    Have a great night everyone, we are the real winners! :-)

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

    Thanks!

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

  4. Suraj Sharma is so handsome. He looks so perfect in a tux.

  5. If someone finds a successful link, please let us know…ABC doesn’t seem to be working in my apartment and I’m starting to get a little bit nervous!

  6. It’s midnight in Munich and I have school…good luck, my good vibes to Amour, BotSW and Life of Pi, I’ll see you in the morning when the wreckage clears

    BOLD LAST MINUTE PREDICTIONS:

    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.

    kelly osbourne always ruins these things for me.

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

  10. 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….)

  12. I see you Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams.

  13. Bryce Forestieri

    Jessica Chastain is a perfect human being. Everytime blows me away

  14. daveinprogress

    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!

  15. dave, you’re a sweetheart!

  16. The J Viewer

    Now those two kids from Buzkashi Boys (sp) just walked by. (This comment was sooo random. lol)

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

  18. SallyinChicago

    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.

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

  20. I think so far the non-nominees look better than the nominees. Come on! This is history, people!!!

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

  21. eclipse22

    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!

  22. The J Viewer

    [nose bleeding] JLAW!

    *drooling*

  23. I’m so excited!! I hope Jen wins!!

  24. Bryce Forestieri

    I wish I knew Jacki Weaver in real life

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

  26. SallyinChicago

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

  27. Greg Schlager

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

  28. 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.

  29. Robin Write

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

  30. William Chase

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

  31. christiannnw

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

  32. 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

  33. SallyinChicago

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

  34. daveinprogress

    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.

  35. christiannnw

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

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

  37. daveinprogress

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

  38. The J Viewer

    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!

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

  40. The J Viewer

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

    Roger that, Robin. My baaad lol….

  41. daveinprogress

    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.

  42. Bryce Forestieri

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

  43. 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.

  44. eclipse22

    yeah i don’t like lawrence or chastain dress!

  45. Jennifer Lawrence on Fire, damn!

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

  47. The J Viewer

    (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.

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

  49. SallyinChicago

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

  50. Jackie Weaver looks stunning!

  51. The J Viewer

    SLP fans, throw your hands up in the air!

    Chris & Jackie in da house!!! XD Whoops there it is……………….

  52. The perennial question… Any links for the live streaming of the ceremony?

  53. Christopher Plummer said it (to the German interviewer): Trintignant was the best in Amour.

  54. The J Viewer

    Thought I’d died and gone to heaven. JenniferLaw (not JLAW lol)….

    *nose bleeding*

  55. Stephanie

    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!!!

  56. SallyinChicago

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

  57. 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.

  58. Robin Write

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

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

  60. eclipse22

    finally i dress i agree with 100% charlize theron!

  61. daveinprogress

    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.

  62. Jane Fonda looks amazing! It’s unnatural!

    Also are those Anne Hathaway’s nipples???

  63. Stephanie

    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.

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

  65. daveinprogress

    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.

  66. The J Viewer

    Where is Antoinette now? She’s interviewing Sonny Crockett (Johnson) NOW!

  67. SallyinChicago

    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.

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

  69. 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.

  70. SallyinChicago

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

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

  72. It is aaaaaaallllllllllll about Naomi Watts tonight.

    You know it.

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

  74. Max DaVinci

    Emmanuelle <3

  75. The J Viewer

    Madame Riva!

    I predict you to win tonight (this morning). Good luck. (I still love Jennifer Lawrence though.)

  76. The J Viewer

    *signed out (for now)*

    SallyinChicago, Robin Write et al, thank you very much for the links. Cheers.

  77. okay, do we have a link for the ceremony now? I saw the red carpet…

  78. 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.

  79. OMG Jennifer Aniston’s dress

    reminds me of this. :/

  80. Gage Creed

    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…

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

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

  83. Antoinette

    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!!!!

  84. SallyinChicago

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

  85. Theron looks like Morena Baccarin.

  86. All my gurls are werkin tonite!

    Naomi
    Nicole

    #turningitout

  87. Antoinette

    YAY!!! BEN AFFLECK IS WALKING THE CARPET WITH HIS WIFE!!!! YAY!!!!! :D

  88. Bryce Forestieri

    I’m swapping between E! and ABC and I haven’t seen Emmanuelle Riva yet. Hope she made it yo.

  89. SallyinChicago

    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.

  90. Bryce, she has been sighted already.

  91. Also is PT Anderson around?

  92. Okay, I’ve had a few drinks…bring on Argof**kyourself winning its stupid award

  93. Bryce Forestieri

    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.

  94. So Christoph Waltz is interviewing Daniel Radcliffe.

  95. daveinprogress

    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!

  96. SallyinChicago

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

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

  98. Bryce Forestieri

    “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

  99. daveinprogress

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

  100. Bryce Forestieri

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

    Hmm yeah maybe, but you’re an idiot.

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

  102. SallyinChicago

    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.

  103. 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.

  104. Jerry Grant

    When does the actual show start?

  105. SallyinChicago

    @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.

  106. SallyinChicago

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

  107. As unsymphathetic as Clooney is, he is quite smart.

  108. Antoinette

    lolololol https://twitter.com/annesnipples

    Affleck looks super nervous on the red carpet stream.

  109. Is there an online steream for the show itself?

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

  111. Lol Antoinette, I know, I saw that earlier!

  112. Any good link for live stream?

  113. I can’t find a working livestream :(

  114. SallyinChicago

    Hugh Jackman is SUCH A HAPPY MAN, a joy.

  115. SallyinChicago

    Prediction: Argo will win…the fix is in.

  116. Hi, i live in Holland, SO I can watch abc. I neef à good stream

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

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

    http://schoener-fernsehen.com/live/stream/de/PRO7/PRO%20SIEBEN/

  119. Here we go! Good luck to my faves!

  120. He really did win. Tarantino will as well.

  121. Terry Meehan

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

  122. 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.

  123. 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?

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