Live Blogging the 82nd Oscars

Live blogging the 82nd Oscars. Having Monday for Off-days has its cool advantages! I need to be grateful to ABS sans the commercials.
Obviously, I have a lot of time for myself and I can't think of another more boring way to waste it. Apologies for typos and the general senselessness that you might read. At least you had been warned!

Here goes:

11:33 AM
Tom Ford and Sarah Jessica Parker are the next presenters for Best costume design. Hope I heard the guy's name right. What is SJP wearing? Sandy Powell of the film The Young Victoria won this award. Period pieces ought to have an advantage for this kind of award.

11:26 AM
Sigourney Weaver takes the stage presents the Outstanding Art Direction. AVATAR takes it first award for the night. I wonder if avatar can also match Titanic in terms of awards.

11:16 AM

11:02 AM
A guy in Avatar costume comes up. I think its Ben Stiller, presenter for best makeup. Scifi films would have an advantage for this kind of award. Just as I thought, STAR TREK takes the award.

10:56 AM
Steve and Alec are back.

Sorry, but I did not get the names of the two lady presenters. LOL! Best animated short film is the next award. The french animated Logorama won it. Producer Nicholas Schmerkin receives the award. Great speech.

10:45 AM
Matthew Broderick with a lady who I have no idea, talking about a John Hughes. A posthumous tribute, I guess. Pars of his film were shown, including Home Alone. And while his family watched, some of the stars who worked with him said some nice words including a grown up Macaulay Culkin.

10:38 AM Manila Time...
Nominees for the Oscar screenplay is shown. HURT LOCKER won this award. Intermission.


After Miley Cyrus and another girl handed out an award, here's my crush, Tina Fey. I wish I was Iron Man Robert.

I just got hold of my netbook and the following just happened.The animated film UP won the 2nd award.

The Nazi commander of the Inglorious Bastards just took the first award of the night.

Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin is this year's hosts welcoming everyone and making fun of themselves and everyone. Liked the script their reading. Well, if it's all ad-lib then I should get the transcripts to follow Steve's advice and get a life. LOL!
