    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.

    Too generic Bondish.

    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.

    I liked the Skyfall song a lot although that wasn't a good performance. I also would have preferred the Skyfall opening credit sequence to go along with it.

    The generic Bondishness is what makes it great.

    I never imagined this Silver Linings movie would be great. Anyone seen it?

    Do you think Will Smith is kicking himself for backing out of D'Jango now?

    It sounded to me like a Garden State retread, and I stayed away.

    I thought Silver Linings was good but not Best Picture material. It'll be forgotten about quickly although Bradley Cooper gave a GREAT performance.Kristen Stewart sounds like she's gritting her teeth...

    Poor Daniel Radcliffe. His franchise is actually good. It does not deserve to be lumped in with Twilight.
