2 for 3. I guessed that they'd pick Brave over Ralph; it's the "classier" movie, even though the latter is much better, in my opinion.

Does anyone know why they're showing scenes from these movies (meaning, specifically, a couple of the best picture ones)?

That Beasts of the Southern Wild clip looked like an ad for a Nexus 7 or something.

^They always do that. They show Best Picture clips throughout the night.

Ok, 2 for 4 now. I figured it was either Life of Pi or Skyfall for this one.

I haven't seen Life of Pi, but it looks visually stunning. Few movies are like that.

3/5 Life of Pi is going to sweep the technical awards, and deservedly so.

What was that? Were they trying to get him to finish up?

Anyone happen to see both Cloud Atlas and Life of Pi to compare?
