Hello! All working?

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:25 pm
Testing. Not sure if I can stay tonight or not tho. Or if I'll even be able to see the Oscars at all

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:30 pm
We're getting HORRIBLE reception of ABC at home right now

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:30 pm
We're getting HORRIBLE reception of ABC at home right now

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:30 pm
We're getting HORRIBLE reception of ABC at home right now

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 5:45 pm
Hope you can stay tonight Dacey. I don't have cable anymore but I did enter the contest so I'll be here. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:47 pm
Do you still get basic channels?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 5:48 pm
No I canceled everything...I wasn't really watching much so it didn't seem worth it (plus time warner is expensive lol). I just go online now.

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:49 pm
Well, the best I can hope for is streaming them online. If that works, the family would be gathered around my laptop. Hence me possibly not staying.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 5:50 pm
I won't be able to see them either but I still want to participate. Hope you'll stick around. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 5:51 pm
We'll see what happens :)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:53 pm
Hey Dacey. :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:55 pm
Hello everyone!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:56 pm
Hi ibrmacf! :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:56 pm
Everyone excited?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:57 pm
Yeah!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:57 pm
Sadly, I don't think I can watch the Oscars tonight either. I don't have TV service. Trying to find somewhere that's streaming.

Ben • Yesterday, 6:57 pm
Yo!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:57 pm
Did you enter the contest?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:57 pm
Hi Ben!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:58 pm
Yep, I did. I've been doing so for the past few years now :D !

Ben • Yesterday, 6:58 pm
Hi Vi!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:58 pm
Cool. :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:58 pm
I had my highest score last year: 14 correct...I'm not too good, lol.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:58 pm
Hey Ben!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
I bet on Dragon lol.

Ben • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
hey!

Ben • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
90mins to go...

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
Yeah, most definitely I feel HTTYD2 will win that category.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
Can't wait!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 6:59 pm
I hope...DWA really needs it.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:00 pm
here now. for now

Ben • Yesterday, 7:00 pm
hey Dace!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:00 pm
Cool, hope u can stay Dacey.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:00 pm
Hi Dacey

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:00 pm
I'll probably be in and out myself.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:01 pm
watching some red carpet stuff right now

Ben • Yesterday, 7:01 pm
mot sure what feed we have here though

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:01 pm
Cool.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
This year's memoriam is going to be so sad since we lost so many stars last year :( !

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
I know. :(

Ben • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
midnight here...hoping I can stay awake!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
Casey Kasem and Robin Williams were the hardest ones for me :(

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
You're in the UK, Ben?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:02 pm
Hope you can stay Ben!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:03 pm
Just watched The Winter Soldier

Ben • Yesterday, 7:03 pm
yep, just outside London

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:03 pm
Wow. Winter Soldier? You're late to that party, Ben!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:03 pm
Cool! Where you from, Dacey and ShyViolet?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:03 pm
yeah, still need to see both Thors too

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:04 pm
Binghamton New York, but grew up in Brooklyn.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:04 pm
Cool, Orlando here.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:04 pm
Lucky. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:04 pm
love new york

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:04 pm
Ok, I think I found a place that's streaming the Oscars, so I'm good so far.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
got some friends up in yonkers

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
Yep, Violet, you New Yorkers can keep your snow and frigid temperatures :P

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
Cool, Ben. :)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
It's soooooo cold here. :(

Ben • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
Try and get a backup...they police the web tonight and will keep taking streams down as they find them

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
I don't think I could have survived in those temperatures.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
freezing here too...cold, wet and very windy

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:05 pm
@Ben: Ok, I will.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:06 pm
Yeah it's windy here too, and has been in the negatives! (f)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:07 pm
Snow here. But it's melting.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:07 pm
Think we have our own red carpet hosts, not the abc or e feeds that we usually get

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:08 pm
Probably a stupid question, but is the Oscars held in Los Angeles?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:08 pm
Reception is awful here.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:08 pm
Er...yeah...

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:08 pm
I think it's directly in Hollywood.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:09 pm
y'know...Hollywood... ;)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:09 pm
Oops...cali is confusing lol. ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:09 pm
Yup yup. Hollywood goes to Hollywood to kiss its own butt for an entire night.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:09 pm
Ha ha Dacey! :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:10 pm
Just saying. ;)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:10 pm
It's true.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:10 pm
yeah...I'm just keeping quiet...

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:10 pm
I prepared for the Oscars this weekend. I watched Birdemic: Shock and Terror on Friday and Gladiators of Rome on Saturday. Oscar-worthy stuff.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:11 pm
That's cool.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:11 pm
Lol, i told you it was a stupid question :P !

Ben • Yesterday, 7:11 pm
26 likes on facebook!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:11 pm
I watched Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this weekend.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:11 pm
Hey, Daniel!

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:12 pm
I'm being sarcastic when I call those movies Oscar worthy, just so we're clear. ;) And yes, popular as heck!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:12 pm
Hi Dan! :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:12 pm
(Dace secretly wishes Gladiators was nominated)

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:12 pm
Hi ibrmacf.

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:12 pm
You too, Vi. ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
It's like Gladiator...but with a farting horse!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
hey Dan! Long time no you know...

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
Hope you're doing well.

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
Ya.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon on Nick is awesome, btw. Watch it if you haven't.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
well it's animated...has to have a farting character

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:13 pm
This one farts at least three times.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:14 pm
Ugh.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:14 pm
Also, a woman places her heeled foot on the main character's crotch and pins him to the ground that way.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:14 pm
is that worse than Home's urinal jokes I wonder

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:14 pm
Oh God this is so grossing me out lol! ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:14 pm
Home's urinal joke made me laugh. Sorry.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:15 pm
Oh God this is so grossing me out lol! ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:15 pm
You know I CAN ban you, BTW... ;)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:15 pm
Yeah be careful Dace. ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:15 pm
Honesty is the best policy...sometimes.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:16 pm
always

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:16 pm
I read Penguins had scatological stuff too...ugh. :(

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:16 pm
Speaking of the urinal joke, is there any news about that Hong Kong Phooey film w/Eddie Murphy?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:16 pm
But, seriously, first time I think I've seen a "foot to crotch" pin in a kid's movie.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:16 pm
I hear Eddie showed up to record lines for that for 70 seconds...

Ben • Yesterday, 7:17 pm
:)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:17 pm
I feel a little bad for that one :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:17 pm
Just a little ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:18 pm
I mean I feel bad for anyone who was apparently that nervous on live TV....

Ben • Yesterday, 7:18 pm
i dont know why sky have bothered to start their coverage two hours early since they're just doing their crap studio host stuff with crap studio hosts

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:18 pm
Hey where's James?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:18 pm
Apparently he refused to do a Bill Cosby joke, but for the sake of this being kept at a "PG" level, that's the last time I'll bring up Bill Cosby ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:19 pm
he'll be by

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:19 pm
Cool.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:19 pm
I'll probably be gone by then.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:19 pm
ueah...prob for the best. I'm just making up some cocktails

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:20 pm
.....

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:20 pm
I want to make a joke of my own now.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:20 pm
so, some predictions...?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:21 pm
go for it dace

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:21 pm
I think Boyhood will win Best Pic. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:21 pm
Yes! One Bill Cosby joke that gets some boos and laughs before they move on. And no, I'd better not.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:21 pm
I'm the odd man out and going with Selma for Best Pic.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:22 pm
Fox News will complain when liberal Hollywood gives American Sniper zero prizes. Does that count as a prediction?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:22 pm
Oh I saw Selma! Great film. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:22 pm
sniper will get one or two technicals

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:23 pm
In terms of acting, I'm predicting Bradley Cooper, Reese Witherspoon, JK Simmons, and Patricia Arquette.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:23 pm
im with Birdman/boyhood for picture

Ben • Yesterday, 7:23 pm
actor is a toss between Keaton and Redmayne

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:23 pm
Nope. I'm betting empty handed. And no way Bradley Cooper's "I'm a Tex-ANN!" accent gets a win.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:23 pm
The baby in that movie was snubbed tho

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
Lol, the baby should win Best Prop

Ben • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
no...it's keaton or Redmayne for a win

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
Loved Feast, hope it wins.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
Keaton SHOULD win. But I haven't seen TOE yet

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
I think Feast pretty much has it in the bag.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
Actually, I've only seen Boyhood and Birdman lol. At least I know I've seen the winner. ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:24 pm
indont think feast has it at all

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
It is so cute.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
Ok, my stream might not be working anymore, and I haven't found another site yet, lol

Ben • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
bigger picture is amazing and the dam keeper is so touching

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
I can't stream anything so far. And, again, my TV reception tonight SUCKS

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
You think Dam Keeper will take it?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
Yay! You found a way to get away with saying Dam tonight!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:25 pm
you not got abc?

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
I don't have ABC no. I don't have TV.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
i think that dam movie will take the dam prize, yeah

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
Lol @Ben!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
oh ueah, oops

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
Ha ha. L)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
Going to eat dinner. Will be back shortly.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:26 pm
I mean :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:27 pm
Will that lead to a dam Bill Cosby joke somehow?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:27 pm
I think that was the problem...Cosby didn't put a dam on it

Randall • Yesterday, 7:28 pm
Ho, folks!

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:28 pm
No, but he applauds us for not making jokes about him.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:28 pm
Hi Rand!

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:28 pm
Hi, Rand

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:29 pm
Konnichiwa, Rand. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:29 pm
just switched at Calgary Rand...on my way!

James • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Hola

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
I need to eat something

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Oh, hai, James!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Mr W!

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
How long have avatars been part of the chat?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Hi James. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Oh, hai, James!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:30 pm
Since last year I think.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:31 pm
one hour to go!

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:31 pm
Yay! Can't wait to not be able to actually watch

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:32 pm
Can't go peeking through neighors windows? ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:32 pm
how come ?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:33 pm
My cable is awful. Just awful. ABC is coming in, but the picture's just unbelievably bad. It looks like a Tron character dying.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:33 pm
LOL. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:33 pm
Haha...nice. Well, not for you.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:34 pm
Nope

James • Yesterday, 7:34 pm
Unbend a paperclip, unplug the cable wire from the tv, and put the paperclip in the coax input.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:34 pm
How come cable is so bad? I thought everything was fixed now it's all digital?

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:34 pm
Can't move the cord around?

James • Yesterday, 7:34 pm
I do that at hotels that have hd tvs but don't pay for hd programming

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:35 pm
It's because it's digital that it's awful, I think.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:35 pm
can you switch to analog?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:36 pm
No, sadly.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:36 pm
:(

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:36 pm
Sorry Dacey.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:36 pm
yay...my beautiful wifey has just brought me hot chocolate. Good girl! :)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:37 pm
Aw so sweet. :)

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:37 pm
Does sound at least come through?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:37 pm
I'll live. I'm trying not to give a dam...keeper.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:37 pm
lol

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:38 pm
You're lucky to have hot chocolate

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:38 pm
Mmmm....so good. Wish I had some right now lol.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:39 pm
im lucky to have such an understanding wife!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:39 pm
Was hoping to have the HT finished and have an Oscar party. Oh well...next year (again!)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:40 pm
I bet it will come out great. :)

James • Yesterday, 7:40 pm
Not joking about the paperclip. You'll definitely get... a bigger picture

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:40 pm
Huh? What?

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:41 pm
Or electrocuted. :p

Ben • Yesterday, 7:41 pm
that was a short joke

Ben • Yesterday, 7:41 pm
you won't get electrocuted from a coax point

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:42 pm
I was thinking something else, ha.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:43 pm
So for any Harold and kumar fans, what will NPH do?

James • Yesterday, 7:43 pm
Combdersnap

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:43 pm
Back everyone!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:43 pm
Hey Randall and James!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:44 pm
Hey ibrmacf!

James • Yesterday, 7:44 pm
hola

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:44 pm
He'll sing. He might make a Smurfs joke.

Daniel • Yesterday, 7:44 pm
Fast eater.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:44 pm
He'll sing. He might make a Smurfs joke.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:45 pm
Gone girl joke for sure

Ben • Yesterday, 7:45 pm
not hard...that whole movie was a joke

Ben • Yesterday, 7:45 pm
;)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
I know it wasn't too popular here but I loved Interstellar.

James • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
gone girl? more like gone script, amirite?

James • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
or gone tosleep

James • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
Interstellar was very well made, just didn't like the story

Ben • Yesterday, 7:46 pm
terrible

Ben • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
i found interstellar a gigglefest

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
I loved Gone Girl. Dam...keeper me all you like.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
I don't know, I found it very touching. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
"the lies, the lies"

James • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
i find the word gigglefest a gigglefest

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
Interstellar I mean.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:47 pm
"the dire-log, the dire-log"

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
It's possible...possible...that Nolan might've been trying to make his own 2001 there. Possible.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
LOL. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
He might've seen it, that's all I'm saying

James • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
Do the awards start at 800 or 830?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
I get what you mean.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
way off the mark then

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
8:30

Ben • Yesterday, 7:48 pm
830 I think, they're on here at 1:30

Ben • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
half hour later, aren't they

James • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
dangit. hate the red carpet stuff

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
Ben, you need more than hot chocolate then. You need booze.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
Or caffeine.

James • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
yep 830. they just put up a timer

Ben • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
no, sugar

James • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
countdown i mean

Ben • Yesterday, 7:49 pm
no booze...not a big drinker

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:50 pm
How long is the actual ceremony?

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:50 pm
Ten years long!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:50 pm
It sure feels like that.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:51 pm
American years?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:51 pm
three hoirs

Ben • Yesterday, 7:51 pm
hours

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:51 pm
Cool, if my stream crashes again, I'm just gonna quit and watch The Boxtrolls. Haven't seen it yet.

Ben • Yesterday, 7:52 pm
nearly didn't bother this year

James • Yesterday, 7:52 pm
You know I'm going to do this overtime the subject comes up Ben, right?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:52 pm
?

James • Yesterday, 7:53 pm
http://animatedviews.com/sandbox/ben.png

James • Yesterday, 7:53 pm
(everytime - stupid spell check!)

James • Yesterday, 7:54 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:54 pm
Ahh, my 30th! Long time ago... ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 7:55 pm
everytime they go to the abc feed the sound crackles...hope this doesn't happen through the ceremomy

James • Yesterday, 7:56 pm
do you have the feed, Ben? Thought you were going to miss it

Ben • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
They keep cutting to abc every now and then

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
Sounds annoying.

James • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
ah

Ben • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
oh...yeah...no, I just got to rand's

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
Got disconnected somehow

Ben • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
watching it there/here ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
Might end up crowding up on sofa to watch on sister's laptop. Streaming ain't working on mine.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 7:57 pm
I'll be back guys.

James • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
yowza... Scarlett Johansson looking good!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
no...we decided to get the sky movies package in the end

Ben • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
was worth it...saw six movies on Friday!

James • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
cool

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
Wow.

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
ScarJo is always looking good

Ben • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
and just watched The Winter Soldier before the red carpet stuff started

Dacey • Yesterday, 7:58 pm
Except in SpongeBob!

Ben • Yesterday, 7:59 pm
scarjo looked great in Cap 2 :)

James • Yesterday, 7:59 pm
Did you like Capt 2?

Ben • Yesterday, 7:59 pm
yeah...not totally blown away but it had several solid moments

Ben • Yesterday, 8:00 pm
the action was all a bit samey to Avengers And Iron Man Three though

Ben • Yesterday, 8:01 pm
but it clear marvel have a very good plan in action with their movies

James • Yesterday, 8:01 pm
I liked the different tone... more spy thriller than super hero. I like the direction Marvel is going in with these - changing up the "genre" in each one almost

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:02 pm
Marvel is awesome

Ben • Yesterday, 8:02 pm
this one in many ways clarified the overall arc. Not sure the spy thriller aspect was as strong as I had thought it would be or expecting but it was a nice touch

Ben • Yesterday, 8:03 pm
it'll be great when cap gets killed, because you always know these guys are going to make it through. When it happens, it's going to be a game chanher

Ben • Yesterday, 8:03 pm
changer!

James • Yesterday, 8:04 pm
Anyone we know going to win the oscar contest this year? ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 8:04 pm
Tami?

James • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
She just wants to beat Randall!

James • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
My 12 year old son entered for the first time this year

Daniel • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
Forgot to even enter this year.

James • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
His picks were kinda plausible. Hope he doesn't beat me!

Ben • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
reece looks sweet

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
You should Dan! :)

James • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
How could you forget! We have banners and announcements everywhere!

James • Yesterday, 8:05 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 8:06 pm
i have a good feeling this year, though am sure Redmayne will get actor when I pocked Keaton!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:06 pm
I did but doubt I'll win...mostly picked stuff at random lol.

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:07 pm
I picked Feast for short, which I'm now thinking was a dam bad decision...

Ben • Yesterday, 8:07 pm
If I do win, I'll donate the voucher back, I think ;)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:07 pm
Aw that's nice of you Ben. :)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:07 pm
I picked Feast too.

James • Yesterday, 8:07 pm
Doubling the prize didn't have an effect on number of entries :(

Ben • Yesterday, 8:08 pm
dont think feast will win, it's bigger picture or dam keeper

James • Yesterday, 8:08 pm
Everytime i pick a studio short an indy wins... and vice versa

Ben • Yesterday, 8:09 pm
i think BAF will go to Dragon, though I picked Hero

Ben • Yesterday, 8:09 pm
so many close races this year

James • Yesterday, 8:09 pm
I picked Hero too though I liked Dragon better. I think the academy likes disney better than dreamworks

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
Dragon has it in the bag. DreamWorks didn't need to spend that one million!

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
Dragon has it in the bag. DreamWorks didn't need to spend that one million!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
I think so too James.

James • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
Lego Movie had it in the bad until they didn't!

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
I'm not surprised Vi thinks that. ;)

James • Yesterday, 8:10 pm
in the bag

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:11 pm
LOL Dacey. :)

Daniel • Yesterday, 8:11 pm
Hope they air a new promo for Once during commercials.

James • Yesterday, 8:11 pm
Any chance Lego Movie gets a sympathy vote in the song category?

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:12 pm
Selma has that one in the bag

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:12 pm
It probably will.

Ben • Yesterday, 8:12 pm
you reckon?

James • Yesterday, 8:12 pm
I picked Selma, but am rooting for Lego Movie

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:13 pm
Lego Movie I mean.

Ben • Yesterday, 8:13 pm
Lego had a lot of love and surprise that it wasn't BAF nom"d

Ben • Yesterday, 8:13 pm
Just over 15 to go

James • Yesterday, 8:13 pm
Just the animation guild votes on BAF noms right?

Ben • Yesterday, 8:14 pm
50 shades trailer for us...ugh...

James • Yesterday, 8:14 pm
If so, a lot of their recent annie picks have also deviated from the popular choices

Ben • Yesterday, 8:14 pm
everyone i think

James • Yesterday, 8:15 pm
but not to pick Lego movie even in the top five seems inconceivable.

Ben • Yesterday, 8:16 pm
Well like I said in the forum, a lot of film people saw it as too close to being a toy commercial, even though it easnt

James • Yesterday, 8:17 pm
that's true of just about every animated / superhero / vfx heavy film these days

James • Yesterday, 8:17 pm
which I hguess explains how we get these 8 best picture nominees!

James • Yesterday, 8:18 pm
quick break before the show starts...

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:19 pm
Yeah me too...BRB! :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:19 pm
Ok, back y'all

Ben • Yesterday, 8:20 pm
Might get a sandwich in a bit...dinner was five hours ago!

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:20 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:21 pm

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:22 pm

James • Yesterday, 8:22 pm

James • Yesterday, 8:23 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:23 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:23 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:26 pm

James • Yesterday, 8:26 pm

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:26 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:27 pm

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:28 pm

James • Yesterday, 8:29 pm

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:29 pm
9 out of 10 dentists agree that there will always be 1 dentist who'll disagree with the other 9.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:29 pm
Ha ha...:)

James • Yesterday, 8:29 pm
so that one other dentist thinks everyone will agree?

James • Yesterday, 8:29 pm
paradox!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:30 pm
Yep...who cuts his hair :P ?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:30 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 8:41 pm
post when the winner is announced and I'll do the same

James • Yesterday, 8:42 pm
simmons

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:42 pm
simmons

Ben • Yesterday, 8:43 pm
yep, Simmons

Ben • Yesterday, 8:43 pm
so about 45 seconds

James • Yesterday, 8:43 pm
only nine of the about 80 AV voters missed that

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:44 pm
Whom did the other 9 vote for mostly?

Ben • Yesterday, 8:44 pm

Interesting NPH box story

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 8:47 pm
Thanks James. :) Well I messed up already...great beginning lol.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:49 pm
Dakota Johnson

Ben • Yesterday, 8:50 pm
Not such a great start for Tami either (sorry, Tam! And "hi"!) :)

James • Yesterday, 8:51 pm
Begin Again was a nice little film, BTW

Ben • Yesterday, 8:51 pm
tell me this isn't a front runner though...!

James • Yesterday, 8:52 pm
doubt it

Ben • Yesterday, 8:52 pm
Pretty risible song

James • Yesterday, 8:52 pm
played better in the film

Ben • Yesterday, 8:53 pm
they usually are!

James • Yesterday, 8:53 pm
nice article on our front page about best song voting if any one hasn't read it

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:54 pm
Yeah. Voting in that category has apparently become a messed up affair. That's why there were only two nomination in 2011

James • Yesterday, 8:55 pm
whats funny is there may have actually been only one real nominee that year...

James • Yesterday, 8:55 pm
the rules then stated if there was only one nominee that crossed the 8.5 score threshold then the next highest scoring song would also be nominated so there wouldn't be just one nominee

Dacey • Yesterday, 8:55 pm
Rio to the rescue, I guess?

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:56 pm
Interesting

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:57 pm
Hey Zach

Ben • Yesterday, 8:57 pm
Just what is j-lo wearing!?

James • Yesterday, 8:57 pm
77% of AV voters chose Grand Budapest Hotel for Costume

Ben • Yesterday, 8:58 pm
Grand budapest

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:58 pm
grand budapest: costume design

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:59 pm
Darn, in my picks of what I thought should win, I picked GBH. But, I predicted that ITW would take home the award.

James • Yesterday, 8:59 pm
hate when that happens!

Zach • Yesterday, 8:59 pm
Same here.

James • Yesterday, 8:59 pm
61 people tied for first place!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 8:59 pm
I know, right?

Josh • Yesterday, 9:00 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 9:01 pm

Josh • Yesterday, 9:01 pm
Figured Guardians or Foxcatcher would get it.

James • Yesterday, 9:02 pm
Down to 51 people in first place

Zach • Yesterday, 9:02 pm
Thanks @ShyViolet

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:03 pm
No problem. :)

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:04 pm
Hey yo. XD

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:04 pm
Hey Lord! :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:04 pm
Hi Lord Akiyama

Ben • Yesterday, 9:04 pm
Looks like you got my message!

James • Yesterday, 9:05 pm
not a bad show so far

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:05 pm
Forgot the chat was running. :P

Ben • Yesterday, 9:05 pm
good show so far

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:05 pm
Some of the Twitter comments from Kevin Smith and Bill Corbett (MST3K) have been amusing. XD

Ben • Yesterday, 9:06 pm
Such as...?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:06 pm
Corbett on the bit Tatum just did: "Are we being introduced to the Teen Titans?"

James • Yesterday, 9:06 pm
Bill Corbett is hilarious. A ton of my favorited tweets are from him

James • Yesterday, 9:06 pm
Fan fact... he's the only person to have ever blocked me on Twitter!

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
Heh heh heh

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
Ha ha James. :)

James • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
Last time I ever tweeted a celebrity!

Josh • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
Blocked you? What happened?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
Heh heh heh XD

Ben • Yesterday, 9:07 pm
They're just the same as us james

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:08 pm
Did any one else get that strange Eat24 commercial just now?

James • Yesterday, 9:09 pm
Made a joke about one of his tweets using a catch phrase from his live shows. I assume he didn't get the joke and assumed I was serious

Ben • Yesterday, 9:09 pm
Bit harsh to block you though

Ben • Yesterday, 9:09 pm
ah, Nicole...

Ben • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
ooh, not actually looking that great tonight

Josh • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
Yeah. You'd think he'd have a better sense of humor. :/

James • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
66% picked Polands Ida

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
Best foreign film: Ida.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
66% were right!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:10 pm
Darn, I picked Leviathan.

James • Yesterday, 9:11 pm
44 people still in first place

James • Yesterday, 9:12 pm
Including Ben!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:12 pm
Top ranking staff member! ;)

James • Yesterday, 9:12 pm
He outtalked the playoff music!

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:12 pm
Epic!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:12 pm
he beat the play off Muzak!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:13 pm
shirl!

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:14 pm
Wil Wheaton: "BRING BACK THE IDA GUY! BRING BACK THE IDA GUY! #TeamIdaGuy"

Ben • Yesterday, 9:14 pm
maybe it's all gone meta and this Oscars is really a realtime Boyhood 2...

James • Yesterday, 9:14 pm
Should have had Lord Aki retweeting the best tweets from our Twitter account

Josh • Yesterday, 9:14 pm
I wanted to see Boyhood before Oscar season. Now? Not so much, given all the folks saying the movie is a gimmick with no plot.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
So how come Budapest got its own spot and these are lumped together? That's not really fair.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
Buda was lumped with American Sniper

Ben • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
Birdman is big on the gimmick too

James • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
Budapest had Sniper with it

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
No, Budapest was lumped with American Sniper.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
Oh, Lord beat me to that, lol

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
and James.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:15 pm
XD

Ben • Yesterday, 9:17 pm
loved her in Madagascar 3 ;)

Zach • Yesterday, 9:17 pm
Everything is awesome!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:18 pm
apparenrly this is going to be star studded

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:18 pm
I've been wondering if they're rain Legos at some point.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:19 pm
THE BATMAN SONG! XD

Ben • Yesterday, 9:19 pm
ome of the stranger Oscar moments

Ben • Yesterday, 9:19 pm
mot a patch on Blame Canada tho

James • Yesterday, 9:19 pm
need rob lowe to come out and dance with the possum

Ben • Yesterday, 9:19 pm
mmm, not that good...?

Josh • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
Eh, I thought it was... awesome.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
not as good as I'm the film

Ben • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
in

Ben • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
obv

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
Darkness!!!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
No Parents!!!

James • Yesterday, 9:20 pm
from what I understand that may not be the version nominated. I think it was the version without the rap lyrics that got nominated

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:21 pm
Could've been better, but they at least tried to go party atmosphere.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:21 pm
shoild have performed the nominated version then

James • Yesterday, 9:21 pm
but the lonely island is popular online so they probably wanted them to try to bring in some more viewers who had probably never hear ofd the other singers

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:22 pm
I'm gonna be singing the Oklahoma song all night if this music keeps up

Josh • Yesterday, 9:22 pm
I think it was about as good as a live-action Oscar performance of that song could be.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:22 pm
the start was good with the Lego set

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:22 pm
I miss Jerry Orbach and his live Be Our Guest performance

James • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
the dancing teacups and such were a little much though

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
True

Josh • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
I think Oscar performances rarely capture how good the songs are.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
totwlly

Ben • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
totally

James • Yesterday, 9:23 pm
gigglefest!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
LOL. :)

Ben • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Live action short

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Back. Breifly.

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Cool good to see you Dacey.

James • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
hola

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Tatum playing with his Lego Oscar XD

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Does anybody know how they decide which order to give out the awards?

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:24 pm
Hey Dacey

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
I...think Everything is Awesome was well done. What I could see and hear of it, that is.

James • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
71% of AV voters chose chose Phone Call;

Ben • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
some are fixed, others are more fluid

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
Which was chopped up, but I can see the while thing online.

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
Which was chopped up, but I can see the while thing online.

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
whole thing

Josh • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
I want to see that Boogaloo short, due to the title alone.

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
yeesh

James • Yesterday, 9:25 pm
The order seems pretty consistent each year with slight variations

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:26 pm
What won live action short? My audio tripped.

James • Yesterday, 9:26 pm
Phone Call

Josh • Yesterday, 9:26 pm
You'd think they'd have nominees closer to the stage.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:26 pm
Yeah, it's mostly fixed, but with various alterations

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:26 pm
Thanks @James

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:27 pm
Thanks @Brn

Ben • Yesterday, 9:27 pm
the seating is very political and leans towards big names and faces.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:27 pm
Mike Nelson: "Hmm, the applause for Butter Lamp seemed slightly disingenuous. HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN BUTTER LAMP, YOU HYPOCRITES?!"

James • Yesterday, 9:28 pm

James • Yesterday, 9:28 pm

James • Yesterday, 9:29 pm
yep

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:29 pm
Thanks! Sorry, my stream's so jumpy

James • Yesterday, 9:29 pm
Those two categories don't count in our contest except in the second tie-breaker

Ben • Yesterday, 9:29 pm
Darn...I was five for five before that...:(

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:30 pm
I could've sworn I had voted for GBH for makeup. Guess i didn't lol

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:30 pm
The music is evil tonight

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:30 pm
Is there a reason why the numbers correct aren't updating when you reload the 2015 Oscar Contest Chart?

James • Yesterday, 9:30 pm
But they are letting them go past it

James • Yesterday, 9:31 pm
mine are. but those last two categories don't count

Josh • Yesterday, 9:31 pm
At least the microphones aren't lowering to the ground, as they've done in the past.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:31 pm
Oh ok, I see. Thanks!

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:32 pm
So we're getting a look at Miyazaki getting a special Oscar XD

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:32 pm
Well, you guys are ;)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:32 pm
Miyazaki!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:33 pm
Wonder if we'll see Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury get their honorary awards later?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:34 pm
Apparently that was Will Arnett in the Lego Batman suit XD

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:35 pm
Awesome! :)

Ben • Yesterday, 9:35 pm
haha@Annie

James • Yesterday, 9:35 pm
wow - lots of marvel actors

James • Yesterday, 9:35 pm
hey randall!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:35 pm

James • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
i took selma but hope Lego gets it

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
Hi Rand. :)

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
@James: Soon, the Oscars will be filled with Marvel actors XD

Ben • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
Rand's back!

James • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
lets be honest, which of these songs will last? For good or bad, Everything is awesome will be around for a long time

Randall • Yesterday, 9:36 pm
Yeah, I'll be in and out.

James • Yesterday, 9:37 pm
are you and Ben watching this on your projector?

Randall • Yesterday, 9:37 pm
I was excited about being in first place after the initial award was given.

James • Yesterday, 9:37 pm
;)

Randall • Yesterday, 9:37 pm
I am!

James • Yesterday, 9:37 pm
You're ahead of Tami though!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:38 pm
wait, you didn't know that Tim McGraw was Miracle Man?

James • Yesterday, 9:38 pm
WHAT!

James • Yesterday, 9:39 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 9:39 pm
Okay...loo break...where's your toilet, Rand? Why am I asking you on here?

DUB • Yesterday, 9:39 pm
Is the scoreboard updated correctly? I only see it counting 4 categories.

James • Yesterday, 9:39 pm
The last two categories don't count

James • Yesterday, 9:39 pm
except for tiebreakers

James • Yesterday, 9:40 pm
here are the rules we use for tabulating the results: http://www.animatedviews.com/contest/os ... st-tb.html

DUB • Yesterday, 9:40 pm
Ohhhh ok thanks!

James • Yesterday, 9:41 pm
So far the AV consensus has chosen every category correct

Ben • Yesterday, 9:43 pm
This won't make sense to anyone who hasn't seen birdman

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:43 pm
Why's he in his underwear, lol?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:43 pm
Parody of a scene in Birdman

Zach • Yesterday, 9:43 pm
Lol

James • Yesterday, 9:44 pm
won't make sense, but still funny

Ben • Yesterday, 9:44 pm
its a Birdman gag

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:45 pm
Bill Corbett: "Well, there goes our running tighty-whities ag for the next RiffTrax Live."

James • Yesterday, 9:46 pm
42% of AV voters chose Whiplash for Sound Mixing

Ben • Yesterday, 9:46 pm
pits Captain Amazing!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:47 pm
Oooh

James • Yesterday, 9:47 pm
23 people tied for first place

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:47 pm
Darn, I did the thing again thinking Whiplash would win, but predicted Sniper.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:47 pm
*should, not would

James • Yesterday, 9:48 pm
75% of AV voters chose chose American Sniper for Snd Editing

Ben • Yesterday, 9:49 pm
The problem with sound is that no one really knows what they're voting for

James • Yesterday, 9:49 pm
Should go back to the old names

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:50 pm
I personally am not 100% sure of the difference between sound editing and sound mixing.

James • Yesterday, 9:50 pm
Sound Mixing used to just be Sound. Sound Editing used to be Sound Effects Editing

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:50 pm
Just a heads up James, I think the winners are announced on my screen about a full minute or two after you announce how many voters predicted correctly.

James • Yesterday, 9:50 pm
your tv may be ahead of me then!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:51 pm
they should really have a recording category too, as without good sound you don't get editing or mixing

Josh • Yesterday, 9:51 pm
Eager to see Leto as Joker.

James • Yesterday, 9:51 pm
87% of AV voters chose Arquette for Sup Actress

Ben • Yesterday, 9:51 pm
supplanted actress?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:51 pm
Haven't even announced the nominees yet XD

James • Yesterday, 9:52 pm
Oh I thought you meant you were ahead of me. You're saying you're behind me

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:52 pm
Yep

Ben • Yesterday, 9:52 pm
Kiera was good

James • Yesterday, 9:53 pm
So far the AV voters have everything right

Josh • Yesterday, 9:53 pm
I love they keep saying the full title for Birdman.

Ben • Yesterday, 9:54 pm
well that is the title!

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:54 pm
Kevin Smith: "The Joke is on my TV! My So-Called Super Villain. He looks like Buddy Christ tonight."

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:54 pm
Patricia Arquette wins!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:55 pm
Nice, but no clap from Keaton?

James • Yesterday, 9:55 pm
Best thing to do is don't look at the chat after I announce AV's prediction on each category if you are behind

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 9:56 pm
Kevin Murphy: "I think she said 'poop'."

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 9:56 pm
@James: Yeah, I've decided to do that myself

James • Yesterday, 9:56 pm
23 people still tied for first. Three people tied for last, two of whom are sitting next to me!

Ben • Yesterday, 9:57 pm

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:59 pm
Pat's speech was badly done. Kept reading off the page like she was giving an uncomfortable college presentation.

Dacey • Yesterday, 9:59 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 10:02 pm

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:02 pm

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:02 pm
Visual Effects apparently next

Ben • Yesterday, 10:02 pm

Josh • Yesterday, 10:03 pm
Anyone else rooting for Big Hero 6? I liked Dragon 2, but not as much as everyone else, I think.

James • Yesterday, 10:03 pm
66% of AV voters chose Interstellar for VFX

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:03 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 10:05 pm

Josh • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
Just did, lol.

Zach • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
Feast won

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
Cool.

Josh • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
I thought it was cute, but too close to Paperman.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
very cool, but me thinks they just saw "Disney" on the ballot

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:07 pm
Yep, I knew Feast had it in the proverbial bag.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:08 pm
@Ben: True, I felt Dam Keeper should have won.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:08 pm
Boston Terriers! XD

Ben • Yesterday, 10:08 pm
pleased for Disney though, and their amazing streak of short wins

Josh • Yesterday, 10:09 pm
Ditto.

James • Yesterday, 10:09 pm
84% of AV voters chose HTTYD2

Ben • Yesterday, 10:09 pm
yeah, dam keeper was the one to beat I thiught.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:09 pm
Hello zoe!

James • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
not a genre

Ben • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
ITS NOT A GENRE!!!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
Ugh. :(

Josh • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
I hope they all wrote in Lego Movie

Zach • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
Whoa

Ben • Yesterday, 10:10 pm
yeah!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
BIG HERO 6?!!

Zach • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Big Hero 6!

Josh • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Wow, Big Hero 6 won!

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Who won?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Disney night tonight!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
again...they see "Disney" on the ballot

Ben • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
very pleased to see an original win over a sequel but I think that's how it won

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Big Hero 6 won, Violet

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
Oh wow....wow...I'm glad for Disney but sad for DWA.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:11 pm
I loved BH6, but definitely feel others were better than it

James • Yesterday, 10:12 pm
This is why DW stacks the Annies!

James • Yesterday, 10:12 pm
;)

Josh • Yesterday, 10:12 pm
Is this the first time a studio has won for animated short and feature on the same night?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:12 pm
is that the first time Disney has "done the double"?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:12 pm
i think so josh

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:13 pm
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

James • Yesterday, 10:13 pm
Animated films make more than every best picture nominee. Can we not rush the winners off the stage?

James • Yesterday, 10:13 pm
Down to 16 people tied for first place

Ben • Yesterday, 10:14 pm
why a non animated song like Chitty to play off ANIMATION!?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:14 pm
Wow glad for Disney but sad for DWA :(

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:14 pm
Wow. A lot of surprises there. Can't believe Apes didn't win...again! :(

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:14 pm
They really needed this win.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:15 pm
historic night for Disney, although BAF only been going since 2001 so it's not like its been decades and decades in coming

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:15 pm
Is this the first time DAS has won in the BAF category?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:15 pm
i can believe apes didn't win. It was my pick, but some of the cb was very poor.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:16 pm
@ibrmacf: Frozen won last year

Ben • Yesterday, 10:16 pm
Disney has won BAF before, but not BAF and short together

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:16 pm
@Lord, oh yeah, forgot about that

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:16 pm
@Ben: Ok, has Pixar ever done that?

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:17 pm
Can't believe Toothless lost. I loved Big Hero 6, but still....

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:17 pm
I liked BH6 a lot.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:17 pm
Not sure...think so with Presto's win

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:17 pm
But DWA is having SUCH bad luck lately.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:17 pm
Let's see if this works, me with Don Hall: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 4405ecc737

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:18 pm
Anyway, that's enough DWA soapboxing. :)

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:18 pm
Well, I'm not "sad" lol. I'm happy for Big Hero 6. I just thought Dragon 2 was a better film.

James • Yesterday, 10:18 pm
cool!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:18 pm
unless we don't agree with them

James • Yesterday, 10:18 pm
:)

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:19 pm
"That's why all the nominations this year are white!"

Ben • Yesterday, 10:20 pm
This. Lady. Is. Making. A. Point.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:20 pm
I don't think conservative opinions would make it big in liberal Hollywood

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:20 pm
"Still, first time in more than 20 years that ALL the nominations are white in the acting categories."

Ben • Yesterday, 10:21 pm
no...that's why Clint Eastwood is not making movies anymore...

James • Yesterday, 10:21 pm
83% of AV voters chose Grand budapest for Prod Design

Ben • Yesterday, 10:21 pm
gotta be budapest

Ben • Yesterday, 10:21 pm
Amazing (real) set

Ben • Yesterday, 10:22 pm
nice

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:22 pm
Yep, Budapest is king!

James • Yesterday, 10:22 pm
Loved this movie. Wanted to choose it for Best Pic but that would've been voting with the heart not the brain

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:23 pm
Wes Anderson films are so much fun to watch. Even funnier when I'm with my mom because we're both rolling with laughter. XD

Ben • Yesterday, 10:23 pm
the only thing I don't get with budapest's academy ratio sequences is that it's not true academy ratio, it's open matte... :?

James • Yesterday, 10:24 pm
Just noticed no one is perfect anymore in the contest

James • Yesterday, 10:24 pm
79% of AV voters chose Birman for Cin.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:26 pm
Pretty well deserved

Josh • Yesterday, 10:26 pm
Poor Roger Deakins.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:26 pm
Thought GBH had this category too

Ben • Yesterday, 10:26 pm
one day, josh!

James • Yesterday, 10:27 pm
16 people tied for first place. One of them got all three animation categories right which is the first tie-breaker we use

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:27 pm
Mike Nelson: "Does it drive Wes Anderson crazy that not every sinle shot of the Oscars is exactly centered and it's not adorable?"

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:27 pm
Was there any way Birdman wasn't gonna win that?

James • Yesterday, 10:29 pm
Ive got their twitter pages open too now! My favorite so far was from one of their writers: "Please, please let John Travolta introduce Alejandro González Iñárritu tonight"

Zach • Yesterday, 10:29 pm
Haha.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:29 pm
It could have gone to deakins...Birdman is a bit gimmicky.

Josh • Yesterday, 10:29 pm
Need to get a few things done before work tomorrow. But thanks for hosting the chat again. Good night! :)

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:30 pm
Good night Josh! :(

Ben • Yesterday, 10:30 pm
See ha josh! Good to see you!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:30 pm

James • Yesterday, 10:30 pm
CYA!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:30 pm
La Meryl

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:30 pm
Meryl can probably sleepwalk across an Oscar stage by now

Ben • Yesterday, 10:31 pm
ahh, in memorium

Ben • Yesterday, 10:31 pm
Let's see who they miss...RW for the final screen, anyone?

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:31 pm
In Memoriam Time...

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:31 pm
Yeah, RW will be the most!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:32 pm
Nicely done this year

Ben • Yesterday, 10:33 pm
h r giger!?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:35 pm
That...was REALLY nice, hope that don't end with Joan rivers

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:35 pm
No Sidney Temple?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:36 pm
aw no...why do this!?

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:36 pm
*Shirley Temple

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:36 pm
No Casey Kasem?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:36 pm
aw, man...such a nice tribute and they have to shit on it with something like this

James • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
Jennifer Hudson is pretty good, and an oscar winning actress

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
What happened? Sorry.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
No Sid Caesar?

Ben • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
bad, bad choice

Ben • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
lyrics are all wrong

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:37 pm
Shirley and Sid was the previous year.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:38 pm
Oh ok, I forgot they died earlier on.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:38 pm
overblown and this is all about her, not those they are supposedly "honoring"

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 10:38 pm
Oh I get it now.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:38 pm
I just miss Casey Kasem. He was the 2nd hardest death for me this year.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:38 pm
But, I guess he wasn't really "movie"-famous

Ben • Yesterday, 10:39 pm
Go away!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:39 pm
Just let it go Jen.

James • Yesterday, 10:39 pm
Let go, Ben

James • Yesterday, 10:39 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 10:39 pm
Lego? Did she Say?

Zach • Yesterday, 10:40 pm
Haha

Ben • Yesterday, 10:41 pm
Used to like it when they played tiny one lines for many of the peopld

Ben • Yesterday, 10:41 pm

We're here to celebrate "storytellers" and the occasional director who flees our nation to avoid jail for hideous crimes

Ben • Yesterday, 10:42 pm

James • Yesterday, 10:42 pm

81% of AV voters chose Boyhood for Film Editing

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:44 pm
Wow. That's a shock.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:44 pm
Figured that was Boyhood's to lose.

James • Yesterday, 10:44 pm
woohoo I got that one. Almost went with Boyhood.

Ben • Yesterday, 10:44 pm
As with many this year, categories fell to two front runners. It was always gonna be whiplash or boyhood

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 10:45 pm
I thought it was Birdman or Boyhood.

James • Yesterday, 10:45 pm
We went from 16 in first place to one: Unbreakable Samurai leads!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:45 pm
Yeah, I thought Boyhood has this too!

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:46 pm
How did Boyhood not win? I mean you literally have twelve years of footage to edit through.

James • Yesterday, 10:46 pm
More marvel

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:47 pm
@Dacey: My thoughts exactly!

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:47 pm
Is something wrong with Don Cheadle?

James • Yesterday, 10:48 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 10:48 pm
Well, no, you don't. They didn't film for twelve years.

James • Yesterday, 10:48 pm
Only 10 people 81 got animated feature right on our animation website!

James • Yesterday, 10:48 pm
10 out of 81

Ben • Yesterday, 10:48 pm
They filemed for a week each year. That's twelve weeks of footage, the same as any other three month shoot,

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:49 pm
10/81? Wow!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:49 pm
Wasn't that Terence Howard?

James • Yesterday, 10:49 pm
(Iron man joke)

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:49 pm
Guess my joke didn't land ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:50 pm
Thanks, James!

Ben • Yesterday, 10:50 pm
i wasn't sure if that was the joke...sorry

James • Yesterday, 10:50 pm
74% Picked CitizenFour for Doc

Ben • Yesterday, 10:50 pm
but they didn't have twelve years of footage to cut, only twelve weeks, like any other movie

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:50 pm
Anyone see the excellent new Peanuts Movie poster they just put out?

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:51 pm
Spoofs Birdman

Ben • Yesterday, 10:51 pm
got this, only as it was the only one that got a lot of publicity and was showing on TV here last week

James • Yesterday, 10:51 pm
I got it with a random guess!

James • Yesterday, 10:52 pm
Several animation poster spoofs out there

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:52 pm
Which one won?

James • Yesterday, 10:52 pm
CitizenFour

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 10:53 pm
"for some treason", lol

Ben • Yesterday, 10:53 pm
feel bad for Tami! :cry:

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:53 pm
My mom got very mad at that joke.

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:53 pm
My mom got very mad at that joke.

James • Yesterday, 10:54 pm
We're trying not to make fun of Tami here... ;)

Ben • Yesterday, 10:54 pm
Delivered VERY well tho!

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:54 pm
Tell that to my mom :P "Boo to you!" she yells with genuine disgust that means I can't even dare get an opposite view in

James • Yesterday, 10:55 pm
Only three people correctly predicted all three animation categories in the contest

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:55 pm
This may not work in all areas, but regarding Boyhood's editing...

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:55 pm
http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/pare ... e-boyhood/

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:56 pm
I'll get off my soapbox on that one now ;)

Dacey • Yesterday, 10:56 pm
Especially since I haven't seen Whiplash, to be fair

James • Yesterday, 10:56 pm

Dacey • Yesterday, 11:09 pm
Glory was a lock, but I loved the Idina/John thing a LOT, so my evening is made :)

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:09 pm
@Ben: Yeah, I picked LEGO also for a pity vote

James • Yesterday, 11:09 pm
Glory was a lock but Awesome will right or wrong outlast it in pop culture

James • Yesterday, 11:10 pm
Unbreakable Samurai leads with 14 out of 15 correct

Dacey • Yesterday, 11:11 pm
We don't know for sure that's true. Um...what beat Everything Is Awesome again?

Dacey • Yesterday, 11:11 pm
;)

James • Yesterday, 11:11 pm
Still almost anyone's game with 7 categories left and 49 people within 3

James • Yesterday, 11:11 pm
:)

James • Yesterday, 11:13 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:15 pm
decent robin Williams tribute, anyone?

James • Yesterday, 11:15 pm

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:15 pm
Why?

Ben • Yesterday, 11:15 pm
So a clip tribute and a song!?

James • Yesterday, 11:16 pm

James • Yesterday, 11:16 pm
Did we lose everyone in the chat all of a sudden?

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 11:16 pm
No I'm still here. ;)

James • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
OK coming back now. All the names disappeared on me

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
I think we're all in shock over this bit. What exactly, I'm not sure.

Ben • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
no, but the Oscars gained a younger demographic share!

Zach • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
Haha

Ben • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
Awful

Ben • Yesterday, 11:17 pm
its a joke, no?

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:18 pm
Shock that they chose Lady Gaga or that Lady Gaga isn't that bad.

Ben • Yesterday, 11:18 pm
shes not got a showtune voice

James • Yesterday, 11:18 pm
Michael J Nelson @michaeljnelson:
This tribute to the Sound of Music is making me nostalgic for the first time I thought The Sound of Music sucked.

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:18 pm
Though the tat on her arm is so not right.

Ben • Yesterday, 11:18 pm
listen to the cover up reverb!

Ben • Yesterday, 11:19 pm
Give her props for being barmy though

Ben • Yesterday, 11:20 pm
crazy

James • Yesterday, 11:20 pm
Not great, but not as bad as anyone would've expected upon hearing she was going to do this

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:24 pm
GBH!

Ben • Yesterday, 11:24 pm

James • Yesterday, 11:24 pm
I would have also accepted Interstellar

James • Yesterday, 11:24 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 11:24 pm
Nah

Ben • Yesterday, 11:24 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:25 pm

James • Yesterday, 11:26 pm
Valaquenta and Unbreakable Samurai now tied for the lead

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:27 pm
Inside Out commercial, yay

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 11:27 pm

James • Yesterday, 11:28 pm

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:28 pm
The commercial was about 15-30 seconds long and already it was leagues better than the trailer for Home.

James • Yesterday, 11:28 pm
true dat

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 11:29 pm
I bet. Home looks awful.

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:29 pm
Sorry got disconnected again

ShyViolet • Yesterday, 11:29 pm

I don't think any pundits picked Birdman as a serious screenplay winner

James • Yesterday, 11:32 pm
Five people tied for our lead now

James • Yesterday, 11:32 pm
including 2006 winner dgaspar

Ben • Yesterday, 11:33 pm
Birdman pretty much a lock for picture now

Ben • Yesterday, 11:34 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:35 pm

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:35 pm
Darn, picked Sniper

Ben • Yesterday, 11:36 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:36 pm
lightweight

Ben • Yesterday, 11:37 pm
Heading into the final stretches

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:37 pm
My goal is just to beat my score from last year, but I doubt I will, lol

James • Yesterday, 11:40 pm
Five tied for the lead. My wife and daughter tied for last.

James • Yesterday, 11:40 pm
:oops:

Ben • Yesterday, 11:40 pm
Well I wasn't going to mention that...

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:40 pm
Sorry for them, but at least it's a good family event :D !

Ben • Yesterday, 11:41 pm
Director...

Ben • Yesterday, 11:41 pm
this is Birdman or boyhood's to take

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:41 pm
Once Upon a Time commercial... those costumes don't work for me...

James • Yesterday, 11:42 pm
AV voters picked Alejandro G. Inarritu, Birdman for Director with 50%

Ben • Yesterday, 11:42 pm
i thought birdman would take picture and give director to boyhood as consolation but I'm about to be wrong

Ben • Yesterday, 11:42 pm
dammit

Ben • Yesterday, 11:43 pm
birdman all the way now then...Keaton and picture

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:43 pm
@Ben, I thought Boyhood would win this too

Ben • Yesterday, 11:43 pm
did he just... :shock:

James • Yesterday, 11:45 pm
Three categories left!

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:46 pm
3 to go!

Ben • Yesterday, 11:46 pm
Almost there

Ben • Yesterday, 11:46 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:46 pm

Ben • Yesterday, 11:48 pm

James • Yesterday, 11:48 pm
61% of AV voters chose Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything for Best Actor

Ben • Yesterday, 11:48 pm
;)

Ben • Yesterday, 11:49 pm
its Redmayne or keatom...I think Redmayne but think Keaton might get because he's american, been around and feels like the right time

Ben • Yesterday, 11:50 pm
not the best Keaton clip to pick

Ben • Yesterday, 11:50 pm
very tight race

Ben • Yesterday, 11:51 pm
of course

Ben • Yesterday, 11:51 pm
shame

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:51 pm
REDMAYNE

Ben • Yesterday, 11:51 pm
good for him, very good for him, but a shame for Keaton not to be recognised T this time

James • Yesterday, 11:51 pm
wow

Ben • Yesterday, 11:52 pm
genuinely good performance, then, to beat out keaton

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:52 pm
Ok, I can't beat last year's score. Here's hope to tying it, lol.

James • Yesterday, 11:52 pm
85% of AV voters chose Julianne Moore, Still Alice for Best Actress

Ben • Yesterday, 11:53 pm
but still think Birdman has picture over theory and boyhood

James • Yesterday, 11:53 pm
Not sure Keaton will get another shot

James • Yesterday, 11:53 pm
treats why I assumed he'd get it tonight

James • Yesterday, 11:53 pm
thats

Ben • Yesterday, 11:53 pm
moore is pretty much a lock in for this

Lord Akiyama • Yesterday, 11:54 pm
Eye of the Tiger for Matt, eh? XD

James • Yesterday, 11:54 pm
Blanchett got When She Love Me from TS2

Ben • Yesterday, 11:57 pm
It's been a pretty good, even spread Oscars this yeat

Ben • Yesterday, 11:57 pm
Year...mostly good choices and the right decisions

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:57 pm
Well there goes my chance of tying last year's score

James • Yesterday, 11:58 pm
Sorry ibrmacf!

James • Yesterday, 11:59 pm
Not much NPH during the last half of this thing though

ibrmacf • Yesterday, 11:59 pm
@James: Thanks. I gotta try better next year!

Ben • Yesterday, 11:59 pm
Yay! Tami is t las

Ben • Yesterday, 11:59 pm
should be "Tami isn't last!"

ShyViolet • Today, 12:00 am
Well it was really nice speaking with you guys. Have a good night. :)

Ben • Today, 12:00 am
Nay...the other Whitsons are not so lucky...

James • Today, 12:00 am
;)

Ben • Today, 12:00 am
are they really doing this? Nah...?

Ben • Today, 12:02 am
okay, it's a joke

Ben • Today, 12:03 am
was worried that was going to be a bit of showboating for a moment but he got some good nods in there

James • Today, 12:03 am
49% of AV voters chose Birdman for Best Picture

Ben • Today, 12:03 am
hey! It's Happy Sean!

Lord Akiyama • Today, 12:03 am
Dreamworks: "Actually NPH, we kept the name because it sounded better than How to Train More Dragons ;)"

ibrmacf • Today, 12:05 am
Ah, Birdman...

Ben • Today, 12:06 am
not sure it's a deserved winner, but,,,

James • Today, 12:07 am
Gotta say I wish the expansion past five nominees resulted in more popular films being nominated. I saw over 60 films in theatres last year... and two were nominated for Best Picture. Might as well go back to five

ibrmacf • Today, 12:07 am
@Lord: LOL!

James • Today, 12:08 am
dgaspar and Unbreakable Samurai are our winners! dgaspar will win the prize after the tiebreakers. He previously won in 2006.

Ben • Today, 12:08 am
What might you have given the best pic to, then, James?

Lord Akiyama • Today, 12:08 am
Wil Wheaton: "SAY I'M BATMAN, MICHAEL! SAY I'M BATMAN, GODDAMMIT!"

James • Today, 12:09 am
Not saying it didn't deserve it but don't see the point of so many nominees if its more of the same

ibrmacf • Today, 12:09 am
Ok it was great fun chatting with y'all through this: the first time I watched the Oscars! Heading to bed now! Bye!

Lord Akiyama • Today, 12:10 am
Night!

James • Today, 12:10 am
Randall beat Tami by one!

Zach • Today, 12:10 am
I'll be getting off as well. It's been fun. G' night!

Ben • Today, 12:10 am
well, 5am here...gonna make a move

James • Today, 12:10 am
Thanks guys! Wish we had more here but it was lots of fun with you all!

Ben • Today, 12:10 am
ha! One point!

Ben • Today, 12:11 am
No real great classic moments tonight I dint think?

James • Today, 12:12 am
some good jokes and the opening number was really good

Dacey • Today, 12:12 am
Sorry I wasn't here for long. But I had fun when I did. Also, I'm glad Birdman won, but can't believe Keaton didn't.

Ben • Today, 12:12 am
yes, and I liked Julie Andrews, but no real great great classic moments

Ben • Today, 12:13 am
keaton was a cert, I felt

Lord Akiyama • Today, 12:13 am
Agreed

James • Today, 12:13 am
Michael J Nelson @michaeljnelson :
I assume the stars are given dispensation to skip church on Oscar day? They're so holy and pious it would be redundant.

Ben • Today, 12:13 am
Being American, and his time, I thought he was a lock even though Redmayne was picking everything else up

Ben • Today, 12:14 am
so it can only attest that Redmayne is then very very good in his film

James • Today, 12:14 am
Thought Keaton was a lock since he was playing an actor and the actors are the largest guild

Ben • Today, 12:14 am
he did look a bit uncomfortable at the end there

James • Today, 12:14 am
Hey Randall you beat Tami!

Ben • Today, 12:15 am
yes, James...but then as actors they'd be seeing that Redmayne was getting lost in the character while Keaton's role was more "fun".

Ben • Today, 12:16 am
plus he wasn't always great all the way through

James • Today, 12:16 am
I thought most would think of Redmayne as doing an "impression". Not that I thought so

Ben • Today, 12:16 am
i need to see theory now, after putting it off after not being too impressed with imitation game

James • Today, 12:17 am
Hey guys, I need to go. Have to double check the contest, post the results, contact the winner, take down the banner ads, etc...

James • Today, 12:17 am
Had fun as usual!

James • Today, 12:17 am
Glad you could make it Ben, even if you didn't do so from Canada

James • Today, 12:18 am
Thanks for the Twitter updates Lord Aki

Ben • Today, 12:18 am
what are you talking about? I gotta get home again now!

Lord Akiyama • Today, 12:18 am
No prob XD

Ben • Today, 12:18 am
Rand...call me a cab!

James • Today, 12:18 am
Might as well just pop down here to the states for a day or two then!

Ben • Today, 12:19 am
Thats a long cab journey!

James • Today, 12:19 am
Thanks again all. See you on the forums

Ben • Today, 12:20 am
