I hope the film manages to overcome this disgusting slight and manages to take top honors anyway.
That's kinda funny, in a way, because I was just telling Travis that one of the small problems I had with 12 Years a Slave was that it was almost a little too happy. I never felt that the protagonist was in any danger, everyone in the film just seemed to naturally like him and so it felt a little Hollywood in that way. But, still, I expect it to win tonight.

I'm kind of hoping for a Director/Picture split between Cuaron and 12 Years.

And this year's Harvey Weinstein Memorial "WTF is this movie doing here?" Award is awarded to...Harvey Weinstein, for Philomena.
I love Philomena a lot, actually. Not my favorite movie this year, but it was good.

Anyways, this is the first year I've seen every BP nom. So proud of myself

"You're all racists."

Gotta love Ellen DeGeneres.

That Ellen jab about 12 Years a Slave winning or not winning was awesome.

Eh.

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie once it's on DVD, though.

I'd like us all to take a moment to let it settle that the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars just won an academy award.

All joking aside, he's fantastic in it.

Leto shut up, way too much time and politics

when top winners get played off, remember how much time he got.
