night. If you want to see what my predictions were... Go HERE!!!
Otherwise... Here we go...
As the night goes... I'll be putting these in order of presentation etc...
The Barbara Walters Special....
The Barbara Walters Special....
Ya know what folks? So far... this Barbara Walters Special is really really really lame. Though I must admit that that platinium blonde hair of Elizabeth Taylor's is just.... kinda cool. I'm sort of imagining that this is what an older Jean Harlow would look like as an older woman... but with bigger eyes. It really is amazing she looks as good as she does... I'll never forget how gorgeous she looked in IVANHOE... God... It's so strange to hear Elizabeth talking about Brain Tumors and Child Abuse. 10 to 1, Barbara doesn't ask about that "OZ" film that Taylor is planning to come out of retirement for!
Boy... was that JURASSIC PARK theme park commercial cool or what?
The ACADEMY AWARDS are beginning... right after these damn commercials... God I hate useless commercials for cars... SPIKE LEE commercials are kinda trippy... but seeing him huckster PIZZA HUT is just weird....
HERE WE GO......
The host on the carpet is Geena Davis.... Boy... she looks gooooood, poor Renny... God, these intro things are just... ugh... Ahhh... Gwyneth Paltrow is looking fine in that pink thing.. Roberto... is he like usually insane? I really wish I would have loved LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL... but I just got the feeling throughout that film that it was Benigni trying to do Chaplin like he'd been trying to do Peter Sellers, and I didn't see anything that wasn't really in THE GREAT DICTATOR or THE KID... The romance didn't get me and the music didn't soar... KURT RUSSELL coooooool.
About 22 minutes till it starts... Wow... Helen Hunt is just stunning tonight. She's directing the last episode of MAD ABOUT YOU (co written by Helen, Paul Reiser and Vince Levin) Ooooh... I like this Oscar costume/gown design... Is anyone else noticing that the gown design of about 40 years ago are 100 times cooler... Lynn Redgrave!!!! God, I hope she wins... She so deserves it, and man... I'm gonna explode if Ian doesn't win Actor... Emily Watson is kinda weird looking tonight.. she's got this strange 50's hairdo... Tom Hanks is unshaved and scraggily looking. Coburn just oozes cool...what a voice... I've just been told on this damn OSCAR thing is Live... everywhere.. so this is probably useless... and nobody is reading this stuff...
Liv Tyler was cheated out of her award nomination for ARMAGEDDON... Curses... Damn evil voters... they never vote from the heart. But she is sitting just 2 seats from God. DAMN!!! Australia has 7 Academy Noms... Congrats guys! Kathy Bates is so good. I'd love to see her play Medea in a big budget film version! 10 minutes left... OHMYGOD this is gonna be a Disco night... did you see all those lights. OH NO... rehearsals for bad dance numbers!!! AGH!!!
Well at this point I got Loki and Lloyd reading... Man... does KODAK got the ad that kicks ass.... Absolutely... I think they should run that Academy ad... like during the year... KICK ASS the BRUCE WILLIS vs THE JEFFERSONS ad is super fucking cool!!!! 4 minutes left...

Martin Scorsese and Robert Deniro presents the honorary Oscar to ELIA KAZAN... God I hope there is no protest.... Kazan's work is AMAZING, and pushed film into a new era of acting and drama.... An amazing talent. The awards should be about your work, not your politics. When you see this selection of films... If you watch them.... You should be in AWE... I am. Amazing work.... This is the tense moment of the OSCARS... What's about to happen? When ELIA takes that stage... will there be applause? Will there be BOOS? What's gonna happen? I haven't a clue....
Well... They are Applauding, and there is a good amount of standing ovations, but there are alot of people sitting.... including Spielberg, Nick Nolte, Jim Carrey, and many many others. I'd say maybe 20% stood, and 80% sat. He hugged Scorsese and Deniro... A moment of celebration and bitterness. Scorsese had tears in his eyes, and well... I have loved Kazan's films my entire life... I own ON THE WATERFRONT on 16mm and I want to watch it right now... That period in history is very complicated, and what he did was wrong... but.... DOn't hold it against his talent. That's what this is about.
