    Well…thanks again to our reader(s?) for joining us tonight. The show itself was pretty intolerable. I hope we were able to bring some humor and fun into your Oscar experience without the threat of ever imparting any actual movie knowledge. Thanks too to Jason, Nina, Angie, Leigh Ann, The Second Levy Twin and any other commenters…

    Not sure when we’ll be ‘live’ again, but keep checking in, because we tend to keep bringing the funny.

      We’re reevaluating our live blogging strategy. Four hour shows that end around zero am and contain little to no funny are not making the cut. Thanks all. Love ya, mean it.

      Thanks for letting me play along. But, not thanks for making me watch the Oscars. Except JLo’s boobs.

    I hope the RCA Victor dog shits on the stage.

      That would be the perfect capper to the night. (crapper to the night?)

    Artist 2:1
    Hugo 5:1
    The Help 6:1

    Everyone else 15:1

      Artist: 1:1. Wait, that’s a sucky bet

    • Leigh Anne 11:05 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I picked The Artist…but I hope it’s The Help.

    Nine? C’mon Academy….you need to be able to narrow down your nominations…

      Especially this dreck

      • JasonP 11:04 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Not that I’ve seen any of them. Except “Moneyball”. Which was entertaining, but I certainly wouldn’t vote for it.

    • Mike D. 11:04 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Since there are no horses in the audience we know that one’s not getting it…

    • Mike D. 11:05 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Pretty sure my prediction of artsy-fartsyest is safe.

      • JasonP 11:07 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Lol. That is the perfect explanation for why it won.

    • Mike D. 11:06 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Boom. shaka. Laka. It’s like I’m psychic.

  • Mike D. 10:59 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply  

    So dressing like the statue was a good plan.

     
  • Heberble 10:59 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply  

    Hm. Another lifetime achievement award

     
  • Heberble 10:51 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply  

    So. Hugo wins the first half of the Oscars. Seems like The Artist is winning the second half. I guess it has been awhile since a silent film won. On an unrelated note, glad to see Deepak Chopra has got himself a gig.

     
  • Mike D. 10:50 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply  

    The star of the silent movie wins best actor. There is probably a lesson/message/platitude here…but, I’m not sure what it is.

      Vive la France

        Or…when the French people don’t speak, they win awards.

          And another funniest comment.

    • JasonP 10:52 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I can end the suspense for everyone. “The Artist” will win Best Picture.

    • The 2nd Levy Twin (Paul) 10:53 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Mel Brooks won an Oscar? Sorry…wrong Silent Movie. Although that may have been more entertaining

    • JasonP 10:55 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Best Actress could go to any of them. Smart money’s on either Rooney or Violet, but Glenn has the “old Hollywood” thing going for her.

      • Heberble 10:56 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Im guessing Violet, despite my earlier prediction.

        • JasonP 10:57 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Of course, Meryl could always win, and she has the dress…

          • JasonP 10:59 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

            I think it’s the dress. Seriously.

            • Leigh Anne 11:00 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink

              Could be the dress…good call.

          • JasonP 10:59 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

            Rooney looks pissed.

      • Leigh Anne 10:56 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Viola…

        • JasonP 10:57 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Oh. Sorry

        • Heberble 10:58 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          I meant Viola.

          • JasonP 10:58 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

            I was blindly guessing and got most of the letter right.

        • Leigh Anne 10:59 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Dang… Go, Meryl!

      • The 2nd Levy Twin (Paul) 10:57 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Old is the right word.

    • JasonP 11:02 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Is she still talking?

      • JasonP 11:02 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        She started off so well with the “whatever”, then blah, blah zzzzzzzzzz

  • Heberble 10:43 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply  

    Patton Oswalt story. Before both he was married and before I was married, I awkardly (and futilely) hit on his now-wife…I haven’t always been smooth and debonair. Surprising, I know.

     
    • JasonP 10:45 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      So what you’re saying is, you lost a woman to Patton Oswalt.

      • The 2nd Levy Twin 10:45 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        OUCH!

      • Heberble 10:46 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        I lost her to my drunken ineptitude. Patton smartly picked up the pieces

        • JasonP 10:46 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Whatever makes you feel better.

              Yes…well, I wan’t going to mention it.

      So – I kinda like Natalie Portman summarizing all the movies for me. Maybe I can get her to come do that for me every couple weeks…

      • Heberble 10:49 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Good idea. Try hitting on her while you’re drunk, after a booze cruise, after you’d just been broken up with by another woman. This is a winning move.

        • JasonP 10:51 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Sounds like most of my moves.

        • Mike D. 10:52 pm on February 26, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          It would probably go differently now that you’re the author of a blog that gets tens of hits a day.

        I’m reprimanding you for censoring yourself. You can’t win.
