I agree the Academy likes some 'safe' picks now and then, but they also, as if by law, throw out some surprises to counter the so-called sure things. I mean, does anyone remember who won Best Actress just last year? And this year, we've already got predetermined wins in Best Supporting Actor- a category that COULD'VE been the most interesting, but instead was reduced to the absolute weakest possible field in order to give it to Heath Ledger and nominate RDJ; Best Actor- The only thing hollywood loves to see more than a falling star is seeing that same star rise again, so as amazing as the others might have been Mickey has to take it, so this way the academy doesn't feel like an asshole(let's face it, Mickey Rourke isn't getting nominated again anytime soon); Best Director- As impressive as most of these director's latest films may or may not have been, Danny Boyle will easily win this for two reasons: 1. Slumdog Millionaire stands out in a relatively dark resume, while the other directors have given us films that can easily be related to and compared with their others; 2. Compensation for the film not receiving Best Picture...I'm just saying that with foregone conclusions in major races, we should expect an upset in the Best Picture category if any.

Yes, Shaan. Great job putting this together! it was a fun couple of hours! You did a much better hosting job than Jon Stewart at last year's oscars...I guess that's not saying a whole hell of a lot, BUT you know what I mean.

Sorry I didn't make it either...to tell you the truth, I didn't even know about it being live like this until I got your email today (at which point I was on the way out the door). Haven't been able to keep up much with school and all...

Oh, no, Jacko. I knew who won, I was making a point. Marion's winning performance was a surprise to absolutely everyone, Julie Christie was supposed to win. And I think she won the golden globe for La Vie en Rose, but I thought her oscar was for la mome? Not that it matters either way really.

I understand your point. I just really think the surprise is more likely to come somewhere else. And I'm dreading it, but I think it might be in best actor. I can just see them giving it to Sean Penn, and that's nothing against Sean Penn, but the award belongs to Rourke.

La Vie En Rose and La Mome are the same film. The US distributor renamed La Mome (The Kid) to La Vie En Rose. I don't know why though. La Vie En Rose sounds too similar to another Oscar-nominated French film (Ma Vie En Rose, 1997) and La Mome is a very unique title and it stands out.

Sorry to have missed the show, was taking the missus out for her birthday. (She dragged me to see Fired Up!, which, actually, I really, really liked... sort of a profanely clever mashup of Bring It On, Stick It, Wedding Crashers and Animal House. Call it Cheer Camp Crashers. I recommend it, fellers, don't be afraid. Sometimes, to get the biscuit, you gotta risk it.)

So, there ya go. My wife gets a new HDMI DVD player, a printer, a fancy schmanzy garden arch thingy and a music / jewelry box, not to mention the Mamma Mia! DVD, and in return I get to see Fired Up! with a bunch of drunken teeny boppers and, because she crashed virtually the minute we got home, as an added bonus (from the Department of Redundancy Department) am virtually guaranteed to have absolutely no sex whatsoever, not even a little bit, not even technically. My cup runneth under.

[Sigh] At least TiVo recorded BSG and Cities of the Underworld. Huzzah.

You do seem like a big fan of bad teen movies made for video or Cinemax (because they don't make them for the drive-in anymore), Swedge.

Well I've heard two opinions on Fired Up now. I have to say, I am going to have to believe Banks on this one, who said it was every bit as bad as you would think. Now, this is the last time anyone is allowed to mention Fired Up! on our awards page. If you want further discussion, look elsewhere.

Wow, that was a great show. Terrific job to all.

Let's hope my Razzie version can be half as good. (Which will air sometime Monday night.)

You know, I saw Fired Up! today as well, mainly cause we were bored, and I kind of liked it quite a bit as well. The two main actors really delivered the lines well together...found it quite enjoyable. It's either go big or go home...

Glad to see someone else liked it. I thought the two main characters were a perfect twentysomething version of Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. Though it was a little disconcerting how much the one guy, who reminded me so much of Torrance's college-aged bf in Bring It On, was trying to channel early Jim Carrey. AND early Bon Jovi.

Sometimes Man, I just don't get you... But this brings me to a more serious point... People are actually seeing this movie??? AHHHH what is this world coming to? It was supposed to be a surefire miss, lucky to bring in 10 million. Now what am I supposed to think?

Perhaps the PG-13 rating and lack of competition (along with the people who actually read Maxim) are helping things?

geez: What's to "get"? I like films from all sorts of genres, especially if they're well-done, and I'll say this for being married to a former drill team member and sorority chick, and until very recently Cheer Commissioner of a 90,000-population city: I get to see lots of films that wouldn't otherwise be on my radar, and not all of them are bad. (Many, many are, however.) If you liked American Pie, Wedding Crashers, Superbad, Meet the Parents, Caddyshack, Revenge of the Nerds and Animal House, you'll at least get a few chuckles out of Fired Up!, I promise you. And you'll roll your eyes some, too, but I bet you did with those other films I just mentioned, too.

At least you can say this about me: I ain't predictable. Unless I'm predictable for being, well, unpredictable. [Grin]

Um, Nico, did you just compare Fired Up! to Superbad? Shocked

That's like comparing The Dark Knight and Catwoman.

[Sigh] I DIDN'T say they were the same quality of film or anything. (Consternation! Uproar! 'E's a witch!) Nor did I rank Fired Up! alongside Caddyshack, Animal House or Meet the Parents. But, yes, if the humor in Superbad -- and those other films I mentioned -- appeals to you, then I don't think Fired Up! will be quite as terrible a filmgoing experience as you might suspect. It's certainly better than any of the other rom-coms I've been held hostage to so far this year: Bride Wars, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Four Christmases. Even He's Just Not That Into You, which was halfway decent I thought, pales in comparison.

Anyway, I'm done justifying my non-hate of Fired Up!. See the movie or don't. Leave your mind open to new experiences or don't. Agree with me or don't. [Shrug] It's a free country.

Thanks for presenting the Fanties Shaan, it turned out a real success. I'm glad I managed to make it for a bit too, I thought with the awards going on in the middle of the day I would probably be out. But then when it came to the crunch I realised I don't have that much of a social life in the first place and we just sorta crashed in for half the day before we went to a friend's birthday bbq. So I got to present my featurette (sorry 'bout the length, I get carried away with TDK) and witness a good portion of the event. A decent amount of the awards went to nominations I had hoped would win, and they were generally well spread around. Nice to see Let The Right One In get an award. Actually, I did just think that Benjamin Button didn't win anything. That's a shame. And did Wall-E? Oh well, at least it was generally well spread. Nice to see In Bruges win too. Great awards!

And Swedge!, if it makes you feel any better, I got my wife drunk and had my own wicked way with her last night. So, y'know if at least somone is gettin it on here.....
