Argo finally collects a win. We'll see if they get Adapted Screenplay too, but it seems on course now.

Does a film ever get something like editing without being up for the other awards?

10/15 As I said, Editing usually goes to the Best Picture winner, and Argo seems to be the front runner.

Man, who would have thought we'd someday live in a world where Batman, Catwoman (2x) Joker (2x), lex Luthor (2x), Jor El (2x), nick fury and Pa Kent would all be played by Oscar winning actors...not to mention Oscar nominees playing Iron Man and Mystique?

Adele's drowning like bond. Sounds not that good tonight

I almost admire them for being so brazen in spotlighting only this nominee for Original Song (unless the others are coming up too). They tossed that snippet of "Suddenly" into the Les Mis medley, but otherwise...

Great song, though.

Seriously, who set up the sound for Adele? It's awful.

My wife hates the song. Too Bondish, not enough Adele.

I guess that's why they had a remote orchestra.

Well, it's not like the result of the song category isn't already a given. Skyfall is going to win.

That was not an amazing performance, though. She was getting drowned out by the orchestra.

"Do You Hear the People Sing" a rather predictable piece to play for Les Miserables. Why not "Master of the House"?
Because DYHtPS features all of the characters. MotH does not, even if it is funnier.

Yep. But they already had the best Bond song earlier.

I was worried at first that Adele had vocal issues again, but she seemed fine, it's just a boring song.
