Post The Official Berardinelli Live Oscar Commentary Thread
This thread will be unlocked some time between 8:00 and 8:30 pm EST tonight. I'll be posting regularly throughout the ceremony: random thoughts, various observations, and the all-important count of how bad my guesses were. Everyone is welcome to join in although, depending on volume, I can't guarantee I'll be able to respond to every question or comment.

Please keep things civil. I don't want to have to ban anyone.

So we're off and running. What's the over/under for the end time? Midnight ET? That would make the telecast 3.5 hours. Too long for me but, going by past years, that sounds about right.

I'm ignoring the scintillating red carpet pre-show, which illustrates everything there is to hate about the Oscars and Hollywood.

Anyway, not much to say for now. That will almost certainly change as the evening wears on...

Brad Brevet: It's starting to feel like the Oscars, Taylor Lautner and Miley Cyrus are in the house. All the best of Hollywood is here! Oh, and here's Meryl somebody… I think he said Streep. Whoever that is.

Cute.

We`ll have to see if for once the Academy keeps its promise about shortening the ceremonies.

Roger Ebert thinks there will be surprises tonight. There usually is one, but I'm not certain what it would be. Even though I'm predicting AVATAR to win Best Picture, it wouldn't shock me if THE HURT LOCKER won.

Maybe Sandra Bullock is the weak link. Could this be the first win by someone wearing a bathrrobe? (Looks more like a Jedi robe to me.)

Get a move on.

We'll all start off pretty well. They usually do supporting actress first. Most of you picked Mo'nique, yes?

Hey look guys, the musical is back....AGAIN!


And why isn't NPH the host, the real hosts should be singing crappy songs.

What was the point of all that? Probably shouldn't ask that question....

Well as if that joke wasn't predictable.

BULLSHIT!

Plummer would still be nominated if there were 5, 10 or 500 Best Pic nods!


If I wasn't scared of Alec Baldwin I punch him for his lies!
