How does Pixar just get to rip off Herman's Head and not cut WIlliam Ragsdale a check?

No love for Lady Gaga's performance? I'm sure that people won't think that she's not talented anymore.

Another great way to defeat the orchestra playing you off, apparently, is to invoke your son's suicide.

There should've been a record scratch, they stopped so abruptly.

Hey, it's the four guys who couldn't decide amongst themselves what the fuck BIRDMAN was about.

The Birdman backlash is intense.  They need to book him in a match with American Dragonman to get him some cred.

Keaton is going to call Bill Murray tonight and be like "Is Wes Anderson making a movie?"  and Murray will be like "Shit, man, you don't think that's gonna work do you?  I'm like six deep on those and I got jack shit."

 

"Well, I'm FRESH OUT OF MEXICANS!!!"

 

"Fucking Brits man.  Fucking Brits."

Had anyone heard of this Juliann Moore movie before she was suddenly winning a Golden Globe for it?

 

It's like they got to the week of awards season and realized she wasn't nominated this year and filmed and released it over the weekend.

Hey, I hope you saw GONE GIRL before you saw Rosamund Pike's clip.

Seems to me like vote-splitting was the case for best actor.

Okay, Neil, the show is already running 30 minutes long.

Juliann Moor is 54.  That is insane.  I still don't think that's an actual movie.  I'm 75% certain they just filmed that one clip we keep seeing whenever she wins an award.

 

Also didn't Michael Haneke already make that movie just with older people?

How depressing is it that Sean Penn is now the "Old Hollywood glamour" guy they trot out at the end?

The difference is that in Haneke's movie the husband and the wife love each other very much, while in Moore's movie the husband is Alec Baldwin.

Still crossing my fingers for GONE GIRL to run out and cash in the briefcase.

Ooof.  The best picture bits of music just show hos terrible all these scores are.  Repetitive piano riffs are so "serious" sounding I guess, whether you're selling cell phones, insurance, or prestige movies.

 

BRING BACK MAYNARD FERGUSON!!!!

How is it that Matthew McConaughey is now legally required to say "Alright" at every appearance, but Keaton somehow doesn't have to say "Let's get nuts!"

 

Fucking favoritism.

Yeah, great job by them.

At least fucking American Sniper didn't win Best Picture. That war porn movie shouldn't even be in the nominees.

 

I need to see Birdman, apparently.

This was a weirdly uninspiring year.  Normally when I watch the Oscars I get all creatively envious for a few days and I'm all like "Gonna go start writin' that screeeeeplay Grabblblelagooobble!!!!"

 

But this time, nothing.  I'm gonna go grab the paper and check up on the Wizard of Id.  That guy has to get his at some point, right?

Common and John Legend have a lot of people on social media wanting to jump out of windows so that was cool.  Lady Gaga was always talented but she really needed to change some things, evolve.. because her popularity has fallen off a cliff over the last couple years. She's still super popular but she doesn't have the teen crowd nearly as much as she did.

 

This was a solid year for movies I just think they snubbed a lot of well deserving actors/actresses and the star power wasn't there as much as you'd expect. Terribly long show too.

I thought NPH did fine, but the show suffered from not enough funny moments.  I actually liked Harris' jokes and puns, but it was like serious moment to serious moment, pun, then serious moment.  There was no Ben Stiller as Avatar, or Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly singing.  They should have bumped the Lego song to about the halfway moment to get the energy back up.

 

Next year Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu should host.

I would have liked to have seen Pike win. Her performance was essentially "modern day Hitchcock blonde goes beserk." I'm sure Moore is excellent in her movie, although it's interesting to wonder how many people have actually seen it. Or will.

 

And how badly is Patricia Arquette hoping CSI Cyber gets cancelled so she can use her Oscar bounce to do some big movies?

It's hard to have the teen crowd when she's releasing a duet album with a guy their grandparents, if not great grandparents, listened to. I loved Tony Bennett as a teenager, along with Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc (still do), but I'm an old soul and pretty weird.
