How could have gone to any other song? The others were awful.

What the hell's up with starting at 8:30? I missed a half-hour cause I figured it was on at 9 when I didn't see it at 8.

No idea who will win Original Song.
Up is wonderful.

I still don't get how "Down in New Orleans" ended up one of The Princess and the Frog's two nominated songs; "Friends on the Other Side" and "Dig A Little Deeper" were both much better.

Totally deserved win for "The Weary Kind".
I can't wait to see it.

I should have seen The Princess & The Frog when it was in theaters. It looks good.
Yeah... I believe it's still playing at a discount theatre near me. I think I'll go check it out.
It just looks really good.

Man, Shatner must have hit the gym bigtime to get ready for his appearance there.

Wait...what?

Hmm, I thought it had started at 8:30 in previous years too.

I wonder if the best song award being so early means no performances this year. That would be a shame. I always enjoyed those.

Man, the Oscars are looking great on HD! This is the first year I get to see it this way.

Yes, they decided not to include those this time.

It started here at 12.30pm, with a 30 minute red carpet special.

Alec Baldwin is awesome.

Tina Fey is gorgeous.

That's too bad. Probably to accommodate the increased number of best picture nominees. Why couldn't they cut the president's speech (ie. when everyone gets up to get a sandwich.) or something?

Okay, Best Original Screenplay. This is a big test for Best Picture; if Boal wins here, no way is The Hurt Locker losing.

I'd prefer Tarantino, personally.
