It’s Ten PM here… this should, in a perfect world, be the last hour of the telecast.
It would be, if the show started at 7 PM, and ran to form. We’d be watching the major awards being presented, recipients would have plenty of time to talk and generate memorable moments, and it would all end before 11 PM, possibly even 10:30.
But typing this at 4:50 PM, I doubt we won’t see any majors until 10:30, if we’re lucky. Let’s see if that’s true.
10:00 Rita Ora.
10:02 Nine awards of 24 so far. It’s gonna be a long night.
10:03 Visual effects. Interstellar. A shoutout to the scientists!
10:06 Animated Short. (Nice dress!) Feast.
10:09 Great intro! Animated Feature. Big Hero 6. (I hope they mention the comic book creators and Marvel on the “thank you” cam…)
10:17 The AMPAS President. #jesuisoscar
(Crap… lost my text….)
Nice set. Who designs those Production Design title cards? Production Design: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Cinematography: Birdman (That was a very flattering dress!)
10:30 Meryl Streep In Memoriam Oscar Deadpool…. who will be forgotten?
10:43 Film Editing Whiplash. FUCK. Boyhood really should have won… 12 years, two different editing platforms…
10:49 Documentary Feature: CITIZENFOUR
10:56 15 of 24 awards. 5/8
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
