    I'm more astounded by Mark Ruffallo being nominated for his role in that.

    I want Michelle Williams to win best actress, but I think this is totally going to Natalie Portman.

    Another thing I don't understand is James Franco. Why the fuck is he so popular?

    That's probably the one thing I haven't seen with him in it and I don't like anything that I've seen by him so far.

    Certainly his defining role, which isn't saying much in comparison to his others, but he's amazing in it. If I could pick, he would win Best Actor this evening. Carries an amazing movie on his own. Highly recommend it.

    Even though Colin Firth will take it easily. The best in Best Actor can be replaced with "most" in the academies eyes.

    Kirk Douglas is a legend. I'm glad he can still get up there after his stroke.

    Leo won best supporting actress. She also dropped the f bomb (awesome)
    Toy story 3 just won best animated picture.

    o excellent.

    And I forgot all about Trent being nominated for score.

    Social Network or Inception will win best score, me thinks. It would be neat if Reznor won.
    Surely he's there in a suit with his lovely wife.

    The screen/arches remind me of the hollywood bowl. Great use of the visuals.

    Here comes Trent and Atticus...

    BOOM.
