee Jones?

  72. Yvette
    February 24, 2013

    Ok, I’ll be out having dinner tonight. You guys have to keep me posted. That’s probably for the best – I’m already in a state of anxious anticipation of a huge letdown.

  73. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    I was reading in the gossips that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark are no longer an item. Just best friends.

  74. Radich
    February 24, 2013

    Charlize Theron is stunning! She is just from another planet.

  75. February 24, 2013

    It is aaaaaaallllllllllll about Naomi Watts tonight.

    You know it.

  76. February 24, 2013

    OMG Jennifer Aniston’s dress is NAT BLACK!!!

  81. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    So ABC just took over everywhere, cut off quality German coverage which was having intelligent interviews. Now this dreadful American bullshit about dresses, amazing looking stars, stars, blah, blah is dominating the TV screen. Screw this shit.

  82. February 24, 2013

    OMG Jennifer Aniston’s dress

    reminds me of this. :/

  83. Gage Creed
    February 24, 2013

    They don’t webcast the show, do they? I’m at a hotel in London and none of the available channels here will air the ceremony…

  84. Rafael
    February 24, 2013

    Naomi Watts loos STUNNING!!!!! I just can’t…

  85. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    And as last year Keith Urban is just standing there, looking around, not saying anything. Oh, he did. About dresses.

  86. Antoinette
    February 24, 2013

    I believe the Oscars is supposed to be live streaming this year.

    I just saw Nicole Kidman’s dress. OMG. It’s so FLASH GORDON. I LOVE IT!!!!

  87. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    Gage in London — I think you can go to and it’s streaming online.

  88. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    Theron looks like Morena Baccarin.

  92. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    I hate to write this – but the RC are getting boring. Nothing surprising. I can almost predict what the women will wear….nothing provocative,no controversy.

    TL Jones is being interviewed. He looks lost….lost for words. He’s supposed to have a really bad reputation in HWD but he keeps on winning.

  93. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    Bryce, she has been sighted already.

  97. Bryce Forestieri
    February 24, 2013

    As gorgeous as many of these girls are looking tonight Jennifer Lawrence is the only one so far who sports BOTH a banging ass and nice big tits so I kinda get the love for her.

  98. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    So Christoph Waltz is interviewing Daniel Radcliffe.

  99. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    I have the opposite reaction to Sally ^
    I don’t normally get terribly enthused about fashion – i’m a scruffy bloke
    But i am taping the red carpet for my sister who hasn’t got cable, and quite hooked into it. The fashions are fun, but the money shots for me, are the quick grabs from the stars, and the chance to get a sense of them as people, not just the characters they played, or the way they are portrayed in the media. I get to judge for myself.
    Ok, i am a sucker for a gorgeous frock!

  100. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    What’s with ALL the short men actors and their TALL wives?

  101. Drew
    February 24, 2013

    Daniel Radcliff played Allen Ginsberg?!? Hollywood is so dumb

  102. Bryce Forestieri
    February 24, 2013

    “TL Jones is being interviewed. He looks lost….lost for words. He’s supposed to have a really bad reputation in HWD but he keeps on winning.”

    No he doesn’t, everyone important loves/respects him. He always has at least 2 movies a years, Harvard alumnus Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones

  103. daveinprogress
    February 24, 2013

    Really Bryce? I thought it anything, Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t quite have the chest for the frock! She has a beautiful face.

  104. Bryce Forestieri
    February 24, 2013

    “Daniel Radcliff played Allen Ginsberg?!? Hollywood is so dumb”

    Hmm yeah maybe, but you’re an idiot.

  105. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    Damn, so RC turned into a pure advertisement run for high-end designer dresses.

  106. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    Here’s Alan Arkin, another older actor who has attitude…it’s almost like these guys could take it or leave it…Tommy Lee has that same attitude. Notice the interviewers don’t talk to them too long.

  107. February 24, 2013

    There are a lot of Science Fiction-y dresses. AND I LIKE IT!!! :D

    Halle Berry’s Versace Bond girl dress is a great example.

  108. Jerry Grant
    February 24, 2013

    When does the actual show start?

  109. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    @Max — that’s what I mean….designer ads, designer after designer…it’s so boring at this point. All the red carpets are becoming the same.

  110. SallyinChicago
    February 24, 2013

    Geo Clooney and Stacy…how long has this lasted? Is anybody counting the months?

  111. Max G
    February 24, 2013

    As unsymphathetic as Clooney is, he is quite smart.

  112. Antoinette
    February 24, 2013


    Affleck looks super nervous on the red carpet stream.

  113. eamo

    Is there an online steream for the show itself?

  114. JennyL33
    February 24, 2013

    @Jerry Grant I think it starts around 8:30pm ET.

  115. February 24, 2013

    Lol Antoinette, I know, I saw that earlier!

  116. Dan

    Stefan, can you try to get German ProSieben on your TV? They are broadcasting.

  122. Voland

    Pro Sieben (german TV) is showing the whole thing. Dunno if this link works for you though, it does for me.

    He really did win. Tarantino will as well.

  125. Terry Meehan
    February 24, 2013

    Did Meryl Streep even open the envelope before she announced that Daniel Day-Lewis was the Best Actor winner? Not that she needed to.

  126. Indio22
    February 25, 2013

    One of the interviewers (Kristin Chenoweth) kept pestering people from the red carpet to guess the contents of a box. Am I the only one who found that kind of bizarre? Wonder who thought that bit up. It got old quick.

  127. MauiJim
    February 25, 2013

    This may have already come up (too many comments to read at this point), but when was the last time that the 6 major awards ( pic, dir, 4 acting) were all different films?

  128. MauiJim
    February 25, 2013

    I should have thought about it a bit before asking …. 2006: Crash, Brokeback, Capote, Walk the Line, Syriana, The Constant Gardener.
