Looks like this is another year when I'll be missing out on the fun. No internet at home right now!

Something, something, something, Snakes on a Plane joke. ;)

Otis8 (6:54pm) — here for the whole night?

Daniel (6:54pm) — Nah, just a for a little. As per usual. ;)

Otis8 (6:55pm) — same. besides it gets hard to keep track and watch. I don't like distraction :P

Daniel (6:57pm) — I feel ya. Easier if you have a laptop or a crafty way to watch the telly. Of course some of these guys watch live streams.

Otis8 (6:58pm) — that's an idea!

Otis8 (6:59pm) — Come one people come into the chat!

Daniel (6:59pm) — Well, I'm "technically" one. ;)

Otis8 (7:00pm) — I see what you did thar. haha.

Otis8 (7:01pm) — eric is online.

Daniel (7:02pm) — Oh goodie... I say with no hint of sarcasm. :p

Daniel (7:02pm) — :P

Otis8 (7:02pm) — hes not that bad.

Daniel (7:04pm) — I actually don't mind him much. I was just joshing. He certainly keeps the boards alive!

Otis8 (7:04pm) — I like reading the boards more.

Otis8 (7:05pm) — its been kinda boring around.

Daniel (7:06pm) — Did you enter the contest?

Otis8 (7:06pm) — no. totally forgot. :oops:

Daniel (7:08pm) — You're not the only one! Actually, I did remember - when it was to late to enter! C'est la vie. :lol:

Otis8 (7:09pm) — yeah

Daniel (7:10pm) — BRB

Otis8 (7:12pm) — all be myself...

Daniel (7:15pm) — I'm back but only for a little bit.

Otis8 (7:16pm) — yay!

Otis8 (7:17pm) — I miss live action dipper.

Daniel (7:17pm) — Ok? Don't follow.

Otis8 (7:18pm) — Your old avie.

Daniel (7:19pm) — Avatar? I never had that.

Otis8 (7:19pm) — yeah or am thinking of someone else?

Daniel (7:20pm) — I use to have Bill from Gravity but never Dipper.

Otis8 (7:20pm) — hmm

Daniel (7:21pm) — OMG. It just clicked. You're thinking of "Dan". Wrong Dan-o.

Otis8 (7:22pm) — Oh wow didn't know there were two of ya. u sound so much like him!

Otis8 (7:23pm) — all these months and im thinking he was you. :oops:

Daniel (7:24pm) — Wow.

Otis8 (7:25pm) — well you have similar taste and he's on staff. thought you just removed iel from your name.

Daniel (7:27pm) — I haven't been on the staff in forever. In a way I was just removed and essentially replaced. Kinda like Poke! Lol.

Otis8 (7:27pm) — Really? what happened? Also hope your not mad at me.

Daniel (7:30pm) — Nah, I was just surprised. I can see where you could get confused. I hope no one else thinks that! Not that it's bad but two separate people.

Daniel (7:31pm) — Maybe I should change name. "OriginalDaniel"??

Otis8 (7:32pm) — Ha! Like veronica.

Ben (7:32pm) — Hi guus

Otis8 (7:32pm) — Hi ben!

Daniel (7:33pm) — Uhh. You invisible?

Ben (7:33pm) — if we're being honest, I seem to remember that Daniel (not Dan!) wasn't really pulling his weight!

Ben (7:33pm) — We did ask him to contribute a little more but he kind of fell out of contact.

Daniel (7:34pm) — Yeah, I was going to say that earlier.

ibrmacf (7:34pm) — Hello everyone! Glad to be back for the yearly Oscars chat!

Ben (7:34pm) — After a few times trying to get hold of him, we needed to update the software and so "cut loose" several old staff members that weren't still active with us.

Otis8 (7:35pm) — hey

ibrmacf (7:35pm) — Anybody got any good links to watch the Oscars online for free?

Ben (7:36pm) — So he wasn't "fired", let go or replaced...just removed from the staff lineup after we didn't hear back after a long while, as were some others. Nothing personal! :)

Otis8 (7:36pm) — I was gonna ask the same.

Daniel (7:36pm) — Can't I be dramatic, Ben? ;)

Daniel (7:37pm) — I was gonna clear it up with Otis.

Dan (7:37pm) — O'lo

Ben (7:37pm) — and here's the other Dan!

ibrmacf (7:37pm) — Hey Dan

Otis8 (7:37pm) — Hey your twinnie Daniel! lol

Dan (7:38pm) — Howdy howdy howdy

Daniel (7:38pm) — Yeah.

Otis8 (7:39pm) — not fair staff can be invisible.

ibrmacf (7:39pm) — How's everybody doing?

Daniel (7:39pm) — Dan's name is right on top of me silly!

Dan (7:40pm) — I want all to see that I have arrived to make their lives better. XD

Otis8 (7:40pm) — Oh. Still with Ben. He could spy and no one would know :P

Ben (7:40pm) — Hey Droo!

droosan (7:41pm) — hallo

Ben (7:41pm) — ive been here since before the beginning... ;)

Dan (7:42pm) — :mrgreen:

Dan (7:42pm) — https://www.instagram.com/p/BQ_fsCAAZZs/

Ben (7:43pm) — That's cool.

droosan (7:44pm) — Tom's awesome. ^_^ I'm hoping for Kubo, but thinkin' it'll be Zootopia.

Dan (7:44pm) — Always fun to watch Tom and Tony's social media to see what neat sketch they post next. :D

ibrmacf (7:44pm) — I also think it'll be Zootopia although Moana was my fave of the 3.

Ben (7:45pm) — Loved Moana, but it was too typically Disney

Ben (7:45pm) — its probably the film with most replay value for me

ibrmacf (7:45pm) — @Ben: I agree.

Ben (7:45pm) — but Zootopia did what it did and deserves recognition

Ben (7:46pm) — whole kubo was obviously the more art house of the three and possibly the greatest animation achievement, hence the also VFX nod

ibrmacf (7:46pm) — Has anyone seen Your Name? I hear people were upset that didn't get nominated.

Ben (7:47pm) — its a rare year where all three are basically equally viable winners

Ben (7:47pm) — i didnt see Your Name yet

ibrmacf (7:47pm) — Reminds me of 2014's animation nominees

Ben (7:48pm) — brb

Dan (7:48pm) — brb called to place my order for chicken wings and apparently its already good to pick up. :lol:

ibrmacf (7:49pm) — It's days like today that I wish I still had TV service, lol. So hard to find somewhere streaming the Oscars online.

ibrmacf (7:49pm) — @Dan: Wings? Nice!

Otis8 (7:51pm) — huh the chat saves? Kinda glad I didn't say something bad...

ibrmacf (7:52pm) — @Otis: Lol, yep it saves

ibrmacf (7:52pm) — So how long has everyone been using AnimatedViews?

Daniel (7:53pm) — And it's usually posted on the boards for reference. So yeah...

Daniel (7:54pm) — Probably a decade, easy.

Daniel (7:54pm) — Where does the time go...

Otis8 (7:55pm) — u ok?

Daniel (7:55pm) — Yes. All good. :)

Otis8 (7:56pm) — 30 more min till is starts?

James (7:56pm) — About 14 years

ibrmacf (7:56pm) — @Daniel: Nice! Yeah, I don't remember exactly when, but I know I've been using AnimatedViews daily since at least 2006. It's the first website I check when I do my daily morning Internet browsing ritual.

James (7:57pm) — :D

Otis8 (7:58pm) — Hey James! Another hidden person.

James (8:00pm) — I guess the chat uses the forum preferences. Didn't know it hid people here.

Otis8 (8:01pm) — Makes sense.

ibrmacf (8:02pm) — Cool, found a site that streams the Oscars: http://www.livenewschat.eu/the-oscars-live-stream/ Not sure of the safety of it though

James (8:02pm) — How about now?

ibrmacf (8:03pm) — We see you now, James

Otis8 (8:03pm) — You didn't have to change.

James (8:04pm) — I just wanted to see how it worked

James (8:04pm) — Wish there was an option to make the chat window larger

Daniel (8:06pm) — Like the old one. With the Jetson theme when someone enters. Memories.

James (8:07pm) — Didn't work on phones or iPads.

Dan (8:07pm) — and i'm back 8)

Daniel (8:07pm) — Meh. ;)

Daniel (8:07pm) — That meh wasn't towards you, Dan.

Dan (8:08pm) — :wink:

Otis8 (8:08pm) — Funny timing tho!

Otis8 (8:08pm) — Admit it Daniel!

James (8:08pm) — think i'm going to make some popcorn before we start

EricJ (8:09pm) — I'm watching on IMDb's stream, where we have some happy talkshow pundits, and NOT the gay idiot asking "Who are you wearing?"

Dan (8:09pm) — I'm set with chicken wings and fried rice, my annual Oscars food 8)

EricJ (8:10pm) — (And I'm doubling on trying to finish an overdue blog post about "Who killed the Oscars?")

Otis8 (8:10pm) — That fat gay guy or just speaking general? Btw hey eric!

Otis8 (8:11pm) — Daniel will be happy to see you joined. ;)

Otis8 (8:13pm) — I think I really did tick him off :(

Daniel (8:14pm) — You didn't, really. Anyway, I have to get going. See you guys!

James (8:14pm) — g'day

Otis8 (8:14pm) — kk. Enjoy the show!

Dan (8:15pm) — later!

Daniel (8:15pm) — Will do. Lets see if I end posting this year. ha.

ibrmacf (8:15pm) — Bye Daniel

Otis8 (8:17pm) — Hope a regular wins the big prize.

Otis8 (8:17pm) — for the contest

James (8:17pm) — Did Ben leave? Thought I saw him earlier

James (8:18pm) — Be nice to see a regular win

Otis8 (8:18pm) — He said he would be back

Otis8 (8:18pm) — hey rand!

Dan (8:18pm) — he stepped out for a moment

ibrmacf (8:18pm) — Hey Randall

Dan (8:18pm) — Yo, Rand

Randall (8:18pm) — Hey!

Randall (8:19pm) — Didn't realize you all got started already.?

Otis8 (8:19pm) — How cool, if you tap the little person before a name it automatically type it. neat!

Otis8 (8:20pm) — types the name

Dan (8:20pm) — ooo, a commercial for the Avatar land

James (8:20pm) — Hola! I

Otis8 (8:21pm) — is that going to be open before the sequel?

Dan (8:21pm) — this year

EricJ (8:21pm) — Ah, watching the ABC site for the Avatar commercial?

Dan (8:22pm) — watching on TV

James (8:22pm) — Opens in May

EricJ (8:22pm) — Might as well go there, we're not getting the sequels...

EricJ (8:22pm) — Might as well go there, we're not getting the sequels...

Otis8 (8:22pm) — haha

James (8:24pm) — Didn't know about the tip Otis!

Randall (8:24pm) — @James

Randall (8:24pm) — @Otis8 @Otis8 @Otis8

Randall (8:24pm) — Huh.

James (8:25pm) — @Randall ?%*#&&$(

EricJ (8:25pm) — Yes, Q-Bert?

James (8:25pm) — Can everyone see the message when you do that or just the recipiant

Dan (8:25pm) — i can see it

Otis8 (8:26pm) — I see both

James (8:26pm) — cool cool cool

James (8:26pm) — few minutes away

Otis8 (8:27pm) — Hope they don't go overboard with trump.

James (8:27pm) — Me too. I watch movies to get away from politics. If I want politics I wouldn't be at the movies!

Randall (8:28pm) — Not a Trump fan, but I would be fine with no Trump mentions.

Otis8 (8:28pm) — yup yup

Ben (8:28pm) — Back baby!

Randall (8:28pm) — Ben!

Otis8 (8:28pm) — what timing!

Dan (8:28pm) — woot

ibrmacf (8:28pm) — Just in time!

Ben (8:28pm) — here we go!

Randall (8:28pm) — Tess says hi.

James (8:29pm) — I don't want to see stuff about politics I like or don't like at the movies. Trying to get away!

Ben (8:29pm) — and hi to her too!

James (8:29pm) — hola

Ben (8:29pm) — Im running late but I'll be there in a half hour! ;)

Ben (8:29pm) — hey James!

Ben (8:29pm) — Gangs all here!

Dan (8:30pm) — here we go

Dan (8:30pm) — and we open with "Can't Stop The Feeling"

Ben (8:30pm) — justin

Randall (8:30pm) — JT on the move.

Randall (8:31pm) — Nice energy to start with.

Ben (8:31pm) — i liked trolls

Randall (8:32pm) — Just watched the trailer, and thought.... Ugh.

Ben (8:32pm) — yeah

Ben (8:32pm) — it it was a fun surprise

James (8:32pm) — better than advertised

Ben (8:33pm) — this is a cool way to get a nominated song played too

Ben (8:33pm) — kinda makes the Oscars feel like a cheap music show tho!

EricJ (8:34pm) — Now I'm starting to wonder that it's NOT going to be the Moana song

ibrmacf (8:35pm) — I'm glad that song's out of the way

Ben (8:35pm) — its absolutely no indication

EricJ (8:36pm) — Any other good streaming sites, this one's running slow

ibrmacf (8:36pm) — First joke of this country already

Ben (8:36pm) — it to the quick

James (8:37pm) — that was quick

James (8:38pm) — glad they're doing a Damon joke

Dan (8:39pm) — I always think of the "I'm F'n Matt Damon" song everytime they do Kimmel/Damon feud XD

EricJ (8:41pm) — Well, that stinks--The Academy cracked down on showing it's own streaming coverage, and my area's blacked out.

ibrmacf (8:42pm) — Try this, Eric: http://www.livenewschat.eu/the-oscars-live-stream/

Dan (8:44pm) — I liked the Meryl Streep mini-roast XD

EricJ (8:44pm) — Now, if I can just get the site to load...

Ben (8:45pm) — .

James (8:45pm) — 78% of AV entries chose Mahershala Ali, Moonlight

Ben (8:45pm) — Think it was an anti-roast, Dan!

Dan (8:46pm) — heh heh, they played "You've Got a Friend in Me" for Alicia

Dan (8:46pm) — @Ben sound about right XD

EricJ (8:47pm) — Moonlight's not going to get Picture, so the actor will get it

Ben (8:47pm) — Yeah, tho I'd like Dev to get this.

James (8:48pm) — Meh. The kid in that movie should have been nominated

Ben (8:48pm) — hence a supporting nod

James (8:49pm) — The supporting actress category is a mess. Three of those nominees were barely in their films!

Ben (8:49pm) — Ali wins

Ben (8:49pm) — i think this year is a mess

Ben (8:49pm) — all over...just weird choices and wide open races

Ben (8:50pm) — Oscars so black? ;)

James (8:51pm) — Yep.

James (8:51pm) — I saw 7 of the Best pic nominees and I'm not sure more than 2-3 deserve it. Might be time to go back to 5 nominees

James (8:52pm) — Remember you can keep track of your score here: http://animatedviews.com/contest/oscar2017/results.php

ibrmacf (8:52pm) — Sorry, my browser crashed

James (8:53pm) — Randall, Tami is happy that you missed that one -- she missed it too

Ben (8:54pm) — Me too. Think I went for Dec.

Ben (8:54pm) — Dev.

James (8:54pm) — (My "yep" was too Ben's "all over...just weird choices and wide open races")

Randall (8:55pm) — I was just going to ask if you had done the scoring graph. It is a nice visual of myself going down in flames.

James (8:55pm) — Was that everything is awesome?

Dan (8:55pm) — yep

James (8:55pm) — Lots of animation references so far.

Ben (8:57pm) — I find her strange

James (8:58pm) — 76% of entries chose Star Trek Beyond

Dan (8:58pm) — whoa

Ben (8:58pm) — WTF!!!?!?!!?!!!

Dan (8:58pm) — shocked about that one

James (8:58pm) — "Academy Award winning film Suicide Squad"

James (8:58pm) — "Academy Award winning film Suicide Squad"

Ben (8:59pm) — "Oscar winning Suicide Squad"...? :?

Randall (8:59pm) — Nice. I think I got that one?

Dan (8:59pm) — there's something DCEU will have over Marvel at the moment

EricJ (8:59pm) — Makeup doesn't count--Besides I would've picked that one

Ben (9:00pm) — One was the less flashy, better makeup work

James (9:00pm) — 50% chose La La Land

Ben (9:00pm) — Ove. Dam spel czech.

EricJ (9:01pm) — When in doubt...

Dan (9:01pm) — Wow, another one

James (9:01pm) — Might be a weird night - the contest consensus is 1 for 3!

Ben (9:01pm) — oscars so weird!

James (9:02pm) — Oscars so whack

Ben (9:02pm) — Wow, quick commercials

Randall (9:03pm) — I am not yet on the board.

Dan (9:04pm) — Interesting Rolex commercial

Ben (9:05pm) — james and I will just rephrase each other' comments throughout the night! ;)

Dan (9:05pm) — woot

Ben (9:05pm) — is that the Cameron one? We've had that all evening

Ben (9:05pm) — and it's a bit odd

EricJ (9:05pm) — Gee, there's NEVER been a Rolex in a 007 one...

James (9:05pm) — Me and Ben are going to paraphrase the others' notes this evening

Dan (9:06pm) — more like various movie clips where the rolex gets flashed at some point

Ben (9:07pm) — oh, yeah, we had that too

Dan (9:07pm) — didn't think it would make me realize it was present in a tense scene in Che

Ben (9:07pm) — made more sense than the Cameron one!

James (9:07pm) — Trump joes every segment so far

James (9:07pm) — *jokes

ibrmacf (9:07pm) — Sorry back again

ibrmacf (9:08pm) — Do you have the link for the Results again please?

James (9:08pm) — 83% of AV entries chose O.J.: Made in America

Ben (9:08pm) — I missed that one

James (9:08pm) — http://animatedviews.com/contest/oscar2017/results.php

ibrmacf (9:08pm) — Thanks!

Ben (9:08pm) — SPARKLES!!!

Ben (9:09pm) — Taraji!

Ben (9:09pm) — Cookie!

Ben (9:09pm) — ;)

James (9:09pm) — Saw it. Interesting and not as long as it seemed. But you could skip the first two parts and still enjoy it

ibrmacf (9:10pm) — They got the NASA engineer herself!

James (9:10pm) — Saw it. Interesting and not doesn't feel as long as it was. But you could skip the first two parts and get the info most people are interested in.

James (9:10pm) — (OJ I mean)

Dan (9:11pm) — would be fun to see Life, Animated win

Dan (9:11pm) — though I picked OJ

EricJ (9:11pm) — "June 17, 1994" was an even more amazing ESPN OJ documentary

Ben (9:11pm) — ok wins

Ben (9:11pm) — OJ

ibrmacf (9:12pm) — I got that one!

Ben (9:12pm) — i went for 13, which seemed to get more buzz since OJ was too long

Ben (9:13pm) — and also because it is basically a TV series

EricJ (9:14pm) — It's not as tasteless as Seth MacFarlane..

James (9:14pm) — Moana song?

Ben (9:14pm) — Dwock!

ibrmacf (9:15pm) — How Far I'll Go time!

James (9:15pm) — Think there were better songs from Moana and La La Land that could have been nominated.

Ben (9:16pm) — uneeded

Randall (9:16pm) — I really wanted to see The Rock sing, too.

James (9:16pm) — try dat Ben

Dan (9:16pm) — totally, would've brought the house down (Rock singing)

James (9:16pm) — dang it - true dat

James (9:17pm) — Yikes - Tami is in first place!

Randall (9:18pm) — I am geting killed. Again.

Randall (9:18pm) — I am geting killed. Again.

Randall (9:18pm) — Good for Tam!

Dan (9:18pm) — even funnier if they had Jemaine perform "Shiny" XD

Ben (9:18pm) — Best live Oscar perf ever?

James (9:18pm) — I thought we had a chance at someone getting a perfect score this year, but after four awards that chance is already gone

James (9:18pm) — No. She was good, but a little pitchy

Ben (9:18pm) — great!!

Ben (9:19pm) — I put a fish in your basket

ibrmacf (9:19pm) — I'd have loved to see Shiny!

Randall (9:19pm) — What a moment for the kid.

James (9:19pm) — Thought we had a chance at someone getting everything right this year, but after just 4 awards that chance is gone

Dan (9:19pm) — with james. good performance, but hardly the best live oscar performance ever

Dan (9:20pm) — nevertheless, a great moment for her, absolutely

James (9:20pm) — Was very nice performance.

James (9:21pm) — Crowd could have showed a little more appreciation. Guess she wasn't famous enough for them to notice.

Ben (9:21pm) — well, in context of it being a very dynamic song, she's only 16, sang it in one take, live, and didn't flinch when she got hit by one of the fans...and made it feel effortless? Pretty darn good without being overblown. Yeah,

Dan (9:23pm) — gotta say, that's quite a hair style Halle Berry is wearing

ibrmacf (9:24pm) — I guess I missed the part where she got hit by a fan.

Randall (9:24pm) — Wig?

Ben (9:24pm) — As for this lady...must try harder

Dan (9:24pm) — *shrugs*

James (9:24pm) — Liked the performance. It was very good. But if you're setting the bar at "best ever" I have a nit to pick! :)

Ben (9:25pm) — oscars so bland right now

James (9:25pm) — Oscars so boring

James (9:25pm) — ;)

Randall (9:26pm) — Not quite Ellen ordering piza.

Randall (9:39pm) — Jackie! Cool.

James (9:39pm) — 84% of AV entries chose Viola Davis, Fences

James (9:40pm) — Who was probably in her movie more minutes than three of the other nominees combined

Ben (9:40pm) — Pleased for Anne Coats. And without Stalmaster we'd have never got Chris Reeve as Superman.

Ben (9:41pm) — mark Rylance and his silly hay

Ben (9:41pm) — hat

James (9:41pm) — chapeau

Dan (9:41pm) — man, tonight's been wacky, what with the surprise results and all the spelling errors XD

Ben (9:42pm) — can't remember who I picked for this but it doesn't matter...it's a crap shoot at this point

James (9:43pm) — You can view your picks here: http://animatedviews.com/contest/oscar2017/review.html

Ben (9:43pm) — I think this will be viola Davis, think I picked Miss moneypenny

Dan (9:44pm) — there we go, back in the game XD

Ben (9:45pm) — Cool. Should have got that one!

EricJ (9:45pm) — All my picks are retroactive "Oh, yeah, woulda picked that." Should have paid more attention to the list.

ibrmacf (9:45pm) — Nice, I'm glad we all got that one!

Ben (9:46pm) — does she get an oscar for this performance?

James (9:46pm) — :lol:

Dan (9:46pm) — :mrgreen:

James (9:47pm) — Love movies. Love acting. Hate how full of themselves they are. You have a great job. Be appreciative that you're not doing something harder.

Ben (9:47pm) — wheres the music?

James (9:48pm) — Was just thinking that to

James (9:48pm) — too

EricJ (9:48pm) — Oh, calm down, Viola, you're going to get six more unless you hang around the DCEU movies..

EricJ (9:49pm) — (Just published my blog entry--Whew, just in time.)

James (9:50pm) — Are there really 17 more awards?!

Dan (9:52pm) — man, first Twizzlers, now Junior Mints

James (9:53pm) — Ben called it!

Dan (9:53pm) — XD

Randall (9:54pm) — Kimmel stole Ben's joke.

Ben (9:55pm) — Worst Oscars in ages. No-no-nominations, weird choices from those nominations, not even any trump-trumping to liven things up. It's kind of just happening.

Dan (9:56pm) — it's certainly unmemorable compared to the last twenty years, I would imagine

EricJ (9:57pm) — If we don't care about new films, show the old ones--The Apartment moment is the best moment we've had so far

James (9:57pm) — 51% of entries chose The Salesman, Iran

Ben (9:58pm) — here we go...

James (9:58pm) — They went for politics with that one

Ben (9:58pm) — moana was the best moment, eric

Dan (9:58pm) — of course he's not there

ibrmacf (9:58pm) — The Salesman, awesome!

James (9:58pm) — Toni Erdmann was a lock until things got political

Dan (9:58pm) — yeah, the two musical performances have been the best thing so far

James (9:59pm) — "bans entry to the US"... for 90 days

Ben (9:59pm) — i picked Toni since it was getting a US remake

James (9:59pm) — how soon can I get into Iran I wonder

James (10:00pm) — Song?

Dan (10:00pm) — yep

James (10:01pm) — Knowing the academy, this will probably be the song that wins

James (10:01pm) — Obscure over popular

Ben (10:01pm) — this for the win

Dan (10:01pm) — didn't happen last year

EricJ (10:01pm) — Nope--Moana is the new Frozen

Ben (10:01pm) — ;)

Ben (10:01pm) — its city of stars or moana

James (10:01pm) — What's that make Zootopia?

James (10:02pm) — I'm betting City of Stars, though there were better songs in that movie

Ben (10:02pm) — and city has that annoying four note motif you can't get out of your head...

EricJ (10:02pm) — Best Animated

James (10:02pm) — Though I picked Trolls thinking La La might split their vote

Ben (10:02pm) — statler or Waldorf: well at least it was short!

EricJ (10:03pm) — Buh-huhuhuhuh!

ibrmacf (10:03pm) — I wonder if they'll have time to include Bill Paxton in the In Memoriam section this year?

James (10:03pm) — @EricJ I tried to type that but couldn't decide how to spell it!

Ben (10:04pm) — Nope to bill, but maybe a mention.

James (10:04pm) — Bill Pullman is dead?

James (10:04pm) — ;)

Ben (10:04pm) — Paxton

EricJ (10:05pm) — Paxton was "Game over man!", Pullman was the ID4 president

Ben (10:05pm) — pullman died some time ago

Ben (10:05pm) — BAF coming up

Dan (10:05pm) — XD

James (10:05pm) — (On Rifftrax there's a running joke that they're the same person.)

Ben (10:06pm) — Zootopia for the win, Kubo wouldn't be a surprise

James (10:06pm) — Hoping for Kubo, expecting Zootopia

EricJ (10:06pm) — The Frozen audience split into Zootopia and Moana, but there are more Z-heads

Ben (10:06pm) — thats clever, because they're both called Bill... :roll:

Ben (10:07pm) — The frozen audience are not voting for these awards

Randall (10:07pm) — Same as James.

Dan (10:07pm) — here we go

James (10:07pm) — I think the joke is more they take the same types of role

Ben (10:07pm) — awe, no animated presenters?

Randall (10:07pm) — My kids vote for Kubo, too.

Dan (10:08pm) — short first

James (10:08pm) — 74% chose Piper.

James (10:08pm) — I'm betting Pear Cider or Borrowed win

Dan (10:08pm) — this was tough, went with piper

James (10:08pm) — oops

EricJ (10:08pm) — Piper

Dan (10:08pm) — got it

Ben (10:08pm) — Piper was just so typical, tho

Dan (10:09pm) — Pixar's 15-year drought in the category ends

James (10:09pm) — When was the last time a studio won this one

EricJ (10:09pm) — But it was CUTE! ^_^

Ben (10:09pm) — classic voters voting on the name, didn't watch the others

Randall (10:09pm) — I didn't care for Piper. Meh.

ibrmacf (10:09pm) — I didn't care for Piper either, but knew they'd pick it.

EricJ (10:10pm) — Wouldn't give it to Inner Workings next year

James (10:10pm) — 88% of entries chose Zootopia

Ben (10:10pm) — studios have won recently. Didnt Get A Horse win?

Dan (10:10pm) — stepping on dresses tonight

EricJ (10:11pm) — Still think it's not Zootopia, after that?

Ben (10:11pm) — Yep

Ben (10:11pm) — Z wins

Ben (10:12pm) — bet it was close tho

ibrmacf (10:12pm) — Zootopia whoo!

James (10:13pm) — Horse didn't win but Feast did

Ben (10:13pm) — the film has obviously worked... :oops:

droosan (10:13pm) — all the BAF noms were good this year. congrats to Zootopia!

James (10:13pm) — 80% chose La La Land

Ben (10:14pm) — Bah!

ibrmacf (10:15pm) — First win for La La Land, lol!

Dan (10:15pm) — their first win of the night

James (10:15pm) — I went out on a limb with Hail Caesar there, thinking they might give it one since La La would get others.

Ben (10:15pm) — first and hopefully only...! ;)

Ben (10:16pm) — Can't believe how low my score is so far!

Ben (10:17pm) — This isn't set up at all, is it?

EricJ (10:17pm) — So, none of them were watching on their cellphones, then?

James (10:17pm) — They said it wasn't but there reaction was muted

James (10:18pm) — their

Ben (10:18pm) — hilarious if one had a gun...

James (10:18pm) — OK that woman looked surprised

Dan (10:18pm) — they're in disbelief XD

James (10:18pm) — We all don't have guns Ben!

James (10:18pm) — ;)

Ben (10:20pm) — i did say "one".

Ben (10:20pm) — getting pointless now

James (10:20pm) — OK, now you're going too far the other way!

James (10:21pm) — Is this supposed to be Kimmel's Ellen-selfie-moment?

Dan (10:21pm) — wow, a Teen Wolf 2 reference

ibrmacf (10:21pm) — This Jimmy Kimmel guests segment is going on kinda long!

Randall (10:22pm) — Well, still best part of the show, just about.

Ben (10:22pm) — famois car?

Ben (10:22pm) — herbie?

Ben (10:23pm) — yeah, was thinking that

Ben (10:23pm) — on TV...

Dan (10:23pm) — there was a film version, though

James (10:24pm) — Tehy made a movie version believe it or not

Dan (10:24pm) — the Tumbler?

EricJ (10:24pm) — Yeah, DeLorean - Not the Aston Martin, or the Interceptor

James (10:24pm) — I'm going with Ben

Ben (10:24pm) — yeah, but no one remembers the car

Ben (10:24pm) — or the film!

James (10:24pm) — Maybe a time travel joke about clinton and trump

Ben (10:25pm) — theyre two years too late for the De Loreon tho!

EricJ (10:25pm) — Chitty would be better

droosan (10:25pm) — Herbie?

EricJ (10:25pm) — Christine?

Ben (10:26pm) — theyve been too specific to say THE most famous in movie history

EricJ (10:26pm) — Anyone who wants to read the blog post during the boring commercials:

James (10:27pm) — Already read it. Interesting points!

Ben (10:29pm) — point?

Ben (10:29pm) — of this, I mean?

James (10:30pm) — not sure? Might have made sense with Foreign film as a counterpoint

Dan (10:30pm) — editing, cinematography?

James (10:30pm) — to us talking about them

Ben (10:30pm) — VFX

James (10:30pm) — 81% chose The Jungle Book for VFX

Ben (10:30pm) — so many brits this year

James (10:30pm) — 84 actually

EricJ (10:30pm) — Rogue One, because we just got the Peter Cushing joke

James (10:30pm) — Darn Brits taking American jobs!

James (10:30pm) — ;)

Ben (10:31pm) — jungle book!

Dan (10:31pm) — woot

James (10:31pm) — Nice for Kubo artists to just get nominated I bet

ibrmacf (10:32pm) — Nice, Jungle Book!

Ben (10:33pm) — yeah, for sure...but it's still odd to nominate animation for VFX unless the effect is an. Image

Ben (10:33pm) — ...is an animated character.

ibrmacf (10:33pm) — It is the DeLorean!

Ben (10:33pm) — De Lorean...two years two late

Randall (10:33pm) — BTTF

Ben (10:33pm) — too late!

Dan (10:34pm) — and there it is

James (10:34pm) — Nice shoes

Randall (10:34pm) — 2 Vancouverites.

James (10:35pm) — 78% of AV entries chose La La Land

James (10:36pm) — Any film editors want to disagree?

James (10:36pm) — :)

Ben (10:36pm) — yeah

Ben (10:36pm) — Hacksaw for the win

EricJ (10:36pm) — When was the last time you saw a melting film reel?

Ben (10:36pm) — cool

James (10:37pm) — Apparently more than just Ben!

ibrmacf (10:37pm) — Hacksaw Ridge won that?

Ben (10:37pm) — yep, and deservedly so

James (10:37pm) — Only nine got that one -- including me

James (10:38pm) — That little kid did great

Randall (10:39pm) — That one got me into a tie with Ben.

Randall (10:40pm) — Gotta love the kid.

droosan (10:40pm) — kind of amazed I'm not in last place actually. But there's still a chance! :)

Dan (10:40pm) — Casey Affleck kinda looked stoned in that shot

EricJ (10:40pm) — As one tweet put it, "La La Land has now tied Suicide Squad for Oscar wins."

ibrmacf (10:41pm) — @Eric: Lol!

James (10:41pm) — :lol:

James (10:41pm) — Didn't like film editing on La La, but thought the cinematography was great

James (10:42pm) — (cue Ben...) :)

James (10:42pm) — Despite all the Mel Gibson jokes, Hacksaw Ridge has two wins

EricJ (10:43pm) — Like winning the Razzie Redeemed award this year?

Ben (10:43pm) — I thought it was great in a couple of instances, actually

James (10:43pm) — 45% of AV chose Joe's Violin

Dan (10:44pm) — another tough one to pick

Randall (10:44pm) — Oh, I like her. Salma.

Randall (10:44pm) — No idea what I picked

Ben (10:44pm) — I know what you like there, Randy

Randall (10:45pm) — Obviously.

ibrmacf (10:45pm) — I wanted White Helmets to win, but didn't think it would. Awesome!

Ben (10:45pm) — ooh, not Joe or Miles. Think this has won more for the subject than the filmmaking proficiency.

Ben (10:46pm) — Amazon *and* Netflix both have wins

James (10:46pm) — @Ben Thats often the case with Hollywood

James (10:46pm) — 46% of AV chose Ennemis Interieurs

Ben (10:47pm) — Great dress, Salma! ;)

Ben (10:48pm) — sing was good. That snail made me laugh... :roll:

ibrmacf (10:48pm) — Nice, I got Sing!

Ben (10:48pm) — Sounds like the odd couple theme

ibrmacf (10:49pm) — If only that category wasn't a tiebreaker, I'd be tied in the #1 spot with the others in the contest now :P !

James (10:51pm) — Leslie!

James (10:54pm) — Gotta say you can make the argument that Trump was wrong about Streep very easily. But don't use this year's nomination as proof!

EricJ (10:55pm) — Uh, why is Caesar quoting from Henry IV?

Ben (10:56pm) — how anout this one, James?

Ben (10:57pm) — Lol

James (10:57pm) — That's a better one

Ben (10:58pm) — loved Florence the film tho.

James (10:58pm) — Not putting down her acting in this years film. But no one else would have gotten a nomination for a film like that.

James (10:58pm) — 89% chose La La Land

Ben (10:59pm) — except for judi dench, Julie Walters, etc...

Ben (10:59pm) — think la la will take this

Ben (10:59pm) — think la la will take this

Ben (10:59pm) — think la la will take this

EricJ (10:59pm) — Editing, Cinematography and Screenplay...But somebody else got editing!

Dan (10:59pm) — and it did

Ben (10:59pm) — about the best thing about it

EricJ (10:59pm) — If it get Screenplay, we can call it

James (11:00pm) — Wont win screenplay

EricJ (11:00pm) — Score?

James (11:00pm) — I liked La La put had some big story issues

James (11:00pm) — put = but

Ben (11:00pm) — doubt score, but prob song

James (11:01pm) — Betting on both

Ben (11:01pm) — ...like being a rip off of New York, New York

James (11:03pm) — Casey Afflecks was funny

ibrmacf (11:03pm) — Mean Tweets time....oh boy

Randall (11:04pm) — Not bad.

Dan (11:04pm) — song time

James (11:05pm) — City of stars in this key is much better than the range Gossling sang it in

Ben (11:08pm) — you mean "sang" ;)

James (11:11pm) — Though I would have stuck another day of sun in there for one of the nomination, hoping La La wins song -- even though I picked Trolls thinking La La fans might split their vote.

Ben (11:11pm) — Song will be Moana or Stars

EricJ (11:11pm) — Moana has become the new Disney "Girl power anthem" (but at least it's heterosexual)

Ben (11:13pm) — erics desperate to make Moana the new Frozen

James (11:14pm) — 96% of AV entries chose La La Land

James (11:14pm) — Newman would be nice though

Ben (11:14pm) — gonna be la la

Ben (11:14pm) — because it's showy

Dan (11:15pm) — yep

James (11:15pm) — Showy aint bad in a musical

ibrmacf (11:15pm) — That was an easy one

Ben (11:15pm) — exactly

James (11:16pm) — Scarlett................

Dan (11:16pm) — From Nick Fury to Black Widow, I see XD

Ben (11:16pm) — wearing cotton candy!

James (11:16pm) — 81% chose City Of Stars, La La Land

James (11:17pm) — @Ben yummy

Dan (11:18pm) — XD

ibrmacf (11:18pm) — Nice, City of Stars!

Ben (11:18pm) — my love for la la is well known, but I would argue that Moana had the more authentic story song

James (11:19pm) — Moana was more hit/miss with its songs, but that was one of the good ones

James (11:20pm) — Who gets forgotten?

Ben (11:20pm) — i see dead people

ibrmacf (11:20pm) — In Memoriam Section

James (11:24pm) — Sara did a great job

Ben (11:24pm) — Nicely done!

Dan (11:24pm) — truly

Ben (11:24pm) — I did not know about Marni Nixon...kinda bummed about that

EricJ (11:24pm) — Judy Collins' version used to annoy the crap out of us, but that was pretty darn good

ibrmacf (11:24pm) — Glad Aniston mentioned Bill Paxton

Randall (11:25pm) — Well done on the song.

James (11:25pm) — Six awards left

ibrmacf (11:25pm) — @Ben: Oh yeah, it was sad when she died last year :(

Ben (11:26pm) — i see in July, completely missed that.

Ben (11:26pm) — Screenplay next

ibrmacf (11:26pm) — I wish they showed Charmian Carr. She'll always be our Liesl :( !

James (11:27pm) — Oh my gosh!

James (11:27pm) — Love this Damon joke!

Ben (11:28pm) — the theatre was completely empty!

James (11:29pm) — "and guest"!

James (11:29pm) — 65% of AV chose Manchester by the Sea for OSP

James (11:30pm) — 78% of AV chose Moonlight for ASP

James (11:30pm) — HATED Manchester by the Sea!

James (11:30pm) — OK, maybe didn't hate, but it was not good and I don't get the love

Ben (11:31pm) — Manchester and Moonlight for me

James (11:31pm) — Same for me

ibrmacf (11:31pm) — Got Manchester, whoo!

EricJ (11:32pm) — Moonlight for the compensation prize

Randall (11:32pm) — Tied with Tami!

James (11:33pm) — She went to bed but told me to wake her up if she beats you badly ;)

Ben (11:34pm) — I think James would very much like to be tied with Amy! ;)

Dan (11:34pm) — XD

Ben (11:34pm) — nice spread there

James (11:34pm) — :D

Ben (11:34pm) — pic just got more interesting

Dan (11:35pm) — Still in the big tie, which is in fourth. I need folks to drop like flies to win this

Ben (11:36pm) — So glad la la isn't sweeping

James (11:37pm) — Night isn't over

ibrmacf (11:37pm) — That last award put me down, lol. I thought Hidden Figures would win due to the political climate.

EricJ (11:37pm) — Now I'm glad I wasn't in it.

Ben (11:39pm) — It hasn't swept though

Ben (11:39pm) — May get three more

James (11:40pm) — Would like to see La La win some more just to may be get Hollywood's attention that musicals don't have to be edgy or dark, or snarky to be successful. Sincere works too.

James (11:40pm) — On th other hand, I only have La La winning 1 of the last 4 so it would help my score if they don't sweep the rest!

EricJ (11:40pm) — Broadway works too, but Les Miz was too depressing, and everyone hated Meryl in Into the Woods

James (11:41pm) — Eh, I like original over Broadway for movies

Ben (11:41pm) — yeah...that beauty and the beast looks like it's a real downer!

James (11:41pm) — 89% chose Damien Chazelle, La La Land

EricJ (11:42pm) — But the originals think they're inventing musicals for the VERY FIRST TIME...Every time

Ben (11:42pm) — Probably chazelle

Dan (11:42pm) — yep

Ben (11:42pm) — passion pic wins

ibrmacf (11:43pm) — He's the youngest Best Director winner at the Oscars?

James (11:43pm) — @EricJ I'd say La La felt for like an homage

Dan (11:43pm) — certainly looks like he's the youngest to win XD

James (11:44pm) — I'm in trouble if this win is a omen of things to come!

EricJ (11:45pm) — You expected it to be something else?

Dan (11:45pm) — Moonlight looks to be the film that could steal Picture from La La Land

Randall (11:46pm) — Droo, our "industry guy", is in last place. And I am not.

James (11:46pm) — I bragged I was one of only 9 to get film editing right. Might as well admit I was one of only 9 to miss director!

Dan (11:46pm) — Best Actor

James (11:46pm) — @Randall You're tied with my 13 year old son!

James (11:47pm) — 46% of AV chose Denzel Washington, Fences

Dan (11:48pm) — Captain Marvel!

Ben (11:48pm) — Denzel or Brofleck

EricJ (11:50pm) — Denzel

Dan (11:51pm) — ah

Ben (11:51pm) — called it

ibrmacf (11:51pm) — Nice, got Casey!

James (11:51pm) — That one will help me but I think I am in trouble with the next one!

James (11:52pm) — Wow, Denzel looked upset

Dan (11:52pm) — that may have been the game changer, looking at the spread

Ben (11:52pm) — who did you pick?

James (11:52pm) — Huppert

Ben (11:52pm) — yeah...you're in trouble.

James (11:53pm) — Thought Academy might want to honor her the only chance they'll probably get

James (11:53pm) — 89% of AV chose Emma Stone, La La Land

ibrmacf (11:54pm) — I picked Portman...oh boy

James (11:55pm) — Negga was my #2 choice

EricJ (11:55pm) — Eh...Stone.

Randall (11:56pm) — I think I picked Negga.

Ben (11:56pm) — Stone all the way

James (11:57pm) — Overrated... this year

Ben (11:57pm) — yep

Dan (11:57pm) — XD

Randall (11:58pm) — Yep.

James (11:58pm) — (that was towards Streep BTW)

EricJ (11:58pm) — Meryl has to thank the Golden Globes for every nomination she's gotten for the last five years

ibrmacf (11:58pm) — Well, I've done worse than last year officially

James (11:59pm) — Unless La La loses it looks like dmccd777 will be our winner

Randall (11:59pm) — The Rand-Tam battle comes down to the last category!

Dan (12:00am) — XD

Randall (12:00am) — Judy, too.

James (12:00am) — You might be in luck -- Tami picked Fences for Best Pic

James (12:03am) — These two look really good

James (12:04am) — 85% chose La La Land

James (12:04am) — I saw 7 of these 9 nominees. Not sure that many deserved it!

Ben (12:04am) — She looks better than she has in a few years, that's for sure.

EricJ (12:04am) — I missed, who is it? (Besides Beatty, I mean)

James (12:04am) — Faye Dunaway

Randall (12:05am) — Faye looks good, Beatty less so.

James (12:05am) — This is the only scene they ever show from Fences

Ben (12:06am) — What an odd bunch of movies.

James (12:06am) — Really need to go back to five

James (12:07am) — Lon would have been so good with about 30 minutes cut

James (12:07am) — Lion

James (12:07am) — Hidden Figures shouldn't be here

James (12:07am) — Manchester by the Sea - ugh

EricJ (12:08am) — Why is it still eight, they only kept it open last year for Inside Out!

Ben (12:08am) — The one one reason I want to see Manchester win is so Damon can get one over on Kimmell!

James (12:08am) — ok, thats true

Ben (12:09am) — and.......we're done

Ben (12:09am) — la la lands

James (12:09am) — 7 wins

EricJ (12:09am) — Tying with Titanic for nominations should have an asterisk when it isn't a five-Picture yera

ibrmacf (12:09am) — And La La Land!

James (12:10am) — dmccd777 wins with 18 out of 22

ibrmacf (12:10am) — Well, thanks guys! I enjoyed doing this yearly chat with y'all! Gonna hit the sack now! Congrats to the contest winner!

Randall (12:11am) — Take that, Tami! Whoo-hoo!

EricJ (12:11am) — I'm just here for the chat, but think I'll bow out. Still haven't seen Spotlight on my Prime queue.

James (12:11am) — WHAT!!!!!

Randall (12:11am) — Doing this chat makes the Oscars better, for sure.

Dan (12:11am) — XD

James (12:11am) — Where is Steve Harvey

Ben (12:11am) — fuuuuuuuuuuuu...........

Dan (12:11am) — whoa, wait a minute

Randall (12:12am) — WHAT.

EricJ (12:12am) — We thought that happened with The Departed!

ibrmacf (12:12am) — Waitt!!!

ibrmacf (12:12am) — Moonlight

EricJ (12:12am) — (And Jack was just as crazy as Warren!)

James (12:13am) — And Randall and Tami tie!

ibrmacf (12:13am) — WOW, lol!

Randall (12:13am) — Whoa.

EricJ (12:13am) — And now I'm depressed--That was supposed to NOT win!

Ben (12:14am) — cool...la la didn't take it! Wow.

James (12:14am) — Sad for La La. Hate when a movie wins best picture without winning in other categories,

Ben (12:14am) — 6 wins, James. ;)

James (12:15am) — Only five people predicted this.

Randall (12:15am) — Okay, tied with Tami. Handshake.

James (12:15am) — dmccd777 still wins

EricJ (12:15am) — @James...Uh, Supporting Actor?

Ben (12:15am) — won screenplay...that was the pointer, and best supporting actor

James (12:15am) — More than that I mean

EricJ (12:16am) — Come back, Jimmy, you didn't screw it up!

James (12:16am) — not terrible, but like to see my pest pics win across board

James (12:16am) — best

James (12:16am) — Weird show!

Ben (12:16am) — F-me, that was shocking and tense!

Dan (12:17am) — what a weird and wacky Oscars

Dan (12:17am) — XD

Ben (12:17am) — at least we got a decent memorable moment!

EricJ (12:17am) — And Beatty has just officially finished crazying himself out of the industry...

James (12:17am) — Sounds like they screwed up the envelopes?

Randall (12:18am) — Yeah. Sounds like. What a goof,

Ben (12:18am) — Yeah, wrong envelope, dunaway improvised and said the name of the film

Ben (12:18am) — warren should have stopped it and said somethjng

Randall (12:21am) — Yeah, he was too slow on the uptake there.

Ben (12:21am) — Well, I'm off...5:30am here, so gonna catch some sleep!

Randall (12:22am) — G'night!

Dan (12:22am) — night ben! Night y'all!

Randall (12:23am) — Wow, that show went WAY over.

James (12:26am) — night guys!

James (12:26am) — gotta go do housekeeping

Ben (12:34am) — Wow, crazy show!

Ben (12:35am) — We had some company this year, so there was a nice bunch of us to catch that upset at the end! Silly how so many places are reporting is was Beatty who slipped up when it was Dunaway who read out the wrong name.

Ben (12:36am) — Thanks for being around again...see you next year! ;)
