I've been trying to catch up on movies I haven't seen.

So I saw Jesus Camp last night (most frightening movie of the year, easily) and just rented Babel, but I don't think I'll manage to see it before the show starts.

The Queen is really the only one of I've missed.

Ellen Degeneres?




I wish Billy Crystal would do it again.

No way! Billy Crystal's schtick is old and tired. He was funny for a while, but it was the same thing every year.

Ellen Degeneres will do a good job, I think. She's funny.

I liked Steven Martin a lot and Jon Stewart ... eh, you know, whoever they have will get some raves and some rants the next day. There's no way you can please everyone.

(Then again, I thought Letterman was hilarious as the Oscar host.)

Ellen is a bit of an uninspired choice, to me. Choices like Stewart and Letterman are more to my taste. But, you have to consider your audience, and perhaps Ellen makes some sense. Just wish it were someone else, she has not made me laugh in a long time.

I've never seen Ellen's talk show, but I've just always liked her. She seems neat.

I forgot about Stewart. He was fantastic.

I've watched her show out of professional curiosity 2 or 3 times and was underwhelmed. I'd not argue against her being "neat", though, sure, why not. Hopefully, she'll do a good job. The question is, am I gonna sit here and actually watch? Living in LA, I get invited to Oscar parties, which I'd never heard of until I moved here. I abstain, but, sometimes will watch a bit on my own. Eh, we'll see.

Same here. I've always liked her so I'll probably watch just to see what she does.

I heard she's wearing tuxes by different designers as the night goes on. I remember on one awards show her wearing a dress and she looked great.

I watch Ellen every now and then, and I find her enjoyable.

I've got some snacks going, and a couple friends are coming over to watch. There's nothing better to do this afternoon, so why not.

I'm a little to say that I kinda want Paul Greengrass to win for Best Director....but I'll understand if Eastwood or Scorsese to win it.


Everything else I'm a little wary about (Even though I have picks) the rest of the main awards (all four acting awards and best pictures) cause I never seen any of the movies

I hope there will be some surprises tonight. It's getting kind of boring seeing the same people win over and over again, though I still would love to see Forest Whitaker win.

Greengrass did an awesome job. But no nominated director whose film wasn't in the Best Picture category has ever won the Oscar. I don't see it happening this year to break that streak.

I think it's Scorsese's year.

Yea...I think so too. I kinda thought it was his year when Gangs of New York had all those nods.

My dad thinks that if he doesn't win this year....they will give him an honorary one sooner or later.

No computer by the TV, so I'll have to check in during commercials. Been watching E with the Red Carpet arrivals.

BTW, LMS won best picture at the Indie Spirit Awards last night
