oscarsAlright, since there seems to be some dissention over who actually won the Second Annual Stale Popcorn Oscar Pick ‘Em, and no one else has done an official count, I figured that I would just list the winners of the awards (along with a link to prove their validity) and list both Gazz‘s and my predictions of who we thought would win (along with the links to our seperate pick ‘em articles to prove their validity)!  Here we go!

    And you promised you’d be pissed if The Duchess won for Costume Design. So, how mad were you?

    And were you able to watch the show? What did you think of Jackman? I thought he was fantastic.

  2. Gazz

    I’m just getting over a viral infection so I was going to watch the show live over the internet but I was so ill I crashed. I watched the highlights package the following night and I was FURIOUS. Jackman’s opening musical number had been left out, as had most of his musical number with Beyonce etc.

    I went back and watched the whole thing over the internet and I thought Jackman did a fantastic job, but there was not enough of him. Jon Stewart / Billy Crystal / Steve Martin (in that order) are still my absolute favourites, but I thought he did a really good job.

    And I loved The Daily Show the following evening, after the Oscars, when Jon Stewart got it stuck to him about how he sucked in comparison. LOL

    I just think there’s really no point in doing the highlights show anymore though, it’s an insult. They left out Jack Black’s great bit of gaggery re Best Animated Picture, most of Ben Stiller’s bit and pretty much ALL of Hugh Jackman.

    Tut Tut!

    PS
    I also am very supportive of him being the new Magnum PI!

    Who knew about Hathaway?

    … Anyone who has watched ELLA ENCHANTED, that’s who!!!

    Like me!

    But I wouldn’t do it twice! Ha Ha

    Not everybody was on top form though. That Bill Maher guy came off as the ultimate douche when he did his bit. I don’t know if it was bad jokes or that his brand of cynical humour and sarcasm just didn’t fit the night of the Jackman at all.

    And how uncomfortable did Cedric Diggory look when he was up there?

    Oh, and congrats your majesty; never doubted you.

  5. Gazz

    Jesus Phil, wipe your nose – you’ve got Kristina’ ass-junk all over it!

    I know what you mean though about Maher. It always bugs me when anyone follows either the In Memorium or anything particular sad and they address it as part of some sort of gag… It’s like “We get it! We get that following on from a sad moment [in this case Ledger's award] is difficult. We know that. But SOMEONE has to do it – so shut the **** up and get on with it!”

    And plus, Religious didn’t deserve a Best Doc nomination. Good flick but the guy himself knows it didn’t deserve it, so don’t ****ing whine!
