The 82nd Annual Academy Awards - discussion thread
 
Surprised there isn't already a thread for this yet (and if I've just missed it somehow, forgive me), so I thought I'd start one.

I had fun with the ongoing discussion of last year's Oscars in the TV & Media forum, and I look forward to more this year! So feel free to use this thread to celebrate the victories of your favourite 2009 movies or complain about how undeserving the winners are. :p But whatever might happen, hopefully you'll enjoy the show!

Best Actor, Supporting: Christoph Waltz, Inglorious Basterds
Best Actress, Supporting: Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air (Haven't seen Precious yet)

Jennifer Lopez looks like she's going to trip in that dress.

You know, I actually would watch Neil Patrick Harris as the host of the Oscars.

No one can do better with a musical opening done by a gay actor (NP Harris). :lol:

^ Same here. I like how the best actor and actress nominations first to appear. Very nice.

I'm quite sure I just saw Zachary Quinto in the crowd.

Indeed. I'll be very surprised if it's someone other than Waltz.

ETA: And he's got it. Well, I've got no complaints: he managed to be memorably creepy and amusing at the same time, which isn't easy to pull off. Kudos to Christoph Waltz.

Yup! It's Waltz. Very well deserved. His performance was astounding.

Haha! He said Bingo! :D
