James, you might want to check your Oscar calendar. ;) :)

Rats! Came to fill my ballot out today and found the deadline was last night. :( Wanted to defend my title from last year! Guess that won't happen. Good luck to all.

James • 2/24/2019, 7:41 pm
Looks like half of you guys didn't enter the contest!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 7:41 pm
:)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:42 pm
I'm in the contest :D !


James • 2/24/2019, 7:42 pm
Yep, you, me, and Ben!


Daniel • 2/24/2019, 7:43 pm
Not Eric? Gasp! ;)


James • 2/24/2019, 7:43 pm
Nor you?!


James • 2/24/2019, 7:43 pm
:)

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:43 pm
I got too depressed to enter: No matter who we want, it's going to Roma because of the new "Second place wins" voting glitch.


Daniel • 2/24/2019, 7:44 pm
With my spotty visits its no shock for me. :P

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:45 pm
anyone seen roma?


James • 2/24/2019, 7:46 pm
What glitch is that


Daniel • 2/24/2019, 7:46 pm
Silence says it all. ;)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:46 pm
Black Panther is the only of the 9 Best Picture nominations that I've seen, lol!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:46 pm
Oscar votes list 5 favorites, and #1 gets more votes than #2 pick--

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:47 pm
And if no one agrees on #1, but EVERYONE agrees on #2, guess who gets more votes...And wins.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 7:47 pm
Hello, Bees. XD

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:47 pm
That's probably how Moonlight beat La La Land.

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:48 pm
hey dan 2! ;)


James • 2/24/2019, 7:48 pm
so not an actual glitch, you're just talking about preferential voting?

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:49 pm
Preferential voting, but it's a problem.


James • 2/24/2019, 7:50 pm
10 minutes!

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:51 pm
yippie

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:51 pm
ready for some queen.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:51 pm
Yes, Gaga should be appearing tonight. ;)


Daniel • 2/24/2019, 7:52 pm
:lol:


James • 2/24/2019, 7:52 pm
They should have Rob Lowe come out at the beginning like 30 years ago when he danced with Snow White (the last time there was no host}, look around, shake his head no, then walk off stage


Dacey • 2/24/2019, 7:52 pm
Hey James. We have someone wanting to register to enter the chat. They are called "Lizzie." They say the CAPTCHA isn't working. Is there anything I can do?


Daniel • 2/24/2019, 7:52 pm
That could've worked.


James • 2/24/2019, 7:53 pm
I disabled it about 30 minutes ago.


James • 2/24/2019, 7:53 pm
Should work now


Dacey • 2/24/2019, 7:54 pm
Yeah. Just heard back from the member in question literally right after I posted her and she says she's in. Thanks.

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:55 pm
5 minutes.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 7:55 pm
https://game.oscar.go.com has its own game running tonight on ABC's site, for those not in the contest.


James • 2/24/2019, 7:56 pm
Why would anyone not have entered our game?


James • 2/24/2019, 7:56 pm
:)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:57 pm
Can someone post a link to the scoreboard so we can keep track please?


James • 2/24/2019, 7:57 pm
http://animatedviews.com/oscars/2019/results.php


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:58 pm
I wonder if they'll have time to include Stanley Donen in the 'In Memoriam' section since his death was only announced yesterday?


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:58 pm
Thanks, James!


James • 2/24/2019, 7:58 pm
Here's a game for tonight's show: Count how many minutes of things that could have been cut to make room for the four categories they weren't originally going to show.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 7:58 pm
Probably in some text that crawls afterward.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
Helloo!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
Well, I made it, Oscars and all!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
Hello Ben!


James • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
New chat. who dis?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
Hello!!!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
Bidet, Ben! XD

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 7:59 pm
lol


James • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
Hola!
User avatar
Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
um, who are you?

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
hello lizzie.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
hew we go


James • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
here


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
Guess they're gonna rock us XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:00 pm
Who me?


James • 2/24/2019, 8:01 pm
That was an abrupt ending

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:01 pm
FTR the ABC tablet app is working, synching and rocking.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:02 pm
ending!? Just started here

Otis8 • 2/24/2019, 8:02 pm
FTR?

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:03 pm
(Actually, "Rock You" and "Champions" were supposed to be sung together, since one is about football hooligans, and the other is about loyal Arsenal fans.)


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:03 pm
Howdy! Hey, Ben is here.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:03 pm
He's no Freddie


James • 2/24/2019, 8:03 pm
The gang's all here!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:04 pm
Weee XD


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:04 pm
So until about half an hour ago we weren’t going to make it

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:05 pm
And Ben's sister :)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:05 pm
Hello everyone who've just arrived!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:05 pm
Oh, wait, "Not available in area" -Back over to the delay site


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:05 pm
then my sister (that’s her above) suggested we try a free trial of a system that lets you stream the movie channel that carries the Oscars here in the uk


James • 2/24/2019, 8:06 pm
Nice to have you here Lizlak. Feel free to start giving up embarrassing Ben stories whenever you want!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:06 pm
Good job, Lizzie!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:06 pm
i think you know them all james


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:06 pm
Starting off with some SNL girls XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:06 pm
Challenge accepted


James • 2/24/2019, 8:07 pm
First political joke 7 minutes in.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:07 pm
i Tried the abc streams but the vpn I used had a data limit,which obviously jammed up about five minutes in!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:07 pm
This is my favourite part of the night. I am tied for first.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:08 pm
:)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:08 pm
we just got the Mexico joke, so I guess we're about a minute behind you,


James • 2/24/2019, 8:08 pm
These jokes aren't that great...


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:08 pm
pretty flat so far


James • 2/24/2019, 8:09 pm
Best Supporting Actress: 83% in our contest chose Regina King


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:09 pm
so, literally no intro?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:09 pm
No one has actually said "welcome" to the academy awards


James • 2/24/2019, 8:10 pm
Could've used a little less intro actually!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:10 pm
this would have been the first time in over 30 years that I didn’t watch if I hadn’t seen it tonight. Thanks Lizzie!!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:11 pm
Actually pretty cool...for the first time ever I’m tucked up in bed and watching on two iPads...one with the show, and one with our chat!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:11 pm
Which iPad app has the show?


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:12 pm
Still in first! I am basking.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:12 pm
BTW, on the results page you can mouse over the grid to see what every person in the contest chose in every category!


James • 2/24/2019, 8:12 pm
http://animatedviews.com/oscars/2019/results.php


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:13 pm
Regina takes it. I’m one for one so far! ;)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:13 pm
1 for 1 too, whoo!


James • 2/24/2019, 8:13 pm
ummmmmmm.......


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:13 pm
the fact they have no host should cut down on lame bits of business and make room for the other awards


James • 2/24/2019, 8:13 pm
Looks like you picked Amy Adams, Ben


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
Riley and Huey taking home an Oscar :)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
yeah...I was spoofing...


James • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
That;s an odd couple

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
One less for your favourite Ben

James • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
Gotcha, a bit late!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
my pick with Regina, but something said Amy right at the end.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
You can tell an age line by who says "No stupid dance numbers!" and who says "No pizza and tourists in the theater!"


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:14 pm
I am ahead of Ben! Woo hoo!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
Basking. Right here.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
Dont get used to it, Mr C.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
Best Documentary : 62% in our contest said Free Solo

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
Helen's a lucky girl

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
RBG


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:15 pm
Does this all feel a bit rudimentary and perfunctory?


James • 2/24/2019, 8:16 pm
True, Eric!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:16 pm
as in, Free Solo, the dirctor's cut?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:16 pm
;)

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:16 pm
RBG I reckon


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:16 pm
yes, although I think I picked solo


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:17 pm
my birthday!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:17 pm
its Edna mode!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:17 pm
ahh, solo it is


James • 2/24/2019, 8:17 pm
You can see your picks here by mousing over the categories: http://animatedviews.com/oscars/2019/results.php

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:17 pm
Hmm


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:18 pm
Guess there's a bit of a delay to mute that cuss drop XD


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:18 pm
Darn, I picked RBG. I'm still upset that Won't You Be My Neighbor wasn't nominated!


James • 2/24/2019, 8:18 pm
Inside jokes. Awkward silences. Should have planned this speech!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:18 pm
everyone pocked RBG, but I went with the bunch that voters don’t actuakly watch the films and went with the title that had solo in it. Seriously.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:18 pm
And so much for first place.....


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:19 pm
Neighbor should have gotten a nod.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:20 pm
why didn’t that get included again? As well as They Shall Not Grow Old. Outstanding,


James • 2/24/2019, 8:20 pm
I think everyone in the room that is playing is tied!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:20 pm
Neighbor is the stuff of which cuddly populist winners are MADE.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:20 pm
Rand is out front, though.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:21 pm
They Shall Not should have been nominated. That was outstanding!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:22 pm
What i said. ;)


James • 2/24/2019, 8:22 pm
Neighbor was just snubbed, as most popular docs seem to be


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:22 pm
Well that was an odd Google commercial


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:23 pm
make up coming up, unless they’re presenting it right now ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:23 pm
i think Christian Bale will get it for playing Chevy Chase.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:24 pm
What the heck? Tom Morello?


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:24 pm
Chevy Chase, lol!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:24 pm
Chevy Chase! :-DVice I reckon although they did a good job with Liz I


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:24 pm
Digging deep into that presenter barrel, right?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:25 pm
you will not see anyone by Chevy now.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:25 pm
Who's this guy?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:25 pm
*but*


James • 2/24/2019, 8:25 pm
Makeup and Hair: 81% of those in our contest chose Vice

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:26 pm
Makeup is always Fantasy, Historical and Blood, and if there's no Fantasy, the Historical wins.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:26 pm
Chevy!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:27 pm
Guess I should have gone with the obvious choice.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:27 pm
Vice it is!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:27 pm
cut to commercial!
User avatar
Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:28 pm
Oh man, that's harsh

James • 2/24/2019, 8:28 pm
Oh my


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:28 pm
Off the stage!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:28 pm
Poor them!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
No way! They cut them off!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
What are we looking at here?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
time to go! You’re not helping the argument for showing your category!


James • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
Costume Design: 60% of those in our contest chose The Favourite


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
they did ramble though, not a good acceptance.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
Looks like the speeches will be the Victim next year...


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:29 pm
Yep.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:30 pm
Yep, was thinking that too Ben! Should've stepped up your game knowing you were saved from the chopping block


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:30 pm
fingers crossed for Sandy.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:30 pm
Panther!!!!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:31 pm
shocker!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:31 pm
Darn, knew it was Panther, but chickened out and went for Favorite


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:31 pm
Black Panther, huh?


James • 2/24/2019, 8:31 pm
Wonder if this is a sign of things to come for Marvel...


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:32 pm
Weird lady.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:32 pm
She funny

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:33 pm
("First" black superhero...Those are the folks voting for Picture.)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:33 pm
awe, good speech

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:34 pm
We've just had adverts!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:34 pm
Agreed, Ben. Pretty good speech.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:34 pm
it kind of does lose the "glue" in not having a host


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:34 pm
?? Lizzie?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:35 pm
oh, I see what you mean


James • 2/24/2019, 8:36 pm
I like the speed they're going at but I worry that they're just getting these out of the way so they can have longer segments we won't care about


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:37 pm
Jennifer "screechy" Hudson on the way


James • 2/24/2019, 8:37 pm
8 people still perfect in the contest!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:38 pm
Sorry was booted from chat for some reason


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:38 pm
Not me!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:38 pm
th speed does feel like one after the other though...there isn’t really a feeling of it being a prestigious event


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:38 pm
These two make a sharp looking couple.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:38 pm
Production Design: 53% in the contest say The Favourite


James • 2/24/2019, 8:39 pm
nor I, Randall!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:39 pm
Wow!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:39 pm
Another for Panther!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:40 pm
Oh


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 8:40 pm
Black Panther again?


James • 2/24/2019, 8:40 pm
Why not let him go first why you look for your speech!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:40 pm
Did you see Adam driver's face? He was like, What tha....

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:41 pm
Sorry but think The Favourite should have got it


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:41 pm
Annouting


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:42 pm
whay!? Annoying. Over the top. Go away.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:42 pm
Music please


James • 2/24/2019, 8:42 pm
Hate when there are two of them in a "minor" category and one dominates the speech


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:43 pm
Poor guy barely got a word.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:43 pm
she is not making a Best Actress speech here (except in her head!j

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:43 pm
Yeah, don't worry love. I didn't want to say anything
User avatar
James • 2/24/2019, 8:44 pm
Cinematography: 81% in our contest chose Roma

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:44 pm
The black females think it's "their" night to say anything, and so do the show producers.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:44 pm
Black Panther again!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:45 pm
And so it is Roma.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:45 pm
:)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:45 pm
fist black and white since Schindler's Lift


James • 2/24/2019, 8:46 pm
Randall, Tami wants me to let you know she's in 5th place!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:46 pm
Netflix won an Oscar!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:46 pm
Schindler's Lift was an elevating film experience. ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:47 pm
I’m glad someone got that. ;)


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:47 pm
So am I! Counting from the bottom....


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:48 pm
Good job, Tam!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:48 pm
Time for a tea break...

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:48 pm
"No, no...It's NOT Ruth Bader Ginsberg!" (Oh, wait, that was "Attorney General Janet Reno".)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:48 pm
and here comes the screeching


James • 2/24/2019, 8:49 pm
Thought I'd let her get that dig in in case she slips up - she might not get the chance again! ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:49 pm
couldn't they have had her sing this in the commercials?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:50 pm
Well that's not gonna win


James • 2/24/2019, 8:50 pm
Four people still perfect: D82, enelra18, GeorgeMonkey, StevenB606


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:50 pm
bette's coming ul


James • 2/24/2019, 8:50 pm
Ha!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:50 pm
five, James. Five people are perfect.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:51 pm
meant perfectly correct


James • 2/24/2019, 8:51 pm
;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:51 pm
Its just that one didn’t pick all the right winners...! ;)

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:53 pm
These odd Google ads are cute. Smug, but cute.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 8:53 pm
Serena?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:53 pm
At least JenHud was short


James • 2/24/2019, 8:53 pm
Why is Serena Williams introducing A Star is Born?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:54 pm
Why?!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:54 pm
Because she’s Gaga on a tennis pitch?

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 8:54 pm
Because...they wanted to make Gaga's shoulders look smaller by comparison?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:55 pm
After Tom Morello, Serena isn't all that odd or surprising to me, actually.


James • 2/24/2019, 8:55 pm
Sound Editing: 34% in our contest chose First Man


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:56 pm
is it Panther again?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:56 pm
BoRap I think


Dan • 2/24/2019, 8:56 pm
Queen gets one


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:57 pm

Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:57 pm

Sound Mixing: 81% in the contest chose Bohemian Rhapsody

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:58 pm
Angie Watts is at the Oscars!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:58 pm
i didne tell you...if we can’t get someone for episode five, it could be a certain Queen member's wife...!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 8:59 pm
Just reminded seeing her there.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 8:59 pm
Ben - I'll HAVE to come and make the tea that day


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:00 pm
hahah...lol


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:00 pm
Bohemian Rhapsody for both


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:00 pm
i think that could be pretty cool.


James • 2/24/2019, 9:00 pm
Yikes. Tami is up to 3rd place with 7 out of 8 right, missing only Documentary.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:01 pm
YIKES!!!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:01 pm
She won't let me or Randall live this down...

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:01 pm
"Episode five"??

Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:01 pm
nothing you need to bother yourself with, Eric. ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:02 pm
where am I at, James? Still second? ;)


James • 2/24/2019, 9:03 pm
:) not bad, at 19th


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:04 pm
2am here, and still surprisingly chipper! Having the chat helps get through these commercial gaps!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:04 pm
Whatever happened to Queen Latifah?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:05 pm
She was hosting a talk show, last I checked.


James • 2/24/2019, 9:05 pm
Foreign Film: 91% in the contest chose Roma


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:05 pm
ah, we don’t get that here then.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:05 pm
ah, we don’t get that here then.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:06 pm
Roma has to be a shoo-in.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:06 pm
Will it "substitute" the Best Picture votes?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:06 pm
Cant think whats gonna win this...


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:07 pm
Unless they think Picyure is a lock and share the love


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:07 pm
Even I got that one.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:07 pm
Shocker


James • 2/24/2019, 9:07 pm
YIKES. Tami didn't pick Roma!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:08 pm
I just asked her why and she said, "I was just picking randomly!"


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:08 pm
My one moment to gloat!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:08 pm
Brilliant joke


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:08 pm
was never not going to be Roma. I think Picture is a shoo-in too. I do need to watch this, although it doesn’t really entice. I wonder, outside the kudos, how much this has really done for Netflix...


James • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
I'm Mary Poppins Y'all!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
bette!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
bette!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
Yay!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
Ha!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:09 pm
Whatever happened to Bette Midler?

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:10 pm
Too much Netflix-hate for Roma at the last minute...But, again, second is first.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:10 pm
she was in a little broadway show called Hello Dolly last I looked ;)

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:10 pm
Blimey she looks amazeballs!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:11 pm
Not the best song in that movie even


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:11 pm
shame they’ve sped this up...she’d have handled it better slower and been able to give it more emotion


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
I still haven't seen Mary Poppins Returns yet :(

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
Ben - she's supposed to be coming to the West End in Hello dolly :)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
everyone should see MPR

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
That was not a great song :(

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
That was not a great song :(


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:12 pm
WHEN?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:13 pm
from August 8th, Rand.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:14 pm
Yeah, not a great song once taken out of the film.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:14 pm
Just had a Que Sera Sera phone commercial, loved it!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:14 pm
We should...oh...


James • 2/24/2019, 9:14 pm
Everyone should just see MP again instead! :)


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:14 pm
Not sure if my leg is being pulled...


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:15 pm
We should...oh...

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:15 pm
It's still only rumour but autumn according to gossip


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:16 pm
Oh well.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:16 pm
supporting actor coming up

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:16 pm
Would love Richard to win but not gonna happen


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:17 pm
yeah
User avatar
James • 2/24/2019, 9:17 pm
I think it might

Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:17 pm
From Black Panther to Batman XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:18 pm
Adam Driver was good too tbf


James • 2/24/2019, 9:18 pm
Film Editing: 59% in the contest chose Vice


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
More Queen love.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
Ottoman should get it


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
I chose Favourite


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
for all the crap he went though on that film


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
oh, good


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
They might be teasing BR winning all five of its nods

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:19 pm
You have to be joking!! BoRhap?!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:20 pm
Only one person on top now: enelra18, with 10 out of 10.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:20 pm
Nope, BR's going to take Actor, as its "reason". (Still picked it for Editing, tho)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:20 pm
will he thank someone...

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:21 pm
Nope


James • 2/24/2019, 9:21 pm
Supporting Actor: 85% of the contest players chose Mahershala Ali


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:21 pm
Nope, no mention for singer


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:23 pm
ali or Grant

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:23 pm
Massive cheer for Richard


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:24 pm
big cheer for Grant


James • 2/24/2019, 9:24 pm
dangit. i went with grant


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:24 pm
no surprise there


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:25 pm
nice hat, tho


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:25 pm
Mahershala has 2 Oscars now

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:26 pm
Ah, poor Richard.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:26 pm
from the director of Dumb And Dumber To


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:27 pm
animated Feature coming up


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:27 pm
Anyone pick anything other than Spider-Verse?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:28 pm
It's always interesting to see directors like Farrelly do a film that's completely a left turn from their comfort zone.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:28 pm
sherlock Gnomes!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:28 pm
So: Will the voters be lazy, or did they actually WATCH Spiderverse?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
Interesting category...could go any way, even though Spidey is hoovering up the equivalent award at every other show


James • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
Animated Film: 93% of players chose Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
Let's go Spidey!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
I wanted Yeoh nominated for Crazy Rich Asians.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
i need to see Spodey


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
or even Spidey.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:30 pm
Incredibles 2 Must Die. :evil:

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:31 pm
Incredibles 2? Really?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:31 pm
YAY!!!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:31 pm
Isle Of Dogs? Really?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:31 pm
Okay...that’s the 4K disc ordered then,


James • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
I thought they limited the number of winners for this award.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
So glad Pixar did not take this one.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
Depends on number of contenders.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
Spider-Verse!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
lizzie too I think


James • 2/24/2019, 9:32 pm
I meant actual people that get a statuette

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:33 pm
Yep :lol:


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:33 pm
*jumping off the walls as if he's Spidey*
User avatar
Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:33 pm
i liked I2 and thought it was funnier than the first, but it got stuck in the sequel trap for sure.

Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:33 pm
Not sure I dig that dress.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:34 pm
The music/cutting the mic seems to be a bit inconsistent


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:34 pm
Another nom for Netflix.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:34 pm
We waited 14 years to see "Mr. Incredible Babysits!"


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:34 pm
its okay, Rand, you dont have to wear it.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:35 pm
I hope the singing horses from iThree Amigos! make an appearance!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:36 pm
I am not a fan of this song :?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:36 pm
it needs singing horses.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:36 pm
Same here, Ben. Same here. XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:37 pm
Why are all the songs so short?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:37 pm
Oooo, a teaser for The Irishman


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:38 pm
To keep the categothat they wanted to put in the ads

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:38 pm
At least we're GETTING them this year--That was the first complaint


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:39 pm
actually, if they cut the ads, they could lose an hour out of this thing! ;)


James • 2/24/2019, 9:39 pm
Not a great year for songs


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:39 pm
Loved the bullet styling of THe Irishman ad!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:40 pm
thatll be Netflix's big push for next year's Oscars!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:41 pm
Are the Verizon ads playing a "cute" version of Philip Glass?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:41 pm
okay, fun to have Wayne and Garth intro BoRap


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:41 pm
I like it. Good job.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:42 pm
nicely done


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:42 pm
Party on!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:42 pm
Should have let them host


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:43 pm
As Wayne and Garth, James XD


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:43 pm
who and who?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
The guy is Spider-Ham XD


James • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
Animated Short: 75% chose Bao

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
Theyre like hilarious


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
He looks taller here


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
Bao is super sweet


James • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
Not a fan of Bao

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:44 pm
Ah, Bao was sweet. Odd but sweet


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
Aquafina was a hoot in Crazy Rich Asians.


James • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
Maybe my least favorite Pixar short

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
Yay


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
yay!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
less than Sanjay?


James • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
........maybe


James • 2/24/2019, 9:45 pm
:)


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:46 pm
Darn, thought One Small Step would win. Made me cry!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:46 pm
or Partysaurus Rex...!? ;)


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:46 pm
Exactly. First it was just weird... until it got awesome.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:46 pm
and just a little bit profound.


James • 2/24/2019, 9:46 pm
Doc Short: 42% in the contest chose Period. End of Sentence


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:47 pm
These two just got a Feature animations


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:47 pm
...gig.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:48 pm
always wide open on that category.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:48 pm
That was maybe the most unintentionally funny quote ever


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:48 pm
I got Period, whoo!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:48 pm
uh oh...

Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:48 pm
did she just say "menestration"?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 9:49 pm
Yep


James • 2/24/2019, 9:49 pm
Over halfway through and enelra18 is still a perfect 13/13


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:49 pm
Reverand!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:49 pm
Was Disney's 'The Story of Menstruation' nominated for an Oscar?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:49 pm
Okaaaay


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:50 pm
No, it was an educational short


James • 2/24/2019, 9:51 pm
CONTEST RESULTS SO FAR: Ben and Tami are tied for 10th with 10/13


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:51 pm
lizzie, did you get my email about Scoundrels?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:51 pm
Go Ben and Tami!!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:52 pm
ibrmacf is in 31st with 8/12 (not 13!)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:52 pm
Gaga coming up


James • 2/24/2019, 9:52 pm
James and Randall are in 46th with 6/12


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:52 pm
If it was 13, I'd have 9, lol!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:52 pm
Yay! Been looking forward to Shallow


James • 2/24/2019, 9:53 pm
Danger... there are 13 so far! Scores are right otherwise


Randall • 2/24/2019, 9:53 pm
Everyone is doing great. I have nearly half right, which I think is great for me--- and I'm still near the bottom!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:54 pm
Ben - yeah bout Scoundrels. Not v impressed with it tbf...


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:54 pm
viz fx coming up too


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:55 pm
you either mexican, or... ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:56 pm
well that will have made a difference. :roll:


James • 2/24/2019, 9:57 pm
VFX - 66% of players chose Avengers: Infinity War


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:57 pm
I think it will be that, although I went for First Man

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 9:57 pm
(Because we all forgot about Ready Player One by now.)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:58 pm
yay!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 9:58 pm
Get in Ben!


James • 2/24/2019, 9:58 pm
Our leader, enelra18, misses their first award


Ben • 2/24/2019, 9:59 pm
avanegers was too obvious and full of lots we have seen before, first man was a real attempt to get back to basics and a real Doug Trumbull style of doing things, so it felt like something they would want to acknowledge.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 9:59 pm
Ready Player One was robbed, imo


James • 2/24/2019, 10:00 pm
I chose RP1 because i thought it was the kind of VFX film hollywood would like


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:02 pm
but first man used vfx to realistically depict real things and did it in a different way. Very impressive, really, other than being just massive CGI spectacles


James • 2/24/2019, 10:02 pm
Not a fan of any of these songs


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:03 pm
I did think all the songs in A Star Is Bored sounded the same.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:03 pm
Not saying I like it. Terrible movie with terrible effects. Thought Hollywood types would like it though


James • 2/24/2019, 10:04 pm
I think I'm liking this quicker paced show

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:04 pm
Love love love that!!!!!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:04 pm
Yeah the quicker pace makes it seem like it's flowing!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:04 pm
well the vfx guys vote for the vfx awards and they know terrible effects when they see them!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:04 pm
Oh Ready Player One is my fave movie of 2018 so far, lol

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:05 pm
I wouldn't know about the song numbers--Since I had my tablet out, I'm playing Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem during the songs and commercials.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:05 pm
must admit it is racing through, even though it feels lifeless and like it’s jusy a run through list of awards and winners.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:06 pm
Out of the songs nominated that's defo the best. Well performed too. Gaga had googoo eyes for Bradders

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:06 pm
At least it's a run-through that LIKES variety numbers--Second time we had Jon Stewart, it was a lifeless run-through that HATED variety numbers.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 10:07 pm
Best song we have heard, yep.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:07 pm
Live Short: 64% of players chose Marguerite

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:08 pm
I really hope Detainment doesn't win! :x

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:08 pm
Good!


James • 2/24/2019, 10:08 pm
Hey got that one... and it doesn't count!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:08 pm
Yes, shallow is the best of the nom'd somgs
User avatar
Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:09 pm
i haven’t seen First Man yet but must say I am looking forward to our screening a little more on Tuesday now.

James • 2/24/2019, 10:11 pm
Orig. Screenplay: 68% chose The Favourite


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:12 pm
And.......


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:12 pm
whoah

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:13 pm
Has The Favourite won anything yet??


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:13 pm
@Liz: Nope. I'm surprised.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:13 pm
Peter Farrelly gets an Oscar. How about that. XD


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:13 pm
well, it was always Favourite or Green Book to win


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:14 pm
amd being a US show it leaned to the US story.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:14 pm
Adapt Screenplay: 76% of players chose BlacKkKlansman

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:15 pm
BlacKkKlansman should get this


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:15 pm
havent seen Klans yet (we're running it next week) but I hope Spike gets it...because he’s well overdue.


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:15 pm
And now Spike Lee finally gets an Oscar XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
Yaaaaay!!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
look at him go!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
Yes man!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
he did the right thing!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
Yay for Spike!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:16 pm
at last!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:17 pm
didnt need to MF tho...

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:17 pm
Spike might be Scorsese'd for Best Director, but this is his official substitute for Picture.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:18 pm
No one else is gonna get mic time


James • 2/24/2019, 10:18 pm
was about to say that!


Randall • 2/24/2019, 10:18 pm
It was Spike's moment.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:19 pm
a stand O for spike!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:19 pm
a stand O for spike!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:19 pm
At least his Director speech will be shorter--He's used it all up.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:19 pm
He wo t get director. That was his time.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:20 pm
Surprising they didn't mention anything about the In Memoriam section yet


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:20 pm
and he’ll get blasted for swearing


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:20 pm
they put In Memoriam in the seventh commercial break!


James • 2/24/2019, 10:21 pm
Marvel representing!


James • 2/24/2019, 10:22 pm
Score: 57% of players say If Beale Street Could Talk


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:22 pm
It won’t win but c'mon Poppins!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:23 pm
Man, Black Panther is just surprising everyone!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:24 pm
Could be Panther again


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:24 pm
but it wasn’t anything special

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:24 pm
Looks like my vote for Picture won't just be wishful thinking. :)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:24 pm
#OscarsTooBlack?


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:24 pm
Gosh, I'm doing so bad this year, lol!


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:25 pm
And speaking of Black Panther... XD


James • 2/24/2019, 10:25 pm
Song: 87% of players chose Shallow


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:26 pm
my vote is for Renee Zellweger for Actress next year


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:26 pm
just chucking that out there ;)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:27 pm
panther wins song over Star Is Bored?


James • 2/24/2019, 10:27 pm
"Academy Award winner Lady Gaga"


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:27 pm
ah, no.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:28 pm
Yaaaaaaaaaaay!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:28 pm
Award, singular.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:28 pm
she was already Academy Award Nominated!
User avatar
Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:28 pm
three times!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:29 pm
Well, like they said, now she has something in common with "Man or Muppet".

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:30 pm
Urgh Mark Robson

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:30 pm
(Now she doesn't have to do all those TV specials with Miss Piggy.)

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:30 pm
*Ronson


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:30 pm
well at least "hotly tipped" A Star Is Born took something home in the end.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:31 pm
here we go with all we’d forgotten died this year... ;)

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:31 pm
This is where I say "I didn't know xxx had died"


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:31 pm
A Superman tune, I hear


James • 2/24/2019, 10:31 pm
must've muted the theater audio


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:32 pm
possibky my favourite piece of STM's score


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:32 pm
"North..."

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:32 pm
Fortress of Solitude!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:33 pm
no, this is the Kent farm.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:33 pm
"always remember us"

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:33 pm
Ah, yes.


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:34 pm
Did they show the wrong picture of Will Vinton?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:34 pm
Some big names this year


James • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
No Carol Channing?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
or Elaine Stritch

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
No Dick Miller or did i miss ?

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
No Stanley Donen, in time for the show.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
nice to hear the somewhat random Williams music thi


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:35 pm
My feed was buffering: did they get to insert Stanley Donen?


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:36 pm
No Donen, I'm afraid


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:36 pm
ueah, they missed Dick Miller and Stanley Donen


James • 2/24/2019, 10:36 pm
Wow. Just 4 awards left


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:36 pm
no "Julie Andrews!" Forhim.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:36 pm
no "Julie Andrews!" For him.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 10:37 pm
And yet, Stan Lee.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:37 pm
well he was a little while, ago now.


Randall • 2/24/2019, 10:38 pm
4 awards? Too late for me to make a comeback, I guess. I can only hope to beat James now, if I am lucky.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:39 pm
whoever thought that BoRap could be the big winner at the Oscars!?

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:39 pm
Breida

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:39 pm
Lol


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:39 pm
"LOL"


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:40 pm
i just heard a song that reminded me of the way we were.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:41 pm
Richard's reaction :lol:

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:43 pm
So, BlacKkKlansman was that good? The ONLY ads I saw were John Washington doing his Richard Pryor white-voice on the phone...That was all the ad.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:43 pm
Actor: 83% chose Rami Malek

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:44 pm
@EricJ I thought it was a really good film!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:44 pm
Again, he had to put up with a lot of crap on that film

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:44 pm
Rami Malek shouldn't win this


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:45 pm
hell get sympathy for putting up with Singer


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:45 pm
and a win for him is also a final nail for Singer

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:46 pm
Stupid reason for him winning tho


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:46 pm
crazy


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:46 pm
Rami Malek!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:47 pm
will he name names...

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:47 pm
Told ya - Consolation prize for any hope at Picture

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:47 pm
Urgh

James • 2/24/2019, 10:47 pm
Yowza

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:48 pm
So, just imagine if they HAD gone with Sasha Baron Cohen, as originally planned


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:49 pm
loved him in the Night At The Museum Movies ;)

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:50 pm
Loved him in Breaking Dawn part 2 :wink:


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:51 pm
:lol:


James • 2/24/2019, 10:51 pm
I loved him in Battleship


James • 2/24/2019, 10:51 pm
(not sure which of those last two were worse!)


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:51 pm
I loved him in high school. True story.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:52 pm
How very dare you :wink:

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:52 pm
I'm actually hoping Melissa McCarthy gets Actress, so she'll turn Important and give up comedy.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:52 pm
:lol: :lol: :lol:


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:52 pm
Lol, it won’t happen but I like the reasoning

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:52 pm
If Tom Hanks could give up "The Money Pit", McCarthy has a LOT to give up.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:53 pm
this is Olivia Colman or Glen Close's to take.


James • 2/24/2019, 10:53 pm
Actress: 85% of our players chose Glenn Close


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:53 pm
Hey, don’t knock Money Pit!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 10:53 pm
Okay, Dragnet, then.=

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:53 pm
US awards so Glenn will get it


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:54 pm
again, Colman got the British Bafta, I think Glen will get the US Oscar.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:54 pm
Definitely don’t be knocking Dragnet! "Look out, Muppets!"


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:57 pm
Stanley Tucci!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:57 pm
Hahahaha


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:58 pm
ooooh, big cheer


Dan • 2/24/2019, 10:58 pm
Colman was fantastic in Broadchurch


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:59 pm
at least the races have been close this year

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 10:59 pm
Wow!!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 10:59 pm
indeed


James • 2/24/2019, 10:59 pm
Only 3 people correctly picked that one!


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 10:59 pm
I got Colman, whoo!


Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:00 pm
lizzie...make sure you click "continue watching¡...it says 1 minute keft


Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:01 pm
repeat of her Bafta speech basically

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:02 pm
God she's being so British


ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 11:02 pm
I keep getting kicked off the chat for some reason


Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:02 pm
going to end with a let’s gets passed joke


Dan • 2/24/2019, 11:02 pm
"Please wrap up, okay." *raspberry* XD


James • 2/24/2019, 11:03 pm
Sorry ibrmacf, not sure what the issue is

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 11:05 pm
What's with all the nasty violent psycho women in the beer, cars, and ABC ads?


Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:05 pm
Kind of feels right for her to take that. The film was such an awards favourite and it’s not got anything much here tonight. I get from Close that her performance in The Wife is a bit too measured, so she would have been getting it as a career achievement. That Olivia won over Close in her home town says that she really did give the best performance.


Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:06 pm
Spike or Alfonso for director next...

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:07 pm
Brilliant to see her go from Peep Show to Oscar winner (with a fair few steps inbetween obvs)

James • 2/24/2019, 11:07 pm
Director: 79% of our players chose Alfonso Cuaron

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:08 pm
Can’t believe we are near the end!

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:08 pm
(and also glad I didn’t fork out a bunch to watch this on Sky...thanks Lizzie!)

ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 11:09 pm
Cuaron! One more award to go!

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:09 pm
Roma for Picture then. Good night everybody!

Randall • 2/24/2019, 11:09 pm
Looks like Roma should have it.

James • 2/24/2019, 11:10 pm
I get that it wasn't as big an "event" but it got the job done and there wasn't much to complain about. I like this format.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 11:10 pm
They can do "Short" ceremonies, without bitterness, anger, or Hipness.

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 11:11 pm
This year, the nominees kicked back on songs and categories.
User avatar
Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:11 pm
True that there was zero flab but there was also zero pizazz.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:11 pm
I don't think it's missed having a host really. A bit lifeless but also no cringe moments

James • 2/24/2019, 11:11 pm
I don't have a problem with that.

James • 2/24/2019, 11:12 pm
BTW - fifth time in the last six years a Mexican director has won the award!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:13 pm
Picture: 68% of players chose Roma

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:13 pm
Good job they were on this side of the wall!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
IF it's Black Panther, my confidence will be restored. But it won't be.

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
Panther for a shocker win!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
Bloody immigrants coming over there and stealing your awards :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
BoRap!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
wow

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:14 pm
its wide open! Roma's to lose though...

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Ooh

Randall • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Huh.

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
wowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowwww

Dan • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Peter Farrelly man XD

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Now that's a shocker

James • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
WAIT... not again!

ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Wow, Green Book!

Dan • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
Not surprised, it won the Producers Guild

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:15 pm
theure going to say it’s the wrong envelope!

EricJ • 2/24/2019, 11:16 pm
Now, see, I thought Roma would be the Second-is-First winner...

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:16 pm
How many people do they want on stage

James • 2/24/2019, 11:16 pm
Just kidding you people a minute behind! :lol:

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:16 pm
oit of nowjefe

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:16 pm
okay, so that’s obviously the Netflix backlash

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:17 pm
"you can compete, you can even win some, but you can’t have Best Picture"

Dan • 2/24/2019, 11:17 pm
While I ended up not being in the contest, I did pick Green Book

James • 2/24/2019, 11:17 pm
enelra18 missed this one, dropping him to second place at the last minute!

ibrmacf • 2/24/2019, 11:18 pm
Well this was fun! Gonna leave now, take care, guys!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:18 pm
Our winner (pending a double check) is D82

James • 2/24/2019, 11:19 pm
Be right back...

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:19 pm
Wow...that all kind of fell apart at the end there

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:20 pm
Omce again, for another year, things got shared around fairly fairly

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:21 pm
Just cannot believe BoRhap won the most

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:21 pm
Roma got Director and Foreign, so that was a big winner, can’t believe BoRap was the biggest winner with four awards!

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:22 pm
what an odd show, really, with a mix of obvious wins and shocker surprises

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:23 pm
almost half 4am here guys...we made it through!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:23 pm
There wasn't really a consensus this year anyway so I guess it makes sense they spread it around.

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:23 pm
Pleased for Gaga and Olivia. Dame Olivia Coleman soon

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:24 pm
Wish I'd booked today off work. Gotta be up in 3.5 hrs!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:24 pm
Yikes!

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:24 pm
Haha...walking Branny to mother!'s at half ten!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:24 pm
Sony Animation's first Oscar was well deserved

Dan • 2/24/2019, 11:24 pm
Man, recently its no longer a given that winning Best Director would mean winning Best Picture.

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:25 pm
Well that has been fun

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:25 pm
glad we got to see it in the end

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:26 pm
thanks Lizzie!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:26 pm
Ben ended the contest in 7th place with 15 out of 22 right (and 17/24 overall)

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:26 pm

James • 2/24/2019, 11:26 pm
ibrmacf and Tami finished 22nd with 13 right

James • 2/24/2019, 11:27 pm
Randall and I ended up with 8 right for 44th place

James • 2/24/2019, 11:27 pm
oops, that should be 9 right for 44th place

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:27 pm
Wait...Tami beat Rand?

James • 2/24/2019, 11:28 pm
Thanks everyone for coming out! Wish these things drew a larger crowd becasue I enjoy them!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:28 pm
She doubled up placement-wise!

James • 2/24/2019, 11:28 pm
My mom made last place :)

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:29 pm
Rand just lost his complimentary seat in my theatre for when he comes over. It’s the corner step for you now, mister!

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:29 pm
Just got a breaking news alert that Olivia won best actress. Big news over here

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:30 pm
yeah...we used to get fair size bigger crowds in here...remember the days of 20 or more names?

Ben • 2/24/2019, 11:31 pm

Lizlak • 2/24/2019, 11:32 pm
